Shalorus begins the round with a significant mouse under his left eye. Back to the exchanges of the opening round until Shalorus scores a takedown. Miller may have partially pulled guard there, and he stands right back up. Now Miller takes Shalorus down, instantly taking the back of the “Prince of Persia” and locking up a tight body triangle. Miller complains that Shalorus is grabbing his glove and Mulhall warns Shalorus. Still 2:30 left on the clock as Miller continues to work for the rear-naked choke. Shalorus is looking to twist around and into Miller’s guard, but Miller’s body lock is tight. Unable to slip his arm under the chin, Miller opts for a palm-to-palm RNC attempt. Shalorus grimaces but doesn’t tap. Miller goes for it again; the hold is more of a neck crank than a choke, and Shalorus doesn’t look like he’s going to tap to it. The round ends with Miller firing off punches from back control.
