UFC 100 RESULTS: Jon Fitch vs. Paulo Thiago


Jon Fitch vs. Paulo Thiago

Round 1

The two dance around early. Fitch with a takedown attempt but Thiago secures a guillotine with an arm in. Thiago switches to a darce choke but his legs aren't free to twist his body into the submission hold. Fitch is controlling the legs and waiting things out. Fitch is trying to adjust his position but the choke seems to get deeper. Fitch frees his head and transitions slowly to Thiago’s back. Thiago works for a single against the fencing as Fitch defends and strikes with his right elbow and fist. Fitch works a kimura on the left arm of Thiago as time runs out.

Round 2

After a right hand from Fitch, the pace slows to crawl as the AKA fighter and Thiago trade single attempts from the clinch against the fencing. Fitch slams Thiago to the floor and slowly advances to the back. Thiago turtles and defends as Fitch rides his back. Fitch works for a rear-naked choke and runs out of time.

Round 3

Fitch closes the distance and gets a double-leg after avoiding a Fitch uppercut. Much like the first round, Thiago turtles and Fitch goes slowly to the back. Fitch gets both hooks in and then turns his opponent for the mount. Thiago rolls over and gives up his back. Thiago stands and nearly gets a takedown following a scramble. Fitch takes the top position and fights off an anaconda attempt. Fitch again goes to the back of Thiago, though this time he locks on a body triangle. Fitch punches the head and crossfaces while trying to sneak his arm under the chin.
