205lb Light Heavyweight Bout; Jake Heun (5-3) vs Kendrick Miree (5-1)
Round 1: Miree lands a hard right then a knee followed by a take down where he quickly takes Jake’s back. Heun attempts to stand-up and succeeds but Miree lands another knee and another to the body of Jake. Kendrick dictates the pace along the fence but Heun opens up with a right-left combo of hooks of his own, Kendrick throws Jake to the ground and takes side mount. Fighters tentatively circle each other and Jake lands a hard left, Kendrick fakes a superman punch and gets another take down to end the round.
Round 2: Kendrick lands the only shot, a leg kick, in the first minute of the round, then lands a light front kick to Jake’s body. Jake answers with a hard right, but ducks right into a hard knee by Kendrick. Heun pressures Miree on the cage but is reversed in position, time is called for a new mouth piece for Kendrick. Heun lands a stiff jab then a right hook that stuns Kendrick, then he lands a left and is pushed along the fence and the round ends but not until Jake lands hard elbows and punches on the side of Kendrick’s face.
Round 3: Jake opens the round with a hard left hook, and barely misses a right. More circling in the cage than a scantron sheet, and Kendrick lands a brief take down. Both stand up and Jake misses two over hand rights. Heun lands a right but eats a knee to the body, before Miree gets another take down, but yet again not for long. Heun lands a nice left and bloodies Kendrick’s face, Heun lands a left and the round and the fight end.
