Matt Mitrione vs. Brendan Schaub -- Heavyweight bout

TUF 10 competitors Brendan Schaub and Matt Mitrione, who had somewhat of a friendly rivalry, squared off on the UFC 165 pay-per-view card. The action played out on the feet early with Mitrione proving to be the faster and straighter puncher but Schaub's power allowed him to gain some ground back. Schaub unreeled a heavy right hand, followed up with a takedown, then trapped Mitrione's head when he tried to explode for an escape. Schaub adjusted the headlock grip to a D'arce choke and Mitrione, despite giving the thumbs up just a moment before, went unconscious.

  • Brendan Schaub defeats Matt Mitrione by technical submission (D'arce choke), Round 1
