Clay Guida defeats Anthony Pettis by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Ed Herman defeats Tim Credeur by TKO at 0.48mins of Rd1
- This one was short and sweet as Herman stepped in close in an early exchange and fired an uppercut that connected cleanly to Credeur’s jaw and sent him crashing to the canvas. Three ground and pound strikes later and it’s all over.
Kyle Kingsbury defeats Fabio Maldonado by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
Close, competitive fight here. Kingsbury had considerable success with knees from the clinch throughout the fight and took Maldonado to the mat on several occasions, but in return Maldonado demonstrated powerful looking punches to the body and nice uppercuts. Kingsbury struggled in the third after having his left eye swollen shut early in the round, but ultimately soldiered on to claim a unanimous decision win.
Chris Cope defeats Chuck O’Neil by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
- It was all Cope in this fight, showing a good variety of offensive striking throughout and mixing up his combinations well, though he never looked like finishing his opponent. O’Neil on the other hand offered virtually nothing in return and the fight just completely passed him by.
Jeremy Stephens defeats Daniel Downes by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26 x2)
- Downes was second best all evening against stephens, but credit to him for surviving being rocked by a punch in the first, being caught in an extremely deep kimura attempt in the third, and a big cut above his left eye in the third to take it to the scorecards.
George Roop defeats Josh Grispi by TKO at 3.14mins of Rd3
Grispi looked like a future star during his time in the WEC, but he’s now slumped to two consecutive defeats. He started off well here, gaining an early takedown and staying busy with a series of submission attempts. Roop defended smartly though and by the end of the round was coming into the fight. Then in the second it was Roop taking Grispi down and roughing him up for much of the five minutes with punches and elbows. Early in the third Grispi took top control but was ineffective and after being stood back up Roop changed up a gear, firing off combinations of punches and kicks, before finally landing a body shot that left Grispi slumped on the mat.
Shamar Bailey defeats Ryan McGillivray by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
- Consistent takedowns and a solid base from top control were Shamar Bailey’s keys to victory here as he took a relatively comfortable unanimous decision win.
Clay Harvison defeats Justin Edwards by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
- Another entertaning fight. Edwards lived up to his reputation as a quick starter, gaining the upper-hand in the first with takedowns and submission attempts. By round two it became clear he was tiring after his early excersions though and Harvison came back into the fight. In the third Harvison looked to take advantage of his conditioning advantage and went with an early blitz of strikes, but Edwards hung in there. from then on it was relatively even and by the end of the round both men were exhausted, but still trying to seize the victory. Harvison eventually got the nod from the judges, but it could have went either way.
Scott Jorgensen defeats Ken Stone by KO at 4.01mins of Rd1
- Fun fight for as long as it lasted. Stone showed good hands early and connected cleanly on several occasions. Jorgensen then took him down and remarkably managed to KO him with a single bombing right hand despite being inside his guard. So unexpected was this that he landed another three blows to his unconscious opponent before the referee realised what had happened and leapt in to stop the fight.
Reuben Duran defeats Francisco Rivera by submission (rear-naked choke) at 1.57mins of Rd3
- A series of choke attempts marked the most significant moments in this fight, with Duran finding himself in several guillotine submissions in the first round before beginning to turn the screw against the tiring Rivera and finally sinking in a rear-naked choke of his own in the final minutes of the fight.
