Jared Hamman defeats C.B. Dollaway by TKO at 3.37mins of Rd2
Impressive middleweight debut for Hamman here, surviving real adversity at times during the fight before turning the screw. Dollaway had appeared to be taking control in the first round, and looked close to finishing Hamman with an arm triangle at one stage. A little later Dollaway landed a couple of big punches to the grounded Hamman, and towards the end of the round caught him with a few big right hands, but Hamman survived. In the second Hamman pushed the pace and looked almost Nick Diaz like with his accurate, volume-punching style which appeared to take the wind out of Dollaway’s sails and eventually forced him down to the mat. Hamman rained down blows, switched from a crucifix to full-mount and continued to blast away. Dollaway managed to use the fence to roll over a couple of times but he never managed to fully escape and finally wilted under the sustained offense forcing the referee to intervene.
Joseph Benavidez defeats Eddie Wineland by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
Despite being the superior grappler it was Benavidez’s stand-up skills that would allow him to achieve a well-earned decision victory. In the first round he cut Wineland on the forehead with a slightly awkward looking overhand right, but soon after he showed better technique when he landed a further two overhand right’s followed by a left hook which left blood streaming from Wineland’s nose and appeared to shake him. Wineland struggled to get into gear after that and Benavidez continued to come out on top in the striking exchanges, again hurting Wineland in the third round before following it up with a huge flying knee that just misses. In the end it went to the scorecards and there was no doubt about the winner.
Ed Herman defeats Kyle Noke by submission (heel hook) at 4.15mins of Rd1
Herman wasted no time here and spent most of the first round looking to submit Noke. After failing with triangle and arm-bar attempts he finally grabbed a hold of a leg and went for the heel hook, forcing a tap from Noke who was grimacing in pain afterwards.
Ronny Markes defeats Karlos Vemola by unanimous decision (30-27 x3)
The debuting Ronny Markes proved to be the superior wrestler in this match-up and was able to take Vemola down at will and control him on the ground. It was a solid performance, but he was never able to get in a fight-ending situation and so had to make do with getting the unanimous nod from the judges.
Jim Hettes defeats Alex Caceres by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3.12mins of Rd2
This turned out to be a really fun grappling battle. Hettes was relentless with submission attempts, from d’arce chokes to heel hooks and arm triangles. Caceres proved to be a slippery customer though and scrambled well at times. As the fight went on Hettes’ relentless pressure paid off however as he finally grabbed a hold of Caceres neck, forced him down and took his back before squeezing on the rear-naked choke to get the tap.
Cole Miller defeats T.J. O’Brien by submission (one-arm guillotine choke) at 2.38mins of Rd2
After a slower than usual start Cole Miller gradually began to turn up the heat on TJ O’Brien. The first round was relatively even as both men tried to find their range on the feet. In round two it was Miller who was beginning to land more, using his jab effectively, and then came a looping left hanf that dropped O’Brien. After fending off Miller, O’Brien tried to get back to his feet only to find himself caught in a guillotine choke. Dropping to the mat Miller rolled him to take top control and forced the tap with one-arm in.
Jacob Volkmann defeats Danny Castillo by unanimous decision (29-28 x3)
A dominant display of grappling from Volkmann earned him a decision victory here. Numerous times throughout the 15 minutes of action Volkmann looked for a d’arce choke, and he had it deep on several occasions, but Castillo showed excellent defense and composure to survive until the end.
Edwin Figueroa defeats Jason Reinhardt by TKO at 0.50mins of Rd2
Reinhardt was outclassed from the start here and Figueroa took full advantage. After dominating the first round he finally earning the victory early in the second after reversing a desperate takedown attempt straight into full mount and then unleashing punches until the referee stopped him.
