Wagnney Fabiano vs. Akop Stepanyan

R1: "Big" Dan Miragliotta overseeing the match. Fabiano shoots early but Stepanyan skates free. Fabiano a bit hesitant to step into the powerful Russian's wheelhouse. Fabiano rushes and gets double underhooks on the cage, then switches to a body lock and hits the takedown. Stepanyan gets slippery on the mat and tries to scramble free but Fabiano is fully adhered and not having it. Fabiano slides into full mount quickly after and immediately rolls into an armbar.

In one of the most amazing displays of gritty determination I've ever witnessed, Fabiano locks up a deep, textbook armbar and tweaks the arm, fully extended, for a good 20 seconds while Stepanyan guts it out. Fabiano torques it back and forth, arches his hips into the lock even more and cranks on it again. Stepanyan finally taps.

Wagnney Fabiano defeats Akop Stepanyan by submission (armbar), Round 1
