UFC on FX 1 took place last Friday from Nashville Tenn. In the evening’s main event Jim Miller was able to weather an early storm of vicious strikes from Guillard and get the bout to the ground where he held the advantage. After a scramble for position Miller secured a figure-four body lock from back mount and submitted Guillard with a rear naked choke in round 1.
In similar fashion, Josh Neer took heavy shots from Duane Ludwig early on in their bout, but after weathering the Ludwig storm, Neer took the fight to the ground where he stopped his opponent with a guillotine choke to win the evening’s co-main event in the very first round.
