Munoz loading up with right hooks which are blocked by Hamill. Munoz puts a left hook to the body of Hamill, who walks him down, and lands with another awkward smattering of punches, punctuated with a stiff right cross, the best punch of the fight.

Hamill again traps Munoz on the fence and lands two hooks as Munoz attempts to weave away. As Munoz strafes along the fence, Hamill launches a right roundhouse kick that figuratively decapitates Munoz, crumpling him against the cage, and forcing referee Dan Miragliotta to rescue Munoz at 3:53 of the first round. Munoz is out cold, and remains down following the stoppage. Munoz was down for several minutes, but eventually walked out of the Octagon under his own power wearing a neck brace.
