Jeremy Spoon vs. Daniel Straus - Round 1 - Leg kick by Straus. Straus catches Spoon in a standing arm triangle but can't finish and Spoon manages to escape as Straus tries to take his back. Hard eft hand by Straus and he follows in in with a takedown. Spoon trying to get to his feet but Straus is doing a good job of keeping him down. Now Straus has him turtled and he's landing knees to the body but Spoon gets up. Spoon with a huge low blow and Straus is hurt and is being given five minutes to recover. Straus doesn't use the whole five minutes and they're back to it. Jumping knee by Straus sends Spoon backward and now a big left hand. Left hand by Straus again and now a hard leg kick. Head kick by Straus is just blocked and another two left hands and the round ends. 10-9 Straus.

Round 2 - They trade early leg kicks and Spoon shoots but can't get a takedown. Spoon pushing him into the cage now. Hard straight left and a hard kick by Straus and now a low blow and Spoon is given time to recover. Good leg kick by Straus and Spoon lifts his leg after it lands, showing it hurt him. Nice counter left by Straus and another and that stung Spoon. Spoon charges for a takedown and can't get it. Spoon pushes him into the cage but Straus turns him, lands an uppercut and a knee. Another hard leg kick and Spoon is not liking those. Spoon clinches him, lands a few knees to the legs and gets a takedown for a second but Straus is back up and turns and now gets his own takedown. Straus opens up with nice punches. Straus with an axe kick to the body as the round ends. 10-9 Straus.

Round 3 - Spoon tries to push the pace and Straus with a sneaky inside right. Spoon is eating a lot of leg kicks and his leg is bright red, showing the damage. Spoon having some better moments this round, landing some punches but Straus always gets the counterstriking and comes back. Nice right by Spoon. Spoon holding him against the cage landing some short right hands. Good two punch combo by Spoon and now Straus with a head kick and right hand. THe round ends and it was close, certainly Spoon's best but I still think Straus' cleaner striking won it 10-9.
