War Machine vs. Blas Avena - Round 1 - War Machine is stalking early and he throws a flurry but Avena catches him and takes him down. War Machine is able to get up and land a few shots before getting a takedown of his own. Avena gets up and they're engaged against the cage with Avena landing to the body with a series of knees. Machine looks to be tiring but he does get the takedown and he's got a mounted crucifix. Avena can't do anything about the punches he's eating and that's it. War Machine wins by TKO (punches from mounted crucifix), round 1.
