Round 1
Ken Stone opens the scoring in the curtain jerker with a nice left hand. Pague backs off a bit but Stone pursues and misses with a spinning-back kick. Pague scores with a nice knee after the fighters clinch but Stone fires back with a one-two. Stone lands a hard low kick before catching a wayward inside-leg kick to the privates. Referee Gasper Oliver gives him time to recover and we are back at it. Stone finds a home for his right hand in the ribs of Pague but is answered right away with a right to his grill. Stone pushes the pace landing a grazing head kick as time ticks away in the first. Ken Stone secures round one on Sherdog.com's card by a score of 10-9.

Round 2
Stone circles then shoots for a takedown but he is stalled along the cage. After two minutes and no improvement of position, Oliver finally separates them. Off the restart, Pague gets repaid in kind with a shot south of the belt line. He says he is ready to continue after a brief halt to the action. Pague lands a few middling shots but not much happening here in the second frame. By default, Pague gets round two by a 10-9 score.

Round 3
Pague comes out a tad more aggressive in the final period. He stalks Stone from the center of the cage and lands a one-two. Stone shoots again but is rebuffed. Pague turns it around for a moment and brings Stone to the mat but in the ensuing scramble Stone takes top position. Stones try to get busy but Pague keeps him largely at bay with an active guard. Stone fires off some hard elbows but their accuracy is questionable. Pague wall-walks back to his feet in the final moments of the fight but is forced to fend off a guillotine attempt as time expires. Ken Stone takes the third 10-9 and the fight 29-28 on the Sherdog card.

Official decision: Stone takes a split decision with scores of 29-28 (twice) and 28-29.


Round 1
Dan Miller and Ricardo Funch get things rolling in their welterweight affair. Miller hammers a hard kick to Funch's body to literally and figuratively kick things off. Funch charges in and clinches, searching for a takedown. Miller fends him off and after about a minutes breaks free and lands a big right hook that staggers Funch. The Brazilian fires back valiantly and backs Miller away. Funch lands a head kick in the closing moments of the first but is not enough to steal the round. Miller, 10-9 on the Sherdog card.

Round 2
Miller punches his way across the Octagon and grabs hold of Funch's neck. He looks for the guillotine briefly before giving it up. The fighters separate but Miller clinches again and cinches another choke attempt, this one is much tighter. Funch shows good composure and extracts himself again. Miller won't give up and wraps up again. This time Funch breaks free and the fighters tumble to the mat with Miller on his back. Funch sands and drops some punches but Miller uses an upkick to create space and stands back up. Funch tries to work for a takedown while Miller locks up yet another loose guillotine. The round closes with the fighters still tangled along the cage. Miller gets another round 10-9 on Sherdog's card.

Round 3
Not much going on here in the third until about a minute in when Miller drops Funch with a big right as he exited the clinch. Miller swarms with punches and elbows but referee Dan Miragliotta allows it to continue as Funch valiantly defends himself. Miller lets him back up and cracks him with a number of hard shots. Funch won't go away though and actually scores a takedown of his own. Miller sinks another guillotine from the bottom and this one looks like it could do the trick. Funch tries to roll up along the cage to relieve the pressure but he goes too far and allows Miller to take the top with the choke still sunk. The end comes at 3:12 of the third when Funch taps out to end the spirited match.


Round 1
Ramos looks to loop his left hook inside and goes to the thigh with a low kick. He slips on the next one but Brown can’t capitalize, though “The Immortal” socks him once Ramos is back on the feet. Ramos gets double underhooks and shoves Brown into the cage, then trips him down after a brief struggle. Ramos tries to take the back as soon as they hit the floor, but Brown uses the fence to work back to his feet and reverses the position. They break off and trade straight punches in center cage. Ramos initiates the clinch again and holds Brown on the fence for the last minute, but doesn’t do much in the way of offense.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Ramos
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ramos
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Ramos

