Round 1

Eddiva gets the better of the early exchanges, cracking Tuerxun with kicks low and high, and a hard right hook.

Another quick takedown lands for Eddiva, who is now stacking up Tuerxun and delivering knees to the body. Tuerxun gets back to his feet, only to be muscled against the cage and popped with short punches and elbows in the clinch. Eddiva gets busy with knees and more elbows in the final minute of the round.

Round 2

Eddiva lands a leg kick and ducks inside, eats an uppercut and moves back out. Tuerxun goes for a takedown now, but Eddiva defends with a sprawl against the cage and turns Tuerxun around. It’s more of the same from the end of last round, with Eddiva punishing Tuerxun on the fence with knees, elbows and now foot stomps. Tuerxun lands an elbow and a knee as he separates and shoots back in. Eddiva fends off the single-leg and comes off the cage. He slips to the ground while attempting a side kick, pops back up. Tuerxun leans over with his hands on his thighs, looking exhausted with 90 seconds left in round two. The brief respite gives Tuerxun enough energy to complete a takedown, though Eddiva immediately uses the fence to work back to his feet. After being separated by referee Jerin Valel, Eddiva hits another double-leg takedown to close out the round.

Eddiva appears to land a knee to Tuerxun’s head, but no foul is called. Tuerxun drives forward on a takedown but winds up on his knees with Eddiva on top. Tuerxun dives for an armbar, loses it and puts Eddiva in his guard. Tuerxun throws up his legs for a triangle choke, can’t it cinched and instead elbows Eddiva in the head before losing the grip. The featherweights are back on their feet with 30 seconds remaining. Eddiva shoots, can’t finish the takedown and eats an elbow. He rushes Tuerxun against the fence to deliver a few final knees before the horn.

Lee switches between stances, sticking both hands in Phan’s face and fending off a weak single-leg. It’s strong work from Lee through the first half of the round, staying in the pocket to assault Phan with a variety of strikes. A pair of shots to the head and a right hand to the breadbasket has Phan backing up. Lee keeps coming, mixing up the combinations while dodging and weaving out of the way of Phan’s comparatively slow jabs. Phan goes to the body with a left hook, then a right hand upstairs but it doesn’t seem to faze Lee. Good work from Lee down the stretch, countering Phan with more heavy leather and even a short back fist to the face.

They separate and Tokudome eats another big shot, then a barrage of punches as the lightweights move back to the fence. Again, they clinch, and again it’s Nam scoring with a huge right as they break. This time, Tokudome hits the ground and Nam follows him down to pound away from open guard. Tokudome tries an armbar, but Nam just keeps smashing away with hammer fists until he can free the limb. Tokudome is eating some nasty punches and elbows, now just trying to keep Nam from advancing past half-guard. Tokudome scoots back to the fence and gets to his feet, and now both men are throwing hands. Nam swings and misses but shuts down a takedown to wind up atop Tokudome again.

The Japanese fighter drops short right hands on his kneeling opponent as they work against the fence, Tokudome trying to get on Nam’s back. Tokudome keeps the short right hands coming; there isn’t much behind them, but they’re enough to prevent a stand-up from referee Jerin Valel. After about 40 shots, Nam tries to grab hold of Tokudome’s right hand, but Tokudome is pinning Nam’s left hand and keeping control on top. Inside the final minute, Nam turns over to get his back on the mat, and referee Valel tells Tokudome to get busy or get stood up. Tokudome obliges with elbows and forearms on top.

Tokudome shoots for and finishes another takedown near the fence, and he gets to work with more short right hands on Nam’s face. There’s blood dripping from beneath Tokudome’s right eye, and his left eye is nearly swollen shut, but he’s staying heavy on top of Nam as they work on the ground. Nam gets back to his feet midway through the round, but Tokudome immediately changes levels for another double-leg. Nam posts up this time and takes top position, shoving Tokudome to the mat near the fence. Tokudome eats a couple left hands from Nam before exploding to his feet.

