Tickle squirms free underneath and regains his feet, but Cruickshank nails an inside trip and brings the fight back to the floor. Tickle lands a big upkick on the floor, but Cruickshank is kneeling, so Mazzagatti deducts a point. Tickle fires off on the restart, landing two punches before pressing into a clinch and looking for a takedown.

Round 2 - Cruickshank misses an early spinning kick, and Tickle comes back with crisp punches up the middle. Cruickshank kicks the leg, but Tickle pushes forward and wraps the neck, looking to roll for an anaconda choke. Cruickshank rolls through it and takes top position yet again. Tickle scrambles underneath and tries to circle out to the back, but Cruickshank is alert and stays on top, eventually settling into guard. Not much there, and Mazzagatti stands them up. Lead kick from Cruickshank lands on the restart, before a right hand from Tickle floors him. Tickle settles on top. Cruickshank holds tight to prevent his opponent from landing any serious blows.
