Round 2: Spong with several attacks in succession, as he appears to be loosening up. Surprisingly, DeAnda hasn’t tried for a takedown at all. Instead, he’s just allowing Spong to constantly attack his leg and pick him apart. DeAnda isn’t going anywhere, continuing to attack Spong. He’s throwing lefts and rights, trying to pull the upset. Big overhand left by Spong connects, while DeAnda fires off a right.

Round 3: Spong forces DeAnda to stop in his tracks with another nasty inside leg kick, but he continues to fire back with lefts and rights. More of the same, as Spong is landing his kicks, but can’t follow up with anything to put DeAnda away. Honestly, DeAnda never really threatened to do anything to Spong after the early stages of the first, but he survived this 15-minute battle.
