Round 1: Jay Stafin is the third man in the cage. Gonzaga errant on a leg kick, as Jordan takes the center of the cage. Jordan smiling. Both trade jabs, but can't follow up. Each leery of the other's power to end the fight early, it seems. Bam! Jordan swooped in with an uppercut and then came over the top with a left, and got caught with a short counter right hook. That punch dropped Jordan, and Gonzaga pounced on him and delivered the finishers. Crazy coordination and wherewithal by Gonzaga to land that punch amidst a Jordan combination.
