Garza vs. Jabouin Wiki Update Wiki

In the opening bout of UFC 129, Yves Jabouin took on Pablo Garza.

Garza game out fast in the first round, landing several knees in the clinch and keeping Yves Jabouin off-balance. Jabouin found success with damaging low kick throughout the first round, repeatedly nailing the inside and outside of Garza's lead leg. Garza attempted to deliver a series of knees in the clinch, and then beautifully jumped up for a flying triangle, trapping Jabouin and pulling him to the mat with the triangle nearly tied on. Garza adjusted, gained top position with the triangle still on, and a few moments later Jabouin was forced to tap after having been in control for the first few minutes. An impressive comeback submission for Pablo Garza.

Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Garza commented, "I'm feeling great, not many people know I've been making history... first 145er ever in the UFC... first person to fight at the biggest frickin' UFC show in history... We wanted to get the clinch and I was telling myself as soon as I land one knee or even half a knee he would try to protect himself... the rest is history."
