Tyson Griffin vs. Thiago Tavares

Round 1: Tyson hit a good kick and took Thiago down about 2.5 minutes in the first round. Fast paced round with Tyson coming ahead on every exchange. I score it 10-9 for Tyson.

Round 2: Tavares hit a big flying knee early in the round to shake up Tyson and have the advantage. Tavares got on Tyson’s back and nailed him with a series of punches before Tyson reversed it in 2:30 of round 2. Fast paced round that went back and forth. Tyson dropped Tavares with 40 seconds left in the round, cutting Tavares. Great second round. I’d score it 10-9 for Tavares.

Round 3: Both fighters were visible tired, however Tyson dominated the round. Great fight. I’d score the third round 10-9 for Tyson.
