Westin Wilson vs. L.J. Hermreck

Hermreck is 3-2. Wilson is 4-2. Hermreck fights out of Wichita, Kansas in the black trunks and blue gloves and Wilson fights out of Orem, Utah in the red gloves and trunks. Our referee is Jason Herzog.

Round 1: Wilson takes the center and Hermreck paws at him with a left. Wilson keeps walking with his hands down low around his waist and his chin straight up. Hermreck tags him with increasing frequency as a result. As we pass the two minute mark he’s mixing in leg kicks with his left hand as he circles while Wilson keeps trying to close the distance. Wilson comes forward and eats another left. You can see his nose turning red as he gets caught again and again. Wilson tends to throw combos that miss, while Hermreck tends to land hard counters that land. 10-9 Hermreck.

Round 2: Wilson ties up with Hermreck immediately to open R2 and takes him down right to his back with a body triangle looking for a rear naked choke. Hermreck taps out at 55 seconds.

Final result: Westin Wilson wins via rear naked choke at 0:55 of the second round.
