Round 1: Keith Peterson on hand to officiate this one. Jedrzejczyk throwing the jab early and often. Torres not throwing much to start, she tries for a takedown and she’s wrestling Jedrzejczyk against the fence. They exchange knees in the clinch. Jedrzejczyk gets an underhook and lands a solid knee to the midsection. She reverses the position, but Torres grapevines Jedrzejczyk’s leg and gets her back off the fence. Jedrzejczyk still landing the occasional knee as they jockey for position. These two have been locked together the entire round and Jedrzejczyk has been having more success coring in the clinch. Glancing knee to the head by Jedrzejczyk as Torres tries to reset and shoot in for a single leg. Not a lot to score so far.
MMA Fighting scores the round 10-9, Jedrzejczyk.
