Paul vs. Askren results: Regis Prograis wins technical decision over Ivan Redkach following phantom low blow – MMA Root



Regis Prograis went to victory in the Triller Fight Club main event, but not without the strange circumstances surrounding the end of his fight against Ivan Redkach.

After mastering the majority of the fight, Prograis was in complete control, and when he saw Redkach doubles to the ground in pain, it turned out he was probably just a few hard shots away from winning a knockout. Redkach immediately grabbed his groin as if he had taken a low blow and continued to writh in pain on the ground, which eventually led to a stretcher being brought to help him leave the ring.

The only problem was that repetitions showed that Prograis never approached the groin area with his fist, and his right forearm barely glanced at Redkach’s own arm and hip before falling to the ground. Still, Redkach was unable to continue and the fight was halted, with scorecards counting according to the fight up to that point.

In the end, Prograis won an unstable decision with the judges scoring 60-54, 60-54 and 59-54 in favor of the judges.

Before the strange ended, Prograis had done a lot more work throughout the fight, even though he was a slightly slow star on the opening round. As the second begins, Prograis looked to form a slippery fist with his right hand as he loaded the power from his left. With Redkach on his hind leg, Prograis began to chase after him with more aggression as he threw a few tough left hooks, both of which had a serious zipper on the back.

Prograis was much more active following Redkach around the ring, shooting the body, and then moving up again and again with the same left hand.

At the end of the third round, Prograis was still in the lead, while he caught Redkach with a counter-punch that threw his head back just before the bell rang.

After stuning Redkach, Prograis was just looking for a kill while continuing to feed his opponent with his left hands. Prograis was unloading enormous shots and was not afraid of retaliation from Redkach, who, despite his best efforts to remain firm in the exchanges, was certainly superior.

In the middle of the sixth round, Prograis was descending as he wanted and he was emptied by the shot that saw Redkach fall to the ground at that time. The referee called the shot a low blow, stopping the action, but one repeat clearly showed that Prograis landed cleanly without any contact with the groin.

Either way, the fight was stopped and Prograis triumphed throughout his career as he rose to 26-1 overall.
