Round 1 - It was a tale of two halves. Nice right hands from Ogle put Corassani on his backside twice, though Ogle wasn't able to do much to capitalize on it. But a big Corassani right hand halfway through the round gave him the momentum and had Ogle circling rather frantically outside for much of the rest of the frame. gives a 10-9 first round to Corassani.

Round 2 - Much slower pace to start Round 2, with both fighters trying to find some range and see what is going to work best. Both have some near misses, but there's nothing too drastic for either fighter. With 90 seconds left, Ogle is able to get the fight to the floor and tries to tie up Corassani's neck. Whether there's enough there for a guillotine remains to be seen as Corassani stays calm and tries to scramble out. Ogle keeps him tied up on the fence and continues to look for the choke. He's controlling things here, but there's not much damage taking place. He lets off the choke as the round end nears and starts to throw flurries. And just after the horn, Corassani lands a right hand that puts Ogle on his butt. It's a 10-9 round for Ogle on the card.

Round 3 - Ogle motions to Corassani to bring it as the round starts. The two get in tight and trade, and Ogle looks for a takedown. Corassani fends it off, though, and just misses an uppercut. As Ogle misses a right and slips to his knee, Corassani times a kick nicely to just to the point he's not grounded. OGle, though, again looks for a takedown and Corassani is staunchly warned for grabbing the cage. As Ogle again works to bring things to the floor, Corassani gets another warning. Ogle is tying things up on the floor, though he's nog yet doing any damage with fists or working very realistically for a choke of any kind. Finally, the crowd cheers as Ogle looks for some elbows and fists. The crowd chants for Ogle. He lands more elbows. There's honestly not a lot happening, but apparently there is just enough going on to not warrant a standup. Ogle will ride out the frame controlling things on the ground, and he'll get a 10-9 final round on the card, and the fight 29-28. Akira Corassani def. Andy Ogle via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 29-28)
