1stRound:

Not much action early. Hamill has yet to attempt one takedown through three minutes. The crowd starts to boo for the first time tonight. Hamill easily takes him down and is dropping bombs from behind. Hollett is doing a decent job of avoiding damage, but “The Hammer” is bringing the pain. Hollett gets to his feet just before the horn sounds.

2ndRound:

Hollett is a tad careless with a knee to the midsection and gets planted on his back for his troubles. Hamill lands minimal ground-and-pound before Hollett gets back up. The crowd rains down boos again. After eight thrilling fights, seven of which resulted in upsets, this scrap is a snoozer. Hamill slams him to the canvas just before the bell blares.

Hamill immediately secures a takedown. He’s simply smothering the Octagon rookie. Hamill is active with his ground assault. Hollett gets to his feet, but is easily led back down within seconds after missing on a spinning elbow. The crowd voicing their displeasure once again. They get stood up due to inactivity. No matter, as Hollett is staring up at the ceiling once again.
