Round 1
DeBlass lands a leg kick and a jab, and Fukuda presses forward to hit a double-leg against the cage after less than 30 seconds. The Grabaka product stands, dodges upkicks and goes back to DeBlass’ open guard. DeBlass works back to his feet and pops Fukuda with a straight right and a one-two. DeBlass takes a poke in the eye but recovers quickly, and then is forced to turn away a takedown attempt from Fukuda. They clinch on the fence momentarily before splitting off. DeBlass times another low kick and counters Fukuda up top with a straight right. Uppercut from Fukuda as DeBlass comes in to clinch. Fukuda blocks a head kick and drags DeBlass to the ground with a single-leg, then spends the last 30 seconds on top.

Round 2
Fukuda opens up round two by pinning DeBlass against the fence and landing knees to the body. The middleweights come off the fence to exchange jabs and crosses before Fukuda ties up again. This time it’s a Thai plum allowing Fukuda to score with knees, but DeBlass is quickly separated. Fukuda cracks DeBlass with a right hook and bullies him on the cage a little more, then splits with a kick to the body. It’s only a few seconds before Fukuda has DeBlass on the fence again, punishing the body. The sequence repeats and Fukuda lands uppercuts after the break, then a stiff combo before the end of the round.

Round 3
Fukuda is straight back to his strategy for the final frame, bullying DeBlass on the fence with dirty boxing before dragging him to the floor. DeBlass tries to stay busy from his back, but it’s tough to mount offense with Fukuda’s face buried in his chest. Fukuda postures up to drop punches to DeBlass’ body, then goes to the head. DeBlass creates space by pushing off with his legs but Fukuda won’t be pushed away. He comes back to DeBlass’ guard and DeBlass swings his legs up, possibly angling for an armbar, to no avail. Ninety seconds left and Fukuda is still holding strong on top, mashing DeBlass’ face with short punches. The action isn’t enough for referee Marc Goddard, who orders them up with 70 seconds to go. Fukuda gets inside and puts DeBlass on the fence with underhooks, then backs off and lands punches on the stationary DeBlass. The middleweights end the fight swinging.

Round 1
Urushitani stays on the outside, flicking leg kicks and then backpedaling when Lineker comes to throw punches. The leg kicks and knees keep coming from Urushitani, who is on his bike, circling and avoiding the Brazilian’s heavy punches. Lineker won’t be denied, however, and keeps pressing Urushitani toward the cage, throwing bombs at the former Shooto champ’s body and head. Lineker checks a body kick and hits the body again, then grazes with a left hook. The next left hook drops Urushitani to the canvas, but he quickly scrambles back up to finish the round on his feet.

Round 2
Lineker puts a spinning back-kick on the body of Urushitani, who continues circling the outside while Lineker stalks forward. More leg kicks from Urushitani only seem to anger Lineker, who pushes forward swinging hard hooks to Urushitani’s body and head. Lineker targeting the body now, throwing punches with abandon and forcing Urushitani to bail out. Urushitani reestablishes himself on the outside, swiping with hooks, but he’s sent to the canvas briefly again with another punch. Shortly after, Urushitani takes a finger to the eye from the outstretched, measuring hand of Lineker. The Japanese fighter recovers and the round ends without much more.

Lineker continues to pile on the punches, and midway through the round, he’s got Urushitani in trouble. A series of right hands from Lineker as he tries to put Urushitani down for good, but the Shooto export is too slippery, maneuvering around the outside and avoiding damage. Urushitani finally tries for a takedown, only to be stuffed and socked in the face with more punches. Urushitani gets back on his feet and the flyweights end in an exchange. When the horn sounds, Lineker raises his hands while a deflated Urushitani retreats to his corner.

Round 1
The rangy Caceres keeps his smaller opponent away with long jabs in the first minute, but Tezuka ducks underneath for a single-leg, switches to a double and gets Caceres on the ground. Caceres throws up his legs for a triangle but Tezuka shoves them aside and passes to side control. Tezuka has Caceres’ right arm trapped in a crucifix and ref Marc Goddard bafflingly issues a stand-up command. Tezuka quickly grabs on to Caceres’ leg, but Caceres widens his base against the fence this time. Caceres hops away from the single-leg then rushes back to take top position while Tezuka is still on the floor. Tezuka rolls for a leglock but instead gives up his back. He rolls to free himself while Caceres tries to sink hooks. Tezuka shakes Caceres off his back and eats a short elbow before the horn.

