Ruhlin grabbed Fitz and slammed him down to the mat taking his breath away and gaining the first fall .
After the rest, Ruhlin moved in to use his superior weight on Fitz but Fitz slugged him in the solar plexus.
Ruhlin grabbed Fitz by the throat and tried to strangle him, Fitz got home with another body shot and Ruhlin let go of his grip but Fitz had no breathe left in him .
Ruhlin leapt forward, grabbed Fitz picked him up and threw him down then dropped on top to gain the second fall, and the match.
