Johnny Eduardo (135.5) vs. Alejandro Perez (136)

Round 1

Normally, the event after a blockbuster pay-per-view is usually a letdown by UFC booking standards, and this card has flown under the radar. UFC Fight Night 193, which is all on ESPN+ at a relatively earlier start time of 4 p.m. on the east coast, will go down with 12 fights at a brisk pace. We kick things off in the bantamweight division, when two bantamweights with two-fight skids try to right the ship against one another when Perez (21-8-1, 7-3-1 UFC) takes on Eduardo (28-12, 3-4 UFC). Neither man has fought in quite some time, with Perez’ last bout in 2019 and Eduardo’s most recent performance in 2018, so the rust will need to be kicked off. Referee Chris Tognoni skillfully deflects the shedding rusty bits and clocks them in as they touch gloves to start off the night. Perez comes out low and tight, and Eduardo claps his lead leg with a kick as Perez puts weight on it. He scores another, and Perez simply twists back and forth, so the Brazilian gets off a third. Perez comes up short with a few jabs, allowing Eduardo to ding him with another kick before winging an overhand right. Eduardo lands an inside leg kick, and he ducks out of the way just in time to avoid a counter hook. Both men swat at one another with strikes, and Eduardo winds up with huge strikes that glance off the target. The Brazilian once more hacks at the lead leg of his adversary, and Perez has it far out in front of him like a reddening target. Perez tries to find his range with jabs, and he is forced to partially check a leg kick. Two wide shots slap off the body of Perez, who is forced to absorb a heavy body kick shortly after. They connect with left hooks at the same time, and Eduardo is surprised by the power his smaller foe possesses. Perez wobbles back and forth to throw Eduardo off, but Eduardo does not bite and instead lands a low kick and one to the midsection. “Pretinho” continues to chop down the leg and mix it up with body kicks, and Perez tries and fails to counter with an overhand right. Eduardo hacks at the lead leg of his opponent with both legs, whacking the inside and outside of Perez’ plant leg. Perez tries to make him pay with a big right hand, but it is the counter left that catches Eduardo as the Brazilian rushes forward to attack. Perez jabs to the body, and he comes up short with a spinning back fist before the horn.

Round 2

The gloves get touched to clock in the second round, and Eduardo pounds Perez’ lead calf to make Perez do a little spin. Perez walks Eduardo down, but he does not pull the trigger beyond a left hand. Eduardo’s right eye is starting to swell from the few strikes that Perez has connected with, but he pays it no mind as he slings a head kick that just misses. Perez tries to bear down on his foe with a swarm of punches, but Eduardo swats them away and stays composed so that he can kick the lead leg. Perez aims a knee up the middle, and the Brazilian times this well as he pushes through to dump Perez on his back. Eduardo drags the two to his corner and starts to unload with a little ground-and-pound, all while Perez closes his guard and holds on tight. When Perez holds up high, Eduardo lands to the body, and when Perez grabs lower, Eduardo aims strikes to the head. As Eduardo scores a few strikes, Perez bursts his way back to his feet and slams his fist into the side of Eduardo’s head. Eduardo tries to get it back by slinging heavy leather, until Perez changes things up by sprinting ahead to secure a double leg takedown. “Turbo” starts to slowly grind his elbow on Eduardo’s face, and as he lands a few strikes, Eduardo kicks off and gets to his knees. Perez quickly threatens with a guillotine choke, which forces Eduardo to roll to his back. A wild scramble ensues, allowing Perez to take Eduardo’s back and fish for a choke until he is spun over. Perez assumes side control when the dust settles, and instead of fishing for an arm-triangle setup or some strikes from above, he rapidly isolates an arm with his legs. Perez hooks Eduardo’s elbow beneath his knee in an unusual position and cranks on it while he holds on to a head lock. The Brazilian grimaces, and with no way out, he surrenders to this unorthodox straight armbar with a scarf hold set up. What a return for Perez, hitting a move rarely seen inside the cage!

