ROUND 1 - Both fighters open orthodox. Middle kick from Guillard finds the mark. Left hook from Lauzon finds the mark and now Guillard is reeling. Lauzon jumps on top of Guillard, spins to the back and now has both hooks in. Guillard rolls back down, but Lauzon is aggressively submission hunting. Lauzon abandons the bicep grip and switches to the Gable Grip. Guillard is in deep trouble here and that's it. Lauzon gets the tap.
Very significant win for Lauzon here. Guillard looks heartbroken.
