Gray Maynard beat Kenny Florian by unanimous decision, staying undefeated in his professional MMA career and controlling the fight with a wrestling style that is brutally effective but not particularly entertaining to the fans.
There was a long feeling out process in the first round, with Florian landing just a few kicks and Maynard landing nothing at all. For the first four minutes of the first round, Florian was able to fight his fight, and although Maynard did manage to secure a takedown in the round's final minute.
With about two minutes left in the second round Maynard started going for the takedown again, and this time he got into side control and hurt Florian with some hard punches.
In the third Maynard put Florian on his back again, although this time Florian was more active from the bottom, landing some punches to the face as well as an upkick, and he twice tried to secure an omoplata.
"I'd love to come back here and have you guys cheer for me some time," Maynard said as the fans booed him at the end of a fairly boring fight.
