It was tough going at first, but TUF 15 winner Michael Chiesa persevered and found victory.
Taking on salty vet Jim Miller, Chiesa came out confident in his striking and then ate enough kicks and punches to want to take it to the ground. He did, and for a moment had a smother top game in play. Miller soon reversed him and took his back, and for the rest of the round Chiesa was defending against getting choked.
Round 2 had Chiesa secure another takedown, only this time Miller went for a kneebar a little too long and Chiesa made him pay for it. Many punches to the head later, Miller was stunned, and soon Chiesa had has back and was submitting him with a choke.
The official time of the finish was 2:57 of the second round.
