Evan Dunham defeats Nik Lentz by TKO (doctor stoppage) at 5.00mins of Rd2
This was a great back-and-forth fight for as long as it lasted. Lentz really impressed in the opening round with his new aggressive style, taking the fight to Dunham and both outstriking him at times, and successfully completing a number of takedowns too. Dunham was struggling a little to find his own rhythm, though he did a good job of getting back to his feet several times and was just about hanging in on the stand-up exchanges. In round two it was Dunham who initially scored with the takedown, but before they were back standing and they both began to ramp up their striking. Dunham was finally coming to life and he got the better of a frantic toe-to-toe exchange, opening up a cut under Lentz’s left eye. To his credit Lentz continued to press forward, but Dunham was getting the edge now and scored with both a takedown and another hard punch to the face on the feet before the bell sounded. Lentz is bleeding heavily from facial wounds and the cut beneath his eye looks terrible, and after some deliberation it’s deemed that he’s not fit to continue, handing Dunham the TKO victory.
Mike Russow defeats John-Olav Einemo by unanimous decision (29-28×2, 29-27)
Russow took Einemo down repeatedly in this fight and stayed just busy enough to keep the referee from standing them back up. Einemo tried to use his submission skills, but rarely looked like getting anything going from his back and gassed out in the later rounds. Russow too looked weary in the third round and was happy to just to ride the rest of the fight out from top control to earn the decision victory.
Cub Swanson Defeats George Roop by TKO at 2.22mins Of Rd2
The first round between these two was competitive, but the real action came in the second round when Swanson landed a thunderous right hand that sent Roop’s mouthpiece flying out of his mouth before ricocheting back of the fence. Somehow Roop was still conscious, but a few more punches from Swanson on the ground sealed the deal.
Charles Oliveira defeats Eric Wisely by submission (calf slicer) at 1.43mins of Rd1
Oliveira marked his featherweight debut tonight with a quick and crafty submission win over Wisely. Oliviera was stalking Wisely from the start and caught an early leg kick and used it to put his opponent flat on his back. Remaining standing Oliveira looked to control Wisely’s legs while throwing down some blows to his head. He then switched things up and looked for a heel hook. At first it appeared as if Wisely had rolled out from it, but Oliveira wasn’t done with him yet and managed to lock the leg with both of his own to apply a calf slicer which left Wisely wincing in pain and forced the tap.
Michael Johnson defeats Shane Roller by decision (29-28 x3)
In the opening round Johnson proved himself to be the quicker, more light-footed fighter and used that to his advantage in the striking battle. He also showed excellent takedown defense as Roller tried numerous times to take the fight to the mat without succeeding. A flying knee that connected to Roller’s head in the final seconds also helped Johnson’s cause. In the second the action was closer, but again Johnson looked to be getting the better of the action. Things changed in the third when Roller finally executed the takedown he had been after all fight long and quickly took Johnson’s back and flattened him out. He began raining down blows, but a number of them were flying dangerously close to the back of his head forcing the referee to warn Roller to keep it clean. That slowed his momentum a little and he changed strategy, rolling Johnson over and attempting a rear-naked choke which he failed to lock in. In the dying moments of the round Johnson escaped back to his feet and the two slugged it out for the remaining seconds.
Lavar Johnson defeats Joey Beltran by KO at 4.24mins of Rd1
Strikeforce product Johnson marked his debut in the UFC in impressive fashion by becoming the first man to KO Beltran. He got off to the perfect start when he dropped Johnson with a vicious body punch in the first real exchange of the fight. Beltran got back up, but never looked the same afterwards. Johnson pushed the pace and his reach allowed him to land frequently while Beltran’s own blows consistently fell short of the mark. Towards the end of the round Johnson got Beltran up against the cage and began unleashing a brutal series of uppercuts to the chin and right hooks to the temple which knocked Beltran out on his feet, causing him to slump face first onto the mat.
Chris Camozzi defeats Dustin Jacoby via submission (guillotine choke) at 1:08mins of Rd3
