Abdi Farah vs. Danny Mathiasen
Round 1 – Danny is very aggressive from the start, taking the center and pressuring Abdi towards the cage. Danny gets a quick take down. After a long scramble Danny ends in Abdi full guard. Danny tries to create some space for punches, but Abdi is crafty from the bottom and gets a couple of nice short elbows in. Good pressure form Danny, not giving his opponent any room or time to recover.
Both fighters get up and starts trading punches in the center. Danny gets another takedown, but Abdi immediately gets up. Danny has slowed down a little, and Abdi swings for the fences. Danny moves forward, but is met by good counter striking from Abdi. Another takedown from Danny, into half guard, against the cage right in front of Abdi corner. Danny lands some nice short left hands, but Abdi recovers to full guard.
The bell sounds, first round is done. Great pace so far!
Round 2 – The two combatants trade wild shots in the middle. Abdi is getting the cleanest hits in, but Danny secures yet another takedown – into full guard.
Danny lands an elbow and tries to pass the guard. Abdi once again gets a short elbow in from the bottom and works relentlessly for sweeps. Abdi threatens with an armbar/triangle from bottom, but Danny defends and end up in side control. The fight is very even so far. Abdi is a little more defensive from the bottom now, perhaps the pace is wearing on him. The last two minutes are spent in a limbo. The bell rings.
Round 3 – Abdi takes the centre for once, and Danny is circling on the outside, Danny tries for a hook kick, but it only grazes his opponents chin. Danny shoots for a single, but is denied. Good hard low kicks from Abdi. Danny hits big and follows Abdi to the ground. Abdi is full on defensive and Danny tries to close the deal with ground and pound from half guard. Good defence from Abdi, who recovers to full guard. Relentless top pressure from Danny, who keeps his opponent busy on the defensive the rest of the round.