Round 2
Brown sticks a jab in Ramos’ face but the Brazilian charges forward and puts Brown on the cage with a single-leg attempt. Brown fends off the takedown and steps in with a knee, then a body blow. Ramos hits the deck -- looked like a partial slip -- but when he gets up he’s greeted by knees in the Thai clinch. Brown trying some short elbows inside, then blitzes Ramos with long, straight punches. Ramos has had enough of the striking and ties up again. Brown turns him around and drills him with a knee. Ramos wobbles and Brown pounces with punches, knees to the gut. Just when he looks to be in danger of being finished, Ramos spins to take Brown’s back standing and then drops down for a single-leg. Brown denies the takedown and puts Ramos’ back on the fence, then starts unloading with knees and uppercuts. Ramos is still on his feet, his back to a cage post, but his face is a mess and he’s not defending well as Brown pours on the punishment. Referee Gasper Oliver has seen enough and steps in to wave it off, giving Matt Brown the TKO win at 4:20 of round two.


Round 1
Catone tries to grab a low kick from Camozzi, can’t get it and instead punches Camozzi in the face. The taller Camozzi keeps his distance, shutting down another takedown try as he dodges power right hands from the “Jersey Devil.” Camozzi gets clipped with a right and puts Catone on the fence, but can’t hold him there long. Probing jabs from Camozzi are followed by a left hand over the top. Camozzi sticks another jab but eats a one-two from Catone and then a leg kick. Catone has a double-leg denied with just over a minute left in the round. Catone keeps moving forward and hits a single-leg with 40 seconds on the clock. Camozzi uses his long limbs to keep Catone at bay with a butterfly guard.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Camozzi
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Catone
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Catone

Round 2
It’s an aggressive start to the second frame for Camozzi, who pushes forward, trying to trap Catone against the fence and get off with some strikes. The pace slows but Camozzi continues stalking Catone and digs an underhook. Catone reverses into the fence and exits the tie-up with a right hand. Catone puts Camozzi on the cage now, working an underhook with his left arm and punching to Camozzi’s body with the right. A couple nice uppercuts from Catone as he exits and they’re back to throwing. Camozzi snuffs a double-leg attempt and throws a pair of knees to the body before disengaging. Catone drives hard on a single-leg and puts Camozzi on his back, and Camozzi throws up his legs, maybe hunting for a triangle. He can’t get his right leg free, so it’s back to butterfly guard and trying to keep Catone at bay. Catone is standing up, keeping his hips heavy and working to pass while throwing sporadic ground-and-pound. That’s where the round ends.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Catone
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Catone
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Camozzi

Round 3
Camozzi scores with a punching combo and Catone bounces off the fence. Camozzi keeps after him, throwing knees, elbows and body blows in close quarters as he pins the New Jerseyan against the fence. Catone’s face is bloodied from a gash on the inside of the eyebrow, dripping down into his left eye. The cut is bad and referee Dan Miragliotta wants the physician to take a closer look. It only takes the doc a few seconds of examination before Miragliotta leaves the corner, waving an end to the bout. Chris Camozzi gets the win by doctor stoppage at 1:51 of round three.


Round 1
The shorter Gambino steps inside to punch and is spun down by a single-leg from Siler. The New Yorker pops back to his feet and they tangle along the fence, Siler exiting with a knee. The strike opens a cut on Gambino’s hairline that sends a stream of blood trickling directly down the center of his face. Gambino drives Siler into the fence with a single-leg but Siler threatens with a standing guillotine. Gambino pops his head loose and wings away with punches, one of which clips Siler and momentarily buckles his legs. Siler recovers quickly and puts Gambino on the ground, then steps into mount. Gambino drives forward to get Siler off his chest, but as he does, Siler cinches up a tight guillotine and falls back to guard. Gambino has no choice but to tap out at 2:47 of the first round.
Round 1
The southpaw Story twitches and feints as he inches toward Jardine, occasionally swinging a left hand and pawing with jabs. Jardine looks hesitant to engage as he backs away from Story and is eventually driven to the canvas. Story is in good position almost instantly, sneaking around to the back of the turtling Jardine and working to sink in hooks. Story has his right leg through but can’t stabilize his position as Jardine tries to posture up and shake the Washingtonian off his back. Story loses the hook, goes briefly to side control and Jardine escapes to his feet. Jardine tries to come inside and gets tagged with a punch from Story, who’s now mixing in some leg kicks. Jardine pulls up short on his punches to the body and a tie-up attempt, still looking a bit gunshy. Story’s offense slows in the last half-minute but he finishes strong, attacking Jardine against the fence.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Story
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Story
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Story

