Behind the play the two drop the gloves and square off at center ice. They tie up and Gaustad flings his right arm behind Belak, throwing a right to the back of his head. Belak then throws four punches to the head and body of Gaustad. Belak throws another right while Gaustad charges forward and throws a couple of straight body shots. Belak lands two rights and two uppercuts with Gaustad going down to a knee during the flurry. Gaustad digs his head into Belak's chest and tries to wrestle him to the ice but Belak is able to get back on his feet and land one more uppercut before letting go of Gaustad just as the linesmen come in.
Gaustad was beaten quite soundly as he hasn't a change against much better/stronger. Belak worked well on his uppercuts particularly. Gaustad goes for the takedown as they both goes down on their knees but Belak gets up more quickly and was in better position when the officials comes in for the help. W.Belak with DECISIVE win in nice fight.
