And now for the main event of the evening.
Chants of “MOU-SAS-I” ring around the arena to begin the first round. Munoz answered with a big takedown that Mousasi reversed easily. Neither man really got the best of the stand-up, though Munoz landed some heavy shots to the leg. Munoz shot again but Mousasi sprawled brilliantly and eventually got top position and into side control. Mousasi dominated on the ground landing big elbows to the head, while looking for a choke.
They got back up though and Munoz tried for another takedown. Mousasi reversed once again and landed in the full mount position. He then transitioned to the back and sank in the rear-naked choke. Munoz tapped out and referee stopped the fight in the first. Total domination by Gegard Mousasi and into the top 10 he goes.
Gegard Mousasi defeats Mark Munoz by first round submission (rear-naked choke, 3:57)
