Ruediger vs. Taylor Wiki Update Wiki
In a preliminary card bout that was aired on the pay per view telecast following the main event, Paul Taylor took on Gabe Ruediger.
Taylor came out early and landed good combinations to Ruediger. The fight moved to the clinch where Taylor finally broke free and continued to unload with powerful combinations. Ruediger brought the fight to the clinch again, looking to wrestle Taylor to the ground, yet was shaken off and onto his back. Again Ruediger looked to bring the fight to the mat but Taylor's defensive wrestling enabled him to stay standing. Referee Kim Winslow broke the fighters up from the clinch where Taylor again won the next exchange. The round ended with Ruediger unable to avoid yet another series of punches that landed flush, and having not completed a takedown attempt.
Taylor started round two landing again and preferring to stay standing despite an opportunity to take top position on the ground. Ruediger was overwhelmed standing with the moments in the clinch his only respite. Ruediger desperately worked to get the fight down again, and as Taylor broke free he unloaded a combination of punches to the head capped off by a gruesome left kick to the head. The kick sent Ruediger straight down to the mat where Taylor landed one more unnecessary combination to cap off his impressive KO victory.
