Round 1
Referee Rob Hinds is the man in charge of tonight’s first bout. No touch of gloves between the bantamweights, who meet in the center of the cage and begin to stalk. Figueroa takes the middle as Reinhardt circles the outside, the veteran’s corner screaming for head movement. It’s only 45 seconds without a strike before the Milwaukee crowd gives its first jeer of the evening. Reinhardt smiles and waves Figueroa on, and ref Hinds tells them to get busy, but they don’t. Finally, Figeuroa comes forward and puts Reinhardt on his posterior with a one-two. Figueroa grabs a standing guillotine and hangs onto it as Reinhardt lifts him into the air. It looks deep, but Reinhardt keeps pushing and finally gets him down, where Figueroa gives it up. Reinhardt jumps onto his man’s back and sinks both hooks in. Figueroa defends the rear-naked choke with wrist control until he can twist around and stand back up. Back on the feet, Reinhardt shoots an ugly shot and eats a few punches. Figueroa just misses a head kick and Reinhardt pulls guard as soon as he’s close enough. Figueroa stacks him up and rains punches from above. Reinhardt’s just throwing his legs up as he eats a dozen or more unanswered punches to the body and face; he’s slow to stand as the round expires.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Figueroa
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Figueroa
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Figueroa

Round 2
Figueroa easily stuffs a pair of sloppy single-leg attempts. On the second one, he reverses Reinhardt and hops straight into full mount. After a few elbows from the top, Reinhardt turns and covers up. A couple more punches and referee Hinds has seen enough. The stoppage win for Edwin Figueroa comes officially at 0:50 of round two.


Round 1
Volkmann looks to tie up, but Castillo shucks him off and lands an overhand right, then an inside low kick. The Team Alpha Male fighter is keeping Volkmann at range with those kicks, but the wrestler gets inside and brings Castillo down after 90 seconds. Volkmann works from half-guard on Castillo’s left and throws on a brabo choke. Castillo rolls over, his head still encased in Volkmann’s arms, but he squirms and extracts it. Volkmann pops back up and tries a standing, arm-in guillotine. He abandons it quickly and they go back to circling. Castillo has a kick to the body partially blocked, then ducks in behind the strike and tries a high double-leg. Volkmann’s back is on the fence, but he defends the takedown well nonetheless, throwing sporadic punches to his ribs. Castillo won’t give up on the takedown in the last minute, but Volkmann’s got his ankle, nullifying the attempt.

Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Volkmann

Round 2
Castillo gets a takedown, but Volkmann’s immediately looking to set up another brabo choke. It’s not there this time, so the Minnesotan lets it go and uses the cage to get back to his feet. Volkmann gets behind Castillo in a scramble and has a crucifix for a brief second. Castillo pulls his arm loose and stands, only to be taken down in the center of the Octagon. Volkmann looks for an arm-triangle from half-guard, can’t find it and opts for a few elbows. Castillo clings to deep half-guard and Volkmann goes yet another brabo choke. Again, Castillo defends and scrambles out. They wind up in the same position, and Volkmann tries for the same submission. Castillo is forced to fend it off for the final 30 seconds of the middle frame.

Round 3
Castillo is headhunting with right-hand bombs and uppercuts. They don’t land, but a leg kick does. Volkmann shoots in and this time Castillo escapes the single-leg. The next try from Volkmann goes better, as he times a kick from Castillo and plows him down in the middle of the cage. No surprise: Volkmann tries for the brabo setup once more, dropping intermittent elbows on Castillo’s head. Turned onto his left side, Castillo blindly knees to the ribs of Volkmann, the only offense he can muster from this position. Volkmann looks to have the choke deep as the lightweights roll around the cage with two minutes to go. Castillo pops loose, but can’t escape the position, and Volkmann soon has the choke applied again. Confusingly, referee Mario Yamasaki threatens to stand them up from the position with 30 seconds left. He doesn’t, and Volkmann jumps onto Castillo’s back just before the final horn.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Volkmann (30-27 Volkmann)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Volkmann (30-27 Volkmann)
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Volkmann (30-27 Volkmann)

Official result: It’s a unanimous decision win for Jacob Volkmann with scores of 29-28 across the board. Judges’ names are not announced.


