Round 1:
Both fighters open orthodox. Both fighters pawing with small shots to gauge reactions and timing, but not landing anything of substance. Jabouin times a hard double and it works. Almeida works his way back to the cage and stands, then lands a right hand. Almeida might be opening up, scoring with a right hand and left inside low kick. Body shot and a jab for the Brazilian now. Decent body kick, however, from Jabouin. The action heats up a bit and Almeida wings several hard right hands, virtually all of them landing. A left hook lands for Almeida and Jabouin is stunned. He leans on the fence and Almeida is all over him with a barrage of punches to the body and head in rapid succession. Referee Yves Lavigne has no choice but to stop it.

Thomas Almeida def. Yves Jabouin via TKO (strikes) at 4:18 of round 1
