Round 1: Big John McCarthy the referee. Cerrone throws Martins to the ground after a quick exchange. Body kick by Martins lands, and might've got to Cerrone a little bit. He returns fire with a leg kick. And another. Martins changing levels, throws a combination and clipped Cerrone on chin. Cerrone stills stalks forward, and tries a push kick. It misses, but he keeps hacking the legs on Martins. Very loud leg kicks from Cerrone. Cerrone tries a head kick, and it actually flies too high and misses, so he comes back low and kicks Martins leg again. Nice body punch by Cerrone. Now Martins opens up, fires a left that finds a home, then follows with a right. Cerrone nonplussed. He holds the center, and in orthodox stance tosses the left jab in volume. Nothing much happening. Martins bouncing, and staying active. He's trying to time out a counter. Cerrone again with a push kick, and follows up with right. Now a jab, but Martins gets a nice counter left. Cerrone briefly takes Martins down, and they grapple for a brief moment before jumping back up to the fight. Martins in southpaw stance eats a jab and his head whips back. Cerrone dekes and comes in with another right. Huge head kick lands! Wow! Cerrone drops Martins with a right leg to Martins head, and he was out on his feet as McCarthy came in. Cerrone didn't need to follow-up. He knew it was over! Huge head kick right into the neck/lower chin below the ear lobe. Shin music. With the leg kicks, he froze Martins and got him to drop his hands, which made his head a wide open target, and he put the kick right on the money.
