Kimbo Slice won the fight in the first round with a guillotine choke submission.
Mercer had missed a guillotine choke opportunity and paid the price. Kimbo added insult to injury, as he refused to let go, further aggravating the pain for mercer. When he finally let go, Mercer very irrate punched Slice's chest in anger and later was restrained by the referee and officials.
Mercer later stated in the press conference at Adrenaline III: Bragging Rights, when he was scheduled to fight Tim Sylvia under MMA rules instead of boxing rules, that he had expected Kimbo Slice to box with him and said that he did not really train in any other aspect of MMA and was unprepared for the guillotine choke.
