Crutchmer took on Kemran Lachinov, a 9-2 welterweight fighter out of Springfield, Massachusetts.

The fight as a whole was pretty even. The first round I had for Crutchmer. There were some good exchanges from both fighters, but Crutchmer had a lot of energy early. He landed a big head kick to start the fight and finished off the round with this takedown.

The second and third rounds were close. A number of good exchanges between both fighters and even this strange moment where Lachinov walked into Crutchmer with his hands down and took a few straight shots to his face.
