     I wasn't familiar with either of these fighters going into this fight, but Alex Garcia just BLASTED Ben Wall with a series of hard punches, knocking Wall loopy, finishing the fight in under a minute. It's hard to have a better UFC debut than that! I can't wait to see Garcia fight again, hopefully in the very near future.
      Who? Santos looks cooler I guess, so I wanted him to win, but didn't really give a shit. In the end, after a semi-boring 3 round fight, I gave the fight to Jotko, and so did all 3 judges. I don't necessarily care about seeing either of these guys fight again.
      Ha, that was awkward. Justin Scoggins came out, threw ultra fast karate kicks, he pressured Vaculik, he took him to the ground, got the full mount, beat the shit out of him, Vaculik rolled onto his stomach, Scoggins had the back mount, still dominating, beat the shit out of Vaculik some more, and the referee stopped the fight. The crowd booed the referee for stopping it a bit early, but Vaculik didn't stand a chance, so why should the ref allow him to take any more of a beating? Good ass kicking, but just completely one-sided.
      This was a decent fight, but the referee was a disaster. Every time the fight went to the ground, he would stand them back up almost immediately. Nick Ring had Caio trapped in a crucifix at one point, and was dropping elbows (perfectly legal elbows) and the referee warned him that he can't throw elbows towards the ground. FUCKING IDIOT, you can't spike your elbow down, but normal "ground & pound" elbows are perfectly legal. In the end, I gave the fight to Nick Ring, but the rest of the judges gave it to Caio, personally I don't give enough of a shit to dispute it, I'm just glad it's over.
      This was a pretty great fight! Nam Phan ALWAYS puts on crazy fights, but more often than not, seems to lose. So now he's dropping down to 135, calling out Mizugaki, and getting his ass kind of kicked a little bit. Mizugaki's striking looked extremely sharp, and even though Phan put up a hell of a fight, Mizugaki was clearly the winner of this one. With 4 in a row now, surely Mizugaki is getting close to a title shot, right?
      This was a pretty decent fight. Julie Kedzie was the only one I had heard of beforehand, but Bethe Correia was swinging for the fences, and plowing forward for most of this fight, landing harder punches, and she seemed to have a slightly more aggressive grappling game, so in the end, I gave the fight to Correia, 29-28, and 2 of the judges agreed with me.

      This fight was ok. Clint Hester clearly wanted to keep it standing, Andrews wanted to take the fight to the ground, and in the end, I thought Hester's striking looked better, and even his wrestling seemed to be better (at least his wrestling defense did). In the end, Andrews had to quit at the end of the 2nd round, due to a dislocated shoulder.
      SHIT... I like Pat Barry a lot, so I was really hoping he would win this fight, but he was taken to the ground quickly, completely overpowered by the massive Palelei, and once Palelei was able to adjust his position, he started swinging violently, smashing Barry's face into a puddle of mud. Palelei beat the living shit out of Barry. Great win for Palelei, disappointing loss for Barry.
      Ryan Bader used his typical gorilla style of fighting, to take Perosh to the ground, and just smashed his face for 15 minutes, leaving Perosh a bloody mess by the end of the fight. Ryan Bader easily won all 3 rounds, and the judges obviously didn't dispute that fact. Great win for Ryan Bader.
      Fuck yeah! Going into this fight, I really thought Shogun was on his way down the ladder, and Te Huna was going to creep a little closer to a title shot, but James Te Huna got KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT early in the first round, with a big left hook. Shogun looked hungry in this fight, and he was swinging for the kill. Awesome win by Shogun, against a guy that I consider to be one of the current top guys at 205.
      I'm not even going to try to give any sort of play by play of this fight. It was basically 526 pounds of MONSTER FIGHTERS, smashing & bashing each other for 25 minutes. Fucking insanity all up in this shit. I scored it as a draw, and so did two judges, and one judge gave the fight to Mark Hunt, 48-47, so there you have it, it's a majority draw. Amazing fight by both fighters.
