Adam Borics took advantage of the third round in a unanimous decision win against Erick Sanchez at Bellator 250 on Thursday, Oct. 29.
After two rounds of technical striking between both parties, Borics dominated Sanchez on the feet in the third round. Borics landed the harder shots and was throwing at higher volume.
Borics even landed a number of elbows from his feet. He capped off the final round with a surprising takedown.
“I felt he was hurt, so I wanted to finish him. I was much stronger physically,” Borics said. “I was pretty fresh before the third round and at the end of the third round I was pushing hard because I wanted the finish.
Borics attempted an arm-bar late, but Sanchez was able to roll out to escape. The 27-year-old transitioned to a triangle, but Sanchez ended up on top.
Although Borics failed to finish his opponent, he did enough to persuade the judges in the end.
“I am always looking for the finish,” Borics said. “I get a little bit tired of course, but I can do five rounds I feel.”
