Jason MacDonald vs. Tom Lawlor
Lawlor is 29 years old today. It'll be interesting to see if he can pick up a birthday win. High kick from MacDonald is blocked. He'll have a nice height and reach advantage. MacDonald shoots, but it's stuffed and Lawlor takes the neck for a moment. Good left from Lawlor right on the chin, and MacDonald is stunned. Then a right from Lawlor behind the ear, and MacDonald is flat on his face and out. Quick finish for "Filthy," and a birthday present indeed. And he very well may get another one at the end of the night with a knockout bonus.
Result: Tom Lawlor def. Jason MacDonald, knockout, Round 1
