Neil Magny defeats William Macario by TKO at 2.40mins of Rd3
While the two men initially started trading blows on the feet, Magny eventually realized that the key to this fight was to take Macario to the mat. In the latter stages of the second round he had Macario down and landed some hard ground and pound, then in the third he again got on top and this time as he started to unload strikes Macario began to wilt and it wasn’t long before the referee stopped the fight.
Yan Cabral defeats Naoyuki Kotani by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.06mins of Rd1
It’s been a night of submissions so far and Cabral continued the trend, dragging Kotani to the mat and sinking in a rear-naked choke mid-way through the first round to earn a victory in his 155lb debut.
Wilson Reis defeats Scott Jorgensen by submission (arm triangle) at 3.28mins of Rd1
Jorgensen got off to a good start in this fight with an early knockdown of Reis, but the Brazilian bounced back quickly from that early set-back and then turned the tables on his opponent as the round progressed, landing a very hard body kick that clearly took the wind out of Jorgensen’s sails. Reis took advantage, getting him to the ground, landing some punches to the head and then moving for an arm triangle finish. Jorgensen was still recovering from the body blow and though he tried to hang on in there, it wasn’t long before he reluctantly had to tap.
Andre Fili defeats Felipe Arantes by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
This was an entertaining fight that ebbed and flowed on the feet and especially on the mat for the full 15 minutes, but overall Fili was the livelier of the two and he earns the unanimous decision victory.
Gilbert Burns defeats Christos Giagos by submission (armbar) at 4.57mins of Rd1
Some slick ground work on display from Burns here showing some nice scrambles and transitions before in the dying seconds of the round locking in the armbar submission to earn a slick finish.
Tony Martin defeats Fabricio Camoes by submission (kimura) at 4.16mins of Rd1
Martin did well here, getting Camoes to the mat early in the fight and then seizing on a kimura attempt and working on it until his opponent was forced to tap.
