Huerta stalked Maynard around the cage for much of the first round, finally landing some punches in the final minute and a half of the first round. Huerta was able to stifle Maynard's takedown attempts in round one, as well.
In the second, Maynard landed a few strong shots on Huerta, including one that knocked "El Matador" down for a second. However, Huerta was the aggressor, throwing more combinations and backing Maynard up.
Huerta continued to pus the pace as the third roud started. Maynard finally got a takedown, and tried to control Huera throughout the third. Maynard attempted a kimura that was downright gruesome, as he bent Huerta's arm back in a way that arms don't go. Huerta survived until the two stalemated and were stood up by referee Dan Miragliotta.
