"It's a relief," Andrews told J. Waugh (SR). "It's the bitter sweet end to your hard training, everything you put into it."

Justin "The Raw Deal" Baesman (now 10-3) took on Kito Andrews in defense of his welterweight title during the main event of the evening, the fight was to cap off the West Coast Fighting Championship (WFC) 'Resolution' card.
"I'm good, I'm relaxed. I trained hard and I'm ready," Baesman told Matthew (www.srmma.com). "I was here for his last fight. I know he likes to go for the take downs. I watched his stand up, he doesn't like to bang too much. But he's a good fighter. It will be a good fight."

Upon further review, it appeared that Baesman was rocked from one of the punches that Andrews (MMAGOLD sponsored) landed before the take down. While Baesman was dazed on the mat with Andrews on top, he tapped out (consciously or not) before Rosenthal called a stop to the bout. The official result was declared a submission due to strikes.
"I was trying to put him through the bottom of the floor," Andrews told J. Waugh (www.srmma.com). "When I hit him I felt him go really limp, and then I felt him tapping on my back and I'm like 'Why is he doing that?'."
