Cappelozza defeated Ante Delija
via unanimous decision (49-45, 49-45, 48-46) at the PFL Championships on Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale.
Cappelozza came out and recorded a dominant first round that could have easily been called off, as he won the striking battle by a count of 88-5 in that frame. Delija caught a second wind in the next period and likely got the nod, but Cappelozza was able to outlast him as the fight wore on, throwing over 200 strikes in the battle. It took much longer than the 46-second finish he recorded against Delija at PFL 3 back on May 6, but Cappelozza will still cash the ticket as the betting favorite and take home a $1 million prize. He also recorded wins against Mo DeReese and Jamelle Jones
en route to the championship victory.
