One early mistake was all it took to deny Harrah product Matt Grice a victory at the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s UFC 100 in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Grice got caught in a guillotine choke within the first minute against Shannon Gugerty after being taken down by an inside trip in the lightweight contest.

Grice was able to work his way back up to his feet, but Gugerty never let go of the choke. Gugerty took Grice down again with the choke, and referee Herb Dean stopped the bout 2:36 into the first round after Grice’s right arm went limp.

It is Grice’s second consecutive loss in the UFC. He also lost in February and is now 1-3 in the UFC and 9-3-0 overall. Gugerty improved to 12-3-0.
