Nam Phan defeats Cole Miller by split decision (29-28 x2, 28-29)
Miller tried to use his height and reach to his advantage in the stand-up action in the first round, but Phan was still able to find his way inside and was working well to the body. His best shot however was the left hook to the head which he was able to land hard three times in a short spell in the middle of the round, hurting Miller in the process and forcing him onto the back foot. Miller came into the fight more in the second round, utilizing lateral movement to stop Phan from closing in on him while picking him off with straight punches. In response Phan stepped up a gear in the final round and had Miller on wobbly legs with another hard hook. To his credit Miller came firing back and the rest of the round saw the two trading punch for punch. Phan had landed the harder shots throughout the fight though and deserved the win.
Phil Davis Vs Wagner Prado ends in a no contest (unintentional injury)
Oh dear, this one ended in the worst possible fashion with an early stoppage due to an eye poke. Davis caught Prado with his open left hand in the first round, resulting in a finger directly into his eye and a time out. A close up showed that Prado was bleeding from a slight cut just below his cut and the doctor was called in. Prado was heard to say something about seeing double and that lead to the doctor stating that the fight had to end, resulting in a no contest. Prado was distraught at this, shouting out in frustration. Really a translator was needed here as he appears to have been fit to continue. He should also have been given the full five minutes to recover, they made the call to quickly.
Rani Yahya defeats Josh Grispi by submission (north-south choke) at 3.15mins of Rd1
Good win for Yahya here, getting the early takedown on Grispi and then improving his position, finally moving to north-south position where he was able to sink in a choke and force the tap.
Phil De Fries defeats Oli Thompson by submission (rear-naked choke) at 4.16mins of Rd2
The first round wasn’t much to write how about, but De Fries stepped up a gear in the second round, first dropping Thompson with a straight right down the pipe. Thompson covered up and got back to his feet, but De Fries was in the driving seat now and it wasn’t long before he was able to get him back down to the mat. He takes the turtled up Thompson’s back, but is patient in his approach, first softening him up with punches. Then, he looks for the rear-naked choke, but rather than flattening his opponent out he just cranks it and gets the tap.
Manvel Gamburyan defeats Michihiro Omigawa by uanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
This was a fun fight with both fighters having their opponents hurt at times. Omigawa started well, dropping Gamburyan with a straight left in the opening minutes, but he bounced straight back to his feet and seemed none the worse for wear as he pressed the action for the rest of the round, landing some nice body shots and threatening with wide hooks. Omigawa started aggressively in the second round, but Gamburyan matched him and switched things up by starting to work in takedowns. He manages to get him down a couple of times, but Omigawa pops back up. He tries a third time and makes it stick, moving to Omigawa’s back, but he can’t work in a choke and moves for the mount. Omigawa threatens with a submission and that buys him time to get back to his feet. Early in the third ‘The Anvil’ had his best moment of the fight, rocking Omigawa with a head kick and then landing a series of strikes behind it. Omigawa did well to stay on his feet from that assault, and somehow survived further punishment as Gamburyan looked to mirror his earlier success with more head kicks and punches. The exertions of that slowed his pace however and Omigawa was able to bite down on his gumshield and get back into the fight in the closing minutes, landing some strikes and threatening with a standing guillotine choke. In the end Gamburyan did enough to win the fight though.
John Moraga defeats Ulysses Gomez by KO at 3.46mins of Rd1
Moraga had a clear striking advantage in this match-up and was picking apart Gomez for much of the opening round. Then came the finish, with Moraga rocking Gomez with two elbow strikes to the head before hammering in a three-piece combination of strikes as his opponent slumped to the floor unconscious.
