Round 1: Penner lands the first big shot, a left hand to Perosh’s temple. Somewhere in one of the ensuing exchanges, Penner suffered a mouse under his left eye. They clinch up, Perosh putting Penner on his back, but Penner reverses to top, lands a few ground and pound blows, then stands Perosh up. Penner now bleeding from under his left eye. Perosh clinches and presses Penner to the cage. Perosh lands a hard knee to the midsection on the break then shoots a single leg takedown and scores it, landing in half guard. He immediately opens with some short elbows to Penner’s face. Perosh moves to mount, dropping bombs. Perosh has a solid base, continues dropping punches, then slips off to the side briefly to attempt and arm triangle. He doesn’t get it, goes back to unloading with punches until the referee stops the fight just before the horn sounds for the end of the round.
