In the second televised bout of Shark Fights 14, Layne Hernandez took on Gabe Vasquez.
Hernandez scored a takedown early, yet Vazquez immediately threw up an armbar from his back and had Hernandez defending in deep trouble. Hernandez escaped and took Vazquez's back in an explosive start to the fight. Hernandez positionally dominated as Vasquez tried to escape from full mount, then back mount again. The round expired with Hernandez still on top, working to get out of half guard.
Hernandez got a takedown into side control early in round two and quickly took Vasquez's back. Vasquez looked to throw a big knee as he escaped to his feet, just missing Hernandez's chin. A moment later Vasquez landed one, sending Hernandez to the ground and with blood starting to flow. Hernandez, on top, worked for a triangle choke that he couldn't secure. The action continued at a quick pace until the round ended.
Vasquez threw first in round three, snapping Hernandez's head back. Hernandez darted forward a moment later with a takedown but left his neck exposed. Vasquez tightened up his guillotine until Hernandez, refusing to tap, ultimately went out from the choke a moment later, forcing referee John McCarthy to dive in and call the exciting fight off.
