Jake Ellenberger defeats Diego Sanchez by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
Stefan Struve defeats Dave Herman by TKO at 3.52mins of Rd2
Ronny Markes defeats Aaron Simpson by split decision (29-28 x2, 28-29)
Both fighters had their moments in this close fight. Markes started the striking battle stronger in the first round, but the tables turned when Simpson crashed an uppercut to his chin that had him rocked. Simpson followed him to the ground and landed a barrage of strikes, but couldn’t put him away. Markes recovered from that in the second round with a solid round of striking, with his leg kicks in particular proving effective. It was hard to split the two for much of the third and final round until the closing stages when Markes scored a takedown that may just have helped swing the entire fight in his favor.
Stipe Miocic defeats Philip De Fries by KO at 0.43mins Of Rd1
This one was over fast as both men traded big blows in the opening minute of the round. It was De Fries who landed first, clocking Miocic on the chin cleanly a couple of times before being countered with a straight right that rapidly sent him into reverse gear. Miocic chased him down with more strikes across the Octagon before landing a shot to the temple which crumpled De Fries down to the canvas. A few more strikes followed on the ground and it was all over.
T.J. Dillashaw defeats Walel Watson by unanimous decision (30-25 x2, 30-26)
Strong performance from TUF 14 finalist Dillashaw here. It was his superior grappling ability that was the difference here, allowing him to control Watson on the mat and keep his long limbs, which were constantly seeking submission opportunities, at bay. Watson managed to survive multiple rear-naked choke attempts and a lot of ground and pound over the course of three rounds, but he was on defense for practically the whole fight and the judges scorecards reflected that.
Ivan Menjivar defeats John Albert by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.45mins of Rd1
Great back-and-forth action here. Menjivar did a nice job of getting Albert to the floor early, but fighting off his back didn’t stifle his opponent’s offense as Albert began to throw up multiple omaplata attempts and even a heel hook at one stage. Menjivar did a nice job of defending though and also managed to land some heavy blows when the opportunity presented itself. Back on the feet Albert looked to have Menjivar in real trouble after landing some punches and following up with a head kick that just grazes him, but leaves him momentarily stunned. Albert blasts away with more punches and some solid knees which crumples Menjivar to the mat though he struggles back to his feet. Then albert makes a crucial mistake and instead of continuing with his offensive striking which is clearly working he opts to leap up into a guillotine choke. Menjivar slips out however and Albert drops to the floor. Menjivar then gets his back, sinks in the rear-naked choke and forces the tap for a great come-from-behind victory.
Jonathan Brookins defeats Vagner Rocha by KO at 1.32mins of Rd1
Brookins reversed a takedown attempt early in the fight and instantly made Rocha pay for it by unleashing a flurry of right hands that KO’d him.
Buddy Roberts vs. Sean Loeffler cancelled due to pre-fight injury
An ankle injury picked up by Loeffler pre-fight has resulted in this prelim being cancelled at short notice.
Justin Salas defeats Anton Kuivanen by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-27)
Salas came on strong in the later rounds of this fight, particularly the third as he began to get the better of the action on both the feet and on the mat to produce a solid win over Kuivanen.
Tim Means defeats Bernardo Magalhaes by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26 x2)
Means gave Magalhaes a beatdown over three rounds here with knees and body strikes being his main weapons of choice, leaving his opponent with a couple of different cuts on his head and pretty much just doing little other than surviving by the final round.
