Derrick Lewis vs. Jack May

Round 1

John McCarthy is the referee for this heavyweight bout. May slaps at Lewis’ legs with a few kicks before “The Black Beast” bulldozes May across the cage to the ground near the fence. Lewis sits in half guard for a moment, but May sweeps out. The big men stand, and May wastes no time in tripping Lewis back to the mat. May steps right into full mount but doesn’t manage much offense from the position before Lewis rolls to his knees. May tries to jump on his back and slides off, leaving Lewis to slip out the back door and take top position. Lewis starts dropping thunderous left hands and elbows, and May goes belly-down while absorbing the punishment. Referee McCarthy steps in to halt the fight and indicates that May injured his knee.

The Official Result

Derrick Lewis def. Jack May via TKO (Punches) R1 4:23

Mirsad Bektic vs. Chas Skelly

Round 1

Jorge Ortiz is the referee for this featherweight fight. Skelly fires off a few right hands that pull up short and then just backpedals away from a big right-handed counter from Bektic. After about 90 seconds of feeling out, Skelly sends a clean, hard right straight down the center. Bektic responds with a jab and another straight punch before pushing Skelly against the cage. Skelly is sporting a cut beneath his right eye as he has his legs banged up by Bektic’s knees. Referee Ortiz calls for action, and the 145ers fight out of the clinch. Bektic puts together a nice combination with about two minutes left in the round. He snuffs out a shot from Skelly and comes down on top, bashing “The Scrapper” with punches and elbows from guard. Skelly tries to wrap up Bektic’s hands, can’t keep hold and eats another hard punch as a result. Bektic stays heavy on top, flattening Skelly to close out the round.

Round 2

Bektic is catching Skelly with hands low, tagging him with speedy two- and three-punch combinations, while also mixing in leg kicks. Skelly takes the punishment while coming up short on counters in the first two minutes of the round, and now he decides to shoot. Bektic takes a hard right hand in the clinch and then turns Skelly around. When Skelly looks to reverse the position again, Bektic separates. Skelly gets the better of an exchange of big right hooks and tries to pounce while Bektic is dazed. Bektic puts a hand on the canvas to avoid knees to the head, but Skelly knees him twice anyway. Referee Ortiz takes away one point from Skelly and gives Bektic five minutes to recover. Bektic only takes about two minutes before telling Ortiz he’s ready to go. Bektic initiates a clinch and eats another knee; this one is legal, and it’s the only significant offense of the final minute.

Round 3

The first minute of the final round yields more feinting and just-short punches until Bektic changes levels and elevates Skelly for a big double-leg slam. Skelly rolls underneath Bektic, looking for a leglock and then switching to a kimura. In freeing himself from the kimura, Bektic surrenders his back and Skelly hops on instantly. Skelly is riding high, trying to hang on as Bektic tripods, but he can’t. Bektic comes out the back door and now leans left to right in Skelly’s half guard with 90 seconds on the clock. Skelly scrambles up and follows Bektic, circling counterclockwise around the perimeter. Skelly stings him with a right hand, neutralized quickly by another big Bektic takedown. Bektic goes for a heel hook while Skelly may be thinking armbar, punching Bektic in the face from his back as time expires.

Ray Borg vs. Dustin Ortiz

Round 1

Ortiz wastes no time closing in on Borg and pushing him up against the fence. Borg checks the video screen, thinking about a guillotine, but Ortiz takes him to the ground before anything can come of it. Borg reverses the position by hitting the switch and drives a knee into Ortiz’s chest. As Borg works to control Ortiz’s legs, the Roufusport fighter sits up and hits Borg’s left shoulder with some hard elbow strikes. Borg tears Ortiz away from the fence and whips around to take the back, but he can’t get his hooks in before Ortiz postures up and slips out the back. Now it’s Ortiz on top with 1:40 on the clock. Ortiz has a loose headlock with his left arm, tries to cinch it and can’t. Instead, Borg stands up and drives forward on a single-leg. He switches to a double-leg and slams Ortiz to the ground, but Ortiz reverses to top position almost instantly. The flyweights stand just before the end of the round, and Borg touches Ortiz with a pair of punches at the horn.

