Duran started the fight with a takedown and Rivera responded by sinking a guillotine choke that Duran was able to slip out of.
The fighters then stood and once again Rivera had the choke, but Duran was able to get out.
The two then stood against the cage, exchanging strikes until Duran looked for a choke of his own. Rivera then ended up on top and delivered some strong strikes while Duran look for room for a submission form the bottom.
Rivera delivered a strong left that staggered Duran early in the second round where he broke his hand. After a short break for a kick to the groin Duran again went for a takedown and Rivera again attempted a choke and again failed.
After some ground work, Duran took the back of Rivera and worked a body triangle, but the clock was his enemy and he could not do much other than maintain control.
The third round began with Duran looking to land some kicks. Duran then got the takedown and moved into side control, avoiding a choke attempt for the first time. Rivera slipped out and Duran took the back of Rivera sinking in the body triangle and the rear naked choke.
Duran with the submission win at 1:57 of Round Three.
