The highly anticipated Metamoris 2 event went down last night (June 9, 2013) from Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, Calif., and while the all-grappling card didn't feature the most scintillating action from top to bottom, the main event of Kron Gracie vs. Shinya Aoki delivered the goods, producing the lone finish of the six-bout card.

Here's how MMAmania's Andrew Richardson described the main event match during our live play-by-play thread:

Gracie wearing the black shorts and white rash guard, with Rickson in his corner. Aoki is in all black. Gracie is smartly keeping his arms very close to his sides as the match begins. Both guys are very cautious on the feet, and they are testing the waters with grips and small trip attempts. After a few minutes, Kron pulls closed guard.
Gracie is trying to climb his legs up Aoki's back, looking for an opening. Aoki doesn't let him, and they move to Kron's open guard. Gracie grabs a guillotine as Aoki moves back into his guard! It's tight, but Aoki rolls a few times and gets out. Gracie still controlling his head, while Aoki tries to sneak around his guard. Gracie reverses his guard and goes back to the guillotine! Rolls to mount, and it's tight. Aoki taps!
Final Result: Gracie via guillotine

Metamoris 2 also saw two fights go to a draw while Braulio Estima, Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu and Andre Galvao picked up victories over their respective opponents.
