Round 1: They touch gloves and start in quickly. Soto looks amped up, but he’s eating some crisp shots by McDonald. Soto’s aggressiveness costs him, as McDonald drops him with a big right hand counter on a leg kick. Soto manages to recover and get to his feet, but McDonald is all over him. McDonald buckles Soto again with an uppercut against the cage, leaving him shrimp-backed against the fence with a few follow-up shots.
Michael McDonald defeated Alex Soto via knockout at :56 of round 1
