Pete Peterson
, Carroll, IA, USA (6-2, 155, 5'9", 38, 05-05-67, 712-792-8178) defeated Chris Mickle, Des Moines, IA, USA (MMA: 12-4-2, KB: 0-1, 158, 5'9", 22, 10-07-83, DMEF, 515-313-8313) by unanimous decision 48-47, 50-45, 49-46
Pete Peterson's return from retirement started out tentatively as Mickle began the fight by trying to end it early with a vicious attack to the head and body that appeared to concern Peterson although he weathered the round. Between the rounds Peterson was able to settle down and figure out how to avoid Mickle's onslaught. As the fight progressed during the next four rounds, Peterson got stronger using superior footwork, leg kicks and strong jabs and punches to Mickle's head to keep Mickle off and gradually wear Mickle down. Peterson won the last 4 rounds on 2 judge's cards and 3 of the last four rounds from the third judge. The judges scored the 5 round professional fight 48-47, 50-45 and 49-46.
