Chris Lytle vs. Brian Ebersole
Round 1
Steve Perceval is the referee for this clash of American welterweights. For his UFC debut, the Sydney-based Ebersole has shaved his chest hair into a large arrow, which points to his face. There is no touch of gloves as both men crouch low and stalk. Ebersole cartwheels forward and tries to plant his heels on Lytleís face, but itís blocked. Ebersole takes a right hand from Lytle and feigns shock as he walks it off around the perimeter. Lytle pushes forward from the center and drills a punch to the body of Ebersole, then goes up top with a right hand. Both men feint and get the other to flinch. Ebersole shoots and gets his head caught under Lytleís left arm. He bucks and tumbles forward, but still canít extract himself from Lytleís guillotine. Ebersole winds up underneath with a headlock of his own, but Lytle gets free. As Ebersole stands, Lytle grabs the guillotine again and falls back to guard. This one doesnít last long and the pair clinch against the fence with 60 seconds to go. Lytle pulls guard with another guillotine with 45 seconds left, then switches to a triangle. Neither stick and Ebersole, from guard, Mashes Lytleís head into the mat with his chest. Lytle is cut underneath his left eye at the end of the round.

Round 2
Lytle lands hard right hooks and uppercuts while Ebersole jokes them off. Nice right hand by Ebersole, but his follow-up shot is stuffed. Lytle charges in and lands some uppercuts in close quarters, then drills one to the body of Ebersole. Out of nowhere, Ebersole connects with a huge, high right knee and Lytle's legs give way. He crumbles to the floor near the fence and Ebersole pounces. Lytle is hanging in there as Ebersole slaps on a brabo choke. Lytle escapes but heís still badly hurt with a minute left on the clock. Back on the feet, Ebersole lands knees in the clinch and scores with a standing elbow. Lytle grabs at a guillotine and jumps guard, and Ebersole slams him to the floor. He grinds and mashes Ebersole into the mat with his chest to the end of the round.
