A welterweight tilt between Niko Price and Brandon Thatch kicked off tonight’s UFC 207 prelims on FS1.
Round one begins and the fighters trade leg kicks to start. Thatch comes forward and lands another hard low kick. Niko quickly replies with one of his own. The fighters clinch and exchange knees inside. They break and Thatch charges forward with a combination. Price returns fire with a low kick and then shoots in for a takedown attempt. Thatch defends and lands a hard knee inside. Niko continues to work for a takedown and gets it. Price begins working from full guard. He lands an elbow and then advances to the half guard position. Thatch quickly scrambles back to full guard. He begins working for a kimura attempt from the bottom. Niko scrambles and breaks free of the kimura hold and winds up in half guard. Niko looks to working towards and arm triangle submission. Thatch explodes but is unable to shake Niko. Price again locks in the arm triangle choke and it is tight. Thatch has no choice but to tapout.
