Noke hurt Camozzi with a couple of strikes in the first minute of the fight, then got double underhooks in the clinch, threw Camozzi down and got on top of him in mount. From there Noke spun around, took Camozzi's back, sunk in a rear-naked choke and forced Camozzi to tap.

The win improves Noke's professional MMA record to 19-4-1. Afterward he thanked his coach.

"I was expecting a stand-up war from Chris, but we went to the ground and I was able to get the submission," Noke said afterward. "Thanks to Greg Jackson. At Jackson's we work hard every day. Mr. Jackson, thank you, sir."

The Australian Noke was the crowd favorite in Sydney, and he gave the fans a performance to cheer about.
