     This was a pretty standard fight for Raphael Assuncao. He started with his leg kicks, and controlled the fight when it went to the ground. The first round goes to Assuncao. The second round consisted of Tamura running in with punches, and Assuncao threw a nice counter left hand, and when Tamura started to wobble, Assuncao finished him off with a flurry of punches. Solid win for Raphael Assuncao.

      Meh, who cares about this one, right? Still, Marcelo clearly won the first round by controlling most of the round, pinning Stittgen against the cage. The second round went to Stittgen, for landing more strikes. I thought Stittgen also won the third round for the most part, but Marcelo pinned him against the cage at the end of the round again, and started screaming like a rabid animal, while delivering body shots from the clinch. I guess this fight probably could have gone either way, I personally would have given it to Stittgen, but two of the judges gave it to Marcelo, and I don't care enough to argue this decision, considering the fact that these guys probably won't be in the UFC much longer.

(Head Kick)

      BOOM! This fight sort of pissed me off at first, because Natal was dancing around, doing that Anderson Silva style shit talking, where he didn't seem to be taking the fight seriously at all. He won the first round with his strikes, he nearly knocked out Craig in the second round, and beat him up with some ground & pound, maybe even scoring a 10-8 round for Natal, UNTIL, Craig kicked him in his fucking head, and knocked him the fuck out. Awesome comeback by Craig, with the single head kick KO. Great ending to an otherwise somewhat annoying (but pretty good) fight.

      This was a really competitive fight, with both guys showing some great grappling skills, and their ability to scramble and keep coming was impressive. I gave all 3 rounds to Cariaso, even though Ferguson rode his back for the final minute of the fight, but ultimately, Cariaso go the better of most exchanges, and for that reason, everyone gave him the fight, 30-27.

Submission
(Triangle Choke)
6:27
      That was a pretty good fight. Damacio Page looked great in this fight, kicking Caceres's ass for most of the first round, and it looked like the second round was going to be more of the same, as Page picked up Caceres and slammed him, but that momentum didn't last long, when he fell into a triangle choke, and was forced to tap. Caceres is awesome, and Page looked pretty great in this fight too.

      This was a decent 3 round fight, the problem is, I think Njokuani broke his right hand in the first round, so from that point forward, it was a very one-sided fight, with Anjos taking him to the ground, pressing him up against the cage, and BASICALLY just controlling him the entire time. Dos Anjos is really good, but considering how badly Njokuani's hand was injured (granted, dos Anjos didn't know about it), I would have liked to see dos Anjos finish this fight. Oh well, better luck next time for Njokuani I guess.

Submission
(Neck Crank)
2:33
      Nice fight! Vaughan Lee came out swinging, and looked to have some hard, tight striking skills, and once Dillashaw realized that Lee's striking might be of a higher quality of his own, he took grabbed Lee, slammed him on the ground, got on his back, went for a rear-naked choke, Lee defended against it, so Dillashaw just went for the jaw, and cranked Lee's neck back, looking like he was going to rip Lee's head off. Lee of course tapped, and the fight is over in the first round. Excellent showing by T.J. Dillashaw!

Submission
(Rear-Naked Choke)

      Awesome fight! Vemola kept running in like a bull, trying to show off his insane power, but Carmont completely shut him down. Carmont was able to take Vemola down in every round, and dominate him with his submission & wrestling skills, he's a SCARY STRONG guy, especially considering the fact that I've seen Vemola slam guys like ragdolls at 205. So yeah, after dominating Vemola, Carmont locked on a rear-naked choke for the submission victory early in the second round.

      This fight was going to be interesting, with Aaron Simpson vs. Jon Fitch, but Fitch had to pull out for some reason, so we're left with this guy coming in from outside the UFC, with an undefeated streak, but I've never heard of him, and this is his second loss in the UFC so far. Aaron Simpson pretty much kicked his ass every round, slamming him, and then pounding away at him. Simpson was never really close to finishing the fight, but he CLEARLY won this fight, so there you have it, Robertson's undefeated streak continues to only count for OUTSIDE the UFC, and Aaron Simpson makes a successful introduction to a new weight class.

      This was a pretty good ass beating, but not really a fight that made much sense to me. Joey Beltran reminds me of Paul Buentello, in that there is always that chance he'll knock you out or something, and he can take a beating, but ultimately, he's not going to be in line for a title shot anytime soon. James Te Huna on the other hand, is on his way up, riding a 3 fight winning streak at this point (with his only loss in his last 10 fights being against Alexander Gustafsson, who is going to get a title shot in the very near future.) So yeah, obviously Te Huna beat Beltran's ass in this fight, all 3 rounds, ESPECIALLY the first round which was a 10-8 round. Now let's see him fight another contender, eh?

      BAM! Two of the top guys at 185, clashing at the top, trying to earn a spot to fight against Anderson Silva! Who knows who is going to win this fight!?! Oh, what? It's over already? Weidman took Munoz down in the first round and completely controlled him for the entire round. The second round ended at the halfway mark, with Weidman throwing a big elbow to the forehead of Munoz, knocking him to the ground, and then he finished him off with some HUGE punches, that made blood squirt out of Munoz's head like a gusher. Great fight overall, and it looks like Chris Weidman is officially next in line for a title shot against Anderson Silva!
