Round 1
Martins lands a couple leg kicks outside, then one to the body, and the crowd is reacting for the Brazilian early. Larsen gets hold of a leg, can’t take Martins down, but cracks him with a right hand against the fence. Martins has to defend a single-leg on the fence for a moment, then gets slugged with an elbow as Larsen backs off. Larsen hits a counter-punch off a leg kick, comes up just short with a leaping knee to the body. A straight right hand puts Martins on his posterior. Larsen stands over him and Martins goes for a leg, then a calf slicer. Larsen pulls his leg free and holds the now-standing Martins on the fence. They get off the cage with about two minutes left in the round. Both men swinging punches now, neither landing anything clean, but Martins pops Larsen with a knee as the American shoots in and hits a takedown. Martins stands up and is immediately double-legged back to the mat. Martins is soon back on his feet again, and now he’s putting together punches on Larsen. The Brazilian slips on a leg kick and Larsen comes down to Martins’ guard for the final 30 seconds of the round.

Martins zaps Larsen with a nice uppercut, but the American stands firm in the middle of the cage to continue striking. Larsen comes in behind a big overhand right and holds Martins on the fence. Larsen works on a single-leg for a few seconds, backs up and gets hit with a short punch. Back on the single-leg goes Larsen; he doesn’t try long this time, backing out with just over three minutes left in the frame. Larsen eats a straight punch and counters with a left hook, but the punch from Martins seems to have opened up a large cut under Larsen’s right eye. Martins lands an uppercut as Larsen walks him down on the fence and goes after another single-leg. A clubbing left hook from Larsen backs Martins off. A pair of hard right hands has Martins on rubbery legs again, but Larsen just can’t polish him off. Another wide right knocks the spit out of Martins’ mouth before the end of the round.

Round 1

Cariaso stands and is instantly tripped back down, where Formiga begins working to take the back. Cariaso goes to his back and throws up a triangle which is easily slipped by the Brazilian. Formiga quickly moves from half-guard to side control on Cariaso’s left, then nearly steps into full mount but is blocked. Cariaso regains half-guard, almost gets full but can’t escape Formiga’s active top control. Referee Kevin Mulhall pauses the action to remove loose tape from Formiga’s glove, and then bafflingly restarts the fighters standing up.

Formiga unloads with a couple punches on top before being pushed out to guard once again. Ref Mulhall stands them up with 1:45 left in the round and Cariaso clips Formiga with a right hook before being shoved against the fence. Formiga lets go and they’re back to feinting and pawing with punches for the last 40 seconds.

Gashimov shoves off and circles out, where Lineker begins stalking again. Gashimov shoots in for a takedown and Lineker shoves him to the ground with an underhook. Lineker works from Gashimov’s open guard, postures up and grinds with elbows on top. Gashimov gets to one knee, takes a knee to the body and escapes to his feet. Gashimov still looks fresh as he bounces on his toes in front of Lineker, though the Russian’s face is bearing the marks from Lineker’s early offense. Another right hand connects for Lineker, who’s still looking for the homerun shot. A left-right combo scores for Lineker, who chases Gashimov around the perimeter. Gashimov grabs the fence as he tries to resist a Lineker takedown, and referee Mario Yamasaki is quick to deduct a point from Gashimov.

The left hand is scoring for Lineker now, swiping across Gashimov’s face and leaving him stunned while Lineker follows up with rights to the body. A body kick and a right hand to the ribs put Gashimov down at the base of the fence, and follow-up punches force referee Yamasaki to intervene at 1:07 of the second round, giving John Lineker the stoppage victory.

