Marlon Sandro vs. Akop Stepanyan - Round 1 - Akop just misses a spinning head kick. Knee by Akop and Sandro is looking for the takedown and has the waistlock from behind standing against the cage. Akop grabs the fence to not get taken down and gets warned but that does little since he has escaped. Right hads by both men and Sandro's landed harder. Akop throwing a lot of fancy spinning kicks but not landing any of them. Flying knee does land a bit now for Akop. Sandro gets the takedown now at the end of the round. 10-9 Akop i guess.
Round 2 - Akop lands a hard punch and tries for the spinning back kick again and now again and that one landed to the head. Now Akop lands some hard punches and Sandro is badly hurt. More punches land and now Sandro looks for a takedown and Akop reverses to end up on top. Akop backs off and forces him to stand back up. Sandro lands a body kick. Akop keeping the pressure up and lands a spinning back kick to the body. Akop with another right hand. 10-9 Akop. Before the start of round 3 the referee takes a point from Akop for the cage grab so 9-9.
Round 3 - Sandro gets a takedown early and he's in half guard looking to pass. Referee stands them up. Akop misses another spinning kick and Sandro gets the takedown again. Sandro picking him up and slamming him back down. Sandro works him over to the cage and starts grinding away with punches. 10-9 Sandro makes it 28-28 in my eyes. An overtime round could be coming but we'll see how the judges have it officially.
Official Scorecards: 28-28, 29-27, 29-27. Marlon Sandro wins by majority decision.
FFL: Silva, Silva, Nogueira, Nogueira... Franklin.
