LAST ROUND.

THE KNOCKDOWN.

HIGH KICK GOATS THROUGH, BUT NOT

MUCH DAMAGE.

PUT THE EXTRA POWER IN THE

LENGTH AND REACH ADVANTAGE.

THIS IS WITH THE FOLLOW UP.

RIGHT FROM PEREIRA.

PEREIRA.

PEREIRA HAD A BAD HABIT OF

LEANING ON THE ROPES.

THAT'S WHEN YOU JUMP ON SOMEONE.

HIS FEET ARE COMING TOGETHER.

RIGHT THERE.

THESE WHEN YOU HAVE TO ATTACK.

>> PEREIRA HAD SO MUCH SUCCESS

WITH THE KNEES IN THE FIRST

BOUGHT.

SURPRISED HE'S NOT THROWING MORE

OF THOSE.

>> YES, I AM.

HE CAME OUT EARLY WITH THEM BUT

NOW HE'S CONTENT TO USE THE

BOXING AND THE LOW KICK THERE AS

WELL.

>> SAW SAHAK PARPARYAN SHOWING

HOW TOUGH HE IS.

WENT TO DISTANCE IN THE FIRST

FIGHT.

BUT STILL, VERY STRONG IN THE

THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

>> THESE GUYS, I DON'T KNOW.

THEY HIT EACH OTHER WITH THE

KITCHEN SINK AND THEN SOME.

THAT'S WHY WE LOVE GLORY

KICKBOXING.

RANGE GOING RIGHT NOW.
