It wasn't quite as easy for Krzysztof Soszynski who had to go to the second round to score his submission win via kimura at 3:27. It was definitely nastier as Soszynski really yanked the hold and shredded Primm's shoulder.
"Kimura is one of my favorite submissions. He wasn't as strong as I thought he'd be so I thought I'd crack it really hard. I let go of it in the first but I finished it in the second."
Marshall was a huge favorite at the Palms at -550. Technically, he was the first favorite of the young night to notch a victory. Soszynski was a -325 favorite. Tom Lawlor (-105), Shane Nelson (EVEN) and Roli Delgado (-110), all slight dogs, won their fights. The Yahoo MMA Experts Blog is a perfect 5-0 on the evening.
