R1: Cramer floors Cooper with a right hand counter during a lazy low kick attempt. Cramer jumps into the recovered Cooper's guard and snakes to half guard, then interestingly goes back into Cooper's full guard. Back to half for Cramer. Cramer uses the headlock to control Cooper while slipping his leg out for a pass to side control. Cooper tries to spin out and grab a single but Cramer takes his back and puts one hook in while fighting to get the other.
Cooper turtles and Cramer gets the other hook in and rolls onto his back while seeking the rear-naked choke. Cooper drops some elbows to Cramer's thigh. Cooper bucks him off and almost gets mounted, then explodes again to reverse into top position a few seconds before the bell. 10-9 Cramer.
R2: Cooper doesn't set up the double and can't get it. 50/50 clinch that stalemates as Cooper can't grab the single. Cramer bombs a pair of knifing knees from the Thai plum when he gets some space, then another. And another as soon as Cooper threatens to drop levels. And another, each coming betwixt unsuccessful Cooper double leg attempts. Changing to the single bears no fruit and Big John McCarthy restarts them.
Cooper sticks to him again and again he's countered with a strong Thai plum from Cramer. Now Cooper tries to counter the plum knees with uppercuts and he digests a good 4-5 knees, then a clipping left hook on the break. Another left lands for Cramer, then an uppercut. Strong 10-9 for Cramer.
R3: Cramer gets the better end of the opening striking exchange, then continues to thwart Cooper's clinch game with the Thai plum. Cramer looking nice on the feet and throwing tight heaters. Lunging left hand is good for Cooper, who's following it up with charging 1-2's. Cooper darts in, steps back and unloads a big right hand, and lands a solid takedown attempt.
Cramer scrambles back up and they're trading leather with Cooper increasing his volume. Cramer lands another Plum knee but gets shellacked with a brutal uppercut when chasing Cooper down. He's wobbled, and Cooper sights in another uppercut to put him on roller-skates, then finishes him off with a few thunderous rights. Stellar comeback and laudable spirit shown by Cooper there.
