3. Welterweight bout: Seth Baczynski (16-6) vs. Simeon Thoresen (17-2-1)
Big John McCarthy is our referee. Hopefully, this ends quick because I don't feel like typing up Baczynski 30 times. They begin feeling each other out. High kick by Baczynski blocked. Leg kick by Thoresen. Stiff jab by Thoresen. They trade combos that graze each other. Cut on Baczynski's upper lip. Thoresen hits him there, followed by a leg kick. They tie up, looking to clinch. And break. Combo by Thoresen connects, followed by a leg kick. Right by Thoresen. Accidental eye poke by Baczynski.
Thoresen takes a minute to recover and resumes action. Body kick by Thoresen. Huge left hook by Baczynski sends Thoresen hard to his knees. Facedown. Big John pulls Baczynski off Thoresen. Baczynski has now won four straight inside the Octagon and six straight fights overall.
