Chandler managed to score a takedown on Ferguson, but Ferguson continued to fire from the bottom, landing elbows, including one that busted Chandler open. Chandler, however, managed to land some ground-and-pound within Ferguson’s guard, which made Ferguson sport some blood afterward.

Despite the rough first round, Chandler got things done in the second, landing a front kick to the face that dropped Ferguson out cold.
