Haley -vs- Griffin

-Heavyweight Pro

Team Anabis Kevin Haley -vs Team Bishops Mark Griffin

Heavyweight Title: Mark Griffin def. Kevin Haley by TKO (punches). Round 2, 3:31

In the main event of the evening, it was the promotions light heavyweight champion stepping up a weight class to take on Kevin Haley for the CFX heavyweight title.  Griffin had last been seen in the cage back in October 2011, and there was talk as to whether or not there would be ring rust.  The first round was mostly contested with Haley controlling Kevin against the fence, with Griffin trying to fight off of the cage with elbows to the head, similar to the way that Travis Browne put away Gabriel Gonzaga.  As they head into the second, the position returned to how it was in the first, but this time Haley got the fight to the ground where he wanted, only not to the position that he would have preferred.  The light heavyweight champion was able to advance his position and get into a postured mount position, where the ground and pound was too much for the Team Anubis fighter.  Griffin exited the cage off with the heavyweight title around his waist, his second CFX championship.