Round 1
Both lanky lightweights are looking for their range in the opening minute, flicking out jabs, front and leg kicks. O’Brien grazes with a head kick and Miller answers with a sweeping left. Miller pumps his jab through the guard of O’Brien, who answers with a combination to the body. Now it’s O’Brien landing clean, backing Miller up with straight right hands to the face and breadbasket. Low kick lands for O’Brien; Miller answers in kind and adds a right straight. They trade leg kicks, and O’Brien’s are looking crisper. Miller tags O’Brien with a stiff right and O’Brien begins backing away immediately, having possibly injured his leg on a low kick. Miller doubles up on a left jab, misses with the follow-up right. A switch kick is blocked by O’Brien, who comes forward with an uppercut to the guts. Inside thigh kick lands for O’Brien and Miller digs a punch to the body to finish out a very close first round.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-10
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-10
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-10

Round 2
Miller comes out more aggressive in the second, pumping his jab and putting pressure on O’Brien, who looks to back him up with front kicks. Now O’Brien comes forward, rattling off combinations, but Miller floors him with a left straight. O’Brien looks to lure Miller into his guard, but Miller stands over him and cracks him with sharp kicks to the leg. O’Brien tries to stand and Miller snares a guillotine and falls to guard. The American Top Team fighter rolls onto the top and finishes it with one arm. O’Brien is forced to submit at 2:38 of the second period.


Round 1
Veteran official Herb Dean makes his first appearance for this featherweight contest. The southpaws get right to work, Caceres landing a right hand, though a slip appears to send Hettes to his rear. He pops back up and looks for a takedown, which Caceres avoids. Caceres winds up standing over Hettes, who grabs at a leglock. It’s defended by Caceres, who’s slugging downward. Hettes decides to stand and gets a takedown instantly. He dodges a triangle attempt from Caceres and tries to strike from the top, but Caceres tries a leglock of his own and sweeps out. Caceres stacks him up and slugs with hammerfists, slipping out of an armbar attempt. Still two minutes to go in what’s been an action-packed round so far. From his back, Hettes catches an ankle and trips Caceres down, winding up in the guard of “Bruce Leroy.” Caceres keeps looking for the triangle and spins over the top of Hettes, who nearly cinches up an inverted triangle. They stand and scramble, Hettes dropping back for a heel hook. He lets it go and Caceres tries to strike from the top, but gets shoved to his back. Hettes finishes the round trying to strike through Caceres’ guard.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Caceres
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Caceres
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Caceres

Round 2
Hettes hurls Caceres to the floor with a hip-toss and tries to lock up a brabo choke. It’s not there, but Hettes is glued to Caceres’ back as he stands up. Caceres tries to scrape him off, can’t, but avoids giving up his back completely. On the floor, Hettes tries an arm-triangle, but gives it up in favor of top position. Caceres tries to stand and Hettes falls back with a guillotine. He lets it go quickly and slaps on a triangle armbar from the top. Caceres slips out and they’re back to their feet, just keeping a frantic pace as they reach the halfway point of the second round. Another judo-flavored throw from Hettes lands him in side control on Caceres’ right. Hettes tries to pin down the right arm of Caceres for a crucifix, but it doesn’t work and Caceres stands. Hettes, bleeding on his hairline, applies a standing rear-naked choke and bulldogs Caceres back down to the floor. He jumps onto Caceres’ back, but finishes the choke with no hooks in, forcing the tap at 3:12 of round two.


Round 1
Vemola comes straight forward with a right hand over the top and the 205-pounders tie up. Markes puts Vemola’s back on the fence and knees to the front and back of his thighs. Markes tries to exit with an elbow, gets rushed across the cage and tags Vemola with a right. Vemola tries a kick to the body and swings wild with punches until Markes floors him with a double-leg. His back to the fence, Vemola tries to work back up; he gets to his feet, only to be slammed back down by the Brazilian. They repeat the sequence, Markes keeping top position, but not doing much with it while Vemola throws sporadic palm strikes and sideways elbows. Vemola stands and tries a guillotine on the kneeling Markes, who simply lifts Vemola up and slams him to escape. They stand with 40 seconds left in the opening round and referee Rob Hinds implores them to work. Markes briefly gets full mount, but Vemola bucks him and grabs a guillotine. Vemola jumps it and cranks, but it’s late and Markes rides it out.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Markes
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Markes
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Markes

