Thoresen walks into the cage, looking confident. He hugs Mohsen Bahari before going into the cage. Big John McCarthy is the referee for the match.

Round 1
The two standup for the first 30 seconds with little happening, just each fighter looking to land punches. Both fighters try some low kicks, and use their jabs.

Baczynski has a cut on his lip, and has landed a few punches. Helf-way through the round, and Thoresen is showing he is confortable keeping it on the feet. The grin is wearing gray shorts, with a Norwegian flag. Leg kick from Thoresen. An eye poke from Baczynski, but the Norwegian is OK. After a short break, the fight is back on.

Thoresen Looking Good Midway Through Round

Thoresen goes for a kick, but Baczynski lands a huge punch to drop Thoresen. The fight is over, with a perfectly placed left hook sending Thoresen to the mat, with Big John McCarthy stepping in to save the fighter from any aditional damage.
