Round 1: Mario Yamasaki is the third man n the cage. Jim Miller trying to get back into swing of things, the Hawaiian Medeiros looking for his first win since 2010. Miller to center. A little recon from both, as each throws out jabs. Miller fans on overhand right. Now he fakes with one, but doesn't follow-up. That time he unleashes a quick hands combo, and connects to both sides of Medeiros' jaw. Miller now lands a body kick. Medeiros trying to work some high kicks, but Miller elusive. As Medeiros comes in for one that time, Miller kicks his leg out and drops him. Right back up, but as he stands Miller's on him with a couple of good strikes. They go to fence, where Miller lands a left to the body that hurts him, and he dumps Medeiros -- and now he snatches Medeiros neck for a guillotine! It appears really tight, and Medeiros can't fight it off. He goes to sleep. It's over. Yamasaki moves in and calls Miller off. Great looking performance by Miller.
