Mike Pierce was the definition of a grinder in his decision win, Joey Beltran controlled Pokrajac against the fence while landing great dirty boxing, and Mendes pulled off an expected first round finish over Meza
Igor Pokrajac vs. Joey Beltran Beltran made a statement in the first round with his dirty boxing. Early in the round he pushed Igor against the cage. He alternated between pressuring with takedown attempts and short, violent flurries before clinching up. He had Pokrajac reeling for a second, but Igor caught him with a shot of his own. Second round, Pokrajac lands solid on the feet before getting wrapped up by Beltran again. They're broken up after a Beltran low-blow. Beltran lands with a brutal flurry mixing uppercuts and hooks. Pokrajac showed a huge weakness in the clinch in this fight. He got bullied throughout the fight by a significantly smaller man. Fantastic use of body shots by The Mexecutioner in every round. Joey Beltran won the unanimous decision (30-27 x 3) victory over Igor Pokrajac.
