R1: Anderson opens up with a kick and a left hook to the body but gets dumped with a double leg a half-minute in. War Machine almost jumps to side from full guard but settles for a high half guard. Anderson gets a knee in for half-butterfly and War Machine tries to jump pass into mount. Anderson cage walks and tries to take War Machine's back in the scramble but ends up back in guard.
War Machine, showing nice technique, passes to half and then immediately to side control. Anderson immediately hits a sweep and puts War Machine on his back but can't hold him there long. Anderson changes levels nicely and surprisingly nails a single leg. War Machine angles for an armbar but a cleaving left hand from Anderson changes his mind. Anderson stands up and gives War Machine enough room to do the same. Anderson dives on another weird single leg and War Machine sprawls and gets on top as the bell sounds. Back and forth round with neither really clearly distinguishing themselves. 10-10.
R2: War Machine nails a power double after a brief exchange on the feet and again looks to step over into half guard. He postures up and rains down a big right and then locks in the crucifix from side control and hammers a few unhindered lefts to Anderson's face, who's desperately trying to buck War Machine off. He finally does with a little persistence and War Machine slides into back mount on the transition, banging right hands off Anderson's melon with his left in choke position. The ploy works -- Anderson's distracted by the punches and War Machine cinches up the rear-naked choke, switching to a Gable grip to finish it off.
War Machine defeats Vaughn Anderson by submission (rear-naked choke), Round 2
