Young tries to elbow off a couple of times but Ward is just so strong his arm doesn't go anywhere. Young in on a shot and comes up around the body. Ward clamps down on the arm and they go out. Little flurry on the edge ends with Young tumbling off the mat and all the way under the rope surrounding the mat. He got pushing in hard and Ward just kind of redirected him on the edge and he just went for a ride. No real major attempts at offense from either guy. Young has taken a few shots that haven't gotten him anything. Ward has been content to just handfight it out. 1:03 left as they fix Young's headgear.
