IN WITH THAT PUNCH.

HE WILL LAND IT EASIER.

KARAPETYAN IS DEFENDING IT TO

EASY.

>> WELL, A TIGHT FIGHT.

COULD THIS FIFTH AND FINAL ROUND

DECIDE IT?

>> VERY TIGHT FIGHT.

IT'S ALL ABOUT IS THIS A CLEAN

MARKSMANSHIP OF KARAPET OR IS IT

THE BRUTE FORCE OF THE KICKS,

LOW KICKS THAT ARE KNOCKING

KARAPETYAN TO THE MAT.

IT'S A MATTER OF HOW THEY SCORE

IT.

IT'S A VERY CLOSE COOTEST RIGHT

NOW.

A VERY INTERESTING TAKE.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THE JUDGES

WILL LOOK AT IT.

YOU SAW THE STATS EARLIER.

OF COURSE, DeBONTE HAS THE

ADVANTAGE IN THE POWER SHOT.

KARAPETYAN HAS LANDED A LOT OF

CLEAN SHOTS.

VERY BUSY THE LAST FEW ROUND.

MANAGEMENT.

THEY PUT THE CLOSE FIGHTS

TOGETHER.

SCORECARD.

WELL, A LOT OF PUNCHES AND KICKS

THROWN.

MORE POWERFUL ONES FROM DeBONTE

EARLY ON.

MORE CLEAN SHOTS FROM

KARAPETYAN.

KARAPETYAN REALLY TURNED IT ON

IN THE LATER ROUNDS.

DUKE, THIS IS A TOUGH ONE.

I'M GLAD I'M NOT JUDGING.

GOING TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE CROWNED

THE GLORY WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION?

>> I THINK KARAPET EDGED HIM

OUT.

MORE STRIKES THROWN BY KARAPET.

IS IT'S MORE THROWN OR MORE

HITS?

>> IT'S A BACK AND FORTH ACTION

IN THE WELTERWEIGHT DIVISION.

WE CHECK OUT THE HIGHLIGHTS.

>> AGAIN, DeBONTE SWARMED HIM

EARLY ON IN ROUND ONE.

HERE'S EARLY ACTION.

GREAT RIGHT HAND BY KARAPET.

BACK AND FORTH.

ROUND THREE.

THERE'S WHERE, YOU KNOW, AGAIN

HE WAS TRYING TO SWARM HIM A

LITTLE MORE.

NICE HIGH KICK.

SUCH A BACK AND FORTH AFFAIR.

GREAT JAB THERE.

THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A KNOCKOUT.

THAT WAS CLOSE.

>> IT WAS CLOSE.

AND DeBONTE REALLY HIT THAT

CANVAS HARD.

SLIP OR KNOCKDOWN.

IT WASN'T RULED A KNOCKDOWN.

THAT'S A EY.

BUT HE HIT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD

HARD ON MAT.

>> AGAIN, I DON'T WANT TO BE A

JUDGE IN THIS ONE.

GREAT FIGHT THOUGH.

WELL MATCHED.

AGAIN, THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW

YOU THE DEPTH OF EVERY DIVISION

IN GLORY ESPECIALLY THE

WELTERWEIGHT DIVISION.

KARAPETYAN CAME IN AS THE NUMBER

2 RANKED FIGHTER.

DeBONTE NUMBER 6.

DeBONTE MADE IT CLEAR HE SHOULD

BE RANKED HIGHER.

DOESN'T EVERY IGHTER SAY THAT?

>> ALWAYS.

IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU'RE THE

BEST, DON'T FIGHT.

THEIR SCORES.