Round 2
Story ducks under a punch from Jardine and plows him down at the base of the fence. Jardine puts his left side to the fence and tries to get back to his feet, allowing Story to drill some knees to the body and then jump onto Jardine’s back. Again, Story can’t sink in his hooks and Jardine escapes the position. Story walks in behind some punches and gets another takedown; now he’s trying to take Jardine’s back as they sit at the base of the cage, but again Story has only one hook in. The New Jersey crowd starts to boo as Story tries to secure the position. He can’t get it and attacks Jardine with knees to the body before they break away. They parry punches for a minute until Story single-legs Jardine in the middle of the cage to finish the round.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Story
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Story
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Story

Round 3
Story dodges a few punches before getting inside on Jardine and dragging him to the ground. Jardine gets to his knees again and Story pins him on the fence, socking Jardine with a couple hard left before letting go. Another takedown goes for Story but he doesn’t keep Jardine on the ground long enough to do much. Jardine slips on a kick but Story doesn’t pounce. Story traps Jardine on the fence and attacks with punches, and Jardine is scrambling from his knees. Story tries a guillotine that doesn’t go and when they get back to their feet, Jardine clips Story in the cup with a turning kick. Story doesn’t need long to recover from the accidental foul, and he scores another takedown soon after they resume. Jardine falls to the ground, seemingly almost voluntarily, after getting clipped by a right from Story. He hops back up, but Story hits another takedown and attacks the left arm of Jardine from the topside in the final minute. Jardine pops the limb loose and dives for a last-second leglock, but it’s too late.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Story (30-27 Story)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Story (30-27 Story)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Story (30-27 Story)

Official result: All three judges score the bout 30-27 for the winner by unanimous decision, Rick Story.


Round 1
The lightweights tie up in the clinch almost immediately and Keith lands a low knee. Ref Yves Lavigne warns Keith that he could be docked a point if it happens again. When they resume, Keith gets off well with a right hand that seems to stagger Nijem, who works a single-leg afterward. Keith sprawls all over it and Nijem rolls to his back, nearly being mounted in the process. Keith does step into mount, but Nijem sweeps quickly and drives for another takedown. Another good sprawl from Keith and he punishes Nijem with punches as he keeps digging. Nijem finally hits the takedown with about 3:00 left on the clock, and soon he steps info full mount. Keith squirms and bucks under fire from Nijem’s punches and elbows. Keith turns on his side while Nijem is still punching and referee Yves Lavigne intervenes. Keith gets to his knees just as Lavigne is stopping the fight, but the call’s been made and Nijem gets the TKO win at 2:29 of round one.
Round 1
Hioki starts walking in on the shorter Lamas immediately, moving the American back with punches before clinching up on the fence. They trade knees inside with Hioki throwing elbows over the top and looking for the Thai clinch. Trip takedown goes for Hioki but Lamas reverses instantly. Hioki throws his legs up, thinking triangle but instead catching Lamas in an omoplata. Lamas stands with Hioki still attached to his arm and slams the former Shooto champ to the ground. Hioki stays on but gives up the position soon after and the featherweights go back to the standup. Lamas strings together a couple leg kicks, a right hand and drags Hioki down with a body lock. Hioki works back to his feet and Lamas gets another waistlock as they jockey for position around the perimeter. Hioki catches Lamas leaning and trips him to the ground, landing in side-control on Lamas’ left side. Lamas regains half-guard with control of Hioki’s left leg, while Hioki leans to the far side, framing up a kimura.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Hioki
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Hioki
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Hioki

Round 2
Lamas is looking a little more aggressive at the start of round two, whipping high kicks skyward at Hioki’s head and rushing the Japanese standout with punches. Hioki has a single-leg attempt denied and Lamas punishes him for it with a rough combination against the fence. Left hook goes through for Lamas, followed shortly after by a left uppercut to the body. After the body shot, Hioki dives on a takedown, but he leaves his neck exposed to a Lamas guillotine. It looks deep but Hioki frees his head and gets on top in Lamas’ guard. Half-guard for Hioki now as he works to advance and gets caught in another guillotine. This one looks bad as well, but again Hioki pops loose. Lamas goes for two more chokes but the left side of Hioki’s neck inside is too free to force a tap.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Lamas
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Lamas
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Lamas

