Decent back and forth match.  Adonis plays a really good cocky heel.

Kevin Kross vs. Little Guido: Submission Match

They exchanged strikes.  Guido took him down and went for an armbar but Kross made it to the ropes.   Guido used his UWFi training to work over Kross’ leg.  There was a lot of back and forth grappling and submission attempts until Kross muscled up Guido and slammed him down.

Kross followed up with kicks and strikes to the small of Guido’s back.   Kross speared Guido down.  The crowd chanted for Guido to make a comeback, but he was kicked down.  Guido finally snatched Kross’ arm and worked over an armbar, but Kross made it to the ropes.

Kross finally grabbed a kneebar and forced Guido to tap.

You winner, Killer Kross!

Kross held it on Guido for a long time after.
