Round 1: Referee in charge of the action is Mario Yamasaki. Maia is southpaw, Brown is hands down and orthodox. And just like that, Maia shoots on a single, pushes Brown back to the cage and is trying to take the back. Eventually he does and now Brown is backpacking him. Maia drags him to the canvas and now has the body triangle. The body triangle is off and then back on. Brown tries to stand and is nearly choked, so he sits and tries to hand fight. Maia attempts an armbar, but Brown uses wrist control to force him to guard.
