And we’re live. Both Bowles and Page making their UFC debuts tonight. It’s been a year since Bowles has appeared in the cage, his last appearance resulting in a loss to Dominick Cruz. Bowles and Page met in the cage once before in 2008, with Bowles winning via first round submission.
Round 1: Bowles wearing a knee brace on his right. Page scores with a head kick and follow up knee. Page putting on the pressure. Nice leg kick from Page and then a jumping knee. Another digging leg kick for Page. Bowles lands with a body shot while Page lands another leg kick. Page whiffs on a pair of haymakers. Another solid knee lands for Page. Bowles gets poked in the eye, then lands a solid right hand to the body. An uppercut lands for Bowles that wobbles Page. Bowles takes a moment, swarms and gets Page to the ground. A volley of punches is followed bu a guillotine choke that puts Page to sleep. Looks like he was right in saying Page hadn’t changed much from their first fight, as this fight ended the same way that their first meeting did.
Brian Bowles defeated Damacio Page via submission (guillotine) at 3:30 of Round 1.
