2 of 13

    A left hook scores for dos Santos. Mir begins utilizing leg kicks to keep distance, but dos Santos lands with a counter left hook. Mir answers with a straight left. The champion fires back with a jab and right hook to the body.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 dos Santos

     

    Round 2

    A straight right lands for dos Santos and Mir gets dropped by a hook one minute into the round. The champion allows Mir to stand, though.

    After claiming to be poked in the eye by dos Santos, Mir lands a kick to the body of the champion. Mir goes back to leg kicks, but he has one countered by a straight right, which results in a knockdown. The champion follows to the ground and lands some punches before backing away to his feet. Mir is slow to move and allows Mir to land a standing hammerfist, which prompts referee Herb Dean to stop the fight.

     

    dos Santos defeats Mir by technical knockout at 3:04 of the second round.

Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva

3 of 13

    Round 1

    Cain Velasquez catches a kick and immediately takes the fight to the ground. From the half-guard, Velasquez opens up a nasty cut above the eye of Antonio Silva. The blood is pouring like a faucet and the fight is briefly stopped to see if the Brazilian should be allowed to continue.

    After the doctor gives his approval for Silva to continue, Velasquez continues to pound away from the top position. The former champion causes more blood to flow from Silva face before finishing the fight with heavy punches from half-guard. 

     

    Velasquez defeats Silva by technical knockout (punches) at 3:36 of the first round.

Roy Nelson vs. Dave Herman

4 of 13

    Round 1

    Dave Herman steps forward and lands a knee to the body and follows up with push kick. Roy Nelson fires back with an overhand right and sends Herman to the canvas in a heap. The fight is over and that is a leading candidate for Knockout of the Night.

    Nelson defeats Herman by knockout (punch) at 0:51 of the first round.

     

Stipe Miocic vs. Shane del Rosario

5 of 13

    Round 1

    Shane del Rosario lands a kick to the body. Miocic walks through another kick and lands a straight right. Another right right lands for Miocic, del Rosario continues kicking at the body and legs of Miocic. A jab-uppercut combination lands for Miocic and he follows up with a left hook to the body with three minutes left in the round.

    The kicks of del Rosario are beginning to leave a welt on the body of Miocic. A counter-punch lands for del Rosario and causes Miocic to stumble. Miocic recovers, but del Rosario blasts his opponent with a left hand.

    A left uppercut-right hook combination scores for del Rosario. Miocic scores a late takedown, but he allows del Rosario to stand before the end of the round.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 del Rosario.

     

    Round 2

    The former kickboxing champion del Rosario opens the second frame with leg kicks, but Miocic scores a takedown much earlier in this round. Miocic softens del Rosario up with hammerfists and finishes the fight with elbows from half-guard.

     

    Miocic defeats del Rosario by technical knockout (elbows) at 3:14 of the second round. 

     

Stefan Struve vs. Lavar Johnson

6 of 13

    Round 1

    Lavar Johnson rushes forward and lands a right hook to the body and clinches along the fence. Stefan Struve pulls guard to take advantage of Johnson's sub-par ground game and quickly locks up an armbar. Johnson taps immediately and appears to have injured his arm.

    Struve defeats Johnson by submission (armbar) at 1:05 of the first round.

Diego Brandao vs. Darren Elkins

7 of 13

    Round 1

    Diego Brandao feints a superman punch and lands a leg kick. Darren Elkins looks for a takedown, but Brandao uses a kimura attempt to reverse positions. Elkins attempts a kimura of his own and forces Brandao to back 

    The Ultimate Fighter winner Brandao sprawls to defend a takedown and drops Elkins with a flying knee with three minutes left in the round. Elkins stands, but Brandao lands three heavy right hands, of which the third drops Elkins for a second time.

    B/R scores the round 10-8 Brandao.

     

    Round 2

    Elkins scores with a counter left hook and lands a straight right to the temple of Brandao. The Brazilian answers with a stepping back elbow, but Elkins fires right back with a straight right.

    Brandao slips on a kick attempt and allows Elkins to take the top position. Elkins remains on top for the rest of the round and does some significant damage by posturing up and landing pucnhes toward the end of the stanza. 

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Elkins (19-18 Brandao).

     

    Round 3

    After landing some straight punches, Elkins takes the fight to the ground early in the final frame. Elkins has much more gas left in the tank than Brandao and moves to full-mount with less than three minutes left in the fight. 

    Brandao regains his guard, but Elkins attacks with a guillotine attempt. Brandao escapes and reverses positions with one minute to work from the top. The Greg Jackson-trained fighter postures up and lands a right hand at the end of the fight, but he probably didn't do enough to steal the round on the scorecards.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Elkins (28-28 Draw).

     

    Elkins defeats Brandao by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

Edson Barboza vs. Jamie Varner

8 of 13

    Round 1

    Edson Barboza opens the bout with thudding leg kicks, but Jamie Varner catches a head kick and takes the fight to the ground. The Brazilian is able to escape without taking much damage, though, and he goes back to landing leg kicks.

    However, the former WEC champion fires back with his right hand multiples times. After securing a takedown, Varner lands several more heavy right hands as Barboza works his wy back to his feet. The blows send the Brazilian back to the canvas, where he is unable to defend himself and suffers the first loss of his career.

     

    Varner defeats Barboza by technical knockout (punches) at 3:23 of the first round.

