John Dodson defeats John Moraga by TKO (Doctor’s stoppage) at 5.00mins of Rd2
Rafael dos Anjos defeats Jason High by TKO at 3.36mins of Rd2
Good, competitive fight here with High starting off well with his wrestling and takedowns, but dos Anjos wasn’t phased by it, and by the end of the first round it was he who was landing a takedown and enjoying a spell on top. Dos Anjos pushed a hard pace in the second round, landing some good strikes and scoring takedowns. The pressure paid off for him in the second half of the round as he connected with a flush left that dropped High, then rained down ground and pound until the referee called an end to the fight.
Piotr Hallmann defeats Yves Edwards by submission (Rear-naked choke) at 2.31mins of Rd3
Good performance from Hallman tonight, using his wrestling to control Edwards and gradually wear him down to the point where in the third round he was able to take his back and sink in the choke and force a quick tap-out from the exhausted veteran.
Bryan Caraway defeats Erik Perez by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.52mins of Rd2
Perez gave Caraway problems on the feet tonight with his crisp striking, but Caraway was equally making life difficult for him with his wrestling. In the end it was Caraway’s persisent attempts to get the fight to the mat that paid dividends as he managed to take Perez’s back mid-way through the second round, slip in the rear-naked choke and then switch to a gable grip to secure the hold and force the tap.
Sergio Pettis defeats Yaotzin Meza by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
A cautious stand-up fight for the most part here, but Pettis looked the brighter of the two and had the biggest impact when a head kick landed and had Meza hurt and hitting reverse gear in the second round. Meza never let his hands go, and though he did land a takedown late in the third round it proved to be too little, too late.
Lance Benoist defeats Bobby Voelker by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
Coming off a long layoff, Benoist’s striking looked good in the early stages, though Voelker’s chin was holding out well. Benoist had to dig deep later on as fatigue started to set in, but luckily for him his opponent was also tiring and a crucial takedown in the third round helped ensure that the momentum of the fight was swinging in Benoist’s favor and helped earn him a decision victory.
Scott Jorgensen defeats Danny Martinez by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
Martinez managed to hurt Jorgensen badly in the first round with strikes, and had him wobbled again in the third, but he just couldn’t find a way to finish him. Jorgensen showed great heart to fight back from those precarious positions and used his wrestling to gain an upperhand for much of the rest of the fifteen minute encounter with multiple takedowns landed and periods of control on the mat to earn a decision victory.
Jon Tuck defeats Jake Lindsey by submission (tapout due to strikes) at 2.47mins of Rd3
Tuck had Lindsey rocked with a punch behind the ear in the first round, but Lindsey showed good powers of recovery and it wasn’t until the final round that Tuck was able to find a way to finish the fight. He took his opponent down, got his back and was hoping to work in a rear-naked choke, but while doing so he was landing heel kicks to his opponents body, and somewhat surprisingly that lead to the tapout.
Patrick Cummins defeats Roger Narvaez by TKO at 2.28mins of Rd2
Cummins gets his first win in the UFC at the second attempt. The damage was done in the second round as he took Narvaez down early and started drilling him with shots, before rocking him with elbows as he tried to stand back up. More punches rain down and forced Narvaez to just cover up offering no resistance and so the ref moved in to the stop the fight.
