Ouch nobody bet on him but that doesn't stop Shamhalaev.

Shahbulat Shamhalaev vs. Rad Martinez

R1: Ah yes, the glorious "USA!" chants start us off. Shamhalaev not even bothering to keep his hands higher than shoulder level in the face of Martinez' striking. Shamhalaev is lightning fast to counter a Martinez high kick by catching it and pasting him with a right low kick and left hook; Martinez goes down momentarily but he's right back up.

Martinez lands a nice straight left but Shamhalaev answers with harsh low kicks. Martinez shoots beautifully for a single and then switches to a double to put Shamhalaev on his back with 1:30 left. Shamhalaev scoots back to the fence to wall walk but Martinez smothers him to maintain top control. Shamhalaev gets back to his feet as the bell sounds. Wow, this is the first round I've had to score all night. 10-9 Shamhalaev for winning 3:30 of the round on the feet.

R2: Shamhalaev slams a right hand to the body, then follows with a big right upstairs. Another right to the breadbasket from Shamhalaev. Martinez tries to pivot right with his left hand but gets countered.
Shamhalaev puts Martinez on roller-skates with a high kick; Martinez pops back up but he's visibly wobbled and
Shamhalaev backs off and punches his off-button with a clean right.

Shahbulat Shamhalaev defeats Rad Martinez by KO (right cross), Round 2.