Round 2
Vemola again uses wild punches to wade inside. This time, he gets Markes down with a single-leg, but can hold him there for only a second. Markes soon has Vemola taken down and stuffed at the base of the fence, same as in the last round. He backs out and lets Vemola up, only to bring him back down. Open guard from Vemola, who is angling for a submission despite looking rather tired and breathing with his mouth open. Markes gives him space to stand and Vemola does, trying for his own takedown. It doesn’t come, though, and Markes pushes Vemola into the cage and drives a few knees to the Czech fighter’s midsection. One knee causes Vemola to stand upright; Markes recognizes it and trips him to the floor. Arm-triangle setup coming from Markes, who gives that up in short order in favor of knees to the ribs and hammerfists from side control. Scattered boos rain down as another dominant round for Markes ends.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Markes
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Markes
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Markes

Round 3
The first half of the final frame follows the blueprint of the preceding two: Takedown from Markes, grinding and mashing from half-guard. With two minutes to go, the Nova Uniao fighter takes side control on Vemola’s right and frames up a kimura on the left arm. North-south position now, and then back to the side. Short elbows and punches find the head and body of the exhausted Vemola in the final minute. Vemola just clasps his hands and tries to negate the space. The crowd really lets them hear it with 20 seconds to go. Markes finishes the fight out from the top, punching Vemola’s ribs.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Markes (30-27 Markes)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Markes (30-27 Markes)
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Markes (30-27 Markes)

Official result: The scorecards come as no surprise, as all three read 30-27 in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Ronny Markes. Judges’ names are not announced.


Round 1
Noke comes out firing with a kick, lands a right hand and tries a takedown. He’s reversed and tripped down by Herman, but he stands right back up and puts Herman on his back at the fence. Herman closes up his guard and control the Australian’s wrists, hunting for an armbar. He swings his hips, but Noke defends. Herman switches to a triangle now, but can’t get his right ankle tucked in for the finish. Noke drives elbows down from the closed guard of Herman, who’s soon looking for another triangle. Again, “Short Fuse” can’t lock it up, but he rolls onto his belly and tries to stretch out an armbar. Noke has a good angle to defend and winds up back in the American’s guard. Noke nearly steps into full mount, but Herman comes out the back. Herman traps Noke’s left heel under his armpit and wrenches a nasty inside heel hook. Noke’s tries to escape, but his leg is bent at a gruesome angle and he’s forced to relent at 4:15 of the first round.


Round 1
The southpaw Benavidez front- and leg-kicks to keep his taller opponent at bay. Wineland is hanging outside, picking his punches, and has marked up Benavidez’s left eye within the first 90 seconds. A trickling cut has opened on the hairline of Wineland, who gets stunned and bloodied on the snout with a heavy right-left combination from the Team Alpha Male fighter. With 90 seconds left, Wineland paws as his nose, which is streaming blood, but still tags Benavidez coming in with a right hand. Benavidez switches his stance back and forth, catching Wineland with leg kicks and punches to the gut before the end of the round.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Benavidez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Benavidez
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Benavidez

Round 2
An uppercut from Wineland is answered by a pair of Benavidez leg kicks. Despite being patched up between rounds, Wineland’s nose is a mess again less than 40 seconds into the middle frame. After a right cross from Wineland lands, Benavidez turns his back as if to say he was jabbed in the eye. Referee Josh Rosenthal doesn’t acknowledge it and Wineland moves in for the kill. Benavidez turns his back and covers up against the cage, weathering a short storm from the former WEC champ. Back to the center of the cage, Wineland continues swiping at his likely broken nose. Benavidez comes in with a left straight-overhand right and follows with a single-leg attempt. Wineland stifles it with an underhook, but takes a couple knees to the gut before breaking off the clinch. Another shot from Benavidez is stuffed, though he scores with more knees from the tie-up. Wineland tosses him to the ground momentarily and Benavidez hops right back up. Benavidez has another shot sprawled on, but he turns the corner and forces Wineland down seconds before the round ends.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Benavidez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Benavidez
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Benavidez

