Herring scored a flash knockdown over Dos Santos in round one and nearly dropped him again with a good shot during the first three minutes. In the second round, Herring scored a second knockdown with a straight shot down the pipe.
Herring seemed to roll his ankle around the eight round, which slowed him down a little in terms of movement and aggression. Dos Santos was really letting his hands go in the eight and final round, but it was too late to change the tide.
