Who knew a right hand by Phillip Rowe would not only send Shahbazyan home in the third round of their fight on DANA WHITES CONTENDER SERIES, but also the the ticket to gaining himself a UFC Contract. Phillip Rowe is know as “Fresh” in and out of the ring and he showed the world why that is. After some adversity in the first round and getting a slight “clip” to the chin, Fresh stood back up and implemented his game plan. After perfecting his range in the 2nd and working his boxing to the body Fresh earned himself a 3rd round TKO in 16 seconds with a right to the body, left to the body and Boom right hand to the dome! This TKO victory would earn Fresh the only awarded Contract on the show this night and the after celebration with his team seemed priceless! Congratulations to the newest member of the UFC fighting from Orlando Florida – Phillip “Fresh” Rowe.
