Chad Mendes defeats Yaotzin Meza by KO at 1.55mins of Rd1
Meza took this fight at extremely short notice and paid the price, falling victim to a nasty KO at the hands of Mendes. It was a huge right hand that dropped Meza with three follow-up punches on the ground completing the KO.
Joey Beltran defeats Igor Pokrajac by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Beltran used the clinch game effectively in this fight, smothering Pokrajac up against the cage for significant periods of the fight punctuated with rapid-fire short shots. He hits Pokrajac with dozens of punches over the course of 15 minutes, yet the Croatian ate them and looked unphased. On the other hand, when Pokrajac really let his hands go he looked dangerous. At one stage late in the first round Beltran was hammering him with a sustained assault of meaty shots to the body against the cage. Pokrajac took them and then with just one uppercut he had Beltran toppling forward to the mat, though he recovered quickly. Pokrajac got more aggressive in the third round and again threatened at times with punches, but it was too little too late and Beltran gets the win.
Mike Pierce defeats Seth Baczynski by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28 x2)
Pierce completely dominated this fight with his superior wrestling, putting Baczynski on his back multiple times and keeping him there for extended periods. Bacznyski had little time to work on the feet, but did start to lay some strikes together at one stage in the second round only for Pierce to close the distance and land some dirty boxing uppercuts which buckled Baczynski’s legs, though he quickly got back upright. Early in the third Baczynski was again doing good work with strikes, making good use of his height to land knees to his opponent’s head, but Pierce nullified that with another takedown and rode out the rest of the round to claim the decision win.
Ben Alloway defeats Manuel Rodriguez by KO at 4.57mins of Rd1
This fight was crazy for more than one reason. Firstly because the referee almost made one of the worst blunders in UFC officiating history when he failed to see a groin strike delivered by Alloway on Rodriguez, and upon seeing the fighter dropping to the floor in agony he waved his hands and called an end to the fight. When Rodriguez explained it was a groin strike the ref looked shellshocked, but thankfully asked to speak to an official who said he could let the fight continue. And they did that just that. Rodriguez might wish they hadn’t though as with just 10 seconds of the round to go he ducked head-first into a front kick from Alloway that sent him crashing to the cavas. Alloway blasted him with punches on the mat to complete the KO with 4.57mins on the clock. I say again – crazy!
Mike Wilkinson defeats Brendan Loughnane by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
This was a close, competitive, and by the end bloody fight between these two TUF competitors. Throughout the fight Wilkinson attempted to take the fight to his opponent, pressing forward whenever possible, but Loughnane did a nice job of utilizing inside leg kicks, landing regularly while also occasionally going upstairs with kicks to the head and the occasional knee. Wilkinson scored an important takedown in the first though, and while he landed less strikes over 15 minute he did connect with some very solid shots. In the final minutes of the third round Loughnane floored Wilkinson who then managed to get back to his feet and rallied well, trading blows toe-to-toe in the final seconds. Overall it could have gone either way, but it’s Wilkinson who gets the nod.
Cody Donovan defeats Nick Penner by TKO at 4.35mins of Rd1
Technical issue on our end so missed most of the opening fight, but we’re up and running now. Donovan finished the fight with a left hook that dropped Penner followed up with ground and pound to finish.
