Lina Lansberg vs. Lucie Pudilova

Round 1

Lansberg takes the center of the cage and then quickly presses forward to clinch Pudilova against the fence. Pudilova uses an underhook to try and separate, but Lansberg gives her a few knees to the body before corralling her again. After a minute in the clinch without much action, referee Neil Hall brings the fighters back to the center. Lansberg looks to reestablish the position, but this time Pudilova is ready to reverse, then escape. Now it's Pudilova grabbing the Thai plum, sending knees up the middle. Punches from the long Czech fighter have reddened the face of Lansberg, who now finds herself backed up to the wall. Lansberg reverses and hits Pudilova with a standing elbow, tries a trip but has it blocked. 10-9 Pudilova.

Round 2

Lansberg fires an early high kick and then comes back to the clinch, grinding Pudilova against the fence to negate the Czech fighter's length advantage. They fight off the wall, Lansberg connects with a right hand but gets spun against the wall. The clinch is short-lived, and now it's Lansberg pressing forward, flicking jabs in Pudilova's face and mixing in a few kicks to the body. Pudilova backs up Lansberg to the wall and scores with a few punches from range, sending Lansberg shooting for a takedown. Lansberg completes the double-leg and postures up in Pudilova's open guard with 80 seconds left in the round. A few good elbows get through for the "Elbow Queen," who resists Pudilova's attempt to elevate and finishes the round on top. 10-9 Lansberg.

Round 3

Lansberg steps into the pocket with a level elbow, backs up and pops the incoming Pudilova with a stiff jab. Pudilova switches to circling the outside, giving Lansberg the center of the cage. Lansberg shoots for a single-leg, gets pushed away and hit with a one-two from Pudilova, but the Swede comes back for another go at the takedown. Pudilova defends well with her back on the wall, delivering elbows to the side of Lansberg's head which open up a significant cut. Blood is leaking out of Lansberg's face, coloring the canvas as she gives up on the takedown attempt. Pudilova lands more punches from range before Lansberg comes back for another shot. Lansberg tries a trip, winds up in a rear waistlock but can't hold on to Pudilova, who spins away and then attacks with long pairs of punches. Lansberg is in trouble, bloody and lumped up as Pudilova tries to polish her off with strikes. Lansberg's right eye is nearly swollen shut as she lurches forward, trying to mount some offense of her own, but Pudilova is doing well to sidestep the attacks and return fire. 10-9 Pudilova (29-28 Pudilova).

The Official Result

Lina Lansberg def. Lucie Pudilova via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) R3 5:00

Scott Askham vs. Brad Scott

Round 1

Scott pushes forward with jabs but can't find the southpaw Askham with his early range-finding punches. Low kicks from Scott are landing, however, and a few shots nearly chop the lead leg out from underneath 6-foot-3 Englishman. Askham fires back with a solid body kick, but Scott scores the first big shot of the bout with a straight right hand that puts Askham on his back. Askham uses his long legs to fend off Scott as "Bear" attempts to follow up with more punches. Askham jumps back to his feet and connects with a plunging left hand that reddens the nose of Scott, followed by another body kick. It's still Scott on the advance, however, backing up Askham to the fence, where Scott finds a home for some more right hands. The middleweights tie up on the wall with 60 seconds left, Scott on the outside, Askham not giving him much space to work. Askham grabs the Thai plum and drives a hard knee into Scott's ribs. Scott fails on a takedown attempt but still finishes the round pressing Askham against the wall. 10-9 Scott.

Round 2

Scott comes forward with pressure again at the start of round two, but Askham is on his bike this time, backpedaling to evade the shorter man's punches. Askham hits a trip in the center of the cage but can't keep Scott on the mat, and they middleweights are back on their feet with three minutes left in the round. Askham is working better from range here, going to the body and head of Scott with long kicks, but he comes down awkwardly on his right leg and now inches backward gingerly. Scott attacks with a few leg kicks but mostly trades punches with Askham in the final minute of the round, and it's Askham finishing the round with a head kick and a hard left hand. 10-9 Askham.

Round 3

Askham comes out in the orthodox stance as the final round begins, but he soon switches back to southpaw to kick at Scott's ribs. Scott comes forward, throwing heavy right hands over the top, but Askham is doing well to avoid damage and now pops Scott with a winding jab. Scott is finding his range with combinations, going body-head on Askham here in the latter half of the round. Askham answers with a body kick, gets through with a few punches of his own, but isn't matching Scott for volume at this stage. Inside the final minute now, Askham backs up Scott with a left hand, but it's Scott who gets the last word with his right. 10-9 Scott (29-28 Scott).

