The first minute of the fight is spent with both fighters circling and wiating for the other to attack. It is Norifumi Yamamoto who got off first but Lee quickly responded. Yamamoto clinched up and on the break threw a high kick. Lee was able to close the distance but was unable to complete the takedown. Yamamoto landed a right hook that took Lee's legs out momentarily and Yamamoto pushed forward trying to finish the fight. Lee did well defending and survived Kid's onslaught. Lee landed a big flying knee and it was only Kid's wrestling that kept him in the fight. Right hook landed for Lee. Lee wobbled Yamamoto with body shots and a hook to the head. Yamamoto took the fight to the ground and Lee threw his legs up quickly and switched from the triangle to armbar. Kid Yamamoto tried to defend but was forced to tap out.
Kid Yamamoto is now 0-3 in the UFC. It is unlikely that he'll receive another shot in the promotion.
