Scott Jorgensen vs. Danny Martinez

We take a trip to the flyweight ranks for the first time tonight, as Scott Jorgensen faces off with Danny Martinez.

Round 1: Just incredible strikes being thrown by both fighters, and Martinez is the one landing the better blows. He’s coming right after Jorgensen, peppering him with lefts and rights. Jorgensen’s seen enough of that and takes Martinez down. He quickly works to the back and is trying to get his hooks in. Martinez gains wrist control and works to get free. For the second time, Martinez gets too far and Jorgensen scores with a takedown. Nice suplex, as Jorgensen breaks him down and is trying to lock up a rear-naked choke. One more suplex for Jorgensen, as he scores with a belly-to-back. While Martinez is working to his feet, Jorgensen lands a nasty right. Martinez works hard to get up again, only to have Jorgensen toss him back to the canvas. Martinez slips free, unloads, but gets off balance and taken down again. Jorgensen working for a possible guillotine, but has to release it.

Another pair of lefts land by Martinez, as the corner of Jorgensen tells him to “bite down on that mouth guard.” Big breathes from Martinez and Jorgensen cuts the distance. Jorgensen takes advantage, catching him with a combo. This is going to fill like a long two minutes for Martinez. Takedown for Jorgensen, who takes the back and lands a nice right.
