Rd.2 – Apple with a head kick but receives a right hand from Makowski.  Apple shoots in and Makowski gets a guillotine.  Apple escapes and Makowski is now back on the bottom where he spent all of round one.  Apple secures full mount.  Landing elbows from the top.  Makowski gives up his back and Apple sinks in the rear naked choke for the tapout.  Erik Apple defeats Matt Makowski by rear naked choke submission in round 2. Notes:  Mike “The Joker” Guymon was in Apple’s corner.  Apple is the guy who defeated Nick Serra last time by taking his legs out from under him with numerous leg kicks making it so Serra could not continue.
