Nik Lentz vs. Eiji Mitsuoka


Round 1
Lentz strikes first with a knee in the clinch and follows up with a sweeping right hand. He ties up and takes Mitsuoka’s back on the feet, then drags him to the floor. Mitsuoka is quickly back on his feet, only to be slammed down again. The sequence repeats, this time with Lentz scoring with another right hand before hitting his third takedown of the first three minutes. Lentz stands and Mitsuoka pops him with an upkick. Mitsuoka tries to sweep but instead has his back taken as he stands, then gets roughly slammed down again. Lentz sinks in his hooks and flattens out Mitsuoka, first looking for a rear-naked choke and then unloading with lefts and rights. Mitsuoka isn’t offering anything in return; he taps out after about 20 unanswered strikes, but referee Tim Mills is already on his way in. Nik Lentz gets the TKO win in his featherweight debut at 3:45 of the first round.

Chico Camus vs. Dustin Pague


Round 1
Pague puts a right hand on Camus’ cheek and flicks a leg kick outside. A jab from Pague is countered by Camus, but Pague keeps coming forward and lands a nice left hook. Camus catches a kick and drives Pague to the mat, putting Pague’s head against the fence. With Camus in his full guard, Pague throws up his left leg and sneaks his ankle under his right knee for a loose triangle. Pague keeps trying to tighten it as he throws punches and elbows from the bottom. Camus is doing well to defend, posturing up in Pague’s guard to try and loosen the choke. With 90 seconds left in the round, Pague loses the triangle and Camus drops some elbows of his own. Pague is sliced open along the right side of his forehead as he tries for an unsuccessful omoplata. Camus sits up and drops a few more hammerfists just before the horn.

A nice right hand in the pocket has Hamman is backing up. Kuiper lands a strong leg kick that stumbles Hamman, then zaps the American with a big right hook.

Round 2
Kuiper instantly targets the left leg of Hamman, who is showing some serious guts by even coming out for the second round. Hamman is still throwing punches, even connecting with a decent right hand, but they don’t have much behind them. Kuiper’s shots, on the other hand, still have plenty of pop. A right hand sends Hamman backward, and Kuiper catches him with a left hook under the chin that sends Hamman to the deck at the base of the fence. Kuiper tries to polish him off, but somehow Hamman stays alive and gets back to his feet. This is getting ugly now, as Hamman is barely staying up while Kuiper connects with punch after punch. Finally, a Kuiper uppercut seals the deal and referee Adam Martinez calls a merciful end to the bout. The official time is 2:16 of the second round.

Dennis Bermudez vs. Tommy Hayden

He ducks a left hand from Bermudez and shoots, gets sprawled on and touches Bermudez with a left hook. Hayden shoots on another single-leg and Bermudez sprawls again, this time grabbing a front headlock. Bermudez spins to the back and Hayden rolls for a leg lock. They go back to the feet, where Hayden catches Bermudez coming in with a hard knee to the face.

Hayden switches to an armbar and gets dropped on his head, winding up underneath Bermudez with 70 seconds remaining in the first. They scramble back up and Bermudez stuns a leaning Hayden with a front kick. Hayden dives for a leg and Bermudez locks up a choke as he stuffs the shot.