Round 2

Ortiz works Borg against the cage until he’s able to peel the New Mexican down to the ground and come down to side control. Borg withstands a little ground-and-pound to sweep out again, and again he leaps on Ortiz’s back. Borg cinches up a body triangle and rolls Ortiz to his side, hunting for a rear-naked choke. Ortiz resists the first attempt, then the second, with Borg sitting up between choke tries to drop punches. Ortiz stands with one minute left in the round, Borg still glued to his back via body triangle. As they fall back to the ground, Borg sinks in a deep neck crank, but Ortiz rides it out and finishes the round with Borg on his back.

Round 3

Ortiz has a strong right high kick deflected before the flyweights move briefly to the clinch in the middle of the cage. Another head kick from Ortiz is barely deflected. Borg scores with a kick to the body, misses with a spinning shot. The next head kick from Ortiz lands, but Borg tries to downplay its effect. Borg leaps in to land a jump knee but gets wrapped up and shoved against the cage. Just under half a round remains as the 125-pounders fight off the fence. Borg gets Ortiz down near the fence, but Ortiz stands and whips around to take Borg’s back. Now Borg slips free, but Ortiz stays on top to sock the UFC newcomer with some hard ground-and-pound. They pop back up and Borg has a standing rear waistlock, so Ortiz throws elbows over his shoulder. Ortiz goes to his knees and Borg is still trying to secure back mount when time runs out.

Jordan Mein vs. Hernani Perpetuo

Round 1

Mein stakes out the center of the cage early, flicking out punches to Perpetuo on the outside, though neither man connects with anything of note in the opening minute. Perpetuo lands a right hand to the body and comes off the fence to deliver a leg kick. Mein changes levels and floors Perpetuo two minutes into the round, then sits up for a little ground-and-pound. Perpetuo tries to tie up the Canadian, eats a left hand on the mush as Mein sits up in half guard. Perpetuo hits a butterfly sweep with 90 seconds remaining but Mein finds him on the feet with a step-in knee. Perpetuo spends the last minute of the round circling the outside, throwing kicks and punches but not coming up with anything.

Round 2

Mein keeps Perpetuo on the outside, picking at the Brazilian with jabs and outside leg kicks. Perpetuo connects with some good low kicks of his own, but his jab keeps pulling up short. After a minute of circling and relatively little activity, Mein ducks in with a lead left uppercut and follow-up right hook. With 90 seconds remaining, Mein double-legs Perpetuo to the canvas in the center of the cage. Perpetuo posts and stands 30 seconds later, eats a hard left hand from Mein, and then misses with a combo of his own as Mein ducks and weaves.

Round 3

Mein resumes his work, striking from a distance, adding damage to the already bloodied Perpetuo in the form of jabs and low kicks. After 90 seconds of this, Mein hits another takedown, but this time Perpetuo rolls for a leglock. It’s a deep kneebar attempt, and Mein’s face shows some concern as the Brazilian tries to fully extend the leg. Midway through the round, Mein slides underneath Perpetuo, relieving the pressure on his leg and nearly taking back control in one move. Perpetuo stifles the back-take attempt and stays on top, but Mein doesn’t let him stay there long. Back on their feet, the welterweights probe with punches as the final 90 seconds tick down. Perpetuo waves Mein forward, but Mein hangs back and looks to counter the Brazilian. A big left hook connects for Perpetuo, who sprawls on a Mein takedown attempt with 40 seconds to go. Perpetuo tries to lock up a reverse triangle choke but he doesn’t have the angle and time runs out.

Caio Magalhaes vs. Luke Zachrich

Round 1

Magalhaes is throwing bombs from the start, stepping into the pocket to swing with both hands. After clipping Zachrich with a left, Magalhaes pulls the Thai plum to send a series of big knees up the center. Zachrich resets, steps back in and takes a huge left hand to the ribs. The American doubles over, giving Magalhaes space to throw a knee to the gut. Zachrich hits the mat, Magalhaes drops a couple punches and referee John McCarthy calls this one off.

