Round 1: Cane using his six-inch reach advantage early, utilizing low kicks and firing off punches from a distance. Nedkov is trying to find an opening to get inside of Cane’s reach. But Cane is doing a good job staying out of Nedkov’s range. Cane lands a solid combination of punches about three minutes into the round that rocks Nedkov. He follows shortly thereafter with a straight left to the nose and then kicks his legs out from under him. Nedkov is immediately back to his feet, but looks a little wobbly. Nedkov clips Cane with a punch that staggers him back. The Bulgarian keeps the pressure on, dropping Cane to the mat with several more punches, he keeps firing away as referee Mario Yamasaki stands and watches a defenseless Cane take punch after punch to the face before finally stepping in to stop it.
