Douglas Silva de Andrade vs. Zubair Tuhugov

Round 1

Andrade stays on the outside with a wide stance in the opening minute, fending off the taller man with a few outside leg kicks. About 90 seconds in, Tukhugov catches a kick and shoves the Brazilian to the floor behind a right hand. Andrade pops back to his feet and reestablishes the distance. Tukhugov is still trying to wade into the pocket, walking down Andrade from the center of the cage. A snappy spinning back fist from Tukhugov goes off Andrade’s gloves, and “D’Silva” answers with a kick to the body. Tukhugov lands a left hook which opens up a cut on Andrade’s brow. Referee Osiris Maia has the cageside doctor take a look at the damage, and Andrade is cleared to continue. Tukhugov hits a double-leg takedown with 40 seconds remaining and drops some hard elbows on Andrade’s face before the Brazilian can get up. Tukhugov pops him with a combination as they stand, worsening the cut on Andrade’s face.

Iuri Alcantara vs. Wilson Reis

Round 1

Reis clips Alcantara with a left hand behind the ear, and “Marajo” goes diving for a takedown. Reis tries to spin and take the back, but Alcantara sweeps to the top and tries to pin down the jiu-jitsu specialist. It looks like Reis will be able to escape until Alcantara settles down in half-guard and flattens him out. Reis powers his way back up 90 seconds into the round and shoves Alcantara against the cage. They come off the fence in the whizzer and Alcantara lands in full mount. Reis slips out the back and takes top position in half-guard on Alcantara’s right side. There’s not enough action for referee Osiris Maia, who curiously stands the bantamweights up halfway through the frame. Alcantara taps Reis with a couple left hooks before Reis closes the gap and tries a double-leg against the cage. Again, referee Maia is quick to call for action, and now Reis voluntarily gives up the shot. Alcantara drops Reis with a stiff right straight, then comes down on top looking for a triangle. Reis just slips out and stands up, then catches a knee and takes Alcantara to the ground in the final 20 seconds. Alcantara reverses for another takedown of his own, attaching himself to Reis’ back just before the horn.

Reis dropped a hard-fought split decision.
A big left hand from Alcantara sends Reis to the floor, and Marajo tries to punch out his injured opponent with ground-and-pound. Reis is turtling up at first, but he comes to life when he grabs hold of Alcantara and sweeps to the top. Reis quickly passes to full mount, keeping tight on top for a few seconds until he sits up to unload with punches. Alcantara is able to avoid any serious damage and eventually pushes off the cage to buck Reis out of mount. Now it’s Alcantara on top, trying to feed punches through Reis’ guard. Reis looks for a deep half-guard sweep but gets thwarted by Alcantara, who is close to mounting Reis again.

Alcantara pops Reis with a hard left hand on the ground just before Reis drives forward to put Alcantara on his seat at the base of the fence, where Reis is able to keep him for the final minute of the round.

Trinaldo continues to circle the outside as Ronson lands a body kick and steps in with a left straight. Now it’s Trinaldo scoring with leg kicks inside, taking return fire on his lead leg from the striker. Trinaldo steps into the pocket and pops Ronson with a right hook, a body shot and some stiff jabs. Trinaldo tries to pull down Ronson’s head in the Thai plum, so Ronson puts his hand on the mat and then shoots for a double-leg against the cage. Trinaldo rocks Ronson’s head with an uppercut, and the lightweights exchange knees in the clinch. One minute left in the round and Ronson seems to have regained his footing, setting up a few feet away from Trinaldo, who keeps his back to the cage.
