     These guys are pretty big dudes, and they both came out ready to brawl, but it was pretty clear that Shawn Jordan had the better technical boxing skills, and he was able to pick apart Thompson in both rounds, until eventually near the end of the second round, he landed a big uppercut, knocked Thompson to the ground, and finished him off with a few more punches. Really impressive win for Shawn Jordan.

Submission
(Triangle Armbar)

      That was one of the slickest submissions I've seen in a while. Mackens Samerzier looked to have pretty crisp striking in this fight, but Pineda was able to take him to the ground, he got the full mount, he locked on a triangle choke almost immediately, and then grabbed the arm and tried to snap it, forcing Mackens to tapout before he even knew what was going on. Daniel Pineda looked solid in this fight, especially for a guy that took a shot to the balls early in the round.

      OH MY GOD! That was awesome! Some punches were thrown, Waldburger grabbed Hecht, took him to the ground, Hecht tried to roll over, but his arm was stuck behind his back, so Waldburger grabbed it, dove forward, and nearly snapped that arm right off of Hecht's torso. FUCKING AWESOME submission victory by T.J. Waldburger.

      This fight was ok. Noke did a good job controlling Craig in the first round, taking him to the ground and beating him up a bit. The second round was all Craig, because Noke looked like he was falling asleep, so Craig beat his ass. The third round was pretty close until the last 2 minutes or so, where Craig secured a Goldberg style spear, taking Noke to the ground, where Craig finished the fight on top. So yeah, I gave the fight to Craig, 29-28, and all 3 judges agreed.

      Oh man, Siler is the Miller Killer, taking out Cole's brother Micah, and now here he is taking out Cole in a pretty hard fought 15 minute war. Siler won the first two rounds in my opinion, pretty clearly, and Miller made a huge comeback in the third round, taking that round. So in the end, Steven Siler's boxing won this fight for him, via unanimous decision, 29-28. That's a pretty huge win for Steven Siler.

      Wow! Perosh fights are always weird, because he has crazy submission skills, but he always seems to end up on the ground, on top of people, punching & elbowing their faces, until they're a bloody mess. I don't know if this guy just likes the sight of blood, or if it's all just a weird fluke that he ends up with ground & pound finishes. Either way, Anthony Perosh looked awesome here, Penner showed some solid wrestling skills, but he wasn't able to do anything to defend against the onslaught brought on by Perosh.

      BAMMY WHAM! KABLAM! James Te Huna is a beast! He came out throwing HARD leather, cutting Rosa's face all to fuck, with huge uppercuts, and hooks. Eventually, after a lopsided contest, Rosa crumbled in the corner, Te Huna ABSOLUTELY CRUSHED HIM with his striking, and the referee stopped the fight. Amazing fight overall, and I think I'm about ready to get on the James Te Huna hype train!

      This was a pretty good boxing match for the most part. Court McGee threw a lot of great shots & spinning elbows and stuff, but the problem is, most of the REALLY GOOD ONES, didn't land. Costas Philippou on the other hand, kept a pretty good pace going throughout the fight, and was able to score his way to a victory, by BASICALLY outboxing Court McGee. Pretty good fight overall.

Draw
(Majority)
15:00
      Well then... For the first flyweight fight in UFC history, we're left with quite the predicament. Both guys came out brawling, it was a pretty great fight (but as usual, with the small guys, nobody ever seemed in danger of being finish, because there simply isn't enough power in there for someone to get knocked out), but in the end, the first two rounds were REALLY close, I called the first round a draw, gave the second round to Johnson, and the third round, McCall EASILY won that one, slamming Johnson a couple of times, getting full back mount, and then unleashing ground & pound for the final minute of the round. Ultimately, I think McCall did enough in that third round to win the fight, but the judges for SOME ridiculous reason, gave the fight to Johnson via "Majority Decision", which is complete bullshit. After the show was over, they switched it to a "Majority Draw", but even that is bullshit in my opinion, so I'm not going to force Johnson into a loss here, but I AM going to give McCall a win by decision, based off of MY FUCKING SCORECARD, which clearly they didn't take into account. So yeah, as far as I'm concerned, Ian McCall won this fight.

      There we go! That's what I'm talking about! Joseph Benavidez, apparently the only guy in the 125 pound division that can KNOCK PEOPLE THE FUCK OUT! He beat the shit out of Urushitani in the first round, taking him to the ground, and finishing the round with Urushitani trapped in a rear-naked choke. The second round started, Benavidez immediately punched Urushitani in the face, knocking him to the floor, and he followed it up with a lot of punches on the ground, and the referee stopped the fight. BENAVIDEZ FOR THE WIN! Someone do me a favor, and let Demetrious Johnson & Ian McCall know that THIS is how you finish a fight, to avoid leaving it in the hands of the judges.

Submission
(Guillotine Choke)
14:12
      Hell yeah! This was one of the best comebacks ever! Thiago Alves BASICALLY kicked Kampmann's ass for the first two rounds, and even the third, all the way up until the last minute, where Alves shot in for a takedown. Everyone assumed Kampmann was done, but during that takedown attempt, Kampmann immediately locked on a guillotine choke, rolling over into full mount, while still holding that guillotine, forcing Thiago to submit with less than a minute left on the clock. Thiago Alves is scary, but Kampmann IS A BEAST!!! WAR KAMPMANN!!!
