White vs. Bezems Wiki Update Wiki

In the first quarter final fight of the evening, the Lions Den Vernon White takes on Dutch Thai boxer Cees Bezems.  Bezems comes out and throws a left right combo that just grazes White, who ducks under for a double leg, planting Bezems on his back.  Cees lands some hard shots from his back  to White's head, causing Vernon to cover up and bury his face in Bezems' chest.  Cees continues to rain blows to the top of White's head.  White postures up and Bezems attempts a couple up kicks, but White grabs hold of a leg and drops back for a heel hook, eventually securing it and eliciting the tap after 2:10 of fight time.