Hatsu Hioki vs. Ivan Menjivar

Round 1

Menjivar catches a kick and trips Hioki to the ground. After absorbing a couple elbows to the head, Hioki scrambles up and turns the tables by jumping onto Menjivar’s back. Still standing, Menjivar tries to fight off Hioki’s hands as the “Son of Shooto” hunts for a rear-naked choke. Hioki loses his hooks and the featherweights separate after a brief clinch on the fence. Menjivar throws an overhand right which Hioki ducks to press him against the cage. They fight for position on the fence with Hioki winding up on the outside, working for a trip. He gets it and immediately flattens out Menjivar, working to advance past half-guard. Menjivar holds him in place until the 35-second mark, when Hioki goes for a rear-naked choke and then transitions to an armbar. Hioki loses the arm and instead tries for a leg lock. Menjivar counters with a heel hook attempt of his own just before time runs out.

Round 2

Menjivar is swinging heavy to start round two but pulling up short as taller man Hioki keeps his distance. Hioki switches to southpaw and flicks lazy jabs in Menjivar’s direction, hopping backward when Menjivar comes forward to engage. Menjivar gives him no option by shoving Hioki against the cage and driving a knee to the Japanese fighter’s midsection. Hioki responds by tripping Menjivar to the mat, this time moving straight to side control. Menjivar rolls over and Hioki moves to take the back, then transitions to an armbar. Menjivar tries to stack Hioki and escape, so Hioki tries a triangle. Menjivar slips out of this, too, and drops a couple heavy hammer fists on Hioki’s face before the former Sengoku champ can drive forward for another takedown. Hioki is back on top with 65 seconds remaining in the round, and he quickly passes to side control on Menjivar’s right. Hioki goes for a straight armbar from half-guard which allows Menjivar to escape before the end of the round.

Menjivar catches a kick and sends Hioki to the canvas with a huge right hand. Hioki is quick to pop back to his feet, but when he does, he’s spurting blood from the right side of his face. Menjivar clinches up and drills Hioki with a nice standing elbow in close quarters. Hioki sticks to the outside through the middle of the round, trying to dodge and counter Menjivar’s strikes. Menjivar can’t quite get inside now, kept at bay by the rangy Hioki’s push kicks. Hioki swipes upstairs with a left hand before changing levels for a double-leg takedown in the last 20 seconds. Menjivar goes for a last-second heel hook but runs out of time.

Shawn Jordan vs. Matt Mitrione

Round 1

Both big men connect with punches in the opening 15 seconds, but neither goes down. Jordan takes a leg kick before shoving Mitrione against the cage and working some knees to the legs of “Meathead.” They move off the cage and Jordan comes at Mitrione with a solid combination before sliding back out. Another combo scores for Jordan, this one with a lead uppercut and left hook. Two minutes left in the opening round and Mitrione has to backpedal away from some punches. Mitrione misses with his next combo and comes away grinning. Mitrione scores with a right and Jordan comes back with a crossing left. After taking another leg kick, Jordan hustles Mitrione against the fence again. Mitrione turns it around this time and decks Jordan with a pair of heavy punches. Jordan turns and runs away, but Mitrione gives chase and unloads with punches against the fence. Time is running out but Mitrione can’t quite polish off Jordan. With one second to go, Mitrione finds the button that takes Jordan’s legs out from underneath him, and referee Dan Miragliotta steps in to intervene.

"TUF: China" Welterweight Tournament Final:
Lipeng Zhang vs. Wang Sai

Round 1

Sai gets to work with leg kicks early, then mixes it up with a few to Zhang’s body. Zhang responds with some hard outside low kicks of his own as the finalists continue their feeling out. Just as the crowd begins to boo, Zhang changes levels and bulldozes Sai to the canvas with a double-leg in the center of the cage. Zhang has a body triangle but it’s loose and he’s riding high on Sai’s back. Still, Zhang is able to hang on and pull Sai back to the ground as Sai tries to slip out the back door. Zhang comes close to finishing with a rear-naked choke, but Sai escapes and twists around to set up in Zhang’s guard. It’s rubber guard from Zhang, who’s sporting some damage on his legs from Sai’s kicks. Sai stands and dives back to the ground with a punch, nearly getting caught in a triangle. Sai pulls out and takes the back of Zhang in a scramble just before time runs out.

Sai stands up and comes back down on top, in Zhang’s guard, where they ride out the final half minute of the round without much action.
