The fight started with Nathaniel Wood taking up most of the offense whereas John used his swift pace for counters. While he was able to avoid the majority of low kicks thrown by Wood, he took the damage of a straight right and a hook, along with a few other jabs.

The second round saw John Dodson take over a little bit of control. He connected various jabs and punch combos and meanwhile, Wood also caused his share of damage. Wood also accidentally placed a kick at John’s meant-to-be-treated-nicely s. A brief halt was observed and as the kick didn’t fully connect, Dodson was back within seconds. The round continued and saw John do his classic thing.
