-Rodrigo Damm vs. Rashid Magomedov

Round 1: Knowing full well Damm would want him on the ground and subject to his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills, Magomedov keeps his opponent at bay with body-kicks and jabs. It’s an effective tactic, and with about 40 seconds left in the round the Russian beans him with a right hand that puts Damm on his butt.

Round 2: Sick of absorbing kicks to the body, Damm decides to try to get close and land punches. Unfortunately, he fails to set up his forward movement, and nearly every time Magomedov boxes the hell out of him. A takedown attempt by the Brazilian finally comes in the last 30 seconds, but the Russian wiggles free.

Round 3: Damm’s sense of urgency has him clinched and struggling to get Magomedov down against the cage, and yet it’s to no avail, and the two begin throwing hard leather. Damm actually manages to score a bit in that regard. It’s too little  too late, but hey, at least he tried.

Results: Rashid Magomedov def. Rodrigo Damm via Unanimous Decision
