Ryan Parker takes the TKO win after one round with Roger Pratcher

Ryan Parker had a dominant performance in round one of his 195 lbs. catchweight bout with Roger Pratcher at Fight For It VIII. After walking through a head kick from Pratcher, Parker fought his way into a clinch and kept Pratcher on the ropes or on the ground for much of the remainder of the round, threatening submissions and raining blows from top half-guard.

At some point in the round, Pratcher sustained a foot injury that would prevent him from continuing into the second round, giving Parker — already off to a strong start in the bout — an early TKO victory.
