Lyoto Machida defeats C.B. Dollaway by TKO at 1.02mins of Rd1
Renan Barao defeats Mitch Gagnon by submission (arm triangle choke) at 3.53mins of Rd3
Patrick Cummins defeats Antonio Carlos Junior by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Rashid Magomedov defeats Elias Silverio by TKO at 4.57mins of Rd3
For much of this fight Magomedov had the edge in the striking battle showing off hard kicks, accurate punches and effective counters. However, it wasn’t until the final minute of the fight that he really stepped up a gear, dropping Silverio with a left hook and then swarming on him looking for the finish. Silverio got to his feet, but was still on unsteady legs and lurched across the Octagon with Magomedov in hot pursuit. A barrage of strikes followed and with just three seconds remaining the ref decided he’d seen enough and handed Magomedov the TKO victory.
Erick Silva defeats Mike Rhodes by submission (arm triangle choke) at 1.15mins of Rd1
A;ways a man in pursuit of a quick finish, Silva wasted little time in taking Rhodes down here, passed his guard and swiftly applied an arm triangle choke submission to force the tap.
Daniel Sarafian defeats Antonio dos Santos Jr. by TKO (injury) at 1.01mins of Rd2
This was a full-blooded scrap with both men swinging for the fences in the opening round and eating heavy shots in the process. Unfortunately in the second round things unexpectedly ground to a halt when during another aggressive exchange in close Dos Santos Jr dislocated a finger. He motioned for the fight to be stopped for a moment while he quickly popped the finger back into place. Unfortunately the referee reacts to Dos Santos Jr’s motioning as a sign to end the fight, and that means the bout ends there and then with Sarafian being handed the TKO win. Frustrating, but the ref was right here – a fighter can’t just ask for the action to be paused like that.
Marcos Rogerio de Lima defeats Igor Pokrajac by TKO at 1.59mins of Rd1
These two went toe-to-toe early and it was De Lima who came out on top, catching Pojrajac with a right hand as he pressed forward, then landing further shots including two hard left hooks that dropped him followed by a few on the mat to seal the deal.
Renato Carneiro defeats Tom Niinimaki by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.30mins of Rd2
Great performance from Carneiro, getting the better of Niinimaki in the first round with rangey strikes, and continuing with more of the same in the second. Eventualy a clipping punch wobbled Niinimaki and allowed Carneiro to secure a takedown and then neatly moved to his back and sunk in the rear-naked choke.
Hacran Dias defeats Darren Elkins by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
Dias was able to take down and control Elkins on the mat for large spells of this 15 minute encounter to pick up a relatively comfortable unanimous decision win.
Leandro Issa defeats Yuta Sasaki by submission (neck crank) at 4.13mins of Rd2
A fun ground battle for the most part here with Issa looking for control on top while Sasaki was doing his best to work for submission attempts. Sasaki threatened with a choke from his back in the second round, but Issa escaped, got into mount and then took Sasaki’s back where he was able to sink in a neck crank, putting his opponent in enough pain that he was forced to tap.
Tim Means defeats Marcio Alexandre Jr. by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
Means consistently pushed the pace in this fight while Alexandre Jr was often working from the back-foot, frustrating his opponent in the process. As the fight progressed Means gradually gained more momentum from his forward pressure and Alexandre Jr started to fade, particularly in the third by which time he was wearing a lot of damage to the face which helped Means to the split decision victory.
Vitor Miranda defeats Jake Collier by TKO at 4:59mins of Rd1
Miranda starts the night off in a big way! Collier outwrestled him for much of the opening five minutes, but managed to get back to his feet late in the round and then rocked Collier with a kick to the head. Miranda then teed off with strikes and floored him with a left hand for the TKO finish just one second away from the bell.
