Ben Henderson defeats Brandon Thatch by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.58mins of Rd4
Max Holloway defeats Cole Miller by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)
Neil Magny defeats Kiichi Kunimoto by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.22mins of Rd3
Daniel Kelly defeats Patrick Walsh by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28 x2)
In all honesty this was a fairly sloppy striking battle with Walsh being the more aggressive, but lacking technique and leaving himself open to counters which Walsh was able to take advantage of despite his own limited offensive arsenal. Not a fight that had any business being on the main card.
Kevin Lee defeats Michel Prazeres by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
Cardio was an important factor in this fight with Prazeres cutting a powerful, imposing presence in the first round, but then wilting as the fight progressed, which Lee was able to take advantage. He ramped up the pressure and started to land both strikes and takedowns with relative ease, helping him on his way to a win on the scorecards.
Ray Borg defeats Chris Kelades by submission (kimura) at 2.56mins of Rd3
Borg absolutely dominated Kelades on the mat here with his slick, technical yet powerful grappling. To his credit Kelades managed to survive a few submission attempts along the way, but he just couldn’t get Borg off of him. Borg could have settled for a convincing win on the scorecards, but instead he went all in on a kimura attempt mid-way through the round and forced the tapout.
Efrain Escudero defeats Rodrigo Lima by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Good performance from Escudero here as he found Lima’s head with strikes with alarming ease on the feet and also proved to have effective ground and pound too. Lima ate a lot of big shots over the course of the fight, but despite appearing rocked at times he showed a lot of good chin to last out until the final bell.
Chas Skelly defeats Jim Alers by TKO at 4.59mins of Rd2
Skelly looked to be burning himself out with repeated unsuccessful takedowns against the cage in the second round of this fight, but just as they looked to be heading to a third round things suddenly began to heat up in a hurry with Skelly eating a punch, but landing a couple of his own in return that took some of the wind out of Alers sails. Skelly backed him up against the cage with more punches and then really started to unleash as Alers covered up. Finally Alers slowly sunk to the mat and was met by a knee to the face on the way down which brought an end to the fight with just one second of the round remaining. Replays showed that one of Alers knees was on the mat at the point of contact making it an illegal blow, but nonetheless Skelly is still awarded the win.
Zach Makovsky defeats Tim Elliott by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
Elliott was typically energetic and aggressive from the opening bell, but Makovsky stayed cool, calm and collected under pressure and was able to counter reasonably well, while really making his impression felt with periods of control on the mat and also shrugging off Elliott’s submission attempts.
James Moontasri defeats Cody Pfister by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.49mins of Rd2
Moontasri completely dominated the striking exchanges in the opening round, appearing to hurt Pfister a few times before taking him to the mat early in the second and producing the rear-naked choke finish.
