It’s almost ridiculous that Thatcher has had the number of title defenses and beaten the quality of opponents. Yehi has some unique offense but is obviously more of a mat wrestler. We’ll see if that leads to a higher quality match. Yehi stomps his way to the advantage. There’s some nice moments, but man, this just felt like a match with no juice behind it. I don’t even think the crowd hates Thatcher. They’re indifferent and apathetic. Unlike the Brooklyn crowd, they’re not as rude.

Yehi hits a heck of a lot of forearms on Thatcher, but Thatcher is able to get to the ropes. Yehi has some nice flourishes and came across like a much more credible contender than Jeff Cobb. Koji Clutch but Thatcher gets to the ropes. Thatcher wins with the Sakatoshi and gets…mild boos.

Winner (s)/Rating: STILL Evolve Champion-Timothy Thatcher/**1/2
