Maciej Jewtuszko vs. Curt Warburton
Warburton defeats Jewtuszko by unanimous decision (29-29, 29-28, 29-28).
After a slow start, a takedown and some ground-and-pound gave Warburton the first round. In the second round, Jewtuszko opened up on his feet a bit more, but was unable to keep the fight standing, which likely gave Warburton the second round as well. A desperate Jewtuszko came out strong again in the third round, but was unable to get the finish that he needed after losing the first two rounds.
Mark Hunt vs. Chris Tuchscherer
Hunt defeats Tuchscherer by technical knockout at 1:41 of the second round.
Heading into this fight, it was obvious that Tuchscherer needed to take Hunt down if he was going to win. Before Tuchscherer could do so, Hunt dropped him with a right, but decided not to pounce on the opportunity to finish the fight. In the second round, Hunt, a former K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, landed a right uppercut that sent Tuchscherer to the canvas for a second time. This time there was no need for Hunt to follow up as the referee called a stop to the fight.
Tiequan Zhang vs. Jason Reinhardt
Zhang defeats Reinhardt by submission at 0:48 of the first round.
Reinhardt payed for his early aggression as Zhang countered beautifully multiple times. Shaken, Reinhardt attempted a sloppy takedown, which allowed Zhang to jump on the opportunity for a guillotine choke. Reinhardt tried to fight off the submission until the very last second. Soon after tapping, Reinhardt went limp.
Anthony Perosh vs. Tom Blackledge
Perosh defeats Blackledge by submission at 2:45 of the first round.
It wasn't pretty for Perosh early on in this fight. It was obvious that Perosh was desperate to get this fight to the ground, but his initial takedown attempts were extremely sloppy and telegraphed. Finally, Perosh was able to clinch with Blackledge and used a trip to take the fight to the ground. Once there, Perosh eventually tansitioned to a full mount and Blackledge was forced to give up his back. This allowed Perosh to lock in a fight-ending rear naked choke.
Nick Ring vs. Riki Fukuda
Ring defeats Fukuda by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
After a very close first round, Fukuda began to find increased success with his takedowns. Fukuda appeared to have won the second and third rounds. However, the judges apparently gave one of the later rounds to Ring. Fukuda appeared speechless as the decision was announced and Joe Rogan bit his lip as best he could. According to Compustrike, Fukuda had a 26-11 edge in power strikes landed and had 5 takedowns.
James Te-Huna vs. Alexander Gustafsson
Gustafsson defeats Te-Huna by submission at 4:27 of the first round.
Te-Huna started the fight strong with a takedown. However, Te-Huna wasn't able to do a whole lot with the position and appeared to slow down as the round progressed. Eventually, Gustafsson took Te-Huna's back and attempted a rear naked choke. Te-Huna fought of an initial submission attempt, but was forced to tap due to a second one. Tehuna had a 26-11 edge in total strikes landed before getting submitted.
Ross Pearson vs. Spencer Fisher
Pearson defeats Fisher (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)
Fisher was the more aggressive fighter in the first round, but Pearson landed on some powerful counter strikes. Fisher scored the lone takedown of the first round, which may have given him the slight nod on the scorecards. Pearson looked much stronger in the second round with several kicks to the body and landed more power punches than Fisher. In the third round, Pearson scored three takedowns. With the striking in round three being somewhat even, Pearson's takedowns in the last round ended up making the difference on the scorecards.
