The round started very slow and it looked like Fletcher was picking up the pace, however midway through, Ricci nabbed a nice takedown. He landed some ground and pound, which eventually led to him taking his back. He couldn’t secure any submissions, but the takedown should secure the round and ultimately the fight.
