Grigorian starts opening up with his hands and is finding some success beginning to bully Ngimbi into the corners.
Grigorian opens up aggressive in the second round, actually going for a flying knee of his own. Grigorian once again bullying Ngimbi into the corners and opening up with his hands while Ngimbi looking to clinch to get separated. A big cut gets opened up on Ngimbi’s eye from keeping his head down and taking a knee to the face and the fight is called off.
Harut Grigorian wins via stoppage.
