Round 1: Neil Hall is the third man, as we kick this fight off at 2:17am Swedish time. Corassani wheels around and Sicilia comes in with a leg kick. Feel out period. Sicilia tries a push kick, and now moves in and roughs him up on cage. A small flurry there, and they tie up. Sicilia in the clinch, now he eats a right hand on the break. Corassani with a leg kick. Now he misses on a high kick, and Sicilia counters with a great combination. Leg kick again from Corassani, and Sicilia returns the same. Sicilia stands and throws a couple of heavy shots from range, which grazes Corassani. Still, Sicilia holds the center, and Corassani circles. Corassani comes in with a one-off cross, and then backs out again. When Corassani comes forward with a right, Sicilia again counters nicely, and slams home a good right. BOOM! Corassani just got knocked out. A big right hand that lands flush, and Corassani was out on his way down. The Swede Corassani came in with a big shot and left himself open in the exchange, and Sicilia -- who prides himself on his power -- found his black spot with a right hand. Beautiful knockout.
