He showed a decent defensive guard but his tendency to hang in the pocket after striking and overcommitting with his strikes, saw him slammed throughout the fight. In the second round, Veach came closest to victory, passing Rosfort’s guard and attempting a kimura, though Rosfort escaped before Veach had it really synched.
