A more composed Tarec Saffiedine was able to earn the unanimous decision over Roger Bowling. The longer the fight went on, the more it favored “Sponge” whose technical striking and superior grappling proved too much for Bowling.
“I think the technique. I have awesome coaches and they helped me out with my technique. I felt really great tonight. I had a really awesome training camp,” said Saffiedine.
While Bowling was definitely game, Saffiedine was a little more polished and capitalized on “Relentless”” fatigue and ground game.
The win is the third straight for the Team Quest member who advances to 12-4. After solid victories over Tyler Stinson, Nate Moore and James Terry, Saffiedine looks poised to take a shot at the Strikeforce Welterweight Championship.
When asked about challenging Nate Marquardt for the belt, he replied, “Yes sir. Who is with me for the title?”
Bowling was less fortunate, however as he drop to 11-3 with the loss.
