A decent, if not great showing as we start the first preliminary of the evening. The men touch gloves and both fighters exchange leg kicks. The Pellegrino MMA-trained Roddy looks to be the aggressor of the two in the early going going after McLean. Roddy misses on a right hook but follows up with a one-two that only does a little damage. McLean is doing very little to start this opening round. Roddy comes in for a combination and McLean counters, but again with very little punches on either side. A whole lot of nothing from this opening round as McLean seems to be struggling with Roddy's range. Roddy moves in on McLean, allowing McLean to connect with a one-two. Very little of significance in this opening round until a very late takedown by McLean puts Roddy into the fence. It could be enough to give McLean the round, but Sherdog.com scores it 10-10.
McLean (right) vs. Roddy
McLean tries to come in on Roddy to start the round and catches a right hook for his troubles.
