R3.Kick by Pytlik but Tevely lands two lefts.  They both throw bunches and now Pytlik pushes Tevely to the cage.  Not wise as Tevely is the stronger fighter and quickly reverses the position. Tevely throws a knee right on the cup.  Time out and a point is taken away.  That will cost big time.

Restart and the two trade big time.  Pytlik hurts Tevely with two punches.  Hard knees by Pytlik who had Tevely in the plum.  More knees.  Tevely slumps to the cage and Pytlik drops and throws some hard lefts. Tevely turtles up and the ref stops the bout.
