     Mark Bocek is always cool to see fight, but who the hell is Joe Brammer? Doesn't matter I guess. The first round consisted of not much, and then Bocek got the takedown, got on Brammer's back, and locked on the rear-naked choke. That's all she wrote.

      This fight was decent, not really all that exciting, other than a few submission attempts that Dennis Hallman threw out there in then first couple of rounds. As soon as he thought he had it in the bank though, within the final minute of the last round, John Howard started throwing thunder, and knocked Hallman the fuck out! Excellent comeback at the last minute, for John Howard, this was a much needed win for the guy that spends a ton of time at the barber shop, getting his cool tattoo style hair did...

      This fight was pretty ok. Rodney Wallace had some pretty great takedowns, and a couple of slams, and showed that for the most part, he had better wrestling skills than Stann. Stann on the other hand, showed he had slightly better striking, and after he was eventually able to defend against Wallace's wrestling, Stann started to take the rounds away from Wallace. In the end, I scored the fight 29-28 for Stann, and all 3 judges basically agreed.

      I wasn't really into this fight at all, and I don't think the crowd was very pumped for it either. With that being said, I thought Wren was more exciting, he brought the fight to Madsen, and I personally gave him all 3 rounds. With that being said, two of the judges gave the fight to Madsen, I thought that was bullshit, but whatever, it really doesn't matter much when you have a couple of heavyweights that nobody cares about, fighting on the undercard. I still think Wren should have won this fight though.

(Punches & Knees)

      To be honest, I didn't really pay much attention in this fight. From what I saw, McSweeney won both of the first 2 rounds, but it was kind of a weird sloppy fight overall. In the third round, he caught Schoonover with a knee, and then kind of finished him with punches, or something? Or Schoonover just decided to randomly take a nap? I don't know what happened. This fight wasn't anything special though.

KO
(Punches)
5:10
      This fight was weird. The first round consisted of Marcus "Big Baby" Jones completely dominating Mitrione on the ground for the majority of the fight, with takedowns, and "somewhat decent" Jiu-Jitsu skills. The second round started, and Mitrione punched him a couple of times, and Jones fell to the ground like a gigantic tree. Should have been exciting based on the 2nd round knockout, but yeah, this fight didn't really matter to anybody, did it?
89.8
Submission
(Rear-Naked Choke)
7:22
      This was a strange fight. The first round's highlights consisted of Veach picking Edgar up off the ground MULTIPLE times, and slamming him to the ground like a pro wrestler. Veach pretty much destroyed Edgar in the first round. The second round was pretty slow paced, until Edgar clipped Veach, Veach went to the ground with wobbly legs. Edgar jumped on his back, beat him up for a few seconds, and then locked on the rear-naked choke. Good show by both fighters, just kind of weird, like both guys were nervous or something.

      This fight probably had the most hype & excitement behind it, since both guys are supposed to be INSANE CRAZY WILDMAN brawlers, but this fight FUCKING SUCKED. The first round sucked & was pointless, and the third round sucked & was pointless. The only fighter that did anything at all in this fight was Kimbo Slice in the 2nd round, where he unleashed a CRAZY suplex, smashing Houston's neck against the ground, followed by some pretty strong ground & pound, and even a rear-naked choke attempt, along with several more takedowns. Still, even though the 2nd round kicked ass, this fight as a whole was a joke.

DQ
(Illegal Downward Elbows)
4:14
      Fuck that, that's some bullshit. This fight basically consisted of Jon Jones throwing Hamill to the ground, and then pounding the shit out of him for several minutes with GIGANTIC elbows & punches, and the referee should have stopped the fight, because Hamill wasn't even able to defend himself with one arm. Instead, the referee let the fight go on, eventually Jon Jones threw some illegal downward elbows, and the referee stopped the fight and gave it to Hamill because Hamill was unable to continue. BUT! If Hamill would have gotten up, then Jones would have FUCKING CRUSHED HIM, right? Hamill wasn't able to continue regardless, so yeah, fuck that, this is the dumbest most bullshit ass decision I've ever seen. THAT is why I'm personally going to give the fight to Jon Jones, because as far as I'm concerned, the dude is still undefeated. You can't "WIN" a fight by getting your ass kicked so badly that you are unable to continue, right? So Hamill didn't win this fight. PERIOD.

      This fight was just about the only worthwhile fight on the card, and it was good to see it end quickly, because I was pretty bored with this event as a whole. Schaub looked aggressive for the most part, but Nelson was able to counter a punch, and he knocked Schaub on his ass. So yeah, Roy Nelson is your Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Champion... Cool I guess.
