These two have a bit of a history as they "fought" in the playoffs, although it was mostly Clowe beating on Abdelkader. Fight started behind the play and looked like it was a mutual agreement. This was all Clowe. Clowe nearly dropped Abdelkader right away, landing a couple shots which put him to his knees. Abdelkader gets up and Clowe throws a bomb of an uppercut which nearly took Abdelkader's head off, than gets the helmet and visor off Abdelkader's head and just misses with another uppercut. Abdelkader tries to tie up and they grapple for a bit. Clowe misses with a right and Abdelkader lands a short left, Clowe tries two more rights that Abdelkader slips or locks out, than Abdelkader throws a right off balance and Clowe throws a looping right which misses and Abdelkader goes down from momentum. Abdelkader does a good job not getting killed but this was all Clowe.
