Here's Dallas Winston's play-by-play of the fight:
R1: Brunson spears a long left but can't follow behind it to secure a clinch. He tries the same approach but lands the long lead left. Carneiro ducks two punches and shoots a takedown just to get his back off the fence; Brunson avoids it. Carneiro shuffles forward throwing strikes but loses his balance awkwardly, falling to a knee. Brunson happily capitalizes by kneeling down cautiously into Carneiro's guard and pelting him with a few hard shots, then loosening both hands in rapid succession until the ref shows mercy.