The Official Result

Caio Magalhaes def. Luke Zachrich via TKO (Punches) R1 0:44

Estevan Payan vs. Alex White

Round 1

Payan slaps at White’s body with a kick, then goes upstairs with a left hook. White puts a kick on Payan’s side, steps into the pocket and eats another left. A missed spinning back kick turns into another body kick for White, answered by Payan with a left-handed body blow. White sticks a hard jab on Payan’s grill, comes inside with a spinning back fist and then floors Payan with another left. White dribbles Payan’s head off the cage with piston-like right hands until referee Jorge Ortiz intervenes. Payan quickly comes to, jumps up and disputes the stoppage, but the replay shows Ortiz was in the right.

The Official Result

Alex White def. Estevan Payan via KO (Punches) R1 1:28

Pat Healy vs. Jorge Masvidal

Round 1

The southpaw Masvidal takes the center early but steps back to avoid some lead left hands. Healy keeps coming forward, steps into range and gets zapped with a crisp left hook. Healy looks for a clinch or takedown on the fence, and Masvidal circles out. Masvidal lands a kick low, then one to the gut, and he taps Healy with a stiff jab as “Bam Bam” comes inside. This time, Healy is deep on a single-leg; Masvidal tries a guillotine while defending the takedown, but it doesn’t stick. Healy gives up on the shot midway through the round and quickly comes back for more. He gets Masvidal to the ground briefly inside the 1:45 mark. “Gamebred” stands up but remains pinned against the fence by Healy, who sends an elbow over the top and a knee inside. Masvidal pushes off and exits the clinch with a standing elbow. Masvidal rocks Healy’s head with a jab, then lands a loud kick to the right side. There’s a short-lived brabo choke attempt from Masvidal after stuffing a shot late in the round.

Healy throws hands to get inside on Masvidal and tries for a takedown against the fence. After 30 seconds of this, Masvidal pops his fellow Strikeforce veteran with a high knee, then turns Healy around shortly afterward. Jabs are scoring for Masvidal, keeping Healy on the outside as they trade in the center of the cage. After a three-punch combo hits his jaw, Healy goes for another round of cage clinching. Masvidal escapes, resets and clips Healy with a spinning back kick. Another combination lights up Healy, who hits a double-leg on the fence with 90 seconds to go. Masvidal stands and faces the fence while Healy knees his legs from behind. Masvidal reverses the position again and drills Healy’s gut with a knee before breaking off.

Healy rushes Masvidal against the fence and eats three hard right hooks in the process. The wrestler keeps coming, abandoning the takedown but holding Masvidal in place. Masvidal reverses with underhooks and exits with another big knee to the breadbasket. More body kicks connect for Masvidal, then more punches when Healy shoots again. This time, it’s a short elbow from Masvidal on the break. A big suplex from Healy draws a grin from Masvidal, who weighs down when Healy goes for another and winds up sitting on Healy. With 2:15 to go, Masvidal twists around to sit in Healy’s half guard. Healy scoots backward to the fence and gets to his feet at the 90-second mark. Six seconds later, Masvidal gets his first takedown of the fight, but it’s Healy peppering with short punches as Masvidal works to improve his position. Healy stands up and rolls through, diving for an awkward single-leg that allows Masvidal to elbow him in the behind. Masvidal turns Healy around on the fence once more before the fight ends.

Thiago Alves vs. Seth Baczynski

Round 1

Baczynski circles counterclockwise around the outside, occasionally stepping in to deliver a leg kick and a straight punch. Alves follows him step for step, cracking on the “Polish Pistola” with some noisy legs kicks of his own. Baczynski tries to catch a low kick, can’t keep hold, so he pushes the Brazilian against the fence. Baczynski releases and resumes circling to his right, and now both men land right hands in an exchange -- Baczynski an uppercut and Alves a hook. Alves just misses with a head kick, sticks a right hand in his man’s face, but Baczynski does well to fend him off with long, defensive punches. Baczynski is cut around the outside of his right eyebrow but he keeps feeding Alves leg kicks. Alves stays busy with his right hands and now mixes in a speedy, straight left. The welterweights trade loud leg kicks again. Alves pulls Baczynski down in the Thai plum and just misses with a step-in knee. Alves closes the round with another pair of chopping low kicks.