Packalen tries to press forward on the shorter man, but Diakiese is waiting with a cracking right hand that lands flush to the jaw. Packalen goes stiff immediately and does a slow-motion fall to the ground as referee Neil Hall rushes in for the stoppage. Marc Diakiese scores the evening's first finish with a highlight-reel knockout.

The Official Result

Leon Edwards vs. Vicente Luque

Round 1

The southpaw Edwards lands the first hard shot of the fight with a cracking left hook to the chin of Luque. It's the Brazilian pressing out from the center, moving Edwards around the outside and now coming inside for a takedown. Edwards is back on his feet within seconds but is still pressed against the cage with over-unders. Edwards lands a quick knee, stuffs a level-change attempt from Luque, and now the welterweights stall out in the clinch. Referee Grant Waterman calls for action, but before he can separate them, the fighters break and come back to the center. Edwards lands a body kick, has a left high kick blocked and tries a trip in the middle of the cage. Luque blocks the trip and comes out on top, passing to side control with 80 seconds on the clock. Luque looks to be setting up a D'arce choke, but Edwards shrimps underneath and breaks it up. Luque moves to north-south position, but Edwards rolls to his knees and rides out the final 15 seconds. 10-9 Edwards.

Round 2

Edwards gets Luque up against the fence but can't do anything with a front headlock. After clearing his head, Luque spins to the outside position and now drops to try another takedown up against the wall. The welterweights hit a stalemate and are separated by referee Waterman, and soon after, Edwards lands a thudding body kick. Edwards steps inside and completes the trip takedown this time, landing on top in Luque's half guard. The ref calls for progress quickly; Edwards tries to advance his position, but it's not enough for Waterman, who brings the fighters back to their feet. Edwards quickly goes after another trip, but it's blocked and he winds up holding Luque against the cage, landing a few inside knees in the closing moments. 10-9 Edwards.

Round 3

Luque comes straight at Edwards, backing up the Englishman to the wall, but "Rocky" is waiting with a right hand. Luque digs an underhook and presses Edwards to the wall; Edwards spins to take Luque's back in a standing rear waistlock, but Luque reverses just as quickly and drops to try a single-leg. Edwards hits the switch and goes to the back again, this time riding Luque down to his knees. Luque gets back to his feet, but it's all Edwards in the ensuing striking exchange, picking at the Brazilian with quick punches up against the fence. Down to the final 90 seconds now, Edwards steps inside jams Luque against the wall. Luque ties up Edwards' hands, but Edwards clears his left and thumps Luque with a few short punches. Luque separates with half a minute to fight and presses forward on Edwards with combinations. Edwards is eating some punches here, but now he changes levels and drives Luque to the mat with one last takedown. 10-9 Edwards (30-27 Edwards).

Round 1

Omielanczuk reddens the nose of Johnson with his first punch of the fight. The Polish fighter swings forward with another flurry of punches, misses and grazes Johnson's cup with an inside leg kick. Johnson says he's OK and slaps hands with Omielanczuk, and the big men continue without a pause. Johnson presses forward now, catches Omielanczuk with an uppercut, then a jab before grabbing for a single-leg against the fence. The pace slows now, Johnson abandoning the shot in favor of hugging Omielanczuk to the wall. Johnson swings a few right hands to the head of Omielanczuk, threatens to change levels again but ultimately remains in the clinch. Referee Marc Goddard breaks up the fighters with 70 seconds left in the opening round. Johnson swings forward on Omielanczuk again and shoots a double at the wall, but again he's blocked on the takedown try. Johnson keeps Omielanczuk on the wall and works short knees to the legs. 10-9 Johnson.

Round 2

Johnson wastes little time in driving forward with punches, backing up Omielanczuk to the wall and then initiating another clinch. Omielanczuk is sporting a cut underneath his left eye as he fights off Johnson's advances in the tie-up. Johnson exits with an elbow, and now it's Omielanczuk stepping forward to land a left hand. Johnson comes back to clinch and drops for another takedown, but his mouthguard falls out and the action is paused. They resume in the clinch and, seconds later, Johnson completes his takedown at the foot of the fence. Johnson lands a few punches from top position before Omielanczuk climbs back to his feet. Johnson finishes the round holding Omielanczuk against the cage. 10-9 Johnson.

