Round 1 – Nascimento with an early low kick. Ulanbekov returns fire. Punches exchanged in the pocket. Both men take turns with punches in kicks in close range. Nascimento leaps forward with a knee, but that allows Ulanbekov to wrap the body and trip the action to the canvas. Half-guard for Nascimento. He works the legs high, looking for the triangle. Ulanbekov gets the arms inside, and Nascimento has to reset. He immediately goes back to the triangle. Not there, but he sweeps to the top.

He gets inside and can’t get the takedown but wraps the body and presses the action to the fence. Nascimento turns his attention to the right arm, setting up a kimura grip and slips to the canvas. Interesting choice. Ulanbekov keeps the arm tucked as he works from his knees. Nascimento stays on the arm, and he’s getting some leverage now. Ulanbekov’s arm extended, but it’s straight. Ulanbekov able to work it free after a little scare. Nascimento with some elbows from his back. Ulanbekov’s with punches from top. Strikes traded on the floor. One minute left.
