      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Soukhamthath dropped Martinez 90 seconds into the opening round, but he wasn't able to do much with it, so Martinez recovered, stood back up, and then pressed Soukhamthath against the fence. They continued to trade strikes back & forth, and then Soukhamthath rocked Martinez again to finish the round, and Martinez was barely able to hang on to make it to his corner. Round one could be a 10-8 round for Soukhamthath.
     Martinez covered up early in the second round, and Soukhamthath unloaded on him with knees to the body, and wild punches to the body & head, and then the referee randomly stopped the fight and warned Soukhamthath for a low blow that never happened, and then the fight continued immediately after an awkward forced handshake. That stopped the momentum of Soukhamthath, and Martinez was able to take him down with the fight started back up. Martinez used the bad call from the referee to steal the round with ground & pound. I have this fight all tied up going into the final round, but Soukhamthath MIGHT have won the second round, I'm not really sure.
     The final round was another back & forth round of striking, with both guys landing a lot of elbows, Soukhamthath probably landed the cleaner strikes, Martinez controlled the clinch, and neither guy showed much actual wrestling. I honestly don't understand why these guys were on the main card. Martinez is making his UFC debut, and Soukhamthath is 1-3 in the UFC, AND they're Bantamweights. Soukhamthath took down Martinez late in the round, and in my opinion, won the fight, 29-28. All 3 judges agreed, giving Soukhamthath the unanimous decision victory.
