Estevan Payan vs. Alex White
To the featherweight division next, as Estevan Payan meets up with Alex White.
Payan (14-5) is in need of a victory after two straight losses last year to Jeremy Stephens and Robbie Peralta. Prior to that, he had won five straight and was 7-0 with one no-contest in his previous eight.
White (9-0) is making his Octagon debut after two straight first round finishes on the regional circuit.
Round 1: White is throwing leg kicks and backing Payan up. He catches him with a combo and Payan is done. He gets dropped and White follows up, unloading with several shots. He wasn’t defending himself and the ref has stopped it. Payan doesn’t have a real protest, as he wasn’t defending himself at all.
