Aaron Rosa vs. Matt Lucas
A few tie-ups early on with Lucas getting the better of them. He grabs Rosa's back and takes a shot but Rosa escapes and they square off in the center of the cage. Lucas backs him up against the cage and tries to grind him down. Rosa grabs him in the clinch and starts throwing knees. Lucas loses his mouthpiece and we get a break in the action. After that Lucas goes for the double leg and Rosa blocks it. He keeps pushing for the takedown but Rosa will not go down and is throwing some shots in as well. Knee from Rosa. Elbows to the head from Rosa. Lucas will not let go of the double leg and because of that he keeps eating elbows. Rogan theorizes that Lucas is tired. They break and both throw shots. The round ends, Rosa stole it near the end.
Rosa throws a few looping shots in the opening seconds. Lucas takes a shot of his own but this round is slow just as the last one was. Lucas comes in and gets a nice double leg but Rosa stands right up out of it. Lucas keeps him tied up Rosa goes back from the Thai clinch. After a quick break Lucas lowers his head and goes back in for another takedown but Rosa will not go down. Again Lucas holds on to the takedown attempt and Rosa uses the opportunity for rain elbows down on him. They break and Lucas connects nicely with a right hand. They tie up again and Rosa grabs the clinch and throws a knee. Lucas is looking pretty sluggish tonight. Another break for the Lucas losing the mouthpiece and this time referee John McCarthy takes a point away from him. Lucas comes out and gets a takedown and this one sticks for longer than a few seconds. Rosa does get back up as the round ends.