Alejandro Perez def. Johnny Eduardo R2 4:13 via Submission (Scarf Hold Armlock)

Stephanie Egger (135) vs. Shanna Young (134.5)

Round 1

Two ladies in Egger (5-2, 0-1 UFC) and Young (7-3, 0-1 UFC) will come to blows next, as both bantamweights seek their first win in the UFC cage. The UFC advertises Young as an 8-4 fighter, but her two performances in the Invicta Phoenix Series are considered exhibitions as they were one-round bouts. A glove touch is offered and accepted before referee Mark Smith, and the fight is on. Egger immediately advances, trying to pressure the American, and Young responds with a push kick and a subsequent head kick. Egger blocks and lands a leg kick, and when they come together, they throw hands. Egger catches a kick from Young, and she bullies Young to the fence as she pursues a trip takedown. Young stays standing, eats a knee to the body and tries to sling a left hand that comes up short. Egger tags her foe with a one-two, and she paws away the oncoming strikes towards her. Egger uses her reach with outstretched hands to keep Young away, and she is warned for pointing out her fingers while playing keep-away. Young continues to throw big hands, but they keep missing as Egger backpedals and stays at kicking range. Egger gets off a kick, but Young pressures hard to push the Swiss fighter into the wall and land a right hand. Egger reverses the position by hitting a throw, putting Young on her back with a thud. Young does not stay inactive on her back, instead instantly attacking with a heel hook or ankle lock. When Egger punches her way out of one try, Young grabs Egger’s heel and puts it under her opposite armpit with an inverted heel hook. Egger falls back into a 50/50 position so that she can attack a leglock of her own, but she abandons this track and sits up to attack. Young keeps a rubber guard and puts her leg up while pursuing a heel hook again, and Egger slams Young in the face with heavy punches to make Young bail on her submission track. Egger keeps her weight down on Young in half guard before popping over to side control, and she begins to elbow Young in the face. The strikes allow Egger to go after a crucifix, but she cannot get it and instead holds position until the round ends.

Round 2

The women charge out of their corners to engage, but they pull back right when they meet in the middle, allowing Egger to land a single leg kick. Young swings and misses with a combination as Egger is light on her feet, and the Swiss woman cracks Young with a speedy one-two. Young appears to be energized from eating these strikes, rushing forward while flailing punches until she pushes her opponent to the wire. Like the last round, Egger uses Young’s momentum against her to judo throw her to her back. Egger lands in high side control, landing a few strikes until Young rolls for a heel hook. Egger pounds on Young to break the grip, and she lowers herself back into Young’s guard to blast Young in the face with an elbow. Young covers up and turns to her side, and Smith yells for her to fight back. Suddenly, Smith calls the fight as Egger throws a few punches that are few blocked, and he must have seen something everyone else couldn’t as it appears to be exceptionally early. Young appears as confused as anyone watching when she questions Smith about why the fight has now ended. However, there is nothing that can be said, no pleas that will change anyone’s mind, or any in-cage appeal that will be heard. The fight is over, and Egger is now the first fighter to stop Young with strikes.

Gaetano Pirrello (134.5) vs. Douglas Silva de Andrade (135)

Round 1

This next bout, also at bantamweight like the first two on the card, comes in the form of a classic battle between Brazil and Belgium as Silva de Andrade (26-4, 1 NC; 4-4 UFC) faces off against “El Tigre” Pirrello (15-6-1, 0-1 UFC). Both men sport equal 73% knockout rates with a lone stoppage loss to strikes each, and fists and feet may fly soon. The first thing the 135ers do is touch gloves, and referee Chris Tognoni is ready for what comes next. Silva de Andrade takes the center of the cage at the beginning of the fight, but it is Pirrello who strikes first with a leg kick. There is a tense trade-off of flinches and feints, and after a stalemate, Pirrello kicks at the lead leg again. “D’Silva” suddenly springs into action, blitzing forward with a punch combination that knocks Pirrello into the fence. When tied up in the clinch, an “old school” foot stomp comes from the Belgian, and they separate as Pirrello gets off a few more leg kicks. The Brazilian returns fire with a kick to the lead leg, and he scores another. Pirrello loads up with a body kick, and before it lands, “D’Silva” loads up with a perfectly timed preemptive counter left hook that sends Pirrello crashing to the canvas. Pirrello is seeing stars after getting dropped, and Silva de Andrade hammers down a few follow-up shots to tuck Pirrello in and put him to sleep. As he celebrates, Silva de Andrade jumps off the cage to perform a back flip, and then he climbs it to do another, nearly landing on the unconscious body of the Belgian as the commission members fuss at him. What a knockout!

