Round 1: Keith Peterson the ref. Overeem throws first, and Rothwell to center. Overeem comes in with knee to the body, which glances Rothwell. Big one-off type shots early. Now they exchange, and Rothwell fires a couple of short punches into Overeem's grill. They collide like slabs and then bounce off one another. And again, and it looks like Rothwell might have clipped Overeem a little bit as he wobbles. Rothwell, thinking he has hurt him, drags him to fence but Overeem holds on. They separate. Overeem with a kick, and then a foot stomp. Another body kick from Overeem, and BOOM! Rothwell lands a shot -- a right hand to the top of his head -- that drops Overeem. Now Rothwell now pouring it on. Big right hands from Overeem's back, and they are all landing. It's over! Rothwell has pulled a huge upset in Connecticut! Petersen calls off Rothwell, as Overeem shakes his head in protest.
