Round 1 - Referee Jason Herzog oversees this bantamweight matchup. California crowd is firmly behind Faber. Faber pushes forward and slips an overhand as he changes stances. Menjivar scores a slick toss to the floor, but Faber handles it perfectly and sweeps over to the top. Faber in side control. Menjivar scrambles underneath and gets quickly to full guard. Menjivar turns his hips, but Faber feels it and keeps control from top, landing a few short elbows. Faber seems comfortable hanging out in guard as he lands short shots from the top. Menjivar trying to scramble a bit and create opportunities, but Faber stays out of trouble. Faber postures and does eat an upkick, but he pushes back in and lands a few strong punches. Faber very busy with sharp elbows. Menjivar pushes Faber away and scrambles up, but Faber with a brilliant transition over to the back on a standing opponent. Great move, and he puts the choke on. Slick work, and the crowd comes alive. Menjivar looks for an escape but has to tap. Urijah Faber def. Ivan Menjivar via submission (rear-naked choke) - Round 1, 4:34.
