If Daley catches you with a clean hook, you are almost certainly going to lose the fight. After a brief feeling out period in the opening round with Semtex landing a couple of jabs and Ribeiro peppering with some low kicks, Rodrigo attempts two takedowns half way thru the round which were stuffed by Daley. At that point Semtex was more relaxed mixing his punches .Rodrigo finally got the takedown but not much time for the BJJ veteran to work his game from half guard .
Round 2 started with Semtex being the aggressor .Charging in and going for the kill , Daley managed to drop and pin Ribeiro close to the fence , pounding his way and dropping bombs to win by KO. Here’s the finish:
