Jim Wallhead defeats Frank Trigg by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27)
– Very close fight to end the show. Trigg surprisingly started the fight by standing and trading rather than looking to use his wrestling, throwing leg kicks and little else. He paid the price for this later in the round when Wallhead connected with a left hook that rocked him. As Trigg fell to the canvas Wallhead pounced with ground and pound, but Trigg managed to get into guard and fend him off until the bell. The second round was close, but Trigg, who was sporting a cut on his right cheek was pushing the action just a little more and had the best moment when he pressed forward and landed a flurry of punches that cut Wallhead on the right side of his face. The fight continued to be fairly even in the final round with Wallhead appearing to briefly daze Trigg again mid-way through the round and overall doing enough to edge it despite running out of gas in the closing moments.
Paul Daley defeats Jordan Radev by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28 x2)
– Daley absolutely destroyed Radev for two rounds of this fight and yet couldn’t put him away. The Brit made excellent use of the muay thai clinch in the first and landed countless knees to the head of Radev, including one right at the bell which sent him reeling across the cage, but yet he somehow managed to keep standing. The onslaught continued in the second as Daley continued to work the clinch and bounced knees, elbows and punches off the Bulgarian’s chin, which is apparently made of concrete. In the third Daley appeared to be tiring slightly and had all but given up hope of finishing his opponent, and that gave Radev a chance to get back into the fight, taking him down and working some ground and pound to end the fight on a high. Daley was the clear winner, but all the plaudits will go to Radev for his remarkable durability.
Jack Marshman defeats Carl Noon by TKO at 2.09mins of Rd3
– Noon was all over Marshman in the opening round, taking him down and delivering a ground and pound beating that left his opponent’s face battered and bleeding. Marshman survived though and took it into the second round and things suddenly began to swing in his favor as his ‘sprawl and brawl’ style began to pay dividends against a visibily tiring Noon. As the round progressed Marshman began landing frequently and Noon gassed so badly he was beginning to put his hands on his knees at times as he tried desperately to catch his breath. By the third round he looked like he wanted not further part in the contest yet he staggered out anyway and continued to take punishment before appearing to fall to the canvas. Marshman appeared reluctant to put him out of his misery with a submission and so worked him over with ground and pound for some time before the referee finally brought an end to the bout. In all honesty this was a very sloppy fight, but credit to Marshman for coming back to win.
Andre Winner defeats Jason Ball by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
– Comfortable victory for Winner here, outpointing Ball in the striking game throughout the 15 minutes. After suffering a few losses in the UFC before this fight Winner was clearly just keen to get a ‘W’ on his record and didn’t take any chances or go all out to get a finish. Ball finally secured a takedown late in the third round, but was then reversed and paid the price as Winner landed some ground and pound and opened up a cut above his right eye.
Rob Sinclair defeats Leonardo Santos by TKO at 3.00mins of Rd3
– Good win for Sinclair here as he successfully defended his lightweight title. Santos started out brightly and even had Sinclair down early. The momentum of the fight quickly shifted though after sinclair landed a big elbow in close against the fence though which seemed to take the wind out of Santos sails. Given that the Brazilian only had 24hrs notice that was understandable and he quickly began to look tired and toiled his way through the next couple of rounds as Sinclair worked him over, ripping to the body with good effect on numerous occasions. Midway through the third he backed up and then came upstairs with an uppercut that floored Santos and ended the fight.
Dale Hardiman defeats Scott Jansen by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.16mins of Rd2
– Jansen appeared to have the edge in the stand-up early with Hardiman looking a little tentative, but it then became clear he was just biding his time as he successfully secured the first of what would eventually be a number of takedowns in the bout. Jansen’s looked vulnerable on the ground, and Hardiman capitalized early in the second round, taking his back and sinking in the choke.
