Season 9’s bantamweight tournament concluded tonight with a bout between former champ Joe Warren and Travis Marx.
In the opening round, Warren almost immediately secured a takedown, but wasn’t able to hold Marx down for long. Marx was barely back up to his feet though when Warren secured another takedown, picking up and slamming his opponent to the canvas. Marx worked for an escape as Warren went to work from half guard, but found himself dragged back down as the round concluded.
The second round opened with yet another takedown by Warren. Marx worked his way to his feet, but paid for it with a huge knee. Marx crumpled and Warren finished him off with a few punches.
Warren now advances to a bantamweight title shot.
