Mucitelli sees another desperate takedown stuffed to begin round two, and McCurdy is now stalking the New Yorker with his jab. McCurdy catches two consecutive kicks and throws Mucitelli to the mat both times, electing not to follow his foe down. Mucitelli eats another jab but answers with a one-two of his own. McCurdy blocks a head kick but eats one to the body shortly thereafter. McCurdly looks fatigued now, and Mucitelli appears to have found a second wind, winging a left hook upstairs and then firing a hard round kick to the ribs as the round expires.
