Round 1: Referee Leon Roberts is our third man in the cage. Lyoto Machida's first fight at middleweight. And we're off. Munoz whiffs on a lunging right. Machida hanging back, staying patient. Munoz changes levels but Machida sidesteps the shot and lands a kick to the midsection. Munoz eats another kick and circles left. Whoa! Huge head kick floors Munoz! He's out completely. Machida thought about following up, but Munoz was already out. Great sportsmanship there. Super impressive 185 debut.
