Winning an MMA fight on points is not how Milford fighter David 'one more' Round tends to do things.

The 33-year-old is infamous for going for knockout wins, but on Saturday he went the distance and prevailed in his long awaited rematch with Leigh 'the boom' Cohoon.

Round stopped the same fighter in Blackpool in 2013, and the pair clashed verbally out of the ring at shows in both March and June this year, prompting the World Combat Fighting Championship to set up the bout.

So in the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester on Saturday, the pair fought at middleweight as one of the listed main events on the 'Way to the Warrior' show.

"It was a fight everyone wanted to see," said Round.

"I stopped him six years ago when people wanted to see a war for three rounds. So really, on Saturday we had the fight we should have had first time around."

A war indeed did ensue, with Round winning 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 on the scorecards and managing to mix some brutal striking with some customary showmanship.

"I'm always confident going in but after the first round I knew I had him beaten," he said.

"My face was badly beaten up by the end mind and I wouldn't have complained if he'd been given the last round. But I felt I smashed him before that."

The two have always been good friends outside of MMA, and sure enough, Round said they retired back to the changing room together afterwards to share drinks.

Next up for the Milford man is a proposed World title fight in WCFC in March next year, as reward for this win.