Round 3
Benavidez tags Wineland with a right hook, but can’t follow up as he slips on the logo in the center of the cage. Moments later, another Benavidez hook lands. Wineland stumbles backward and Benavidez lunges after him with a flying knee that just misses its mark. Benavidez is shifting his stance nonstop, as he has been for much of the fight. A right hand over the top finds Wineland’s temple, then Benavidez fakes a shot and sends his man sprawling. Wineland catches a kick and socks Benavidez with a straight right, but time is ticking away. Benavidez shoots for real and is sprawled all over. Thirty seconds left now and Wineland is swinging for the fences. Benavidez ducks his taller foe’s bombs and rides out the round for what should be a clear-cut decision win.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Benavidez (30-27 Benavidez)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Benavidez (30-27 Benavidez)
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Benavidez (30-27 Benavidez)

Official result: All three judges have it 30-27 for the winner by unanimous decision, Joseph Benavidez.


Round 1
Both men attack to the legs and bodies early, but it’s Hamman scoring better with an outside leg kick and right hand up top. Dollaway hits a takedown, then another in short order. Brabo setup from Dollaway, who abandons it and tries to hop on Hamman’s back. Hamman scrambles to his feet and Dollaway spins him back down, immediately moving to full mount. Hamman gives up his back, then twists around. Instead of a rear-naked, Dollaway cinches up an arm-triangle and hops off to Hamman’s left side. Hamman defends a dangerous choke attempt beautifully and puts Dollaway back in his full guard. The “Doberman” stands up and lobs bombs from above, smashing Hamman, who scrambles to his feet once he can find the room. Now Hamman gets the takedown and moves to side control, then hops to full mount. Dollaway twists and gives up his back, and Hamman lands a few punches from the back mount before Dollaway reverses. They stand back up and a pair of big right hands from Dollaway rattle Hamman, but he survives to the horn.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Dollaway
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Dollaway
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Dollaway

Round 2
A steady stream of punches from Hamman has Dollaway covering and backing up. Six- or eight-punch combo and a big right uppercut puts Dollaway on his rear against the cage. Hamman gives chase, stacking the cowering Dollaway up and blasting the wrestler with left hands and elbows. Hamman has a crucifix now and Dollaway is in bad shape. Full mount for Hamman against the cage and Hamman bashes away with rights and lefts. Dollaway does well to escape, using his legs to push off the cage, but Hamman is all over him. Side control from Hamman and Dollaway kicks off again. Referee Herb Dean implores Dollaway to fight back as he eats a barrage of unanswered punches from side control. He doesn’t, and Dean waves the contest off at 3:38 of round two, giving Hamman a win in his middleweight debut.


Round 1
Sadollah stalks from the inside of the cage with leg kicks, eats a knee coming in, but tags Ludwig with a right hand. The welterweights lean on the cage with over-unders, trading knees up the middle with Ludwig getting the better shots to Sadollah’s breadbasket. They switch to the Thai plum until Sadollah drops for a double-leg, which Ludwig defends by widening his base on the fence. A left hand from Ludwig jacks Sadollah’s jaw, then a speedy one-two and a left head kick. Sadollah keeps coming forward, though, eating a left hook to the face and another which rips to the body. Another pair of head kicks from Ludwig slap Sadollah, followed by one to the leg and a stiff left jab. Left hook stumbles Sadollah, who tries to shoot in but is stuffed by Ludwig. “Bang” clinches and zaps Sadollah with an elbow, then disengages and lays a combination on Amir. Vicious punches and kicks to the body from Ludwig as time runs down in the opening frame.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Ludwig
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ludwig
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Ludwig

Round 2
Sadollah’s corner asks him to use his kicks as the second frame starts and he does just that, lobbing them to the body and a few to the front. Ludwig looks confident after a one-sided first round, though, and paws at Sadollah with left hooks and counters to the gut. Ludwig comes inside, pulls Sadollah’s head down and puts a knee on his chin, followed by a left hook. Another counter left has Sadollah scrambling for a takedown that doesn’t come. The left hand is landing every time for Ludwig as Sadollah tries to get in close. A straight right snaps Sadollah’s head back. Ludwig goes to the clinch and tries for knees that don’t quite reach. He does defend a takedown from Sadollah, however, and Ludwig shoots for one of his own with 70 seconds on the clock. Sadollah sprawls on the fence and they break off. Sadollah fires a teep kick over Ludwig’s shoulder and takes a straight one-two from Ludwig.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Ludwig
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ludwig
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Ludwig

