Fight Recap: The first round was filled with nothing but technical difficulties, making it hard to know what exactly happened. Both announcers scored the round for Perez, so I’ll trust them and say he was up one after one. Thankfully the technical difficulties cleared up in the 2nd round. Both men scored with takedowns, and while neither did much damage, Perez achieved the more dominant positions. Perez also got the better of things on the feet, landing the cleaner and more powerful shots. Perez should be up 2-0 after 2. McVeigh scored a couple of takedowns in the 3rd round but didn’t do a ton of damage with them. In fact, Perez was busier off his back than McVeigh was on top. The round ended with Perez on top as well. The 3rd round was close, but Perez should take the decision.
Result: Erik Perez def. Paul McVeigh via Unanimous Decision
