Round 1: Third man in the cage is Yves Lavigne. Browne out with long strafing jabs. Barnett wrangles his neck and pushes him on fence, but they separate. Again the clinch, this time in the middle of the cage. Barnett covers up like a man in a storm and moves in cautiously for a take down and Browne lands a sharp, hard elbow to his temple. And another and another! Barnett is out, but Lavigne doesn't see it right off. He finally does and waves Browne off! Four hard shots to the temple as Barnett clung to the double-leg, and down dropped Barnett! Wow!
