A hard outside leg kick connects for Barroso before he backpedals to evade the oncoming “Lula.” Another leg kick chops at the lead leg of Oliveira, who can’t seem to connect with long punches aimed at Barroso’s body. Barroso uses a wide left hand to swipe at Oliveira when the big man tries to get in range to strike. A frustrated Oliveira motions for the crowd to get loud as he continues to absorb kicks from the Nova Uniao product. Barrooso lands more leg kicks down the stretch.

Oliveira reverses and continues grinding on Barroso with rough knees and punches in close quarters. Barroso unsuccessfully tries an inside trip before referee Leon Roberts separates the 205ers. Barroso switches to punches now and clubs Oliveira with a pair of good right hands and an uppercut-right hook combo. Oliveira throws a kick and gets taken down at the base of the fence, where Barroso is able to land half a dozen good right hands and a knee before Oliveira escapes.

on the ground.

Round 1
G. Venga

Gaff tries to squirm and escape as Nunes pins her down from side control and roughs her up with knees to the body. Nunes gets to full mount, but the powerful Gaff simply pushes the “Lioness” off and stands.

G. Venga

Thales Leites vs. Tom Watson

Round 1
Leites closes the gap and presses Watson against the fence, then spins to take the back and drag the Brit to the floor. The Brazilian alternates between hooks-in and pushing off Watson’s thighs with his feet in an effort to gain more leverage for a rear-naked choke. Leites pins his opponent’s right arm beneath his leg and works to slip his right arm underneath Watson’s throat. He can’t get it, so Leites switches to bashing Watson with hard right hands until Watson pulls his arm free and gets Leites’ hands under control. Watson gets to his knees with 90 seconds left, but Leites is all over him, sinking in his hooks and sitting up to punch from back-mount. Watson bucks him off, stands with 50 seconds left and immediately begins throwing hands in Leites’ direction, connecting with a couple rights against the fence. They come to the center and Watson closes out the round with a series of leg kicks and one up top which is partially blocked.

Leites can’t get it, so he comes over the top and throws up an armbar on Watson’s right arm. Watson stacks up the Brazilian and tells referee Herb Dean that he’s not in danger from the submission. With 1:45 remaining, Watson pulls loose and steps back to get Leites back on his feet. Watson is throwing a variety of strikes, working knees and punches in the clinch.

Suddenly, Machida rushes forward with a barrage of straight punches that have Davis in trouble, stumbling backward agains the cage, where Machida meets him with a knee.
