Again to start a round the fighters come out swinging for the fences. The pace slows quickly and Miller goes back to the body with a kick.

Razak Al-Hassan vs. Steve Cantwell
Round 1
Al-Hassan stalks Cantwell around the Octagon with punches and kicks. Al-Hassan stands very tall in the pocket and shows little defense. Despite this, Al-Hassan sneaks in a left hand and a low kick. Cantwell, the more refined striker, counter punches and lands two clean left hands before scoring a takedown. Cantwell quickly passes to side-control. Cantwell takes the mount and elbows the face. Cantwell takes the right arm and secures it within the tight confines of an armbar. Al-Hassan refuses to tap and the scene is ugly as referee Mario Yamasaki steps in to save the Iowan. Al-Hassan’s arm was bent horribly, but thanks to the intervention, he may have escaped serious injury. Or not. Replays shows the elbow pop as the arm was bent nearly 45 degrees in the wrong direction. The official time is 4:04 of the first.

Jonathan Goulet vs. Mike Swick

Yoshida’s back makes contact with the fence, which holds him up in perfect range for another right that that puts the Japanese fighter away cold. The result is a contender for knockout of the year. The official time is 2:15 of round one.
