Round 1:
Uncharacteristically, Cerrone comes out firing, landing a mix of strikes, Horodecki firing back with punches. Cerrone lands an accidental low blow when going for an inside leg kick, something he had a problem with against Ed Ratcliff. They start right where they left off, trading blows. Cerrone scores a takedown and moves immediately to mount, but Horodecki escapes back to the feet, where they start trading punches, Horodecki landing a hard right up the middle. Cerrone Thai clinches briefly and knees Horodecki in the ribs. Horodecki separates and shoots, eating a knee on the way in. Cerrone slows the pace, almost lulling Horodecki into his countering range. Cerrone lands another knee to the body as Horodecki shoots. They separate and trade a few blows before Horodecki scores a takedown, landing in Cerrone’s guard. Cerrone, however, does a good job punching up from his back. They get up and Horodecki moves in, but Cerrone tosses him to the ground and takes his back to end the round.

Round 2:
Horodecki takes Cerrone down early, but gets caught in an omo plata. Cerrone adds a neck crank, lets loose, but then sinks a triangle choke. Horodecki remans calm, trying to fight it off, but Cerrone keeps the triangle on, continuously adjusting, cinching the choke on tighter until Horodecki finally taps out.
