Round 1:
Herb Dean is the third man in the cage for the kickoff for UFC 180 PPV. Leg kick from Urbina, and Garcia swings high on him. Another leg kick, and Garcia this time pushes him back. This time Garcia catches the leg, and spins Urbina to the ground, and now he's scrambling to side control. Now he gets the hooks and has Urbina's back. Got a body lock, and he flatters him out, trying to sink a rear naked choke. They roll, with Urbina now turning and taking the position away from Garcia, now on top! Nice reversal. Urbina Now Urbina is fishing out Garcia's neck, and right now that's being defensed. Urbina trying to sink in an anaconda choke, but can't get it and in the process gives up the position, and now Garcia momentarily gets to the top. The bounce back to their feet, and Garcia pushes Urbina t othe fence, where Urbina grabs Garcia's neck and cranks. Looks deep! And there's the tap! Wow. Sudden stuff there from Urbina, who got a standing guillotine on fence and just torqued the hell out of it as Garcia dropped to his knees.
