Round 1 - Catchweight bout here, as Johnson failed to make the 175-pound agreed-upon catchweight. He gives up 20 percent of his purse to Nelson, who makes his UFC debut. Johnson gets a strong round of boos. Herb Dean is our ref, and he'll get things going. They touch gloves. Interesting style for Nelson, and he nearly lands a big head kick that gets Johnson's attention quickly. Nelson now switches stances and starts to work leg kicks. Then he ties Johnson up pretty easily and the fight hits the floor. Johnson works for submissions, looking for an arm, and maybe a heel, but Nelson spins out of danger and into side control. And then with relative ease, Nelson passes to full mount. Johnson is in a bad place with still three minutes left in the round. Nelson takes Johnson's back and gets one hook in and starts to work on the rear-naked choke. He's got the body triangle on, and on tightly. Johnson is pulling away, but Nelson lands a few punches. He keeps back mount as Johnson tries to find a way out. But there isn't going to be one. Nelson gets the RNC on tight, and pretty quickly JOhnson is grimacing and has to tap. It's a very impressive debut. Gunnar Nelson def. DaMarques Johnson via submission (rear-naked choke) - Round 1, 3:34
