Round 1 - Gary Copeland is our referee once again. Shockley towers over Imada. He opens up with a jab. Another jab followed by a straight right. He clinches and puts Imada on his back with a trip. Hammer fist from Shockley. Imada looks for an armbar. He has it deep. Shockley lifts him high up in the air and slams Imada down into the mat. Gary Coleman immediately steps in on impact. Shockley may have broke his arm. The replay shows that Shockley definitely didn't tap, but he may have said something to Copeland at the impact. Gary Copeland tells the broadcast crew that Shockley yelled in pain which was enough to draw the stoppage.
