 Round 1:

They start off circling, looking for an advantage early.  Breese was pressing forward, but only slightly.  Nakamura has a very strange stance.  They clinch up, and Nakamura landsw a slick takedown and moves into mount.  He couldn’t hold it, though, and Breese was back on his feet after a break up from the ref.  Breese looks gigantic next to Nakamura. They clinched again for a moment after an exchange, and then Breese went back to moving forward methodically.  Neither threw a lot, but each landed some decent blows when they did.
