Round 1: Main Event time kids...Joe Joe Giannetti vs. Darius Estell go five rounds for the Cage Titans Lightweight belt. Estell comes across the cage swinging and Joe clinches him and puts him on the ground early. Joe backs off and Darius starts to stand and Joe launches a glancing flying knee that nearly hits its target. Giannetti puts Estell on the fence and eventually back to the mat where Joe is very dangerous and has time to work. Darius escapes however and is greeted with another flying knee followed by the clinch from Joe. Estell circles out and comes forward with a combination that Joe shakes and Giannetti clinches Darius against the cage again. Giannetti is employing heavy pressure and knees on the cage as