Round 3
Lamas sticks a straight left through the low hands of Hioki, keeps moving forward and misses with a high kick. Hioki paws at his own right eye and throws a slow front kick; not much offense from the “Iron Broomstick” in the opening 90 seconds of the third frame. Lamas sticks a one-two in Hioki’s face, then more hooks, and he whiffs on a high kick. A spinning capoeira kick from Lamas goes off the forearm of Hioki. A pair of left hooks connect for Lamas and Hioki wants to bring it to the ground. As he double-legs Lamas to the middle of the cage, Lamas grabs another guillotine choke underneath his left arm. This one looks deeper than the few previous, but Hioki is still hanging in there, working to extract his head with a minute left in the bout. The left side of Hioki’s neck is free and he pops loose with 40 seconds remaining. Hioki’s not doing anything in his opponent’s closed guard while Lamas drives his right hand into Hioki’s ribs for the last half-minute -- it’s not much, but it’s more than Hioki can muster, simply posturing up to the bell.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Lamas (29-28 Lamas)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Lamas (29-28 Lamas)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Lamas (29-28 Lamas)

Official result: All three judges score the bout 29-28 for the winner by unanimous decision, Ricardo Lamas.


Round 1
The featherweights find the range with crisp punches in the opening minute. Pearson leaps in and has a flying knee deflected, and Swanson misses as he loads up on a low kick. Pearson wraps up Swanson and drives him to the ground, landing in the American’s closed guard. Swanson posts and stands, using the fence to spin away from Pearson. Back to trading on the feet and Pearson grazes with a high kick, then gets knocked to his rear by a Swanson shot. Inside elbow from Swanson, and he just misses with a lead uppercut. Swanson falls to the ground as he kicks high, clipping Pearson on the neck. Bicycle upkicks from Swanson as he tries to fend off the Englishman from his back. Swanson stands out of range now, dodging punches from Pearson and stuffing a single-leg. Pearson keeps pressing forward to the horn, but Swanson is doing well to avoid damage and throw counter combos to Pearson’s single punches.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Swanson
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Swanson
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Swanson

Round 2
Pearson keeps coming forward, winging punches, but Swanson seems to have it figured out now and is countering beautifully. Pearson latches on to Swanson’s left leg and spins him to the ground. Swanson quickly pops back to his feet and it’s back to Cub sniping over the top while Pearson trudges forward, throwing heavy hands. Swanson leaps in with a flying knee and gets taken down, but uses the position to smash Pearson with an upkick. Pearson stays with it and stacks up on top, mashing with grimy ground-and-pound from Swanson’s open guard. Pearson grinds for a minute until Swanson explodes to his feet with about 65 seconds left. Pearson catches a front kick and tries to rush Swanson, who hops backward and zaps Pearson with two rights which set up a crushing left hook. Pearson falls into the cage, dazed, and referee Yves Lavigne rightly steps in to call a halt to the bout at 4:14 of round two.


Round 1
Waldburger feints on a shot and feels the range with punches for 40 seconds before zapping Ebersole with a clean, short left hand. Ebersole’s legs go out, but he manages to regain his senses and put Waldburger in guard as the fight hits the floor. Waldburger takes a minute to advance position and move into full mount. Waldburger sinks in a deep anaconda choke and it looks like Ebersole will be forced to tap or go unconscious. Somehow, the veteran twists into the deep submission and escapes. Back on the feet, Ebersole gets in close, trying for knees up the middle but settling for a short elbow and right hand in the clinch. Ebersole backs Waldburger into the fence and the trade big punches with Ebersole landing the harder shot. Waldburger slugs Ebersole with a hard right which provokes a mocking, mouth-agape stare from Ebersole. Again trying to work the clinch, Ebersole shoves Waldburger into the fence to close out the round.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Waldburger
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Waldburger
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Waldburger

