Fight Announcement #2:
Dustin Pague (Team Miller) vs. Louis Gaudinot (Team Bisping)
Before the Team Bisping training session Stephen Bass pulls Bisping aside and apparently tells him that Bisping whooped his ass right before the fight and that he felt it affected him during the fight. Well Bisping doesn’t like that at all and throws Bass under the bus in front of his teammates. And people wonder why Bisping is liked so much!
Round One – Louis comes out showing good combo’s while Dustin is using his knees a lot. A minute in Dustin gets a takedown but doesn’t do anything and Louis gets back up. Both fighters are landing strikes and are really beginning to open things up. The knees of Dustin though are consistently finding there mark. Louis goes for a late takedown but gets stuffed and Dustin ends the round with his opponent against the cage.
Round Two – Thirty seconds in Dustin lands a partially blocked right hand that drops Louis to his knees. Dustin takes him completely down but Louis gets back up and actually tries for a takedown of his own.

Blood is flowing from the face of Louis as Dustin takes his back and sinks in the rear naked choke.
