During the fight, Matos dominated the opening round, positioning himself to a full mount and pummeling Geisler for majority of the canto.

But in 2nd and final round, Baron stormed back as he pounded his rival. Both men looked gassed by the final bell.

As the decision was announced, the viewers demanded for an additional round to settle the score. But an obviously gassed out Geisler appeared to decline, and the draw decision stuck.

It was previously reported that the Baron and Kiko Matos fight was promoted to settle the differences between the two actors figuring out an altercation at a bar in Quezon City last month. Thus, URCC Alvin Aguilar invited the two to settle their differences inside the ring.

“We are offering you both a chance to finally settle your score inside the URCC cage and not in the streets,” Aguilar said during a presser in May.

Matos and Geisler immediately accepted the offer from URCC. ( Read: Baron and Kiko Matos MMA fight confirmed by URCC )

On the other hand, the Matos-Geisler card is one of the many fights featured in the Fight Night that spotlights Chris Hofmann versus Arvin Chan in the top billing. Other cards feature John Adajar against Jericho Tomagan, and Eddie Estrada opposite MJ Abrillo.

Having an edge of the fight, Geisler leans on a bit of tae kwon do experience while Matos said he is familiar with jiu-jitsu.
