Oli Thompson vs. Shawn Jordan

Martin Kampmann defeated Thiago Alves by submission (guillotine choke) at 4:12 of the third round.
In an incredible come-from-behind submission, Kampmann defeated Alves to pick up his second straight victory and take a big step toward the top of the 170-pound division.
Alves was caught by a front kick early in the fight, but he recovered quickly and mounted Kampmann for much of the latter portion of the first round. From that point forward, Alves gained confidence and landed most of the significant strikes in the second and third rounds.
Near the end of the fight, Alves appeared to rock Kampmann. Then, the Brazilian made an ill-advised decision to take the fight to the ground and was caught in a guillotine choke by the Xtreme Couture product.
Had Kampmann not locked up that choke, he likely would have lost via decision for the third time in four fights.
Joseph Benavidez defeated Yasuhiro Urushitani by technical knockout (punches) at 0:11 of the second round.
After nearly finishing Urushitani with a rear-naked choke in the first round, Benavidez put an exclamation point on his performance with an early knockout in the second frame.
In a much more decisive victory than Demetrious Johnson's win over Ian McCall in the other flyweight semifinal, Benavidez controlled Urushitani on the ground and was patient on his feet.
In 17 career fights, the 27-year-old Benavidez has only been defeated by current 135-pound champion Dominick Cruz. Now, he will have the chance to show he is the best 125-pound fighter in the world in a title fight against Johnson.
Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall fought to a split draw (28-29, 28-28, 29-28).
The first flyweight bout in UFC history didn't disappoint, as McCall and Johnson provided non-stop action for 15 minutes.
In a narrow decision, Johnson edged McCall by surviving a third round that was dominated by "Uncle Creepy."
"I thought I won the first two rounds," Johnson said after the fight.
Johnson may or may not have been right about that, as Compustrike determined that the amount of strikes landed by each fighter in the first two frames were separated by only one.
With the victory, Johnson moves onto the first 125-pound title fight in UFC history and will meet Joseph Benavidez.
Costa Philippou defeated Court McGee by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
Philippou's work with coach Ray Longo payed some serious dividends in his third straight victory at UFC on FX 2.
The 32-year-old came out with excellent footwork and powerful uppercuts, which—in addition to his takedown defense—led to a decision win over McGee.
McGee made a late bid for a comeback, but he wasn't able to score a finish in the final frame to make up for losing the first two rounds.
James Te Huna defeated Aaron Rosa by technical knockout (punches) at 2:08 of the first round.
Competing in his home country of Australia, New Zealand-born Te Huna made a big statement at UFC on FX 2 by making quick work of a usually granite-chinned Rosa.
Once Te Huna landed his first big shot to the chin of Rosa, the 30-year-old smelled blood and started throwing bombs at his opponent.
A series of heavy shots eventually floored Rosa and forced the referee to step in and call a stop to the action.
With his win over Rosa, Te Huna has only been defeated by light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson and Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard in his past 11 fights.
Anthony Perosh defeated Nick Penner by technical knockout (punches) at 4:59 of the first round.
In his return to his home country of Australia, Perosh picked up his third straight win, matching his longest winning streak at 39 years old.
Perosh scored two takedowns in the first round. The Australian was quickly reversed after the first, but the second grounding of Penner allowed Perosh to gain full mount and end the fight with ground-and-pound.
Coming into his UFC debut against Perosh, Penner had won eight consecutive fights, but he had very little to offer his Australian opponent on Friday night.
Steven Siler defeated Cole Miller by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
In a back-and-forth brawl, Siler survived a late surge by Miller to spoil his foe's featherweight debut at UFC on FX 2.
The 25-year-old Siler opened the fight by landing leg kicks and wobbled Miller late in the first round with an uppercut-left hook combination.
Looking to avenge his brother's loss to Siler from a recent season of The Ultimate Fighter, Miller was too focused on taking the fight to the ground in the first round and it ended up costing him on the scorecards.
Though Miller lost the fight, the final round showed he could be a strong presence at 145 pounds.
"I expected a war and I got it," Siler said of Miller as an opponent.
Andrew Craig defeated Kyle Noke by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
Making his UFC debut in his opponent's home country, Craig's confidence grew as the fight moved along and the 26-year-old picked up his first victory inside the Octagon at UFC on FX 2.
Noke scored and early takedown and nearly locked up a rear-naked choke after taking Craig's back in the opening round, but the undefeated UFC newcomer was able to escape and gain some self-assurance by landing some good shots on his feet later in the frame.
"I tend to start off pretty slow," Craig said of his performance in the first round.
In the second round, Craig controlled the center of the cage and made Noke pay on a takedown attempt with elbows. After eating some big shots, Noke collapsed to his back and Craig landed some solid ground-and-pound before Noke made hsi way back to his feet.
Craig opened up his offense even more in the final stanza, landing his lead hook with frequency and securing a blow-through double-leg takedown late in the fight.
By remaining undefeated in seven career fights, Craig handed Noke his second straight defeat. With a win over the Australian, Craig becomes a promising addition to the middleweight division.
T.J. Waldburger defeated Jake Hecht by submission (armbar) at 0:55 of the first round.
With his second straight performance worthy of consideration for Submission of the Night, Waldburger earned his sixth win in his past seven fights.
After a nice trip takedown by Waldburger, Hecht attempted to use a whizzer to stand, but Waldburger smartly countered with an armbar and picked up the victory.
After losing to welterweight contender Johny Hendricks in March 2011, the 23-year-old's second straight victory put a stop to a five-fight winning streak for Hecht. With the win, Waldburger also joined the up-and-coming Che Mills as one of only three opponents to beat Hecht.
Daniel Pineda defeated Mackens Semerzier by submission (triangle armbar) at 2:05 of the first round.
After having the result of his fight with Robert Peralta overturned to a no-contest due to replays showing a clash of heads resulted in the fight's finish, Semerzier suffered his first loss inside the Octagon at UFC on FX 2.
Pineda landed a left hook midway through the opening round, which dropped Semerzier. The 26-year-old Pineda quickly moved to mount and secured a triangle choke attempt. When Semerzier defended initially, Pineda cranked on his opponent's arm and forced the tap.
With his victory over Semerzier, Pineda remained undefeated in the UFC and picked up his seventh consecutive victory.
"I belong in here," Pineda said of his start in the world's premier MMA organization.
Shawn Jordan defeated Oli Thompson by technical knockout (punches) at 3:53 of the second round.
Coming off of a victory over Lavar Johnson in his last fight, Strikeforce veteran Jordan made an impressive UFC debut in the opening bout of UFC on FX 2.
The 27-year-old heavyweight used speed to overwhelm fellow UFC newcomer Thompson, putting away the former strongman competitor with uppercuts early in the second round.
Jordan's victory brought an end to the 32-year-old Englishman's five-fight winning streak. A Greg Jackson-trained fighter, Jordan is an athletic heavyweight with a lot of potential in a division that is undergoing major changes with the influx of other Strikeforce veterans.
