Daniel Pineda vs. Robert Whiteford

Round 1

Whiteford opens with an inside leg kick, answered by Pineda with a kick to the body. The featherweights move into the pocket to throw hard punches, Whiteford landing to the body and Pineda upstairs. Another loud body kick from Pineda draws an “ooh” from the partisan crowd, and “The Pit” moves in to clinch. Whiteford reverses and shoves Pineda against the fence, working some foot stomps and short knees to the body. Whiteford’s looking for a trip but Pineda defends well and peppers the Scot with palm strikes. Referee Don Turnage tells the fighters to work off the cage, and Whiteford completes his takedown. Pineda scrambles right back up, only to be dragged down again. Whiteford tries to advance past Pineda’s butterfly guard, can’t, and instead hits Pineda with a knee to the gut on the way up. Referee Turnage finally restarts them with 1:40 on the clock. Whiteford stays on the outside, absorbing a couple leg kicks before ducking inside to pop Pineda with a left hand. Another left gets Whiteford inside and he follows up with a short right hook. Pineda looks to attack in the last 10 seconds, misses with a jumping knee and spinning kick.

Pineda keeps marching forward, grinning at Whiteford, who hits him with another shin-to-face kick. Whiteford clinches Pineda on the fence, works a couple knees to the legs before Pineda rolls underneath, grabbing at Whiteford’s legs. Whiteford comes down to defend as Pineda leans back, trying to finish a heel hool. Whiteford smiles and puts a thumb up, then yanks his leg free and takes side control.

Forte picks at Trevino with punches until Trevino explodes out and up. Trevino’s time on his feet is short-lived, as Forte spins him back to the mat and looks to take back control.

Story is dazed, moving backward, and now Gastelum dumps him to the ground. Story slips out from underneath and leaps on the kneeling Gastelum’s back. Both hooks in, Story pulls Gastelum backward and begins fishing for the rear-naked choke with two minutes to work. Gastelum fights off Story’s hands, tries to flip around and take top position, but Story is keeping him wrapped up. Gastelum peels off one hook and turns over with 45 seconds left. Story stands right up and Gastelum follows, and they’re throwing with 30 seconds to go. Gastelum lands a hard left, takes a leg kick, presses in on Story against the fence.
