Finally with 10 second left in the round Machida took Ortiz down and started hitting him with punches as the buzzer sounded to save Ortiz. I score this round 10-9 for Machida.

Round 2: The round started slow again. Half way into the round the fans started booing due to the lack of action. Ortiz kept chasing Machida around the cage. Machida took Ortiz down but didn’t do much. They were back standing shortly after with Ortiz continuing to chase Machida. Machida scored with a knee late in the round. Finally Tito stood back in frustration and then they started swinging as the round came to a close. 10-9 again for Machida.

Round 3: They touch gloves to start the round. Crowd is chanting for Tito. Yves Lavigne tripped and fell and stood up and laughed about it, which got applause from the crowd. Ortiz connected with some punces and knees and they boxed against the cage. Ortiz kept trying to take Machida down but couldn’t. Finally Machida caught Ortiz with a big knee and knocked Tito down and started punching away at Tito. It almost looked like it was going to be over.
