He briefly threatens with a keylock on the far arm but the bell sounds.

Jose Caceres vs. Walber Brito de Barros

Round 1

Barros rushes Caceres quickly with a big right hand, but Caceres is able to circle and jab. The Floridian pops a few more jabs into Barros' mug, prompting the Brazilian to tie him up and run him into the cage. Barros drops to a single, but Caceres takes his time, pulls Barros' grip apart and spins off the fence. Caceres comes forward with a one-two, so Barros changes levels. Caceres tries to lock up a guillotine from his feet while his opponent goes for the takedown, and his submission attempt eventually gets Barros to release his leg. From range, Caceres unloads with a sudden barrage of spinning back fists, followed by a low kick, then another spinning back kick. Barros tackles him to the mat, but the long-limbed Caceres nearly sweeps to the back before taking top position for himself. With 10 seconds left in the round, Caceres drills elbows to the ribs and punches to the face on top.

Round 2

Caceres is full of movement and feints as the second begins, even galloping on a fake flying knee attempt. As soon as Caceres hits him with a jab, Barros runs him back into the fence and negates his reach. Referee Telis Assimenios warns Barros about grabbing the fence as he's pinning Caceres there. Barros gets Caceres down for a sec, but Caceres slides up the fence and powers through to top again. The brother of “Bruce Leeroy” goes to work with elbows, mashing Barros as he looks for a leglock. Barros covers up and Caceres threatens a keylock briefly to open his half guard. Barros rolls into a single, but winds up in a kimura sweep. Caceres tries to sweep him into armbar position, but winds up on the bottom of side control. Incredibly, from the bottom of side, he bends his body up and around Barros, taking a back crucifix, then moving into top. He pounds away briefly, but Barros keeps digging on a sweep from deep half guard, and eventually gets it. Caceres plays bottom, throwing up a triangle that ensnares Barros and sweeping to top and adjusting to an inverted triangle position. Barros grits out the last 10 seconds, perhaps saved by the bell.

Tricky Caceres gave Barros fits on the floor.
Barros patiently kicks from distance and when Caceres winds up on two long crosses, Barros counters him with a pair of hooks. The now-bloodied Caceres is hurt, and skids across the mat, barely on his feet. Barros rushes him with kicks, then lands a hard right before taking Caceres back to the mat. They briefly end up in a leglock battle, but Barros sits back up into top position. Barros chips away until Caceres throws up a triangle, just as he did in the second round, then adjusts it to an inverted position and ends up in the dogfight position.

Caceres briefly attempts a bulldog choke, but instead turns around and pushes Barros to the mat with under 30 seconds to go. Caceres punches away on the Brazilian's ribs until the final bell.

Miree is precariously dangling on Heun's back, trying to get a second hook in. “Big Problem” slides off the back, but stays in close on Heun and runs him into the cage. Miree swims to the double collar tie and rips Heun with a hard knee. Heun can't gets away from the neckwrestling, so he tries to uppercut his way out. Responding smartly, Miree foot sweeps him and puts him back on the deck. He pounds briefly before Heun kicks him off with just over 90 seconds to go. Heun feints and lands a hard right hand. Miree ducks under Heun's right hand and gets in on a takedown, putting his man on the mat with 10 seconds to go, but it's too late to do anything constructive.

Heun is now doing a better job circling and cutting the charging Miree. Low kick by Heun. More jabs land for Heun on a tiring Miree. Heun pops his foe again and Miree's mouthguard comes out, prompting referee Telis Assiminios to halt action and admonishing the fighter for not keeping his equipment in his mouth.

Fitch stands to pound and Hallman tries to grab his Achilles and sweep him, but Fitch blocks it and comes down with more heavy punishment. Fitch starts to land cleaner ground-and-pound shots, so Hallman swings for another leglock, getting a decent look at a heel hook. However, predictably, Fitch escapes and passes right to side control, where he lands left hands on the tiring Hallman.

Fitch outlanded Hallman 167-8 on the mat.
A tired Hallman eats a hard right cross from Fitch, who tackles him to the mat and goes to work with giant, dramatic hammerfists from the ceiling to the floor. Hallman ties him up in half guard and Fitch keeps smashing away. Fitch's grinding style is just too much for Hallman, who is absolutely exhausted, but still veteran enough to defend himself intelligently. He gets full guard back, but Fitch just keeps landing hard rights and short elbows. Hallman kicks him away, Fitch shucks his foot by and lances him with another diving right to the face. Fitch simply keeps punching away until the final bell.
