     Greene clinched, and pressed Mysiala against the fence to start the opening round. Mysiala was able to shrug him off and reset 30 seconds in though. They both threw some big punches, and then Greene tried to clinch again. There was an awkward scramble, which ended with Greene landing on top in side control 90 seconds into the round, but Mysiala was able to kick him off and reset again. Mysiala threw some solid shots, but he was having trouble getting inside the ridiculous 82" reach of Greene. Green rocked him with a couple of hard knees, he dropped him, unloaded with a lot of big punches on the ground, and Mysiala scrambled back to his feet, only to get knocked out by a brutal right uppercut. That was a wild fight, and a fantastic finish by Maurice Greene.

      The first round started with a lot of clinching, as Kianzad pressed Lehner against the fence for a couple of minutes. When they split up, they started boxing at a decent pace, with Kianzad probably landing the better strikes in most of their exchanges. Kianzad landed a quick takedown with 25 seconds left in the round. Round one clearly goes to Kianzad.
     Kianzad scored a quick takedown to start the second round. Lehner worked her way back to her feet 90 seconds into the round. Kianzad continued to chip away at Lehner while clinching and pressing her against the fence for a minute or so, and then she dumped her to the ground again with 2 minutes left in the round. I scored this fight 20-18 for Pannie Kianzad, and all 3 judges agreed, giving her the unanimous decision victory.

      Frazier plowed through Silva as soon as this fight started with a massive left hand, and he ended up inside Silva's guard, while pinning him against the fence, where Frazier unloaded with some big punches & elbows. He continued to pound on Silva for the duration of the round with some solid punches, while Silva showed zero ground game. He just held Frazier in his closed guard, and let him punch him repeatedly. Round one clearly goes to Frazier.
     Frazier plowed his way into the clinch to start the second round, and Silva landed a few solid punches on the way in, and then broke out of the clinch 45 seconds into the round. Frazier scored another takedown 90 seconds into the round, and then spent the rest of the round on top in half mount, beating up Silva with punches. Silva really didn't show any skills in this fight, and Frazier dominated him for 10 minutes, leading to the unanimous decision victory for Justin Frazier.

      These girls traded a few strikes, and then Allen took down Stoliarenko, and started whaling on her with big punches, while Stoliarenko just flopped around with an awkward guard. The referee was warning Stoliarenko inside the first minute that he would stop the fight if she didn't fight back. Stoliarenko finally stood back up 2 minutes into the round, after Allen already beat the shit out of her bloody face. Stoliarenko then scored a quick takedown, and landed in half mount. Stoliarenko pounded on Allen with some punches, and then pulled back for an armbar, finishing the fight with less than 90 seconds remaining in the first round. That was a good show of toughness by Julija Stoliarenko, as well as a nice display of finishing ability. This was a good fight overall.

      Batista shot for a single leg as soon as the fight started, and quickly dumped Parisian to the ground 10 seconds into the opening round. Parisian quickly stood back up, but Batista was clinging to his back, and was able to whip him to the ground again. Parisian stood back up immediately, and Batista continued to grind him against the fence. He threw him down again, threw a few punches, and then Parisian stood up again. That continued to happen, over and over again, Parisian sort of tried to setup a Kimura a few times, but Batista was pretty much just smothering him for the duration of the round. Parisian also landed a few solid elbows to the side of Batista's head, as Batista was shooting for those takedowns, but he wasn't able to cause any significant damage. Batista blasted Parisian with some big punches that caused the referee to pay close attention, but Parisian was able to do just enough to survive until the end of the round. Batista locked on a rear-naked choke to finish the round, but Parisian refused to give up. You could argue that was a 10-8 round for Michel Batista.
     Parisian kicked Batista in the body to start the second round, and then Batista took him down again. Batista pinned Parisian against the fence, and blasted him with some huge knees to the body, some big punches to the head, and the referee warned Parisian again that he needs to defend himself. Parisian stood up 90 seconds into the round, and then Batista slammed the shit out of him, bringing him to the ground with a loud thud. The referee warned Parisian several times that he was going to stop the fight, and then he stopped it at 2:10 of the second round. That was a great performance by Michel Batista, and a disappointing loss for Parisian.

      These girls both came out swinging, and then Letson clinched and pressed Malecki against the fence 20 seconds into the opening round. They eventually split up and started trading some heavy punches, and a massive cut opened up on Letson's forehead. They continued to brawl with each other, and then Letson dumped Malecki to the ground with 90 seconds left in the round. She landed in side control, and started chipping away with short elbows. They eventually stood up, and Letson pressed Malecki against the fence and punched her with short shots for the final minute of the round. I'm giving that first round to Letson, even though she was bleeding a LOT. The cut was high on her forehead, so the fight was able to continue without the doctors questioning anything.
     The second round started with some more strikes, Letson tried to clinch again, and Malecki was able to throw her to the ground. Malecki then jumped on her back and locked on a rear-naked choke, but she didn't have control with her legs, so it was 100% just her arms, so she had to let it go. Letson scored a takedown 2 minutes into the round, and pinned Malecki in the center of the cage, as she settled into her closed guard. Letson spent the rest of the round beating the shit out of Malecki on the ground. I'm scoring this fight 20-18 for Letson after two rounds. All 3 judges agreed, giving Letson the unanimous decision victory after two rounds.

      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Dieppa was able to drag Sosoli to the ground with a body lock a minute into the opening round. From there, Dieppa basically just smothered him, while landing some short punches. Round one clearly goes to Dieppa.
     Sosoli threw a few punches to start the second round, and then Dieppa took him down 30 seconds into the round again, and spent the rest of the round smothering him, and beating him up with short punches. This was a clear cut 20-18 unanimous decision victory for Dieppa.

      Chiasson came out, kicked Pacheco in the head, threw a knee to her body, and then created some distance and circled around the outside. Pacheco clinched, and pressed Chiasson against the fence. Chiasson tried to create some space to throw some more strikes, and Pacheco kept clinching, until she finally threw Chiasson to the ground 2 minutes into the opening round. Chiasson wrestled her way into side control, Pacheco went for a guillotine, and Chiasson scrambled to take Pacheco's back with 2 minutes left in the round. She punched Pacheco repeatedly in the head and face from back mount, until the referee finally stopped the fight. That was a strong performance by Macy Chiasson, as she gets the first round TKO stoppage.
