Florian dominated the first round with his crisp left jab. The opening round was pretty much a boxing match, however Gomi wasn’t as active or as accurate as Florian.
The second round was much the same, however a lot less exciting. There were some boos as the fighters hit their corners.
Florian was a lot more aggressive in the third round, and ended up finishing Gomi with a rear-naked choke in the middle of the round.
