Dennis Bermudez defeats Tom Hayden by submission (standing guillotine choke) at 4.23mins of Rd1
This was a fun back-and-forth fight for as long as it lasted. Bermudez got dropped by a knee from Hayden mid-way through the opening round and then had to contend with his opponent taking his back and looking for the choke. Bermudez survived though and when Hayden changed things up with an armbar he hoisted him up and slammed him to the mat in order to break free. Bermudez then started to turn the screw, and after landing a nice front kick he then seized Hayden’s neck as he ducked down for a takedown attempt. Bermudez then stood him up and tightened up the guillotine choke to force the tapout.
Michael Kuiper defeats Jared Hamman by TKO at 2.16mins of Rd2
I’ve got to say I found this one a bit tough to watch as Hamman was taking a beating. Kuiper had him on shaky legs a couple of times in round one with punches and he took a lot of clean shots, while to make matters worse he also hurt his leg badly with a kick which left him limping back to his corner at the end of the round complaining of a torn muscle. He limped back out for the second and started taking more shots. To his credit he always tried to fight back and did land some strikes of his own in both rounds, but due to his leg there was no power in them. It seemed only a matter of time before he was finished, and indeed that proved to be the case half way through the second as Kuiper landed a right hand that dropped him to the canvas. Hamman is the type of fighter that seems almost too tough for his own good and he has to watch what he’s doing or he’ll pay a price for that in the longer term.
Erik Perez defeats Ken Stone by TKO at 0.17mins of Rd1
In the first big exchange on the feet Perez caught Stone flush to the jaw with a big right hook that sent him falling face first to the canvas. Stone wasn’t out yet though and so Perez pounced on him with a series of rights and lefts on the mat. It looked like Stone was KO’d and referee Herb Dean jumped in and brought an end to the contest, just as Stone somehow managed to rise up and reverse the position. Stone didn’t complain though and it looked to be a good stoppage to me.
Chico Camus defeats Dustin Pague by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
This was a competitive 15 minutes of fighting, but Camus rightly emerged as the winner due to long spells of control on the mat and a higher volume of punches in his favor. Pague had his moments – most notably a triangle choke attempt in the first and taking his opponents back early in the third, but he couldn’t find a finish and it wouldn’t prove to be enough to earn him the victory on the judges scorecards.
Nik Lentz defeats Eiji Mitsuoka by TKO at 3.45mins of Rd1
Lentz made his featherweight debut in some style here. He was all over Mitsuoka from the start and after scoring several takedowns he was able to take his back and hammer away with ground and pound until the referee brought an end to the contest.
