155lb Lightweight Bout; Yosdenis Cedeno (9-3)  vs Jerrod Sanders (14-1)

Round 1: Fighters circle for 40 seconds and Yosdenis lands an inside leg kick, Cedeno then lands a hard counter right and drops Sanders and Cedeno swarms. He lands wildly but Sanders covers up and is able to bring Yosdenis to the mat. Jerrod basically lays on him to re-gain his composure but Cedeno sweeps Jerrod to take a dominant position from guard. Yosdenis lands hard ground and pound, strike stat shows Cedeno is winning 28-4 in the category, he then lands a body knee then small left hooks on the ground who could have only had a better round if he finished. Jerrod had to be helped to his stool. Lower half of Sanders leg is injured surprisingly based off the first leg kick Yosdenis scored and the fight is over.

Official Decision: Yosdenis Cedeno def. Jerrod Sanders via Fighter Retirement at 5:00 of Round 1.
