Jon Fitch vs. Paulo Thiago
Thiago is in the Octagon. Fitch is in the Octagon.
Round 1: This fight is underway. Fitch gets the takedown but Thiago goes for a guillotine. Thiago has Fitch in that guillotine but Fitch looks relaxed. Wow. This is about the longest I've ever seen a guillotine held. Finally Fitch pulls his head free. A weird first round with very little action that I guess I'll give to Thiago, 10-9.

Round 2: Fitch goes for a high kick and then a right hand, and then he gets Thiago against the cage. Fitch throws Thiago to the ground, but Thiago looks comfortable there. Thiago wants the guillotine again. Now Fitch is trying to stand back up. Good takedown for Fitch. Fitch has Thiago's back and is landing some good punches. I'll give the second round to Fitch, 10-9.

Round 3: Fitch lands an early takedown. Fitch works his way to mount. Now Thiago gives up his back and Fitch lands some punches. Thiago falls straight back and lands on Fitch, and now he's going for a choke on the ground. Good up kick from Thiago after Fitch stands up. Fitch is on top basically controlling the fight. Fitch landing some good punches. Fitch is working his way to a rear-naked choke. Fitch has Thiago's back, he has him in a body triangle and he's pretty much dominating him. The round goes to Fitch, 10-9, and he'll win the fight.

Jon Fitch beat Paulo Thiago by unanimous decision.
