Beebe allegedly sustained a knee injury that hampered his training and ability to reduce his weight to the contractually-set limit of pounds. The bout took place on October 3, in Fairfax, Virginia. The fight was a grueling 5 rounder where Chase spent most of the fight on Easton's back trying to sink in a rear naked choke.
Most people, including the commentators, scored the fight in favor of Beebe but two of the judges didn't see it that way and handed Mike Easton a controversial split decision victory.
