Bowling opened up the fight with multiple kicks to the body. He then shot a quick takedown but couldn't get the fight to the ground. Saling and Bowling trading punches against the fence and neither fighter is trying to defend at all. It's Saling who landed the more powerful strikes which forced Bowling to shoot for a takedown. Bowling attempted an armbar and Saling regained his feet. Saling again throwing reckless punches which landed square on the chin of Bowling. Bowling didn't like any of those shots and took the fight back to the mat. Bowling transitioned to side control in the crucifix position and peppered Saling with strikes. Saling much like a turtle on his back with no clue how to defend the position or regain his guard. Bowling passed to mount as the round came to an end.
The second round barely started before Bowling took the fight back to the ground. Bowling transitioned to crucifix position quickly and continued to beat down Saling with short punches. Impressive win for Roger Bowling. So long Brandon Saling!
