The fight between Lance Palmer and Steven Siler was vintage Palmer. The Team Alpha Male fighter controlled much of the action by keeping Siler on the mat. Siler would threaten with rubber guard and submission attempts, but Palmer was relentless with his top control. A former Division-I All-American wrestler at Ohio State, Palmer’s wrestling proved to be the difference in this fight. Siler had a few moments of success but could not sustain anything for extended periods of time.
Siler was able to cause a cut in the final frame but it was too little, too late. Palmer’s dominant wrestling was too much for the seasoned veteran as Palmer even took home a 10-8 round during their contest.
