Khalil Rountree was a runner-up on a season of TUF, which, I don’t know, makes him either a better fighter than most or a worse fighter than most. Who knows, these days. Paul Craig was a regional UK fighter before going 1-1 in the UFC, so here’s hoping he’s not gun shy about banging it out!
The fight begins with Craig moving and trying to batter his foe with kicks, while Rountree is in hot pursuit and looking to get close enough to unload. This goes on for a bit, until Rountree does in fact get close enough to unload – and his fists of firing are flying and soon taking their toll. Apparently Craig has forgotten that he’s allowed to punch back, and that lapse has him collapsing to the canvas and eating more fists until the referee jumps in.
