Jodie has some serious heart and with a couple failed takedown attempts on Hill the first round came to an end.</p><p>Right where she left off, Jodie was back at it again with the constant forward pressure and although her output was high… she just couldn’t seem to land much. Angela eventually realised using her kicks as a defence more often would keep Jodie’s pressure at bay as she landed some incredible fluid leg strikes. Jodie’s excessive and careless pressure fighting nearly got herself knocked out at the end of round two, she was lucky for the fight not to end. One thing I have noticed about Jodie is her gas tank, for 15 minutes straight she was constant… maybe if she paced herself a little more, she might have some added power for the later rounds.</p><p>Round three was all Angela, Jodie was on it again with the forward pressure but Angela would just dodge and counter with some beautiful striking. The fight goes the distance and the referee lifts the arm of Angela Hill exactly like we predicted, job done!</p><ul> <li><em><u>Angela Hill def.

Roberts landing significant leg strikes preventing Gifford’s forward pressure. Roberts level change, and as expected landed his first takedown with ease. Ground control for the experienced wrestler in Roberts was heavy. Complete control from Roberts in top control and transitions ended the first round that Roberts certainly had in the bag.</p><p>Roberts landed absolute heat starting the second round, Gifford received combos to the chin and took it like a champ. Back to the ground, we go, as Roberts locked in another takedown on Gifford midway through the second round. Gifford was unable to get to his feet similar to the first round. Another round locked down by Roberts.</p><p>Gifford is durable, I’ll give him that. He even managed a takedown in the third round and some top control… but only for a small amount of time passed before Roberts scrambled to his feet. Another takedown from Roberts, then it was ground and pound until the fight was over. It was more than obvious that Roberts was going to get the nod.</p><ul> <li><em><u>Roosevelt Roberts def.

Anyway, Dmitrii started this fight off looking worried and as soon as he felt the power of Hardy, I could tell it was going to be a short night. Every strike Hardy threw was a bomb in the form of a hand, it was a matter of time before Dmitrii would be knocked or on the end of a technical knockout. Two minutes 15 seconds to be exact, Dmitrii attempted a takedown and missed. Hardy dropped him with a punch then pounced him on up against the cage, reigning down with strikes eventually the referee Keith Peterson was left no choice but to stop the fight.</p><p>Well, Hardy finished up this week’s episode of Punching Parlay in style. We have now gone 9 events and provided a winning parlay/accumulator each and every week with not a single loss. Keep your eyes peeled next week for the final episode of the season, as we attempt a tenth straight victory.</p><ul> <li><em><u>Greg Hardy def.

His early speed slowed right down after tired arms came into play.</p><p>Round two seemed to be swaying in Glover's favour, after weathering the early storm from Ion the pace has slowed down. Knockdown from Glover came close, but the fight resumed. After a mistake, Glover ends up on top which spelt bad news for Ion. Glover transitioned from guard to half guard then straight into a full mounted position, Ion squirmed and gave up his back… Light work for Glover as he locks up the choke and finishes Ion in the second round.</p><ul> <li><em><u>Glover Teixeira def.

They broke momentarily, then back against the cage led to Cowboy taking Perry’s back. Both guys exchanged well, Oliveira seemingly came out on top. Both Oliveira and Perry could have been close to finishing the fight, what an eventful first round it was.</p><p>Round two shows Perry throwing serious leather, after surviving a combo from Oliveira his counter strikes dropped Oliveira. From a grappling exchange, Perry proceeded to elevate and slam Oliveira to the floor, impressive stuff. Perry manages a takedown on Oliveira which is surprising considering Oliveira is dangerous on the mat, Perry landed heavy ground and pound before the round ended. Lovely to see Oliveira have his toe popped back into place, damn son!</p><p>Perry seemed to be the fresher and more confident fighter in the third round, waiting and praying with the counter punch Perry continues to land the more significant strikes. Oliveira was lucky to avoid a knockout on multiple occasions. As the third round came to an end, I think Mike Perry had earnt the right to have his hand raised.</p><ul> <li><em><u>Mike Perry def.
