Yves Edwards defeats Rafaello Oliveira by TKO at 2.44mins of Rd2
– This was a fairly even fight until early in the second round Edwards clipped Oliveira on the temple with a right hook which buckled his legs. Oliveira was immediately back up but on unsteady legs as Edwards fired off more shots. Oliveira isn’t giving up without a fight and swings for the fences as he tries to gather his senses, but eventually Edwards again tags Oliveira on the temple, this time with a head kick that puts him down again. Oliveira is still concious and so endures an overly long spell of unanswered blows to the head before the fight is finally stopped.
Paul Sass defeats Michael Johnson by submission (heel hook) at 3.00mins of Rd1
– Johnson was looking the clear favorite in the stand-up department in the early part of the fight, but after several failed attempts submission specialist Sass finally pulled him into his guard and after some brief scrambles put in place a heel hook attempt. At first he was struggling to get the right leverage, but eventually he was able to crank it and force the tap. This is now his fourth victory by heel hook, and in fact all but one of his 12 career wins has come by submission.
Mike Easton defeats Byron Bloodworth by TKO at 4.52mins of Rd2
– Bloodworth was never really in this fight, but it wasn’t until the second round that Easton really got to work. At first he was finding sucess with repeated left hook, right leg kick combinations, but towards the end of the round while the two were in the clinch against the cage he began to utilize knees effectively, catching Bloodworth with some glancing blows to the head before buckling him with a knee to the stomach, followed up by ground and pound for the finish.
T.J. Grant defeats Shane Roller by submission (armbar) at 2.12mins of Rd2
– This was a competitive fight throughout. The stand-up action was fairly even and the ground work closely contested to, with some fun scrambles ensuing, with Grant appearing to get the better of it. In the third round things finally came together for Grant as he went on the offensive looking for a finish, first locking in a deep guillotine attempt before smartly transitioning to an armbar. It looked like the fight was about to be over, but the referee (Mario Yamasaki’s brother Fernando) stepped in and appeared to bring it to an end prematurely, angering Roller. Replays showed he didn’t tap, but the final decision claimed he had verbally submitted. A dubious call, but still a good win for Grant.
Josh Neer defeats Keith Wisniewski by TKO (doctor stoppage) at 5.00mins of Rd2
– This was an entertaining and wince enducing stand-up battle as the two went toe-to-toe for 10 minutes. From early in the fight Neer was finding success with elbows from the thai clinch, while Wisniewski was working well to the body, appearing to damage Neer’s ribs in the process. Despite that Neer turned up the heat in the second, continually going for the clinch and unleashing brutal and largely unanswered short, cutting elbows to his opponents face. This assault began to take it’s toll and the fight had to be stopped while the doctor’s took a look at the numerous cuts Wisniewski was now sporting. A bizarre interlude then took place as officials had to go underneath the cage to retrieve Neer’s gumshield. Then the elbow assault continued until the end of the round at which point a doctor ruled that the crimson covered Wisniewski was not fit to continue.
Walel Watson defeats Joseph Sandoval by TKO at 1.17mins of Rd1
– Watson dropped his opponent early with a head kick, but credit to Sandoval who got straight back up again. He was clearly hurt though and as he reversed Watson immediately pressed forward with a flurry of straight punches that sent him back down to the mat. A brief moment of ground and pound followed as the referee stepped in to bring the fight to an end.
