An entertaining scrap between Michael Chiesa and Mitch Clarke took place on the main card of the UFC Fight Night 63 event that ended in a clear unanimous decision victory for the Washington native.
Check out Dallas Winston’s play-by-play for the third round:
Clarke closes distance with a front kick, then lands two light low kicks and a glancing Superman punch. Chiesa answers with a left. Clarke throws a one-two and closes with a grazing body shot. Hook/cross combo bounces off the guard of Chiesa. Now it’s a left hook and an uppercut from the rejuvenated Clarke. Chiesa fires back with a combo after almost catching Clarke’s kick.
Clarke keeps the pressure on with punches and half-lands a right high kick. Jump knee from Chiesa glances off Clarke’s chin. Hard counter left hook from Clarke, then a snapping jab. Right body kick from Clarke, who’s stolen the momentum but needs a finish. Chiesa keeps him honest with a stiff counter. Left cross lands for Chiesa. Lead uppercut glances for Clarke. Double left body kicks score for Chiesa but he’s just short on his spinning kick. 10-9 Clarke. I have it 29-27 Chiesa.