Round 3

Same as in prior rounds, Johnson rushes toward Omielanczuk, backing him up against the fence and then holding him there with an underhook. Johnson drives knee strikes into Omielanczuk's legs as referee Marc Goddard stands nearby, calling for action. Omielanczuk reverses to the outside and drops to try a double-leg of his own, but Johnson soon retakes the outside position. Referee Goddard breaks up the fighters with half the round remaining. Johnson sticks a hard jab that sends Omielanczuk shooting for a takedown. Johnson blocks the shot, jams Omielanczuk against the wall and holds him there with a bodylock. There's not enough action for ref Goddard, who separates the heavyweights for the final minute. Omielanczuk lands a left hand and drops to his knees to attempt a double-leg, switches to a single but is spun against the fence by Johnson. 10-9 Johnson (30-27 Johnson).

Francimar Barroso vs. Darren Stewart

Round 1

Stewart hits an early takedown in the center of the cage and stands over the prone Barroso, allowing the Brazilian to stay on his back for a few seconds before asking him to stand. A low kick from Stewart strays to the cup of Barroso, and referee Leon Roberts pauses the action to give Barroso time to recover. Barroso is ready in a few seconds, and when the action resumes, Stewart digs an underhook and puts "Bodao" up against the fence. Stewart backs up to throw a few punches, comes back to the clinch and hurls knees at the body of Barroso. The 205ers separate with 1:45 on the clock, swing a few punches with neither man gaining a clear advantage, and now wind up back in the clinch. Barroso hits a late trip takedown; Stewart begins to stand but finishes the round with Barroso draped all over him. 10-9 Stewart.

Round 2

Barroso scores the early takedown this time, tries to take Stewart's back but can't secure the position before the Englishman stands up against the fence. Keeping a rear waistlock, Barroso dumps "The Dentist" back to the mat. Stewart stands, gets taken down again, then the sequence repeats. Back up comes Stewart... and back down goes Stewart, his body still controlled by Barroso with the bodylock. Stewart finally gets up and keeps his footing, but Barroso keeps him pressed against the wall until the 90-second mark, when referee Leon Roberts separates the fighters. It's a plodding pace in the striking department, Stewart backing up incrementally while Barroso follows from the center, neither man really letting go with any punches. Barroso lands a body kick, caught by Stewart, but it's Barroso taking advantage of the ensuing clinch as he brings the fight back to the wall. Stewart lands a short elbow in close quarters and sends Barroso back to his stool with a cut above the right eye. 10-9 Barroso.

Round 3

After a slow start to the round, the light heavyweights wind up in a brief Frye-Takayama collar tie, each slugging away with punches on the inside. Barroso drops to try a takedown, defended well by Stewart, but the Brazilian gets Stewart pressed against the fence as a result. Stewart creates enough space to deliver a knee to the body, and now the fighters separate with just about half a round left to fight. Stewart pushes forward now, backing up Barroso with a body kick and a right hand. A brief clinch leads nowhere, and now inside the final 30 seconds, Stewart presses forward with tired combinations. Barroso blocks a late takedown try and throws a left high kick at the buzzer, but it's blocked by Stewart. 10-9 Barroso (29-28 Barroso).

Joseph Duffy vs. Reza Madadi

Round 1

Madadi lands an early knee before level-changing into a double-leg takedown at the base of the fence. Duffy tries to post and work his way up the wall, but just as he does, Madadi lifts and slams him back to the ground. Duffy springs up as his back hits the mat and reverses expertly to top position, now working right to left across Madadi's body from half guard. Duffy passes to side control, but Madadi sneaks a knee inside to reclaim half guard, then full guard as the lightweights enter the final two minutes of round one. Duffy gets through with a pair of clean elbows to the face of Madadi, who begins fishing for a guillotine from the bottom. Just before the end of the round, Duffy postures up to land a huge elbow strike which opens up a nasty gash on Madadi's forehead. 10-9 Duffy.

