Featherweight Main Event: Andre Harrison def. Steven Rodriguez via UD (49-46, 49-46, 49-46)
Steven Rodriguez came into the #PFLEverett main event with a smile on his face. The Costa Rican prospect knew everyone was discounting his chances against Andre Harrison and faced a no-lose situation. Rodriguez proved to be a durable opponent and may have even surprised Harrison with his speed in the opening minutes. The WSOF champion would gather his bearings and would eventually find his groove.
It would be Harrison’s wrestling game which would prove to be the difference as the fight wore on. Each time Rodriguez managed to land a solid strike or two, Harrison sent the Costa Rican to the mat with a takedown. Although Harrison didn’t get the second-round TKO like he wanted, he still took home a W in dominant fashion.
