Round 2: Kelly uses the superman fake again to land a solid combination and adds some hard one-punch shots in his follow up. Cerrone starts working in the low kicks and follows with a right hand, but Kelly is starting to use his own kicks now, setting up his jab. Cerrone gets his own jab going as well and is cracking Kelly’s lead leg with the right low kick. He then times the shot for another takedown, quickly taking half guard position. Cerrone moves to full mount, dropping down an elbow and a couple punches that get the blood flowing around Kelly’s right eye again. Kelly tries to escape, but Cerrone takes his back, locks on the body triangle and peppers him with punches. Cerrone locks on the rear naked choke and that’s all she wrote, Kelly taps out.