Round 2

Madadi's cut is still leaking as round two begins, quickly coating the face of "Mad Dog" with blood. Duffy backs up the Swede with body kicks, drawing a grin from Madadi, who whiffs on a spinning backfist as he comes back to the center of the cage. Madadi drops for a single-leg, stuffed by Duffy who keeps Madadi at range now with long jabs. Madadi is pawing at his face, constantly wiping blood out of his eyes, his back being kept near the wall by Duffy's forward pressure. Madadi hits a takedown with 75 seconds on the clock, but Duffy is back on his feet 10 seconds later. Duffy blocks the next shot and hits Madadi with a knee on the exit. 10-9 Duffy.

Round 3

Duffy brings the pressure for Madadi, backing up the bloodied fighter to the fence with long punches. Madadi tries to fire back, can't get much going and instead shoots for a takedown. Madadi drives Duffy to the other side of the cage with the shot, but as soon as they hit the wall, Duffy reverses to the outside position. They separate with under three minutes left to fight and Duffy goes upstairs with a slapping left high kick. Duffy is marching Madadi around the cage here, keeping his fists in the Swede's face as they circle. A left hook, right hook, now an uppercut slam into Madadi in the closing moments of the fight, closing out a strong performance from Duffy. 10-9 Duffy (30-27 Duffy).

The Official Result

Joseph Duffy def. Reza Madadi via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) R3 5:00

Arnold Allen vs. Makwan Amirkhani

Round 1

Amirkhani scores an early takedown but can't keep Allen on the mat, and the featherweights stand to clinch on the fence. Amirkhani hurls Allen back to the ground and angles for a Japanese necktie, but Allen bellies out and clears his neck. Amirkhani drops to guard, now hunting for a guillotine, then goes to his knees and holds Allen in a front headlock. Allen sweeps to top position and begins peppering Amirkhani with ground-and-pound, but Amirkhani soon rolls free and scrambles back to his feet. Inside two minutes left in the opening round now, Amirkhani takes down Allen once more at the fence. Allen digs an underhook and stands, then holds Amirkhani against the cage. Amirkhani reverses to the outside, then Allen again, and the pace slows as referee Neil Hall calls for action. The ref splits up the fighters and Allen comes lunging at Amirkhani, running into a right hand. Amirkhani slips in the final seconds and has to backpedal away from an attacking Allen. 10-9 Amirkhani.

Round 2

Amirkhani takes down Allen quickly again, putting the Englishman on his seat at the foot of the fence. Hunting for a D'arce choke, Amirkhani wraps up Allen's neck and tries to roll him onto his back. In the process, Allen escapes the choke, but now Amirkhani drops to guard and threatens to throw up an armbar. Allen clears his arm and now lands in top position, dropping short elbows from Amirkhani's half guard. Allen comes close to mounting but is blocked by Amirkhani with a butterfly hook. Allen gets to mount on the next try, still with more than three minutes left in the round. Amirkhani does well to avoid much damage before working back to his feet. He shoots for a takedown and floors Allen in the center of the cage, aided by Allen who attempts and quickly loses a choke as he drops to guard. Amirkhani works from half guard but can't mount much in the way of offense as Allen wraps up from the bottom. Allen throws up his legs for an armbar but can't get any purchase in the closing seconds. 10-9 Allen.

Round 3

Allen bounces forward on Amirkhani, who shoots a long double and gets sprawled on by the Englishman. Allen plunges a long left hand down the center but can't follow up as Amirkhani turns his back and dashes off to separate. Amirkhani drops for a single, switches to a double, now to a rear waistlock as he holds Allen up against the fence. Amirkhani sits and tries to pull Allen to the ground with him, but Allen jumps back up and lands a throw of his own. Amirkhani jumps up, shoots and gets sprawled on again by Allen. The ensuing scramble finds Allen landing on top, but Amirkhani sweeps just seconds later. The pace slows on the ground and referee Neil Hall orders the fighters back to their feet with 80 seconds to go. Allen gets an underhook and tries to trip Amirkhani to the ground as they grapple on the fence, but Amirkhani keeps his footing. Allen rips him off the fence and finally completes the trip with 20 seconds to go. Allen mounts in the final seconds, drops a few punches and then takes Amirkhani's back for a last-ditch rear-naked choke attempt. 10-9 Allen (29-28 Allen).