Jason Miller vs. C.B. Dollaway

9 of 13

    Round 1

    C.B. Dollaway's jab is working early, but Jason "Mayhem" Miller lands straight right and looks for a guillotine choke. Dollaway escapes the submission, but Miller works his way back to his feet

    Miller lands a jab-straight right combination and a kick to the body. "Mayhem" misses with a punch and his knee, which is wrapped up, buckles awkwardly. Dollaway takes Miller's back and eventually moves to full-mount before the end of the round.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Dollaway.

     

    Round 2

    Once again, Dollaway starts the round with his jab. A right hook lands for Miller and another right hook leaves Dollaway on wobbly legs. Miller looks to follow Dollaway to the ground, but Dollaway is able to scramble and take the top position.

    Miller uses the fence to stand, but Dollaway takes the fight back to the ground with two minutes remaining in the frame. Seemingly unable to stand without the help of the fence, Miller spends the rest of the round on his back.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Dollaway (20-18 Dollaway).

     

    Round 3

    Another right hand lands early for Miller, but Dollaway is able to take the fight to the ground quickly. In an extremely uneventful round, a tired Dollaway takes an injured Miller's back and lands punches without doing much damage. 

    Still, Dollaway dominated the round, as Miller hardly attempted to make his way back to his feet or escape his opponent's back mount.

    B/R scores the round 10-8 Dollaway (30-26 Dollaway).

     

    Dollaway defeats Miller by unanimous decusion (29-28, 30-26, 29-28).

     

Dan Hardy vs. Duane Ludwig

10 of 13

    Round 1

    Needing a win to avoid a fifth consecutive loss, Dan Hardy eats a Duane Ludwig right to open the fight. Hardy clinches takes the fight to the cage, but it is Ludwig who is landing knees to the body with his back against the fence

    On the break, an elbow-left hook combination land for Hardy, who also scores with a leg kick-left hook combination. Ludwig lands two nice knees from the clinch with two minutes left in the first round, but Hardy drops Ludwig with a lead left hook and finishes the fight with elbows on the ground.

    After taking nearly a year away from competition, Hardy has saved his UFC career with a knockout victory over a former professional kickboxer in Ludwig.

     

    Hardy defeats Ludwig by knockout (punch and elbows) at 3:51 of the first round.

Jacob Volkmann vs. Paul Sass

11 of 13

    Round 1

    Jacob Volkmann looks to take the fight to the ground early. Apparently, that's also where Paul Sass wants to go, as he pulls guard and looks for an omoplata. The 31-year-old Volkmann quickly slides his arm free, but it doesn't take long for Sass to attack with another submission attempt.

    The 23-year-old Sass traps the right arm and locks up a triangle. The Englishman cranks on Volkmann's left arm, which appears to be injured, and earns the submission win. With his 12th career submission win, Sass is now undefeated in 13 professional fights. 

     

    Sass defeats Volkmann by submission (triangle armbar) at 1:54 of the first round.

Kyle Kingsbury vs. Glover Teixeira

12 of 13

    Round 1

    A left hook lands early for UFC newcomer Glover Teixeira, who has gone undefeated since March 2005. Kyle Kingsbury clinches briefly and lands a knee. Teixeira separates and lands two big right hands before eating another knee in the clinch.

    After quickly breaking out of the clinch again, Teixeira lands a right hook-left uppercut combination. A heavy uppercut drops Kingsbury, who covers up and give up full-mount. After doing some more damage with punches, Teixeira easily locks up an arm triangle choke and forces a tap from Kingsbury.

     

    Teixeira defeats Kingsbury by submission (arm triangle choke) at 1:53 of the first round.

Mike Brown vs. Daniel Pineda

13 of 13

    Round 1

    The 36-year-old former WEC champion Mike Brown opens the UFC 146 action with a right hook. Another right hook lands for Brown, who follows the strike up with a left hook to the chin of Daniel Pineda.  

    A Pineda uppercut stuns Brown, who shoots in for a takedown and gets it. Brown loses positioning, though, and allows Pineda to land on top. Brown stands and looks for a single-leg takedown, but he lets it go and lands a right hand with two minutes left in the round.

    Pineda answers with a leg kick and left hook. With one minute left in the round, Brown scores with body kick and stiff jab. Pineda lands an inside leg kick and shoots in for a takedown attempt, but Brown counters and tosses Pineda to the ground, where the fighters remain until the end of the round.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Brown.

     

    Round 2

    Both fighters swing and land hooks early. Pineda lands an uppercut and scores a takedown inside the first minute of the round. Brown escapes quickly and slams Pineda to the canvas. The American Top Team product moves to north-south position, but Pineda sweeps to a front-headlock position.

    Brown stands and lands a left hand. Along the fence, Brown lands knees to the body of Pineda. A right hook lands for Brown and the veteran works the body of his much younger opponent. After separating, Brown ducks a superman punch and lands a knee to the body.

    Pineda lands a leg kick-jab combination, but Brown is able to drag the fight to the ground despite slipping shortly before. Brown finishes the round with an elbow and big right hands from the top.

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Brown (20-18 Brown).

     

    Round 3

    Pineda opens the final round with a leg kick. Brown shoots in for a takedown and drops Pineda with a knee to the body as he returns to his feet. Brown follows to the ground and maintains the top position for a few minutes while landing methodical ground-and-pound.

    With under two minutes left in the fight, Pineda reverses Brown and secures a body triangle from his opponent's back. In all likelihood, Pineda will need to finish the fight from this position to extend his current winning streak to eight.

    However, Brown is able to survive to the final horn, which should be enough for him to earn his second straight victory. 

    B/R scores the round 10-9 Pineda (29-28 Brown).

     

    Brown defeats Pineda by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
