      These girls both traded some decent punches & leg kicks, but for the most part, I thought the first round was a bit underwhelming. I don't think either fighter did enough to clearly win that round. They traded a few random strikes to start the second round, and then Damm clinched with Clark's back halfway through the round, and tried to drag her to the ground. Damm's lead leg was torn up from Clark's leg kicks, but Damm was riding her back with 2 minutes left in the second round, so the leg damage might not matter. Damm landed a few decent punches from back mount, while she continued to dig for a rear-naked choke, but Clark did a good job NOT giving up her neck. Round two goes to Damm, so I guess I have her ahead going into the final round?
     The second round started with Damm's corner dropping ice all over the cage, so that delayed the fight a bit so she could recover, and then once they cleaned that up, she pointed out that her finger was sticking out of her glove, so that gave her more time to recover as well. When the fight finally started, Damm was dancing around the outside edge of the cage, while Clark continued to chip away at her with leg kicks. Damm's lead leg looks like it's going to fall off, so based on that detail, I'm going to go back and give the first round to Clark, so I have this fight all tied up going into the final round. Clark dropped Damm with an inside leg kick with 90 seconds left in the fight. I'm scoring this fight 29-28 for Clark, based almost entirely on those leg kicks. It took forever for the judges to add up the scorecards. They were split, and two of them agreed with me, giving Clark the biggest win of her career. Damm kind of looked like shit in this fight, and Clark took the fight on 2 weeks notice. That was a really big win for Clark.

      These first round started with both girls throwing wild punches, clipping each other with some decent shots, and then they clinched, and Faria tripped Damm to the ground around the one minute mark, landing inside Damm's guard. Faria kept standing up, and Damm was hammering her with some chainsaw upkicks. Faria landed some decent punches from the top, but Damm was teasing her with the possibility of an armbar attempt, so Faria never really looked that comfortable inside Damm's guard. Faria moved to full mount in the final 15 seconds, and landed a few solid shots. Round one goes to Faria.
     They started the second round by trading some clunky looking punches. There weren't a lot of hightlight reel worthy attacks happening in the second round, but Faria probably landed the cleaner shots for the most part, and was moving forward a little more often, so I have Faria ahead 2-0 going into the third round.
     They continued to trade shots in the third round, and Damm slapped on a decent standing guillotine choke, but Faria slipped out of that and reset. They continued to trade at a decent pace in the third round, with Damm finally starting to open up a little more. I'm tempted to give that round to Damm, just to keep things interesting, but Faria could potentially be up 3-0 going into the fourth round. Damm needs to turn it up a couple of notches.
     The fourth round started out with an aggressive clinch, Damm pressed Faria against the fence, and then Faria threw Damm to the ground with a hip toss, landing back inside Damm's guard. There was a wild scramble, Damm went for an omoplata, Faria slipped out, Damm kicked her in the face, I THINK by accident, so the fight was paused since Faria was down when she got kicked. After a brief rest period, the fight continued. The clinched again, Faria took Damm down again, and at this point, Faria is more than likely ahead 4-0 going into the final round.
     The fifth round had Damm still plodding around the cage with her clunky looking striking, she landed one good spinning back kick to the body, but for the most part, Damm looked like she had never fought before. Faria on the other hand, looked like she was working some sort of cardio kickboxing strategy, not really looking to finish, mostly just bouncing around and throwing random strikes. Damm REALLY looked shitty in this fight. Faria didn't look great, but she still clearly won the fight, and she's the first ever Titan FC Women's Bantamweight Champion. Damm slapped on another guillotine attempt in the final 3 seconds or so, but it was too little too late. If she would have had a few more seconds, she might have been able to do something with it, but nah... Faria wins the unanimous decision victory.

      This fight looks pretty sloppy, but it's wild. Alpar dropped Damm early in the fight with some punches, Damm got back up and rocked Alpar, knocking her on her ass. Damm jumped on her, tried to finish her with some punches, and then grabbed her back. They stood back up, and reset. That was a wild opening minute. Alpar clipped Damm with some punches, and then Damm returned fire, and Alpar fell to her knee again for a few seconds. They traded strikes at a decent pace for the rest of the round. I scored that first round for Damm.
     They both looked tired in the second round, but they continued to brawl for most of the round, until Alpar scored a takedown with 30 seconds left, and I thought that was going to secure the round for Alpar, but Damm slapped on an armbar, and nearly finished the fight with 15 seconds left, but Alpar was able to hang on until the bell saved her. I have Damm ahead 2-0 going into the final round.
     The final round was another wild round of brawling, with Alpar limping around, and Damm's right eye was bleeding. Alpar was moving forward, looking more aggressive, but I thought Damm was landing the better strikes. This fight could potentially go either way, but in my opinion, Damm won this fight 30-27. All 3 judges agreed, giving her the fight 29-28 across the board. Great fight overall.

      Carina Damm came out like a bully, whipped Akano down to the ground, and wrestled the shit out of her for a little while. Akano's ground game looked dangerous though, as she was constantly looking for various arm & leg submissions. I'm not really sure who won the first round of this fight. The second round started, and Damm landed a nice spinning back fist, but Akano was then able to take her to the ground. Akano struggled a little bit to stay on top, but with a bout one minute left in the second round, Damm rolled her over, ending up on top, and Akano locked on an armbar from her guard, finishing the fight via submission in the second round. Really nice submission victory by Akano, against a tough chick, in Carina Damm.

      Damm showed some really nice striking in this fight, and was constantly moving forward, sort of bullying Helsel around the ring. Helsel tried to work from the clinch a little bit, but for the most part, her clinch felt like it was stalling. She was still scoring from controlling the fight though I guess, and she DID land a few nice punches & knees in the fight. The third round was basically just a dirty brawl, with both girls swinging away, hoping that the fight would stop with a finish. In the end, it was a fairly close fight, but I'd give it to Damm, and most of the judges agreed, giving her the majority decision.

      This was a pretty good fight. Lots of clinch work, with Damm looking like she MIGHT be the better striker, but Sexton is scrappy as hell, and she held her own on the feet, but was tripped by Damm, causing them both to fall to the ground, where Sexton was able to lock on an armbar from the guard, finishing the fight via submission in the first round.
