On the horn:
"It could of went either way," Martin told Matthew (SR) post-fight. "[The referee] didn't stop it, so that just gave me one more round to see what I could work with, so I'm not complaining."

On September 7, Zeth Martin (now 1-1) faced off against David Bollea (now 3-2) at the Tachi Palace Fights 14: Validation. It was clear in the first round that Bollea wanted to see this fight go to the ground, as he attempted many single leg take downs. However, Bollea was never able to get a firm hold of a leg, and Martin repeatedly stuffed the take downs while landing on the mat in top position. Martin backed out of Bollea's guard to keep the fight standing.

Martin kept his punches straight and clean, dropping Bollea near the end of the first round with a one-two combination. Martin pursued Bollea to the ground, maintaining top position as Bollea scrambled to escape, while landing vicious ground and pound. It was a close call for Bollea, as he was on the wrong side of a back mount when the horn sounded.
"It could've went either way," Martin told Matthew (www.srmma.com) post-fight. "[The referee] didn't stop it, so that just gave me one more round to see what I could work with, so I'm not complaining."

"I got a baby due in two days, so I might be taking like a month off," Zeth Martin told Matthew (www.srmma.com) post-fight.
