Round 1: Referee for the first fight on the main card is Wernei Cardoso. Octagon girl blows a kiss, and here we go. Silver with some inside leg kicks out of the gate, and Jason overhand right glances. Here's another right from Jason, not much doing. Silver comes in quick at center with rapid-fire jabs. HUGE right hand from Jason lands flush, and Siler is hurt! He is standing there gathering his wits, and boom! Jason slams home another shot and it's over! Violent stuff from Jason. Siler protests almost immediately, but it's over. Big overhand right then a left hook did the damage, then as Jason went to go land a blow on the ground, the referee called him off. Siler was in the process of throwing an upkick, and was vocal with referee as he waved the fight off. Maybe a little premature.
