Gustafsson by RNC in the 1st!

Round 1 - Referee Marc Goddard in the cage. Te Huna holds center early, and he ducks into the clinch early. Scramble into a trip, and Te Huna lands in top position. Side control for Te Huna very early on. Te Huna looks unsuccessfully for the crucifix and instead advances to half-mount. Gustafsson scrambles to full guard, and he's keeping the action tight. Te Huna now creating a little space and works in a few short punches and elbows. Te Huna stands briefly, and Gustafsson uses the minimal space to get to his feet. Te Huna pushes immediately back into the clinch. He smothers Gustafsson against the cage. Gustafsson tries to get free, and he shucks off a single-leg and tries for a standing guillotine. Not there, so he lets hit go. Gustafsson uses leverage to get his own takedown. Less than two minutes, and Gustafsson is now in side control. He circles on a kimura, but Te Huna pulls free and back to his feet. Te Huna drops down, but Gustafsson expertly spins free of the takedown attempt and moves to the back. Both hooks in, and the rear-naked choke is in. Te Huna defends it well, and Gustafsson lets go, throws a few ground and pound blows and resets on the choke. It's deep, and Te Huna has to tap. Nice turn of events for Gustafsson.
