Round 1: Dan Miragliotta is the third man in the cage. Here we go...UFC 171 PPV underway. They touch them up. St. Preux circling early, and then takes Krylov down after a kick. He's immediately into side control. St. Preux has a headlock, and is scooting to the fence. That's where they end up. And as Krylov tries to squirm free, the referee realizes that he's out! Wow. He was choked unconscious from the old Von Flue choke as Krylov was fishing for the guillotine. St. Preux pinned Krylov's hand with his knee, and he squeezed the neck from shoulder until Krylov went to sleep. Referee came in and peeled St. Preux off.
