Good call again, John, Straus by dec:

Round 1 - Straus holds the center early, and he misses on a high kick. He switches stances and ducks under a Darabedyan punch for a takedown. Darabedyan sprawls an controls the head. He tries to land a knee, then releases and backs awya. Darabedyan has a high kicked blocked. Straus flurries into a clinch, but Darabedyan circles off. Knees from both inside. Darabedyan's looks a little crisper, but as he backs away, Straus flurries and finishes with a high kick. Darabedyan kicks low. Straus with a reach advantage, and he lands a right hand that staggers Darabedyan. As Straus moves in to deliver more punishment, Darabedyan scrambles up.

Darabedyan earns the trip and tries to take the back, but Straus is right back up. Darabedyan drops and attacks the leg. Straus works free, but Darabedyan is there to gain back control. Straus rolls, and Darabedyan finishes in side control. Nice back and forth action. Close round, and thinks Darabedyan may have stolen it at the end, 10-9. Legitimate case for a 10-10.

Straus does leap in with a straight, but he eats a counter. Straus kicks to the body. Traded shots again in the final seconds. The few toe-to-toe scrambles were fun, but much less action to score. sees it narrowly for Straus, 10-9, based on the clean shots that did land.

Round 3 - Straus misses an early attack, and the two clinch. To the floor, and Straus takes the top. He's immediately in mount. Darabedyan trying to scramble underneath, and he does regain half-guard. Struas only able to sneak in a few punches before being forced to worry about maintaining his top position. He spins looking for an advantage that isn't there. The two return curiously to the feet, almost in a gentleman's agreement.
