The two begin exchanging on the feet early. Djursaa lands a nice knee at the end of an exchange. Bucci is active with kicks both high and low, and looks like she has hurt the Dane and rushes forward with punches and kicks. But Djursaa looks to recover now. Again, big right from the Italian followed up by a flurry. Djursaa gets the fight to the ground, and moves forward.

The Dane is working hard to get this to the ground but Bucci defends well against the cage. Nice left jab again from Maria. The two are against the cage again, and Djursaa lands a sneaky knee to the face. Again the two exchange hard punches, without a true fighter taking command.
Bucci is coming out big in the third, landing heavy punches… left and rights. The visitor is bloody, but moving forward looking for a finish in this high paced fight. Nice double-leg take-down from Djursaa and she has Bucci with her back against the cage. What a fight! Bucci battles to get up for a bit, and now she grabs a single leg, but Djursaa looking for a guillotine, but lets go. Now the two are standing again, and a big fight hand from Bucci who continues to move forward. Big right kick to the face from Bucci. The Dane can take a shot! Thew two are throwing elbows back and forth, mixed in with punches. What a fight. Evenly matched battle.
Djursaa’s left eye is swollen as she awaits a decision. Buccie looks to have a cut on her forhead that will require some stitches, but she smiles and gives a thumbs up.
Annalisa Bucci wins by decision.
Mark O. Madsen (Denmark) Vs. Chay Ingram (England) -70 kg
Bellator fighter Mikkel Parlo is in the corner of the Olympian.
Madsen is composed as he shakes hands, looking very relaxed. Once the gloves are touched it’s the wrestler that moves forward with striking. A barrage of punches from the Dane, and Ingram is covering up. A quick shot from the UK fighter, but it is easily stopped and Madsen gets behind and a suplex to the ground! More ground and pound, and Madsen is looking for a finish. Both are standing after the wild exchange on the ground, and on the feet Madsen is moving his head nicely as he looks for a kill shot. A right hand seems to have rocked Ingram, and he is on his back as Madsen throws hands. Again Madsen’s punches have hurt Ingram. Ingram lands a punch, and Madsen takes the fight to the ground. Ingram scrambles, and Madsen starts on a front headlock, but switches to a guillotine and stands up finishing it as Ingram’s feet dangle in the air.
Madsen wins by standing guillotine.
