The Fight:

 

Round 1: The fight starts with a whiffed head kick followed by a hard leg kick for Alhassan. Some good body work from Homasi, a kick and a hard punch.  They clinch, a WILD exchange follows with both men landing shots. Alhassan explodes forward with a combination but comes up just short. A solid right from Homasi appears to stun Alhassan. Homasi gets a takedown and is in an interesting position similar to side control. A premature stand up by the ref is followed by a solid right hand from Alhassan. BANG!!! Huge uppercut for Alhassan absolutely melts Homasi, he’s out before he hits the ground.

RESULT: Abdul Razak Alhassan def. Sabah Homasi via knockout at 3:47 in round 1
