Liveblog: UCL Part 2
It's time for Storm vs. Rashad. Wearing his judo gi as usual, Storm wades in and puts Rashad on the mat, but the Brooklyn Fight Factory rep is strong and feisty and keeps bucking Storm off, throwing punches whenever he can. It's all over in Round 2 when Storm falls back into a heelhook and forces the tap out. New Gen Karate stud Chris Corr is in the ring now to face grappler Alejandro Richardson. Wow, this is turning out to be the most technical grappling battle the UCL has ever seen. Richardson starts out all over Corr, going for sub after sub, and amazingly Corr escapes every one of them. The New Gen Karate fighter gets some payback with some ground and pound in Round 2, and though Richardson gains the upper hand in the third - securing himself the unanimous decision in the process - no one can really be called a loser in this one. Both Richardson and Corr look ultra-impressive.
