#1 Light Heavyweight: Glover Teixeira vs Karl Roberson
Round 1: Karl Roberson and Glover Teixeira faced off in a fight that neither fighter had time to prepare for. The two faced off, and Teixeira went for the level change and tried for a takedown. Unfortunately for him, Roberson took advantage and hit him with elbows knocking Teixeira down, and then went for the Ground and Pound.
Teixeira closed the distance on the ground but was almost knocked out. Teixeira got up and took Roberson down, and mounted him instead of going for the Ground and Pound himself and an Arm Triangle.
Teixeira put Roberson in a tight Arm Triangle, and that was it. Roberson tapped out.
Results: Glover Teixeira defeated Karl Roberson via Submission (Arm Triangle, Round 1, 3 minutes and 21 seconds)
