Darren Uyenoyama vs. Phil Harris

Round 1
Uyenoyama takes the center of the cage and walks Harris toward the fence, both men feeling out the distance with wide punches. Uyenoyama changes levels, gets an underhook and shoves Harris against the cage, where the flyweights jockey for position in the clinch. Harris gets a takedown, but Uyenoyama quickly stands and Harris takes his back on the feet. Harris drives some knees into the back of Uyenoyama’s thighs while the American tries to get Harris off his back. As he’s losing poition, Harris drags Uyenoyama down to the ground again, where Uyenoyama ties up Harris’ right arm in open guard. Uyenoyama grabs hold of Harris’ right arm now and puts his left leg behind Harris’ head, looking for a triangle. He can’t cinch the choke and Harris escapes to the feet. Uyenoyama tries a wild somersault kick that doesn’t land flush. Harris lands a few short left hooks and leg kicks; Uyenoyama raises his hands high in a taunting style reminiscent of recent training partners the Diaz brothers before the round ends.

Round 2
Some more busy-but-tentative swinging on the feet precedes another clinch against the cage with Uyenoyama on the outside. This time it’s Uyenoyama who brings the fight to the ground, and he works to secure Harris’ back once they’re down there. Harris defends and puts Uyenoyama in his guard, but Uyenoyama is relentless and moves quickly into mount. Punches from mount force Harris to roll over and Uyenoyama wastes no time in locking up a rear-naked choke. Harris taps out and referee Nick Gamst officially calls it at 3:38 of round two.

Bart Palaszewski vs. Diego Nunes

Round 1
Nunes lands an outside leg kick and some hard right hands up top. Palaszewski reels backwards and Nunes gives chase. Nunes grabs hold of Palaszewski, who grabs the Brazilian’s head in a guillotine under his left arm as he falls to the ground. Nunes extracts his head from the grip of Palaszewski, who is leaking blood out the corner of his left eye from those early punches. Palaszewski works for a triangle from his back, but Nunes does well to stack up and get out of danger. Resting in Palaszewski’s closed guard, Nunes stacks “Bartimus” up, then goes back to the kneeling position to drill Palaszewski with elbows. Palaszewski escapes to his feet, but he’s only vertical for a few seconds before he’s crushed with another vicious right hand from “The Gun.” Palaszewski dives on Nunes’ legs and Nunes sprawls, then spins around to take his man’s back. Palaszewski flips over and puts Nunes in his open guard, so Nunes stands up and dives at Palaszewski with more punches.

Round 2
Nunes comes out swinging punches and leg kicks, and even tries a spinning hook kick early in the second. He keeps pestering Palaszewski with leg kicks, then thumps him with another right hand and a spinning backfist. Palaszewski digs an underhook but gets tripped to the ground and finds himself underneath Nunes again. Palaszewski is quicker to his feet this time, though he nearly gets snared in a guillotine on his way up. Nunes keeps the pressure on with leg kicks and more right hands; Palaszewski gives him some low kicks in return but just can’t connect with a big punch. Nunes catches a kick and puts Palaszewski on the ground one more time before the end of the round.

Round 3
It’s more of the same from Nunes early in the final round, but 30 seconds in, Palaszewski puts a left hand on Nunes that gives the Brazilian pause for thought. Moments later, a counter left hook clips Nunes’ chin. Nunes is on rubbery legs, moving backward as Palaszewski tries to pour on the punishment with punches and kicks. Nunes clinches, gets shoved away and keeps moving backward. He seems to have recovered as he resumes inside-leg-kicking Palaszewski, whose offense has slowed back down. Palaszewski comes forward with a pair of outside leg kicks and another short left. A kick to the body from Palaszewski and the featherweights trade punches in close quarters. Down to the final two minutes now and Nunes in headhunting, swinging at air with big, overhand punches. Palaszewski backs him off with pawing punches, but Nunes clinches and looks for a takedown. Palaszewski shoves him away, eats a pair of hooks and dodges a spinning kick. Palaszewski walks into a hard right hand, then another one that sends him to the floor. Nunes pounces and tries to finish the fight with punches on the floor but runs out of time.

Jacob Volkmann vs. Shane Roller

Round 1
Volkmann throws some awkward body kicks, then tries to go up top as the wrestlers feel one another out. Volkmann is first to dive for a single-leg about 50 seconds in, but Roller denies it. An uppercut scores for Volkmann, and he grabs for another takedown attempt. This time, the single-leg turns into a waistlock and Volkmann has Roller’s back standing. Roller goes to his knees and Volkmann locks on a body triangle, softening Roller up with punches. Volkmann nearly has the RNC with his left arm, but Roller peels it off. Volkmann switches to a facelock/neck crank with his right arm; Roller hesitate for a moment, then taps out at 2:38 of the opening round.

Marcus LeVesseur vs. Carlo Prater

Round 1
LeVesseur swings a wild left hand which Prater ducks and uses to clinch up. Prater puts his man against the fence with underhooks and works a few knees inside; one strike strays low, but the lightweights keep fighting. LeVesseur trips Prater to the floor, but they’re only there a few seconds before ref Josh Rosenthal orders them back up. Prater ducks another punch, ties up and tries for a trip of his own. He jumps guard and LeVesseur presses him into the fence. His legs wrapped around LeVesseur’s waist, Prater grabs for a guillotine with his left arm. After 30 seconds of threatening with the choke, Prater drops down to his feet and lets go, but LeVesseur keeps him pinned on the fence. Prater turns him around and takes a knee to the body, then another as LeVesseur regains outside position. They trade knees inside and Prater sneaks a few short right hands around the back of LeVesseur’s head. LeVesseur throws a couple shots to the body before the horn.

Round 2
Prater takes the outside position on the fence this time, bullying LeVesseur against the cage with knees. LeVesseur turns it around and scores with some knees of his own before they split. Prater changes levels and dodges a lead uppercut to grab for a leg. He can’t get it, so Prater changes to the Thai plum and puts LeVesseur on the fence again. LeVesseur takes the outside position and finally gets Prater to the ground, though the BJJ specialist may have willingly pulled guard to set up a guillotine attempt. LeVesseur signals that he’s alright, even as Prater continues to wrench the choke. LeVesseur gets his head free and lets Prater back up. LeVesseur charges in for another takedown in the closing seconds and Prater grabs for a D’Arce/brabo choke this time. LeVesseur rides out the final few seconds on top.
