Khabib Nurmagomedov defeats Rafael dos Anjos by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Nurmagomedov’s dominant run in the lightweight division continued tonight as he defeated the No.5 ranked contender dos Anjos with another grappling clinic, landing repeated takedowns and demonstrating stifling control on the mat while also getting the better of the stand-up action. Surely a future title contender in the making here.
Thiago Alves defeats Seth Baczynski by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Despite two years out of the Octagon and being at a distinct size and reach disadvantage, Alves fought very well tonight, outstriking Baczynski for the full 15 minutes. Baczynski showed toughness, but endured a lot of heavy leg kicks and cuts to both eyes as he ate repeated kicks and punches. Alves was showing some damage too, with a lump above his right eye and a bloodied nose, but it was still a strong showing from here with no real signs of ring rust.
Jorge Masvidal defeats Pat Healy by unanimous decision (30-27 x2, 29-28)
Masvidal showed first class takedown defense tonight, stuffing virtually all of Healy’s repeated takedowns over the course of three rounds. He also won the striking exchanges, tagging Healy while displaying good defense and even managed to land a takedown of his own late in the third, en-route to a decision win.
Alex White defeats Estevan Payan by TKO at 1.28mins of Rd1
Another fast fight here with White pouring on the pressure early, missing with a spinning back fist, but continuing to press forward and landing a left hand to the chin that dropped Payan. With Payan still dazed on the mat White was able to uncork a flurry of unanswered right hands and that was enough for the ref to call an end to the fight. Payan got back up straight away and protested, but he hadn’t been intelligently defending himself.
Caio Magalhaes defeats Luke Zachrich by TKO at 0.44mins of Rd1
Quick finish from Magalhaes here after getting straight down to business in the stand-up. Body shots were the key here, landing a good body shot followed by a right hook that hurt Zachrich and send him staggering backwards. Magalhaes followed up with a well placed, powerful knee to the midsection that folded Zachrich to the mat and then unleashed ground and pound for the finish with less than a minute gone of the opening round.
Jordan Mein defeats Hernani Perpetuo by split decision (29-28, 28-29)
Mein looked brighter and more comfortable in the striking exchanges early in the first round and then landed a takedown. He picked some good ground and pound shots to the body before Perpetuo produced a nice escape to get back upright. From there he was met with a big knee to the head which Perpetuo took well, but he continued to come off second best in the stand-up for the remainder of the round. Mein continued to be the superior striker in the second, using his reach and movement to his advtange which also landing another takedown too into the bargain. Mein went right back to tagging Perpetuo on the feet in the third and was doing a very good job of avoiding his opponents increasingly aggressive attempts to return fire. Then Mein scored another takedown and almost instantly regreted it as Perpetuo grabbed a hold of a leg lock looking for the submission. It seemed tight, but Mein stayed patient and was able to escape, before getting back upright soone after. Perpetuo went hell for leather in the closing 90 seconds, waving in Mein and throwing big punches. He finally connected with something meaningful and Mein was suddenly on the defensive and looking vulnerable for the first time. He managed to get a takedown though and rode out the final seconds to secure a decision victory (split decision was odd, not sure how Perpetuo won two rounds in one of the judges eyes).
Dustin Ortiz defeats Ray Borg by split decision (29-28 x2, 28-29)
This was a very close fight that could have gone either way. Borg seemed to win the second round thanks to an extended period on Ortiz’s back and threatening with a rear-naked choke. A case could certainly be made for Ortiz to have got the better of round three, landing the better strikes and appeared to have Borg hurt at one stage. The first round was the real decider then, and it was razor thin, with both men landing takedowns and enjoying periods in top control in the ensuing scrambles. A draw might have been a fitting decision here, but it’s Ortiz who gets the nod from two of the three judges to earn the split decision victory.
Mirsad Bektic defeats Chas Skelly by majority decision (29-27 x2, 28-28)
Good competitive fight here that had an unfortunate incident during the second round. Skelly wobbled Bektic in a striking exchange, but then landed an illegal knee to the head while Bektic had his hand on the mat. Bektic was clearly hurt by this and the referee seemed uncertain what to do. He initially looked like he was going to end the fight, but then opted to give Bektic time to recover and deducted a point from Skelly. Bektic did recover enough to fight well in the final round which produced some entertaining scrambling and reversals from both fighters on the mat, but Bektic edged the action and even without his opponent’s point deduction his work in the first and third rounds would have been enough to win the fight on two of the three scorecards.
Derrick Lewis defeats Jack May by TKO at 4.23mins of Rd1
A heavyweight fight starts the evening off, and after some early back and forth on the mat Lewis got on top and landed ground and pound to produce the TKO finish. May appeared to injury his knee too which may have partially accounted for his early demise.