More kicks from Alves connect, this time with a switch kick to the body mixed in. Both men land right hands, but Alves follows up and decks Baczynski with another one before exiting the pocket. A straight left from Alves gives Baczynski a short pause against the fence. Now it’s Baczynski coming forward, and he catches Alves against the fence with a right straight. Alves is leaking blood from his nose and mouth while Baczynski is bleeding from the left side of his brow. Inside the last minute, Alves is cutting down Baczynski with constant leg kicks. Baczynski is finding his range with a couple hooks, but Alves closes out the round with two more kicks and a straight right.

The next kick takes the leg out from underneath Baczynski. Alves allows him to stand, connects with a couple more, and now Baczynski wants to shoot. Alves pushes him off and they’re back to striking at range, with Baczynski pumping a triple jab in Alves’ face. Midway through the frame, Alves gets back to work with his leg kicks. Baczynski catches Alves coming in with a left straight; Alves responds with a straight right and a thudding leg kick. Alves traps Baczynski against the cage and sends a series of hard knees up the center in the Thai plum. More leg kicks from Alves, and now he goes to the left side of Baczynski’s body, and back to the lead leg.

Rafael dos Anjos vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Round 1

The lightweights spend their first minute together feeling out the range, with Nurmagomedov stalking from the center while dos Anjos cuts angles on the outside. After taking a kick to the ribs, Nurmagomedov wraps up the Brazilian and drags him to the ground near the fence. Dos Anjos stands and is pulled back down, only to pop back up and separate midway through the frame. It’s only 20 seconds before Nurmagomedov gets in on another takedown and floors dos Anjos again. Dos Anjos threatens with a kimura, releases and stands to sock Nurmagomedov with a couple short right hands as the Russian holds him against the cage. Dos Anjos lands a knee inside, eats an uppercut from the oncoming Nurmagomedov, then resists a takedown. Dos Anjos scores with a left to the body, a right hook upstairs, and Nurmagomedov finishes with a counter right.

Round 2

Dos Anjos strikes first with a low kick and a straight right, answered by Nurmagomedov with a left hook around the Brazilian’s guard. Dos Anjos blocks the next six or seven punches from Nurmagomedov but can’t resist the takedown that comes behind it. Nurmagomedov slows down on the ground as dos Anjos threatens with a guillotine. Dos Anjos adjusts the choke and leans back, but Nurmagomedov’s head is free almost as soon as he does. With dos Anjos kneeling, his right side to the fence, Nurmagomedov works his body with knees while referee John McCarthy calls for action. Another guillotine attempt from dos Anjos falls by the wayside. He holds Nurmagomedov in half guard with 90 seconds left in the round. Nurmagomedov maintains top position to the end of the round with sporadic punches, standing just before the horn to drop a pair of heavy punches that miss.

Round 3

Dos Anjos starts the round aggressively, walking Nurmagomedov toward the fence with kicks low and high. Nurmagomedov slows the roll with a protracted double-leg attempt, but dos Anjos is able to stuff this one and circle out. The lightweights clinch on the fence and dos Anjos looks for a trip; it backfires when Nurmagomedov hooks dos Anjos’ leg and sends him tumbling to the canvas. They’re halfway through the final round now, and it’s Nurmagomedov on top, laying in dos Anjos’ open guard. Dos Anjos shifts and squirms, trying to work an X-guard at one point; Nurmagomedov is just too much on top. Nurmagomedov backs out, allowing dos Anjos to get to his knees, and then dives on the Brazilian’s back inside the final minute. The Russian slips a triangle choke and finishes the fight standing over dos Anjos, punching down.

Yoel Romero Palacio vs. Brad Tavares

Round 1

The southpaw Romero is light on his feet in the opening moments, bouncing around the outside and parrying the punches and body kicks of Tavares. A few low kicks land for Romero before he misses with a jumping switch kick. Tavares eats a straight left hand before he’s dragged to the ground, but he turns the tables on Romero by driving on a single-leg against the fence. Romero makes him give up the takedown with a kimura before hurling Tavares back to the floor. Tavares gets back up with Romero still clinging to his back, and the middleweights move over to the fence. Tavares breaks free inside the last minute and hits Romero with a knee, but the reprise is short lived as Romero is fast to hit another takedown. Tavares reverses, Romero goes for another kimura, and when he can’t get it, Romero elbows Tavares on the side of the head.

