UFC 165 results: Brendan Schaub submits Matt Mitrione

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

So maybe Brendan Schaub was being sincere all along when he professed his love of jiu-jitsu.

In what figured to be a heavyweight slugfest, Schaub instead executed a perfect D'Arce choke to defeat his former Ultimate Fighter teammate, Matt Mitrione, at UFC 165 on Saturday in Toronto.

After heated words between the two in the buildup, Mitrione refused to tap gloves with Schaub in the pre-fight. The fighters tagged one another in the early going, with Schaub (10-3) getting cut on his hairline between the eyes, and Schaub returning the favor by cutting open Mitrione under his left eye.

Late in the round, Schaub turned up the intensity, rushing at Mitrione with a flurry of punches and scoring a takedown. From there, Schaub, who earned the jiu-jitsu community's wrath for his performance against Roberto Abreu at Metamoris 2 in June, maneuvered into the winning D'Arce choke, as he put Mitrione out cold. The fight was stopped at 4:06 of round one.

"I've tapped a lot of top caliber jiu-jitsu guys with that move, so, I'm very confident that, I trained so hard, I'm so happy right now," Schaub said.

Schaub (10-3) won his second straight fight; Mitrione (6-3) lost for the third time in his past four fights.
