Round 1: Both come out firing, but they end up clinched on the fence briefly. They separate and trade a couple blows before Nogueira shoots, but Schaub defends. Schaub looks relaxed, moving well. Nogueira moves in to punch, but gets rocked by an uppercut. Schuab is getting his jab going early, but Nogueira steps in for a solid 1-2 combination. Schaub stings Nog with the jab and lands the uppercut again. Nogueira recovers and starts stalking again, but Schaub goes right back to the jab. Nogueira rocks Schaub with a huge right hand, sending him staggering back to the cage. Nogueira follows him in and unleashes a couple more punches and sends Schaub face down to the canvas.
