UFC on FX 1 Results: Miller Submits Guillard, Neer Chokes Out Ludwig

Jim MillerJim Miller weathered some early damage to submit Melvin Guillard just over two minutes into the lightweight matchup, which headlined UFC on FX 1 on Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee.

Guillard got off to a strong start as he dropped Miller with knees early in the opening round, but Miller persevered and found his way onto Guillard’s back, where he locked in a rear naked choke for the submission finish.

Miller improves to 21-3 with the win and is back on track following his August loss to fellow contender Ben Henderson, while Guillard has now dropped two straight to fall to 29-10-2 after a five-fight win streak.

A similar scenario played out in the co-main event between welterweights Duane “Bang” Ludwig and Josh Neer, as Ludwig took control early with his striking, but was quickly choked unconscious with a guillotine by Neer.

In other main card action, bantamweight Mike Easton outpointed newcomer Jared Papazian in an entertaining slugfest that a majority of the judges saw for Easton, while Pat Barry escaped several near-submissions to knock Christian Morecraft out cold in the opening round.

The UFC on FX 1 prelims saw Jorge Rivera retire with a TKO win over Eric Schafer, while Khabib Nurmagomedov, Charlie Brenneman, Fabricio Camoes, Daniel Pineda, and Nick Denis also picked up wins.
