UFC 128 Fight Card: Nate Marquardt vs. Dan Miller, Round 1
Dan Miller and Nate Marquardt kicked off the action by eschewing the usual feeling-out process and getting right to the hostilities. Miller seemed to be getting the better of the early going, landing a nice uppercut in the clinch before grabbing a takedown and then threatening with a sincere choke attempt.
However, Nate the Great escaped the sub attempt with a nice defensive ground game and was able to take top position in the process. From there, it went decidedly more poorly for Dan—the New Jersey native swallowed a straight left from Marquardt before finding himself on the receiving end of a monumental slam from Nate (OK, so it might've only looked that good).
Despite the early salvo, I think it was a close 10-9 round in the favored Marquardt's direction.
It's also worth mentioning that Miller also flirted with a kimura and was the closest to finishing the scrap, as noted by Rogan. So it wouldn't be crazy to call the first for Miller.