Round 2
Waldburger goes up top with a right high kick, then changes levels and puts Ebersole on the ground at the base of the fence. Ebersole drives forward and completes a takedown of his own toward the center of the cage. Throwing up his legs, Waldburger is instantly on the hunt for a submission, first angling for a triangle and then an armlock. Ebersole slips free of both and works to advance in Waldburger’s guard. Waldburger attacks the right arm of Ebersole with an armbar, but Ebersole stacks, stands and shakes Waldburger loose. Kneebar attempt from Waldburger turns into a loose triangle, and he loses that, too. Nonetheless, Waldburger keeps attacking off his back through the second half of the round, only slowing when some heavy hammer-fists from Ebersole get through. Waldburger shakes off the strikes and goes for another triangle, but Ebersole gets free of this one as well and spends the last 30 seconds of the round smashing Waldburger with heavy ground-and-pound, Ebersole’s best offense of the fight.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Waldburger
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ebersole
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Ebersole

Round 3
Ebersole looks the fresher of the two welterweights as the final round begins, out-striking the fatigued Waldburger with knees and elbows in the clinch. Ebersole rushes the Texan into the fence with a forearm across the throat and then finishes the job with a single-leg takedown. Waldburger is still looking to throw up a triangle with Ebersole in his guard, but the legs aren’t looking as quick as in previous rounds. Waldburger slaps on a loose triangle anyway, but can’t tighten it up as Ebersole drives him into the fence. Butterfly guard for Waldburger now as he tries to keep Ebersole at bay with a minute to go. Ebersole pecks away with punches to the face and body, keeping the strikes coming steadily down the stretch and leaving Waldburger with one last solid right hand at the end.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Ebersole (29-28 Waldburger)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Ebersole (29-28 Ebersole)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Ebersole (29-28 Ebersole)

Official result: All three judges score the bout 29-28 for the winner by unanimous decision, Brian Ebersole.


Round 1
The lightweights get straight to throwing hands, with Stout scoring to the body with the right hand and southpaw Fisher looking for a home for his left. After some hard outside low kicks and an accidental low blow from Stout, Fisher walks Stout toward the cage, pawing with jabs and twice cracking Stout with hard left hooks. Stout falls after throwing a leg kick but Fisher doesn’t give chase. Stout drives forward and finishes a double-leg with just over two minutes to go in the round. Stout gets busy with some grinding ground-and-pound from Fisher’s guard, racking up some damage with punches and elbows over the top. Another takedown goes for Stout, but Fisher is up quickly from this one and finishes the close opening round on his feet.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Stout
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Stout
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Fisher

Round 2
Stout’s hands look quicker early in the second, but it’s the footwork and counterpunching of Fisher getting the better, particularly his lead left. Hooks and straight lefts continue to snap back the head of Stout, who is pulling up short on combinations and having trouble keeping balance as Fisher catches his low kicks. Fisher lands a solid kick to the body but Fisher responds right away with a clean one-two. Stout gets on his bike, bouncing backward and trying to lure Fisher in. Fisher keeps coming forward and catches Stout low with a kick to the cup. Stout is back to work quickly and hits a nice double-leg with a minute to go. Stout doesn’t do as much damage with this late takedown as he did in the opening frame, but he does finish the round on top.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Stout
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Fisher
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Stout

Round 3
Fisher is on the attack to begin the third round, trying to further mark up the face of Stout with his lead left. Stout gets a waistlock and puts some strenuous effort into trying to trip Fisher down, but it doesn’t work. Fisher comes forward again, landing a short right hook and a left straight. They trade hooks inside and it’s back to moving backward for Stout. The lead hand of Fisher is getting off better, and even a right cross from “The King” snaps back Stout’s head. Stout, for his part, lands a few good kicks to the body and occasionally comes through with a counter, but Fisher is in control on the feet. Continuing the pattern from rounds one and two, Stout lands a takedown, this time with 2:00 on the clock. Fisher uses the fence post to work his way up quicker this time, and he’s soon pressing in on Stout again. Another high double-leg from Stout yields another takedown, but ref Kevin Mulhall wants them up with 30 seconds to go. Stout really busts up the nose of Fisher in the last half-minute, getting the better of the punching exchange by repeatedly sticking Fisher with his right hand.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Stout (30-27 Stout)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Stout (29-28 Stout)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-10 (29-29 Draw)

Official result: All three judges score the bout 30-27 for the winner by unanimous decision, Sam Stout.


