Round 1: Mario Yamasaki back on duty as the third man. They touch them up. Boetsch changes levels and immediately lands low kick. He shoots in on Rockhold, and for a moment had something baking, but Rockhold thwarts. Boetsch still persisting with the double leg, and Rockhold elbowing his ribs sitting on his head. Rockhold punishing Boetsch's aggression, and now flirting with reverse triangle, now peeling Boetsch's arm off his side for a Kimura. He repositions and now he's got the arm torqued. Boetsch can't hang with it and taps! Beautiful execution from Rockhold. He turned the initial double-leg into a scramble, then into a course of ribs and finally a Kimura.
