Back vs. Brum Wiki Update Wiki

Back and Brum took to the cage for the opening bout of the main card in the bantamweight division.

Brum landed a body kick then a knee in the clinch before pushing Back into the fence early. The fighters traded knees to the legs and body before separating and Brum stayed on Back with constant forward pressure. Brum went to work with his right leg, punishing Back's legs and body with kicks. Brum pushed Back into the fence again and worked everything from foot stomps to shoulder strikes, eventually driving Back to the canvas. Brum passed to half guard and fired off a series of elbows to Back's brow before the horn.

Brum attacked with leg kicks right away in the second as Back had no answer for his pace. Brum fired off a big combo that has Back covering up then shot in for a takedown that Back defended with a tight Guillotine attempt from the closed guard. Eventually Back released the hold and Brum continued his steady assault from the top. Back cage-walked to his feet but Brum stayed on him with strikes from close range. An exhausted Back offered nothing in return as Brum continued to pick him apart with punches and kicks, varying his targets greatly.

The third round continued the story of the first two, with Brum chasing Back around the cage and brutalizing him with punches, kicks, and knees. Back defended against the strikes well enough, but failed to dodge many and threw almost no counters in return. In effect, the fight was a display of Brum's unflagging pace and Back's ability to absorb punishment.

The judges scored the bout 30-27, 30-26, and 30-25 for Brum, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.
