Julianna Pena defeats Jessica Eye by unanimous decision (29-27 x3)
Yair Rodriguez defeats Daniel Hooker by unanimous decision (30-37 x2, 30-26)
Another fun-to-watch performance from Rodriguez, showing fluidity, creativity and aggression with varied arsenal of striking techniques throughout the fight which caused the more orthodox Hooker plenty of issues. Even in the third round when Hooker managed to get Rodriguez to the mat he still ended up causing him problems with submission attempts and strikes from his back as he made his way to a clear decision victory.
Albert Tumenov defeats Alan Jouban by TKO at 2.55mins of Rd1
Tumenov clearly had the striking advantage here and really displayed it during the fight-ending sequence, first appearing to rock Jouban with a right head kick despite it being partially blocked, then putting together a combination of punches ending with a hard left hook to the jaw, sending the Brazilian face first to the mat. Good stuff from Tumenov and a rightful stoppage even though Jouban didn’t like it. He staggers unsteadily around the cage saying he was fit to continue, but clearly he absolutely wasn’t.
Adriano Martins defeats Islam Makhachev by KO at 1.46mins of Rd1
This one was over in a flash with Machachev first swinging a winging left hook that missed, leaving him exposed as Martins did the same in return with a right hand and found a clean connection, dropping him very hard to the mat. Martins looked to follow it up, but the ref had already seen enough and rushed in to end the fight.
Rose Namajunas defeats Angela Hill by submission (rear-naked choke) at 2.47mins of Rd1
Nice first round win for Namajunas here. The opening salvos on the feet were even between these two, but then ‘Thug’ landed a solid strike and slickly followed it up with a trip takedown. She was able to switch to Hill’s back at which point Hill tried to stand and Namajunas simply hopped onto her back and sunk in the rear-naked choke. Hill staggered towards the cage and battled on as long as she could, but in the end was essentially choked unconscious on her feet.
Sage Northcutt defeats Frank Trevino by TKO at 0.57mins of Rd1
The 19 year-old Northcutt lives up to the hype and gets his UFC career off to a flying start with a 57 seconds win over Trevino. Trevino slipped on an early kick attempt which Northcutt immediately capitalized on, cuffing him with a few punches as he got back upright, then followed that up with a rapid barrage of blows as Trevino backed up to the cage. Just as quickly Northcutt swooped in with a smooth takedown and immediately unleashed hard elbows to the head of Trevino who seemed a little dazed. Northcutt switched to punches, but barely got a chance to get going before the ref ended the fight. So, Northcutt gets a big TKO win, but Trevino is furious and thinks the fight should have continued.
Sergio Pettis defeats Chris Cariaso by unanimous decision (29-27 x2, 29-28)
Pettis gets back to winning ways and for the first ten minutes he was in control of the fight. He managed to tak Cariaso down early in the first, and as the round progressed he also began establishing his superior striking leading to a well timed right hand that dropped his opponent. There was more of the same in the second round with Pettis looking assured on the feet and staying in control on the mat. However, the tables turned in the third round with Cariaso getting on top and getting the better of Pettis from top position and even threatening to finish him with a late heel hook attempt, but the clock beat him and Pettis gets the win.
Derrick Lewis defeats Viktor Pesta by TKO at 1.15mins of Rd3
For the best part of two rounds Lewis wasn’t in this fight at all as Pesta took him down repeatedly on controlled him on the mat. However in the final minute of the second round Lewis turned the tables, catching Pest with an uppercut and then getting him to the mat where he launched hard ground and pound. Pesta ate some shots and looked dazed as he went back to his corner in-between rounds. He still hadn’t fully recovered going into the final five minutes and a sloppy takedown attempt allowed Lewis to sprawl, get on top and land more ground and pound shots. Then he was able to achieve full mount and landed the fight-ending blows.
