Round 1: No glove touch to start this one. Pettis throws a hard head kick right off the bat. Lauzon closing the distance, putting on the pressure. Pettis keeping his cool and firing back. Pettis lands a left head kick that floors Lauzon immediately, knocking him out cold. The follow up ground and pound is academic.
