The match will feature tournament finalist Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali as they look to become the new face of 205 Live.

We will provide live coverage on this match and every other match that takes place today inside of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as it occurs.

Mustafa Ali is channeling his inner DJZ. Or is he a modern day Glacier?

The 205 Live crew are on the call for this match. Cedric has some high-octane offense to kick off the first part of the match. Nigel McGuinness does a great job at telling the backstory as Alexander continues to pour it on Ali. Ali gets a ton of height on a massive backdrop from Alexander.

Ali starts his comeback to begin the second part of the match. Mustafa hits a beautiful Spanish Fly and both men are down. Ali hits yet another Spanish Fly on Alexander but this one comes off the top rope. Dear God.

Ali slows himself down after missing a spot so we can get a in-screen Ronda Rousey commercial. Alexander begins to pour it on again. Ali reverses a Lumbar Check and hits a reverse Rana on Alexander. Tornado DDT from Ali. He hits the 054 on Alexander but Ced is able to get a foot on the bottom rope to break the count. Another 054 attempt from Alexander but he lands face first, Alexander escapes. Spinning back elbow from Alexander. Another back elbow from Alexander flips Ali. Lumbar Check from Alexander. 1, 2, 3. Cedric Alexander is your new Cruiserweight Champion.

Lots of screaming about Heart and Soul during the finishing sequence. They pan over to John Cena, not Huey Lewis, in the front row who gives his approval. Drake Maverick hands over the title to Alexander to close out what was a very solid match for the 205 Live product.
