R1: Shlemenko commits to a few punches and changes levels for a deep double but Marshall is waving it off from his butt before he stands back up and breaks the clinch. Marshall shells out an inside low kick. Spinning back fist from Shlemenko, who shoots again but can't get the takedown. Marshall uncorks a combo and Shlemenko throws another spinning back fist before nailing a duck-under double leg.
Marshall closes his guard, then pushes the Russian off and hits a nice ankle pick sweep from his back. On the feet, both squeeze the trigger hard and often, landing mutually. There's a brief and awkward pause for a potential low blow received by Marshall. Marshall heaves a pair of huge rights but gets stung with a Bas Rutten style hook to the body. Shlemenko unloads the fury of Mother Russia directly onto Marshall's liver with two more left-handed bullets that crumple him.
