Read Dallas Winston's play-by-play below:
Barao scores with a teep to the face but his resulting high kick and one-two are blocked. Gagnon forces a clinch and wings a wild left hand as they separate. Gagnon ties up with Barao again to the chagrin of the crowd. Gagnon commits to a double leg but he's not even close. Barao briefly switches to a guillotine but lets it go and the ref separates them again. They collide with mutual flurries and this time Barao pursues an outside trip from the clinch, and gets it. It's brief as Gagnon stands back up and circles off the fence. Gagnon lands a short elbow on the break but gets taken down in the next exchange, and Barao immediately transitions to full mount in pursuit of an arm triangle. Barao goes back to side control after securing the hold and Gagnon taps.