Round 2

Romero has another takedown within 10 seconds of round two, and he lands in side control on Tavares’ left side. Tavares slips out and stands in the center of the cage, where Romero misses with a head kick and Tavares makes him pay with a knee. The pace slows midway through the round, both men feinting and twitching in the middle. Romero lunges with a knee that misses and follows up with a straight left which lands. Tavares is sporting a cut from a Romero elbow on the left side of his hairline, staining his forehead with blood. Romero shuts down a takedown attempt from Tavares with a wide sprawl against the fence. Tavares nearly finishes the takedown but gets swept under with yet another kimura sweep. Both men stand and Tavares launches at Romero with a knee, then goes for another takedown. Romero reverses against the fence and holds Tavares there for the last 30 seconds.

Round 3

Romero spends the better part of the opening minute trapping Tavares against the fence; when he releases, Tavares strikes with a hook and Romero backs out. Tavares creeps forward now, flicking out checked leg kicks while Romero stands out of range, firing back with the occasional single shot. With two minutes left, Romero plows Tavares to the mat behind a caught low kick. Tavares gets up, pinned against the cage, and the action really slows with 90 seconds on the clock. Referee Jorge Ortiz splits them up with one minute to go. Romero cracks Tavares with another left hand in close quarters and throws him to the ground one last time before the horn.

Donald Cerrone Edson Barboza

Round 1

Barboza zaps Cerrone with a right hook on the temple right out of the gate, and the “Cowboy” closes the distance for a takedown. Barboza stands him up and the lightweights separate. Cerrone tries to wade into range a few times and gets backed out by Barboza’s counter right hook. Barboza lands his first leg kick, steps back and counters a Cerrone right with a sharp, short left hook. Cerrone lands a nice leg kick and checks Barboza’s return fire. Huge, winging hooks from Barboza land before the he grazes Cerrone with a spinning kick to the body. Cerrone knocks Barboza to the ground with a lightning quick jab and immediately attaches himself to the Brazilian’s back. Five seconds later, Barboza is tapping to a deep rear-naked choke.

The Official Result

Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche

Round 1

The bantamweights trade leg kicks, and Tate snaps off a jab. Carmouche answers with a right hook and backs out of the pocket as the former title challengers square off in the center. When Tate dips in to strike, Carmouche wraps her up and puts her on the fence. Tate reverses to the outside position, but it’s still Carmouche looking for a trip. Carmouche switches to a double-leg and puts Tate on her seat at the foot of the fence. Referee Herb Dean warns Tate about throwing 12-to-6 elbows to Carmouche’s shoulders. Carmouche has Tate’s legs triangled but she’s not doing much else with top position, and the ref calls for action as the crowd begins to grow restless. Tate gets to her feet, Carmouche still wrapping her up from behind and driving knees into the legs of “Cupcake.” Another takedown goes for Carmouche with 1:20 on the clock; Tate quickly stands and denies an attempt from Carmouche to take the back. Tate tries a kimura but Carmouche escapes by tripping her to the mat to finish the round.

Carmouche goes after Tate on the fence again, but this time Tate reverses and looks for a takedown of her own. Tate releases and backs off just a step, standing in jabbing range and moving Carmouche around the outside. Tate lands a pair of short left hooks before Carmouche drops down and hits another double-leg. “Girl-rilla” takes a couple elbows from Tate before they stand up and Carmouche repeats the sequence. Two minutes left in the round and Carmouche isn’t doing much on top, just controlling the legs and keeping Tate on the ground. Tate tries a guillotine and escapes to her feet, then drops back down to try and finish. Carmouche rolls over and loosens the grip, escaping completely as they stand.

Round 3

Tate comes in behind a left hand and pushes Carmouche to the fence, then hits a takedown straight to side control. “Cupcake” is looking for a crucifix while Carmouche tries to escape the precarious situation by wall-walking. Two minutes in, Tate catches Carmouche kneeling and sinks in one hook, then begins working for the RNC. Carmouche is doing well to defend the choke but Tate is still scoring with unanswered right hands. Tate goes for a short choke, can’t get that either as Carmouche buries her chin. The women roll away from the fence, and here Tate gets the rear-naked choke under Carmouche’s chin. Carmouche grits it out, peeling away Tate’s hands but finishing the round on her back with Tate kicking at her legs.

Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum

Round 1

Referee “Big” John McCarthy is the third man in the cage for tonight’s heavyweight main event. Browne kicks low and ducks under a return right hand from Werdum. Now it’s Browne swinging and missing with a high kick, and Werdum catches him in range with a knee in the Thai plum. Browne lands an overhand right but gets caught off-balance and pushed toward the fence. He turns around and zaps Werdum with a right hand, and suddenly the Brazilian is underneath Browne, grabbing for a leg. The big men scramble up and then go back down, this time with Werdum on top. Werdum leans left to right, framing up an arm-triangle choke in between left hands to Browne’s head. Browne leans forward and nearly has his back taken before exploding to his feet. A kick to the body lands for Browne, followed by a hook around Werdum’s guard. Werdum scores with a good body kick; Browne slaps his belly as if to say “bring it on,” and Werdum obliges with a left hand to the gut, then a pair of hooks up top. Werdum catches a foot to the face on the end of a spinning kick, shrugs it off. Werdum finishes the round slugging Browne with a big right hand against the fence.

Round 2

Werdum is on his back foot, keeping Browne at bay with kicks to the legs and body. When “Hapa” gets into range, Werdum lights him up with a right hand and drives him to the ground near the fence. Browne gets to one knee and now must defend his back, as Werdum has one hook in and is searching for a rear-naked choke. Browne rolls to his back, and now Werdum has an arm-triangle choke in place. The Brazilian is on the wrong side, however, so he gives up the hold to lay across Browne from left to right. Browne is pushing off the cage with his feet but can’t find any escape from the heavy top game of “Vai Cavalo.” Werdum steps over Browne’s head, grasping the right arm and trying to yank it free. Browne defends well and powers back to his feet, but his punches are coming slowly and one at a time now. Werdum sticks a jab, deflects a left hook and gets popped with a straight right counter. Werdum finishes the frame with a knee to Browne’s stomach from the Thai clinch.

Round 3

Werdum stings Browne with a fast combination of hooks and ends it with a punch to the gut. A spinning back fist whacks Browne on the face. When Browne trips Werdum to the ground behind a caught kick, Werdum invites the Hawaiian to join him. Browne refuses, so Werdum hops back to his feet in style. Browne takes the outside position as the heavyweights clinch on the fence, but Werdum deals out the damage with a big knee and three or four hard follow-up punches. One more knee from Werdum precedes a takedown, but Browne quickly stands up. Ninety seconds left in the round, and Browne is missing with big, tired single punches. Werdum is showing some wear, too, but he’s still firing back with heavy shots and combinations.

Round 4

The big men open round four jabbing in the center, and no surprise, it’s Werdum sticking Browne with straight, hard punches on the left. Werdum mixes in a right hook, dodges a punch and kicks Browne hard to the body. A kick from Browne strays to Werdum’s cup, and referee McCarthy calls time. Werdum takes a few seconds to recover, comes back and takes a Browne right straight on the cheek. Browne stifles a takedown attempt, jabs ahead and gets push-kicked out of range. Werdum puts a straight right on Browne’s temple when the Greg Jackson student steps into range. A pair of whirling kicks from Browne is dodged by Werdum, who gives the American a grin while jogging away.

Round 5

Browne fires a pair of front kicks up the center and tries to close in on Werdum near the fence, but the Brazilian evades him. Two right hands from Werdum light up Browne, who’s standing almost still in the center of the cage, throwing single punches at the circling Werdum. A double-leg shot from Werdum is stuffed, so he triple-pumps his jab in Browne’s face and crosses with the right hand. Two minutes left, and Werdum continues to stick his jab in Browne’s bloodied beard. Browne is going for broke with 30 seconds left, missing with a spinning back kick and then landing a left-handed haymaker. Browne tries to chase Werdum down in the closing seconds, but Werdum is on his horse, and this one is headed to the judges.
