Round 1 – Diakiese misses a big shin kick as the first kick of the match. After a moment, he shot in order to remove. Borshchev defends well along the fence, but Diakiese does not give up trying. They reverse the situation several times and Borschoff ends up taking Diakize’s back in a stampede. Leaves and then unloads a series of punches. Diakiese is waiting for the conquest and shoots in order to remove it again. Borschoff briefly descends, but sticks to it and puts it on the canvas again. Borshchev strengthens to his feet, but Diakiese lifts him and strikes him. The same sequence occurs a moment later, this time with Diakiese close to grabbing the back, but he snaps into side control before Borshchev takes the guard, where the round ends. MMA Junkie scored Round 10-9 for Diakiese.
Round 2 – Low kick started by Borschoff. He continues to release another pair while Diakiese searches for the range. A moment later, Diakis shoots and gets another takedown easily done. Working through lateral control, Diakiese threatens the arm triangle, but Borshchev defends and returns to guard. Eventually, Borschoff gets on his hips, pushes, and explodes up to one knee, but Diakis stays heavy and sticks to it. Borschoff is back on his feet in the stampede, however, Diakis drags him down onto the carpet. Once again, Borschoff gets to his feet, but Diakis remains attacking and pulls him down again, this time looking for another arm-triangle choke. Borschoff shook her and Diakis ran to his back. Diakis lands with punches from above before the round ends. MMA Junkie scored Round 10-9 for Diakiese.
Round 3 – Borschoff presses forward early and takes a shin kick as Diakis spins out. Borschoff does not let go of his hands in anticipation of removal, and Diakize gives him what he was waiting for, bringing the fight back to Earth again. Diakiese runs off guard and looks to roll an arm behind Borshchev’s back, but it doesn’t work. The crowd grows anxious as he puts Diakis on guard. Borschoff got back to his feet for a moment, but Diakis grabbed him, lifted him, and threw him onto the carpet again. It’s all about control for Diakis here, edging out Borschoff at every turn. There was an attempt to present the arm triangle for a moment, but Diakis settled for control until the end of the round. The audience didn’t like her, but the dominant wrestling show ends with the sound of the last century. MMA Junkie scored the final round 10-9 Diakiese, giving him a 30-27 fight.