Round 1
Hollett swings a wild overhand right as he tries to walk Maldonado against the fence. Maldonado moves to the middle and blocks a pair of punches from the Canadian, backing up. Hollett backs Maldonado against the fence again and throws a spinning back-kick straight to Maldonado’s cup. The Brazilian is laid out on the canvas in pain as referee Leon Roberts pauses the action. Maldonado tells the ref that he doesn’t want to see the doctor and gets to his feet. The fight resumes after another minute, and now it’s Maldonado moving Hollett around the outside. Hollett hits a double-leg in the middle of the cage with three minutes left in the round and works to pass Maldonado’s half-guard. Referee Roberts stands them up with about two minutes left, a questionable decision considering Hollett’s top position. Hollett puts Maldonado on the fence again, eating a couple knees and punches to the body from the Brazilian as they clinch. Roberts breaks them up again with a minute to go and Hollett hits another takedown. Maldonado tries a guillotine, loses it and finishes the round with Hollett on top, in half-guard.

Round 3
Hollett changes levels on an incoming Maldonado and hits a single-leg, but Maldonado pops right back up and puts Hollett’s back on the fence. Maldonado instantly begins attacking the body with uppercuts and hooks, punishing Hollett with a couple up top before the Canadian manages to reverse the position. Maldonado quickly gets back on the outside and goes back to blasting Hollett with punches to the body and head. Maldonado is playing with his food a bit now, letting Hollett stumble around the outside before picking a spot to clinch and attack. More uppercuts rock the ribs of an exhausted Hollett, who somehow spins around and escapes Maldonado’s grasp. Hollett tries to throw some punches, a standing elbow, but he’s way short. He leans Maldonado against the fence and Maldonado loops punches around the back of Hollett’s head before complaining to the ref of Hollett’s inactivity. Ref Roberts breaks them up with 30 seconds left and Maldonado hits a takedown to finish the fight on top.

Iuri Alcantara gets the knockout win at 2:31 of the first round. Round 1
Prazeres throws low kicks outside and keeps his hands in front of him, trying to fend off the larger Thiago. A double-leg attempt winds up with Prazeres holding Thiago on the fence using an underhook. Prazeres tries to toss Thiago to the ground, gets the UFC vet to his knees and looks to take the back. Thiago thwarts it and shoves Prazeres to the ground briefly. “Tractor” pops back up and holds Thiago on the fence again until midway through the round when referee Mario Yamasaki splits them up for inactivity. Prazeres keeps working leg kicks and trying to stay on the outside of Thiago’s punches. A couple jabs get through for Thiago, but Prazeres is doing well to move out of the way.

Prazeres gets up again, pushes Thiago to the fence and now hits a takedown of his own while holding Thiago with a rear waistlock. Prazeres fends off a throw attempt from Thiago, connects with a hard left hand and puts Thiago on his seat at the base of the fence.

Cholish wings a wild punch and eats a big, left-handed counter from Tibau that takes out Cholish’s legs. A right straight from Tibau puts Cholish on his knees, shooting for a desperation takedown, and Tibau takes advantage by pulling guard with a guillotine.

Round 1
The southpaw Trinaldo connects with a hard left straight in the first 30 seconds of the bout. Another left finds its mark before Rio changes levels and hits a takedown in the center of the cage.

Dias goes for a takedown, so Lentz counters with a guillotine. Dias frees his head with 3:20 left in the fight and frames up an arm-triangle choke. Dias is still in half-guard, squeezing the choke, but Lentz won’t tap. Lentz gets his arm in to free up some space and releases himself from the arm-triangle. Dias stays on top despite a near-sweep from Lentz, and now the Brazilian shoves Lentz back to the ground with 1:40 on the clock.

Round 1
Referee Leon Roberts begins the action.

Zeferino charges forward with wide hooks. Natal tries a trip, but Zeferino reverses and ends up on top. Natal looks for a heel hook, and Zeferino returns the favor, but neither middleweight can secure the hold.

A fatigued Zeferino dives on another shot midway through the frame, but Natal once again sprawls and stands, urging “The Brazilian Samurai” to join him on their feet. Zeferino responds by landing a left hook and a right straight, but neither blow hurts his foe. Natal whiffs on a spinning backfist, but Zeferino cannot capitalize, instead flopping to his back. Natal follows him into his guard and works some minor ground-and-pound for the final 30 seconds of round two.
