Vieira was relentless, however, and continued to score with takedowns while a seemingly frustrated Beltran continued to avoid engaging on the ground, instead fighting his way back to his feet every time. With under two minutes left in the opening round, the much taller Beltran started to crack Vieira with hard power punches and knees