Round 3
Sadollah comes out hot, firing off a head kick, a combination and wading in for a takedown behind it. He scores, but Ludwig pops right out and leaves Sadollah kneeling. After a few leg kicks, Sadollah dives for another takedown; this one doesn’t work. Back on the feet, though, Sadollah’s punches are beginning to get through Ludwig’s guard, slow though they may be. A front kick pushes Ludwig’s face back and Bang grins wide before sprawling on a shot. Halfway through the final round now and the muay Thai stylists are trading punch-for-punch. Ludwig snaps off a three-punch combo, a leg kick, then one to the head. Sadollah digs a right hand to the ribs and has a high kick blocked. Ludwig’s right hand is landing over and over, and the counter left hook makes another appearance. With 30 seconds on the clock, Ludwig shoots a double and grounds Sadollah on the fence. A few short punches from Ludwig get through on the ground before time expires.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Sadollah (29-28 Ludwig)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ludwig (30-27 Ludwig)
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Ludwig (30-27 Ludwig)

Official result: All three scorecards read 29-28 for the winner by unanimous decision, Duane Ludwig.


Round 1
Cerrone lands first with a left hook, then stifles Oliveira’s attempt to tie up and scores with a knee. The Brazilian lands an inside leg kick and has a left high kick blocked. He catches a knee from Cerrone and tries another takedown, forcing Cerrone to wade back out. An inside thigh kick from Cerrone grazes the cup of Oliveira, and the youngster takes a moment to recover. When they restart, Cerrone puts on a nice one-two and follows with a leg kick. Front kick lands flush for Oliveira. Cerrone puts a left straight on Oliveira, then a big left uppercut to the body drops him. His nose bloodied, Oliveira covers up as Cerrone drops 20 unanswered punches. Once Oliveira starts to turn over, referee Mario Yamasaki steps in for the stoppage at the 3:01 mark.


Round 1
Josh Rosenthal has officiating duties for the lightweight co-main event. Henderson treads inside early, but backs out when he’s clubbed with a left from his fellow southpaw. The former WEC champ ties Miller up and digs a heel into his hip before Miller gets his back off the fence. They clinch in the middle of the cage and Miller locks up a standing arm-triangle. He leaps onto Henderson and wraps his legs around, but Henderson defends well. Sensing that the hold isn’t going to finish his opponent, Miller tries to move around to the back, but only makes it halfway before he’s slammed down. The New Jersey native tries to work the rubber guard before hopping back to his feet, eating a kick from Henderson on the way. Now Henderson clinches against the fence and Miller tries a standing kimura. He drops to the floor and puts his legs around Henderson’s head, but has to let go of the hold. Henderson tries a guillotine, but Miller gets out, grabs one of his own and sits down in guard. Henderson extracts his head and lands a trio of hard elbows from the top before going down to Miller’s half-guard. A few more elbows come down from Henderson, including one to the back of the head, for which he’s warned by Rosenthal.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Miller
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Miller
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Miller

Round 2
Henderson slices Miller open near the right eyebrow with a pair of standing elbows before tripping him to the ground. Miller tries rubber guard again, can’t get it, and rolls through for a leglock. There doesn’t appear to be anything there, and Miller is cut again as Henderson catches him with another elbow. Miller extends the leglock on Henderson’s left limb, but “Smooth” gives a thumbs-up to ref Rosenthal. Heel hook attempt from Miller now; this hold isn’t working either, and Miller absorbs another flurry from Henderson as he tries. Back on the feet, Miller grimaces as he works for a kimura on the left arm of Henderson, who takes the opportunity to slam his bloodied opponent back down. While Miller tries to isolate the arm, he takes punches and elbows to the body and head, including a particularly heavy assault to close out the frame.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Henderson
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Henderson
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Henderson

