The Crutchmer-Wright bout was one of four fights which was shown on UFC Fight Pass live streaming service.
Here's how the Oklahoma State sports website PistolsFiring.com described Crutchmer's most recent win:
"The two-time All-American was a heavy favorite and never let Wright make the fight interesting. Early on in the first round, Crutchmer took a few heavy swings at Wright, Wright then countered with an attempt at a takedown. Naturally, Crutchmer had no issue defending, took Wright down, and went to work grounding and pounding."
With the win, Crutchmer sports a perfect 3-0 record in his MMA career launched in early June, with two submissions and one TKO. With the loss, Brandon Wright falls to 2-4 in his pro career.
In Crutchmer's corner were his brother Brian, and Oklahoma State NCAA champ Alex Dieringer. Among those in the audience: legendary Cowboy wrestling coach John Smith.
