Tavares catches two hard knees to the body as he barrels forward in pursuit of the takedown. Baroni sprawls, and drives him into the fence. The pair stand up in the clinch, and trade knees. Baroni lands a knee low on Tavares, and referee Josh Rosenthal gives him a momentary respite. Tavares cracks Baroni with a hard head kick, and Baroni waves him to come on. Tavares feints, and cracks Baroni with an overhand right. Baroni is rocked badly, falling into the cage and Tavares is all over him, pushing down his head and smashing him with punches.
