Hathaway went for a knee tap take down and dropped Maguire but his own momentum carried him past the fallen Maguire who hopped back up. Maguire finally landed some shots then shot in for a take down of his own but Hathaway pulled a switch and fended Maguire off.

Hathaway got Maguire down from a body lock about a minute into the second. The two stalemated in Maguire's half guard before Hathaway stood up following a butterfly sweep attempt from Maguire. He dropped back down and Maguire went for a triangle but Hathaway quickly escaped. Hathaway eventually got side control and landed some shots from the top.

It was too little, too late for Maguire.
