Sought to be a great matchup regardless of both having the exact opposite styles , from the beginning both were testing each other out.

Diaz was attempting to work body to his advantage considering his power versus Crawford endless jab ability.

As the rounds went by theirs was a bit of taunting on Crawford side in attempt to throw Diaz off his gameplan since he failed to capitalize.

In the later rounds Diaz seemed to give up moving forward and played more of a defensive roll to avoid Crawford ever so popular jabs.

Crawford started to pick his shots to potentially finish the fight , after the tenth round ended the ref decided to stop the fight due to Diaz eye closing shut.
