Falcao came out pressing in the first round, looking to push Morrell back. It didn’t take long before Morrell began to unload with accurate punches to the head and body of Falcao. A big uppercut rocked Falcao, with a follow-up combination dropping him.
Falcao beat the count, but he was being pounded by heavy punches. A huge hook sent Falcao down and out face-first on the mat. The fight was quickly waved off, with Falcao receiving medical attention.
