Brad tries a take down and fails so he presses Darius up against the cage where Darius tries to pull guard but both combatants make their way to their feet quickly. Yancy drops Mitchell with a right but Mitchell gets up only to eat another left followed by two leg kicks and Darius takes Brad down to to end the round.

Round 2: Brad lands a winging hook but Darius takes him down and takes his back rather quick, Yancy fails on two straight RNC attempts but Brad reverses fortune to put himself into a mount position.  Then Brad takes Darius’ s back and legitimately remains there for the remainder of the round failing to secure rear naked chokes.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
