Check out Dallas Winston's play-by-play of Demian Maia vs. Carlos Condit:
R1: Condit comes out switching stances, eventually settling for a left round kick from southpaw. Maia shoots a double leg and drives through to complete it. Condit goes to deep half guard but Maia denies the sweep and flattens Condit out. Maia, in a transition that perfectly embodies his grappling sorcery, somehow teleports to back control. In a flash, Maia has both hooks in, then a body triangle while fishing for the choke. Condit makes the fatal mistake of trying to break the body triangle by hand-fighting and Maia threads his arm under the chin to force the tap.
