R1: Al's off to a good start w/ his solid strikes & he blocks a couple of kicks. However, Michael takes him down w/ a body lock just as the second minute's about to tick away & then goes for that rear-naked choke (Al tried to hold the inside of the gloves, but the ref stops him from doing it too long because that's not allowed)...WIN BY SUBMISSION IN 2:47- GIVE HIM THE CONTRACT & THE DYNA STREET BOB HARLEY (he also gets a one-year TAPOUT membership)!!!!!
