Jorge Rivera defeats Eric Schafer by TKO at 1.31mins of Rd2
Rivera bowed out of his MMA career on a high with this TKO win over Schafer. Things didn’t start well for the veteran with Schafer taking him down and outwrestling him on the ground for much of the first round. Rivera showed he wasn’t completely out of his depth however by managing to sweep Schafer a couple of times. In the second Rivera imposed his will, escaping a takedown attempt from his opponent and then making him pay before he could get back to his feet with some big shots to the head opening up a cut. Rivera continued to pour on the pressure and he clearly still has the power in his hands as Schafer was soon wilting under the blows, turtling up before finally the referee stepped in to end the contest with 1.31mins of the second round gone.
Khabib Nurmagomedov defeats Kamal Shalorus by submission (rear-naked choke) at 2.08mins of Rd3
Very impressive debut from Nurmagomedov. What was most surprising in this fight was how he continually got the better of Shalorus in the wrestling department, both offensively and defensively which no-one else has been able to do. Nurmagomedov was also doing well in the stand-up, with his most notable moment coming in the first after he took a solid blow to the midriff from Shalorus, then shot for the takedown before rising back up and throwing an uppercut that dropped the Iranian fighter. Shalorus has proven in the past that he’s got a hell of a chin though and he survived both that and the onslaught of ground and pound that followed. He never really got back into the fight after that though, and even appeared confused as to which round it was heading into the third. That was an ominous sign and Nurmagomedov wasn’t about to let him off lightly, again getting him on the mat in the final round and getting the finish via rear-naked choke.
Charlie Brenneman defeats Daniel Roberts by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
A dominant display here from Brenneman, using his wrestling to control Roberts through all three rounds. He wasn’t able to get a finish though despite catching Roberts in the crucifix position on several occasions. For his part Roberts was unable to work much from his back aside from a submission chain late in the second, going from an initial kimura to an inverted armbar and finally an attempted triangle choke before the bell sounded.
Fabricio Camoes defeats Tommy Hayden by submission (rear-naked choke) at 4.03mins of Rd1
Hayden started the fight strongly, getting the better of the stand-up exchanges and also appearing confident tackling Camoes on the ground too. That proved to be a mistake though as Camoes is a high level BJJ player and after a slow start he finally got into gear off his back, attempting an omaplata submission. Hayden stood up out of it, but Camoes cleverly used an ankle pick to bring him immediately back down on his back. From their it was all Camoes as he worked ground and pound before working to Hayden’s back and sinking the choke. It looked as if Hayden half-heartedly tapped a couple of time, but the referee didn’t acknoweldge it and so Camoes just held on until a more definitive tap eventually came.
Daniel Pineda defeats Pat Schilling by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.37mins of Rd1
Another quick finish here. Pineda pressed forward from the opening bell and got a body lock on Schilling, using a trip to get him to the mat then equally swiftly moved to full mount to begin delivering some strikes. Then he took Schilling’s back and softened him up with more heavy blows. Schilling was wilting already but struggled to his feet. Pineda was still firmly attached to his back though and began to cinch up a rear-naked choke which forced Schilling back down the canvas and soone after produced the tapout.
Nick Denis defeats Joseph Sandoval by KO at 0.22mins of Rd1
A ‘wow’ moment to start the evening. Denis locked into the clinch almost immediately and proceeded to throw a series of elbows to the side of Sandoval’s head behind the ear, knocking him out. Elbows aren’t known to knock out fighters very often so this was equal parts surprising and impressive from the debuting Denis.