Round 2
Caceres is stringing together punches early in round two before another Tezuka takedown puts him on his back. “Bruce Leroy” stays active off his back while Tezuka is forced to play defense on top, minding Caceres’ legs and triangles. Scrambling back up, Caceres charges Tezuka with a flying knee to the body, pushing the Japanese fighter into the fence. Tezuka responds by clinching Caceres into the fence, but it doesn’t last long. Short punches and backhands from Caceres, then he socks Tezuka when the Pancrase fighter ducks inside for another takedown. Tezuka finishes the round coming forward in an awkward karate stance.

Round 3
The bantamweights trade punches for the first two minutes of the final frame, but Tezuka is pulling up short and Caceres is mixing in some kicks with his strikes now. Tezuka shoots for yet another single-leg and is again denied by the “Ultimate Fighter” alum. Caceres stays on the outside, jabbing and moving, slapping Tezuka with leg kicks. Right hooks from Caceres are finding Tezuka’s cheek every time the Japanese fighter throws. Tezuka dives on a final single-leg and gets caught in a reverse triangle choke which Caceres doesn’t have time to finish.

Hougland shoots low, gets sprawled on an takes a knee to the body from Mizugaki. The second effort from Hougland nearly puts Mizugaki on the ground, but Mizugaki gets back up and reverses to put Hougland’s back on the canvas. Hougland swings his legs for an armbar but Mizugaki pulls out and punishes the American with punches to the face. Mizugaki smashes Hougland with punches from open guard. Heavy punches from the WEC veteran now, and Hougland can only adjust his position on the ground as he’s pinned down and slugged repeatedly. Hougland tries an arm-triangle, then an armbar to slow Mizugaki’s pace in the final 40 seconds.

Ref Steve Perceval tells the bantamweights to work; Mizugaki gets busy, but not to Perceval’s satisfaction, and they’re stood up. Mizugaki stings Hougland with more punches on the feet and Hougland shoots a desperate takedown. Mizugaki pancakes him.

Round 3
Not much action to speak of in the opening 90 seconds, as Kim takes the center of the cage and keeps Thiago on the outside with his jab. Kim shoots and takes the back of Thiago standing, then keeps the position as they go to the ground in the middle of the cage. Thiago stands back up and tries to shake Kim off, and Kim seems to be losing the position as he’s riding quite high on the back. Kim somehow maintains the position even as Thiago uses his hands to peel off the body triangle. The Stun Gun won’t be shaken, and he finishes the fight strong, posturing up in mount and dropping huge double-hammerfists on the cowering Thiago.

Round 1

Silva slips, pops back up and the 205-pounders start throwing bombs. Neither man sustains any serious damage in the wild exchange before they go back to clinching. Silva scores with a knee in the clinch as he finally extracts himself, gets some space and cracks Nedkov with a huge leg kick. Nedkov wants the fight on the fence again and pushes Silva against the cage again. Nedkov doesn’t do much with the position and he gets popped with another knee as they break off. Another clinch-up from Nedkov with a minute left in the round leads to more inactivity. Once more, Silva escapes with the help of the Thai plum and knees, but Nedkov is all over him and clinches again.

A few seconds later, Nedkov has an underhook and is pushing Silva against the fence again. Silva gets out and throws another low kick which Nedkov claims is low; Perceval says to fight on. Some more fence work, no offense from Nedkov, and Silva escapes again. Silva lands some sharp leg kicks before being floored by an overhand right from Nedkov. The Bulgarian tries to pounce and pound Silva out, but Silva recovers and covers up under fire to see round three.

Silva catches Nedkov with a right hook, a short right and Nedkov turns his back to walk away. Silva gives chase and takes Nedkov down, advancing almost immediately to full mount. It’s a matter of seconds before Silva sinks in an arm-triangle choke, hops off to the side and squeezes to finish the fight. Thiago Silva ends Nedkov’s unbeaten run with a comeback submission at 1:45 of round three.

Round 1
Le takes the center of the cage and looks to counter Franklin, who swings hooks and combinations as he steps in from the outside. Franklin is looking sharper with his punches in the opening 90 seconds, with his left hand in particular finding Le’s chin. Franklin throws a leg kick outside and Le respeonds with one to the body. Another leg kick from Franklin and Le goes up top with a blistering right hand. Franklin’s lights go out immediately and he flops to the canvas face-first. Le is elated and the Macao crowd goes wild for the brutal knockout. The end comes officially at 2:17 of the first round.
