ROUND 1 - Both fighters come out orthodox. Lawal already stalking, but yet not engage. Gracie jabbing, but hitting nothing but air. Lawal feinting level changing, but not shooting. Lawal swings a left and misses. Now Gracie is trying to corner Lawal, but can't get it. Lots of inactivity during the round, mostly with Lawal trying to corner and stalk the jiu-jitsu black belt. Towards the end of the round, Lawal nails Gracie with an overhand right and drops the jiu-jitsu black belt the mat. One more punch from Lawal and the referee steps in to stop it.

Strikeforce results: Muhammed Lawal defeats Roger Gracie by KO at 4:33 of round 1.