Round 1
Guida hops and bounces forward, twitching and rattling off punches from awkward angles while keeping Maynard on his back foot. Maynard can only land single punches in between the frantic bursts of activity from his opponent. Guida is showing some funky footwork, ducking to one side and the other while he stands in front of Maynard, baiting him to strike. Maynard does reverse trajectory and start moving forward midway through the round, but it doesn’t last long. Guida is able to sidestep a number of combos from Maynard, throwing at least two punches on his way out of each exchange. Some inside leg kicks from Guida and he loads up for a wild overhand right which is deflected.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Guida
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Guida
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Guida

Round 2
Maynard catches a finger to the eye early in round two, he only needs a few seconds to recover while Guida is warned by ref Dan Miragliotta. Guida is still escaping the wide punches of Maynard and tagging the ex-title challenger with quick counters. Maynard adds some leg kicks but Guida is keeping a busy pace off his back foot; Maynard’s offense slows as he’s forced to chase after his man. Maynard takes some more snappy punches from Guida but he’s cutting off angles, not letting Guida run amok. Guida keeps on the outside, staying busy with clusters of punches and even a high kick that sees his foot smack off Maynard’s head.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Guida
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Guida
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Guida

Round 3
Maynard is the aggressor early, and he comes straight toward Guida with a slugging right cross. Guida stays up and hops away, keeping punches in his opponent’s face, but losing a bit of his range now. Guida sticks some jabs and starts showboating, running in place and pumping more punches Maynard’s way. A double-leg attempt from Maynard won’t go, as Guida sprawls into the fence. Maynard misses with an uppercut and throws up his arms in frustration when Guida backpedals away. Guida is moving backward so fast that Maynard completely whiffs when he blitzes with a series of punches. A frustrated Maynard flips a middle finger toward Guida, who keeps moving backward, ducking in and out while slinging long punches. Maynard tries a takedown, can’t get it and lands some knees in the clinch instead before splitting off.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Guida
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Guida
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Guida

Round 4
Guida takes the outside again, bounding around the perimeter while Maynard gives chase. Maynard takes a few zippy punches from Guida before grabbing the Thai plum and drilling a pair of knees to the body. Guida appears to motion toward his hair to ref Miragliotta. Still giving chase, Maynard grazes with looping punches but can’t get close enough to the perpetually moving Guida to score with any power. Boos rain down from the New Jersey audience as Guida keeps circling away. A right uppercut from Maynard seems to stumble Guida, but Maynard can’t follow up. With 70 seconds to go, Maynard steps inside and roughs up Guida in the clinch. Maynard looks furious, walking toward and jawing at Guida with his hands down. Guida lands a hard right hook and Maynard pulls guard with a tight guillotine choke which Guida slams his way out of.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Maynard
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Maynard
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Maynard

Round 5
Maynard keeps aggressive at the start of round three, his hands at his waist as he walks down Guida. Maynard’s right hands are finding a home now, but it’s a high kick and left hook from Guida which has Maynard looking a bit dazed. Maynard stays up, though, and keeps chasing down Guida, trying to shorten the angles for “The Carpenter.” Guida completely sidesteps a shot from Maynard, who dives into the canvas. Guida’s counterpunches have slowed and referee Miragliotta pauses the action to sternly warn Guida about his inactivity. Maynard grabs hold of Guida’s ankle and digs for a takedown against the fence with 70 seconds left in the bout. Guida digs an underhook and goes to a knee, preventing the completion of the takedown but absorbing knees to the body in the process. Maynard tries some knees in the clinch as they stand back up. The crowd jeers as the bout ends without any further engaging on the feet.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Maynard (48-47 Guida)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Maynard (48-47 Guida)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Maynard (48-47 Guida)

Official result: Judge Eric Colon scores the bout 48-47 for Maynard, while judge Jose Tabora sees it 48-47 for Guida. Judge Sue Sanidad has it 48-47 for the winner by split decision, Gray Maynard.
