The jab was landing, but Guignet proved he was able to take a punch and continued to kick the leg of the taller Williams. Williams was forced to start checking the kicks with his shin and started pressuring Guignet more with his jab and cross. Guignet finally tried to get the match to the ground but the shot was stuffed and Williams was able to scramble out and land his own series devastating knees from the muay thai clinch. The round ended with Guignet landing a takedown.

Second round started with Guignet going back to his leg kick, as he reasonable success with them in the first round. Williams continued to pump the jab then Guignet landed a big left hook that woke up Williams.
