Mann vs. Corey Wiki Update Wiki

Mann and Corey fought in a Featherweight Tournament Quarter-Final on the main card.

The fighters exchanged strikes early, with Mann increasing his tempo as his speed seemed to throw Corey off. Corey landed a nice counter and pushed Mann into the cage, but Mann separated and circled away. Mann dropped Corey with a beautiful right cross counter then allowed Corey to stand. Corey landed a takedown near the end of the round and worked some short punches until the bell.

Mann went to work with leg kicks in the second while Corey began to find more success with his boxing. A pair of right crosses landed for Mann. Corey got another takedown and went back to work with short strikes from the half guard. Mann attacked from the bottom with an Armbar but Corey defended. Corey maintained control for the remainder of the round.

Mann landed some nice combos to start the third round but got taken down after the opening minute. Mann had no answer for the much larger and stronger Corey on the ground and continued to eat punches as he struggled to attack with submissions from his back.

The judges scored the bout 29-28 across the board for Mike Corey, giving him the victory and a pass to the Semi-Finals of the Season 6 Featherweight Tournament.
