In the first three rounds, Gill was using the jab and distance to outbox Bellotti, who was unable to get close enough to do much of anything. Bellotti switched up the tactics in the fourth, as he got a lot closer and he was able to start connecting with punches.

Gill was able to go back to boxing in the fifth to keep things close and managed to stun Bellotti during the sixth. At this point Bellotti's face was starting to mark up as the fight played out. Bellotti was having trouble cutting off the ring to catch up with Gill.

Coming in, Bennett had won two in a row since an upset decision loss to Ben Fields in October.

Bennett came out firing in the first round, forcing Smith to trade shots quicker than expected. In the closing seconds, Smith rocked Bennett with big counter and worked him over with quick combinations.
