T.J. Grant defeats Matt Wiman by KO at 4.51mins of Rd1
Grant is really coming into his own as a fighter and proved it tonight with a surprisingly comfortable win over a tough opponent in Wiman. Muay Thai was the key to Grant’s victory, making good use of the clinch and also landing solid knees and particularly nasty elbows that first rocked Wiman and then later dropped him, with ground and pound strikes following to seal the KO stoppage.
Clay Guida defeats Hatsu Hioki by split decision (30-27, 28-29, 29-28)
Guida picks up a win in his featherweight debut, but only by a narrow margin. In the striking department it was the rangier Hioki who was more effective and that forced Guida into grinding out the win on the mat. That was easier said than done though as Hioki was very crafty and technical off his back and was consistently finding ways to put his opponent under threat with submissions or keep him off-balance enough that Guida wasn’t able to offer much in the way of offense himself. In fact there’s a real case to be made for Hioki actually doing enough from his back to win some of these rounds, but as is so often the case the judges favored the man on top and Guida sneaks a split decision win.
Pascal Krauss defeats Mike Stumpf by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Krauss simply outclassed Stumpf on the feet in this one, showing good technique as he pieced together a high volume output of efficient punches and kicks over the course of fifteen minutes to earn the decision victory.
Ryan Bader defeats Vladimir Matyushenko by submission (head and arm choke) at 0.50mins of Rd1
Wow, Bader wasted no time here. Pretty much his first punch of the fight dropped Matyushenko, though he got straight up. Unfortunately for ‘The Janitor’, Bader immediately locked in a head and arm choke and dropped to the mat with it. It was an unusual position for this kind of choke, but Bader made it work by using Matyushenko’s leg for leverage and cranking hard to produce the tap.
Shawn Jordan defeats Mike Russow by TKO at 3.48mins of Rd2
Jordan took a beating from Russow in the stand-up department during the opening round that left him with multiple cuts to his face and close to being stopped, but he survived. Russow had expended a lot of effort during that five minute period and was holding his knees and looking tired at the end of it. That must have given Jordan confidence and he came out with purpose in the second round and started to take the fight to his opponent. That paid dividends for him as he was able to land some hands and back Russow up for the first time in the fight before securing a takedown and getting to mount position. Russow gives up his back momentarily as he tries to escape, then goes for a leg lock which enables him to break free of the position and get back upright. Up against the cage Russow lands a nice knee, but then Jordan gets another takedown and lands some hard elbows, one of which seems to have really hurt Russow who gives up his back again. Jordan starts raining down blows and Russow covers up and appears to have had enough, forcing the referee to step in and bring the fight to an end.
Rafael Natal defeats Shawn Spencer by submission (arm triangle choke) at 2.13mins of Rd3
Spencer was competitive on the feet in this fight, but Natal proved to be too much for him on the ground. At the end of the second round he was close to being stopped by a rear-naked choke, but managed to hang on until the bell. However, there was no such saving grace in the third as Natal took him down and attempted an Americana submission before switching to an arm triangle and locking it up tight.
David Mitchell defeats Simeon Thoresen by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Mitchell managed to outstrike Thoresen for the first two rounds of this fight, leaving his face bloodied and his left eye swollen shut. When the fight occasionally hit the mat Mitchell also looked to get creative with submission attempts, even attempting a Gogoplata at one stage without success. Prior to the final round a doctor checked Thoresen’s eye, but let him continue and he went on to have a better round, starting to land significant punches of his own. The fight then hit the deck, but despite Thoresen having top position he wasn’t able to make good use of it due to Mitchell first threatening with a triangle choke and then landing good shots to the face despite being on his back. That made it a closer round to score, but in the end the judges award Mitchell a clean sweep on the scorecard.
