Round 1: Osiris Maia is the referee. Lopes is southpaw, Vieira is orthodox. They're banging away and Lopes fires a dozen body shots from the clinch before they break. Vieira scores with a right and jumps guillotine, but Lopes passes to the opposite side to escape. Vieira lets go and Lopes jumps guillotine and he escapes. They're trading bombs and Vieira drops, so he shoots and Lopes jumps guillotine again. Vieira escapes again. Both fighters are just trading wild punches. It's hard to tell who is getting the worst of it all.
