    Anshul vs Breeden - Lightweight bout

    Round 1: Anshul starts off positively with a leg kick and couples it up with a right arm jab. The fighters exchange body shots. Breeden gets the combo right as he finds Anshul’s head with a left hook. Anshul almost connected a knee kick but Breeden was braced for it and pulls himself out. Breeden lets his guard down for a leg kick and Anshul capitalises as he throws a couple of punches to the American’s face. Anshul currently has the advantage with 29 significant strikes compared to Breeden’s 18. Round one comes to an end

    Round 2: Anshul goes for the takedown straighaway as he attempts to grab Breeden’s leg but the American gets out of the stanglehold quickly. Breeden’s left eyebrow is split open as Anshul lands a powerful jab. Both the fighters are still a bit defensive. The reason? this is Anshul’s debut and Breeden on the other hand is on a 4-fight losing streak so they are looking to get everything right. Breeden ends round two on a high as he gets a couple of jabs to Anshul’s face. However, anshul is still leading on points

    Round 3: Third and final round is underway. Anshul gets a grapple on and dishes out a knee kick. Breeden responds with a couple of jabs. He follows it up with multiple punches as Anshul lets his guard down. Things not looking good for the Indian. Anshul, for some reason, is finding it difficult to dodge whatever Breeden is throwing at him. AND BREEDEN DOES IT! KNOCKS ANSHUL OUT TO END HIS DROUGHT. WHAT A COMEBACK FROM THE AMERICAN!

    Result: Mike Breeden def. Anshul Jubli via third-round KO (3:00)

    The moment is here!

    Anshul makes his away into the octagon. Doesn’t look like he is making his debut as the Indian looks as calm as possible. The battle-hardened Breeden takes the octagon shortly after. FYI, Breeden will be fined 30 per cent of his purse for missing weight by 3.5lbs

    Jubli will take on Mike Breeden of the United States in a lightweight fight that is scheduled under early preliminaries.
