Nick Pace (TSMMA) vs Ahmet Kayretli- 135lbs Championship
Pace wins via rear naked choke in round 3
Pace successfully defended his bantamweight title against game opponent, Ahmet Kayretli. Pace broke-through in the middle of 3rd round when he was able to change levels and secure a fight changing takedown. Once the fight hit the ground, Pace wasted no time going to work and displaying his grappling dominance over Kayretli. Momentum had swung in Pace’s favor as he secured a near submission finish and followed it up by establishing full mount. A brief flurry of ground by pound by Pace caused Kayretli to give up his back and allow Pace to lock up the fight sealing rear naked choke submission. Congratulations to Nick, you displayed the heart and determination of a champion and we look forward to seeing back in the cage soon.