Round 1

Vera puts a hard kick on Pickett's right flank and follows up with a right hand. Pickett dives for a double-leg against the fence and slams Vera to the canvas with authority, landing in side control. Pickett stays tight on top, but Vera rotates underneath, rolls to his knees and scrambles to his feet. Vera scores with a few inside leg kicks but takes a swiping right hand across the face. The bantamweights spend the middle portion of the round circling, neither man gaining the upper hand. With 90 seconds left, Vera comes sailing at Pickett with a flying knee and gets clubbed to the ground by Pickett's left hand. Vera recovers and springs up quickly, then shuts down a takedown attempt from Pickett and gives the Englishman a hard elbow to the face on the break. Vera grabs the Thai clinch and drives a knee upstairs. Vera flicks out a few left high kicks, blocked by Pickett, who catches Vera leaning in and lands a right hand behind the head as the round ends. 10-9 Pickett.

Round 2

Vera catches Pickett coming forward and times a hard knee, then goes downstairs with a leg kick. Pickett narrowly avoids a jump knee but eats Vera's left hand behind it. One minute in, Pickett shoots in on a double at the fence, tries to lift and slam Vera, but the Ecuadorian keeps his balance. Pickett's second attempt yields the takedown, and now he postures up to land short body punches in Vera's butterfly guard. Vera closes his guard as he and Pickett continue to grapple at the base of the wall. Vera kicks Pickett away and lands an upkick to the head; Pickett seems to think the strike was illegal, but referee Grant Waterman tells him to fight on. The fighters come back to their feet with 70 seconds on the clock. Vera works the legs of Pickett with hard kicks and narrowly misses with a spinning kick at the horn. 10-9 Pickett.

Round 3

Pickett swings forward on Vera with punches, while the taller man tries to keep "One Punch" at bay with long kicks to the midsection. Vera chops at Pickett with an inside leg kick, follows with a cracking left hook, but Pickett eats it and marches forward. Vera tries to clinch but gets socked away by Pickett with power punches to the body and head. Vera goes to the body with a kick, eats a right from Pickett in return. Pickett swings a wide right hand, gets pushed back by a front kick. Vera takes a few steps forward and goes up top with a left high kick to the side of the head that sends Pickett crashing to the mat. Referee Waterman gives Pickett a chance to recover, but Vera knocks him senseless with follow-up hammerfists, and the ref is forced to intervene. The London crowd jeers what they feel was a premature finish in Pickett's retirement bout, but the stoppage looked justified.

The Official Result

Marlon Vera def. Brad Pickett via TKO (Head Kick and Punches) R3 3:50

Alan Jouban vs. Gunnar Nelson

Round 1

Jouban opens with a few kicks to the lead leg of Nelson, who bounces forward on the American in his wide karate stance. Nelson tries to grab hold of the next kick, sending Jouban skittering backward to the fence. The Icelander quickly closes the gap and tries to hold Jouban against the fence, but "Brahma" separates and circles out. Nelson absorbs a few more low kicks, rushes in behind a right hand and changes levels to try a trip. Jouban keeps his footing at first but eventually succumbs to the takedown, and now Nelson passes to side control on Jouban's left with just under two minutes left in the round. Jouban rolls left to prevent mount, but Nelson flattens him out and steps over to full mount. 10-9 Nelson.

Round 2

Jouban rushes Nelson with a flurry of punches but Nelson does well to keep his head off center, his arms out in front of him to deflect the punches. Nelson walks forward and unleashes a straight right that puts Jouban on wobbly legs. Nelson uses a front headlock to snap Jouban down to the mat, cinches a guillotine, drops to mount and then rolls to full mount, forcing Jouban to tap in a hurry.

The Official Result

Gunnar Nelson def. Alan Jouban via Submission (Guillotine Choke) R2 0:46

Jimi Manuwa vs. Corey Anderson

Round 1

English referee Leon Roberts is the third man in the cage for tonight's 205-pound main event. Manuwa stands flat-footed in the center of the cage, while Anderson twitches and feints, hopping around the local favorite. Manuwa takes a low kick from Anderson but counters with a left hook to the body. Anderson blocks a quick left high kick, fakes a shot and angles away. Anderson shoots in for his first takedown attempt but quickly abandons it as he's pushed away by Manuwa. The next shot is sprawled on by Manuwa, too, and the "Poster Boy" seems to have Anderson in trouble with a glancing blow to the temple. Anderson tries to mask it as he circles near the fence, but Manuwa's next shot -- a perfect left hook to the side of the head -- turns out the lights and sends Anderson tilting to the canvas. Manuwa strolls away calmly as referee Roberts dives in to rescue the downed Anderson.

The Official Result

Jimi Manuwa def. Corey Anderson via KO (Punch) R1 3:05
