Round 1

The fighters trade leg kicks early in the round as they feel each other out while searching for an opening. Niether man can gain an advantage on the feet as they continue to trade strikes in the center of the cage. The fighters clinch along the fencing and Borgomeo lands a stinging right hand. With less than a minute to go in the round, Gomez takes the fight to the mat with a takedown. He finished the round from the top position and took the early lead on the Sherdog.com scorecard 10-9.

Round 2
Gomez begins to assert himself as the second round gets underway. He lands a flurry of punches and clinches to throw a knee. Gomez changes levels and takes the bout to the canvas where he quickly takes Borgomeo's back. Borgomeo turns back into his opponent and after a short struggles regains half-guard. Gomez scrambles and scampers all the way round Borgomeo and takes his back once again only to have Borgomeo turn back once again. Gomez resets his base and takes Borgomeo's left arm in a text book armbar to end the fight at 4:06 of the second stanza.