Round 3
Left hooks and leg kicks from Henderson are working well early in the third; about 30 seconds in, one kick buckles the leg of Miller, now streaming blood under his left eye. A left cross from Miller sends Henderson to the canvas, but he seems too tired finish. Miller follows him down, but Henderson powers back up to his feet and walks Miller across the canvas, where he plants him on the base of the fence. Hard punches from the top by Henderson and then he transitions to the back-mount. Miller tries to roll free, but Henderson’s hooks are in and he’s nearly there on the rear-naked choke. Miller turns over and Henderson takes mount, punishing with nasty elbows. Miller gets to his knees, taking Henderson out of side control, but things aren’t much better from there. Henderson has Miller seated on the fence, just slamming him with elbows. With 20 seconds left, Henderson tries a guillotine, but it’s not there. Miller stands and charges forward, desperately swinging just before the horn.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Henderson (29-28 Henderson)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-8 Henderson (29-27 Henderson)
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Henderson (29-28 Henderson)

Official result: The scorecards read 30-27, 29-28 and 30-26, all in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Ben Henderson.


Round 1
Herb Dean is the third man in the cage for tonight’s welterweight main event, with judges Sal D’Amato, Nelson Hamilton and Glenn Trowbridge scoring at cageside. Lytle makes first contact with a right hand over the top. Hardy swipes with his left and Lytle answers with a cracking shot to the body. Left hook lands for Hardy, but he’s tripped as his kick is caught. No ground fighting here, though, as the sluggers go right back to trading. Lytle puts a right, a left, another left on Hardy’s chin, causing the Brit to smile. Lytle points to his chin and Hardy obliges the request by putting a counter left hook on the American as he comes forward. Lytle gets inside and swings wildly, a left hand finding its way to Hardy’s cheek. Left hook grazes and a wrecking-ball right hand lands for Lytle. It stumbles Hardy momentarily, but he keeps coming forward. Lytle sticks a jab in the face of Hardy, who misses with his final few combos of the frame.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Lytle
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Lytle
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Lytle

Round 2
Lytle is grinning as he leaves his corner for round two; Hardy is not. Lytle is landing upstairs and down, hooks to the body and big overhand rights to the head. A right straight from Hardy lands clean and puts Lytle on wobbly legs, and Hardy ties up behind it. He exits with a knee to the gut and the Englishman seems to have regained some confidence. Lytle tries to measure the range with his left hand and pokes Hardy in the eye. Hardy takes only a minute to recover, though, and they get back to business. Lytle uncorks a group of wild punches that leave Hardy smiling. Hardy lands an uppercut of his own, misses with a follow-up knee and tries for a takedown. Lytle sprawls on it and stands back up, ready to bang. A trio of overhand shots from Lytle -- left, right, left -- pound Hardy’s face, but he answers with a stiff knee. Lytle comes with the big right up top, a left, and another right to the gut. Head down, Lytle steps inside and slugs Hardy with a left, then backs out before Hardy can return fire. Lytle lands a glancing kick to the body. Hardy comes forward with a one-two, answered by a right hook from Lytle. Right straight from Lytle has Hardy turning, and the American takes the opportunity to land a great left hook at the horn.

Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Hardy
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Lytle
Freddie DeFreitas scores the round 10-9 Lytle

Round 3
Lytle lands first in the last round of his career, a left hook to the mush. Another stiff left from Lytle, then a right to Hardy’s body. Hardy comes over the top with a one-two of his own, but Lytle’s are landing cleaner, particularly the left hook. Another lands and Lytle bails out to the right. Hardy throws an outside leg kick but absorbs a left hook, then another. Lytle lobs a leg kick of his own. Halfway through the round and Hardy is still bouncing on his feet, though the pace has slowed decidedly. Lytle hits a right hand to the body and Hardy replies with a left to Lytle’s face. Hardy misses a step-in knee, but grazes Lytle with the follow-up right. Lytle pops Hardy with a left hook, a right to the body. Hardy ties up, but it’s Lytle who lands a combo. Hardy takes a knee on the exit. Hardy dives for a way-out takedown and Lytle grabs a guillotine. Lytle rolls into full mount with the choke locked and Hardy resists momentarily before slowly and dramatically tapping out. It’s a remarkable end to Chris Lytle’s career at 4:16 of the third round.
