Here we go with a lightweight fight between American Top Team product Cole Miller and Dan Lauzon, who rejoins his brother Joe on the UFC roster tonight.
Round 1: Lauzon throws but can't connect. Miller connects with a left hook in the midst of a boxing combo and then throws a Muay Thai knee. Lauzon drops Miller with a left hook of his own and Miller scrambles to his feet. Knee by Lauzon. Muay Thai knees by Miller in response. Miller holds onto the plomb and tries to jump into a knee while Lauzon throws body punches. Miller with a leg kick, Lauzon catches the foot and throws punches. Miller lunges forward and Lauzon ducks behind him and tries for back control on the ground. Miller locks on an inverted triangle from the ground, and Lauzon can't escape. He taps out, giving Miller a very nice win.
Winner: Cole Miller defeats Dan Lauzon via submission to a kimura from an inverted triangle at 3:05 of Round 1.
On the replay, you can see that not only did Miller have Lauzon trapped in an inverted triangle, but he was also cranking on a kimura from the other side. The submission was attributed to the kimura. Either way you slice it, a nice display of jiu-jitsu right there.
