Round 1: Lewis headhunting early as he closes the distance. Spivac works his jab, and Lewis tries to sneak in an uppercut. They end up in the clinch, and Spivac hip tosses Lewis to the mat. There are those odds right there...Spivac is in side control and looks in no danger of losing position. Lewis rolls to his knees and takes a few punches before deciding to be on his back. Spivac is all over him, taking mount and wailing away as he tries to get up. Spivac grabs ahold of his neck and drags him back down, but Lewis powers back up. Lewis misses on a roll and Spivac stays around his waist before throwing Lewis back to the canvas. Lewis is back up, then back down. Back up, back down, punches...that’s Spivac’s playbook. But as it turns out, Spivac is ready to capitalize when Lewis rolls to his back and he’s right there with the arm triangle. It’s in deep, and there’s no escaping for Lewis, who meekly taps out. All over.
