     This fight was clearly made for the undercard. I don't really care about either fighter at this point. With that being said, Riki Fukuda clearly won all 3 rounds, for the unanimous decision. Nobody really did anything noteworthy here, and it almost put me to sleep.
      Man, is it possible for 125 pound fighters to knock each other out? This entire fight basically consisted of Lineker punching the shit out of Urushitani's face, and the dude fell down a couple of times, but none of the punches seem to land with that much force. In the end, Lineker was the clear winner in this fight, all 3 rounds, but I would like to see these 125 guys eventually finish a fight, eh?
      This was a pretty good little scrap, fought by both guys at a steady pace. Tezuka showed early on, that his wrestling skills were solid, and he looked like he was going to control the fight, until we realized the referee was quick on standing fighters up. Once on the feet, Bruce Leeroy (Alex Caceres), showed that his striking was going to be pretty solid, and on the ground, his submission skills were enough to negate any points Tezuka would have gained from takedowns. In the end, I gave all 3 rounds to Caceres, and so did two of the judges, but one judge was out of his mind and gave the fight to Tezuka, 29-28. Doesn't really matter though, because Caceres walks away with the split-decision victory.
      This fight really didn't do anything for me. I couldn't care less about either fighter. With that being said, Mizugaki took Hougland to the ground in all 3 rounds, controlled him the entire fight, had a few decent moments where he had some ground & pound action going on. Other than that, it wasn't really a super exciting fight or anything. Mizugaki wins via unanimous decision.
      This fight was pretty badass. The only thing I remember about Jon Tuck, from before this fight, is how bad his dislocated toe looked on The Ultimate Fighter a few seasons back. With that being said, here he is with an excellent UFC debut! The first round goes to Tuck due to his aggressive Jiu-Jitsu skills. The second round also goes to Tuck for the same reason. Zhang landed a great takedown in the first round, and showed some solid striking in the beginning of the second round though, so he definitely deserves some recognition for all of that. The third round consisted of Zhang beating up Tuck with his punches, while Tuck countered with some solid striking skills. Ultimately, this was a pretty great fight between two guys that lack big names.
      Well, this was a pretty good fight I guess. I personally gave the fight to Danzig, 29-28, and one judge agreed with me, but the other two judges gave the fight to Takanori Gomi, which results in Takanori Gomi winning via split-decision. Technically, it probably should have been a draw. Somehow, this fight got "Fight of the Night". It was solid, but overall, the entire night has been pretty lackluster so far.
      Dong Hyun Kim is a badass! In my opinion, this was probably the fight of the night. He completely dominated the BJJ Black Belt, Paulo Thiago, taking him to the ground at will, COMPLETELY dominating him while grappling on the ground, Kim's striking was solid, he was aggressive, he was confident, he was BADASS! Dong Hyun Kim is the man, and he wins via unanimous decision.
(Arm-Triangle Choke)
      This was a pretty cool fight. I was disappointed that Nedkov wasn't a little more violent in this fight (after the last fight I saw of his, against Luiz Cane), but it was still a good fight. Nedkov started the fight like a bull, pushing Silva up against the cage, and showing some wild striking, etc... but ULTIMATELY, Silva took Nedkov down in the third round (easily), quickly got the mount, secured the arm-triangle choke, and Nedkov tapped. Silva looked pretty solid in this fight, Nedkov, not so much.
      Oh God... that was gross... The first 2 minutes were pretty slow, not much going on really, Franklin looked like his striking was going to be ok, BUT THEN... Franklin kicked Le's leg, Le countered with a huge punch, SMASHING Rich's chin, and Franklin got KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT, falling face first in brutal fashion. Seriously, that was a gross knockout. Franklin needs to retire, I like the dude, but he's done man...