The Official Result

Douglas Silva de Andrade def. Gaetano Pirrello R1 2:04 via KO (Punch)

Jamie Mullarkey (155.5) vs. Devonte Smith (155.5)

Round 1

Knockout may be the word of the day, as fans are treated to another clash between two fighters that are prone to throw strikes until their opponent no can defense. Smith (11-2, 3-1 UFC) and his 100% finish rate will be meeting Mullarkey (13-4, 1-2 UFC), who brings a high rate of stoppage in his own right at 92%. Judges may be able to sit this one out, but referee Dan Miragliotta absolutely cannot. The gloves are touched before the lightweights handle their business. Mullarkey reaches out with a few jabs to find his range, and none of them find his intended target. Smith reaches out with a right hand down the middle, and Mullarkey responds with a leg kick after eating a follow-up jab. The Aussie digs to the body with a right hand, and he falls short with a right hand over the top. Smith counters with a quick left hand, and a one-two wobbles Mullarkey. Mullarkey smiles at his opponent as his nose reddens, and he lands a heavy body kick and backs Smith into the fence. Smith absorbs a kick so that he can charge ahead and lay into Mullarkey with a blistering combination. Mullarkey is shaken up but keeps his wits about him, backing away and jabbing so that he can clear his head. With his legs beneath him again, Mullarkey targets a one-two that brushes past his foe, but a leg kick from him does not miss. Smith scores a single left hook and hops back from the oncoming fire, but Mullarkey gives chase and lands a leg kick. Smith chains a combination of punches together, and a knee busts Mullarkey’s nose open and hurts him. Mullarkey wears it well as he survives and returns fire, getting Smith’s respect with a speedy right hand and a few jabs. “King Kage” backs away from a leg kick so that he can counter, but it is Mullarkey who lands two punches. Mullarkey swings and misses as he tries to follow up, and Smith slaps Mullarkey with an open palm and lands a pair of heavy leg kicks. Mullarkey advances to clinch up with his foe, and he drags Smith down to the canvas with a trip. When Smith gets back up, he elbows Mullarkey with a no-look strike but gets tagged with a few punches before the bell separates them.

Round 2

The gloves get touched to start off the second round, and Mullarkey leads off with a jab. Smith gives one back, with his right hand cocked back and ready for action. A heavy kick to the rear leg from Mullarkey hampers Smith’s movement, as he takes a funny step back. Mullarkey gives chase, and he lands a few more while Smith winds up on bombs. Smith comes over the top with a left hand but he is not so eagerly anticipating leg kicks that come at him. Smith looks to time an elbow on the way in, but Mullarkey sees it and pulls back just in time. Smith sits down on an uppercut but Mullarkey shakes it off, and the two come together and throw heavy hands. Smith knees his foe in the chest when they close the distance, and the Aussie chains several together as he bullies Smith into the fence. Mullarkey sets up a Thai clinch, knees the body and slashes with an elbow as he begins to batter Smith. A huge left hand to the liver hurts Smith badly, one that would make Bas Rutten jump out of his seat. Mullarkey smells blood and unleashes a furious salvo of strikes to the head and body as Smith’s legs betray him and he hits the ground. Mullarkey continues to pound on his opponent with hammerfists until Miragliotta has seen enough, giving the Aussie an impressive comeback victory after a tough first round.

Bethe Correia (138.5: Missed Weight) vs. Karol Rosa (135.5)

Round 1

It’s time to say goodbye to a beloved female fighter, as former bantamweight title challenger Correia (11-5-1, 5-5-1 UFC) came back to the organization for a one-off retirement match. Putting the cherry on top for her final bout, Correia missed weight by 2.5 pounds before facing surging countrywoman Rosa (14-3, 3-0 UFC). As is customary in the UFC, the promotion will look to build a new star in the 26-year-old Rosa from a win over the 38-year-old superstar “Pitbull.” Rosa is thankful that she was selected to win the lottery of the final foe, but she does not offer a glove touch while referee Herb Dean watches on. The two women start off with a very brief brawl, and Correia lands at the end of a left hand. Rosa gives her one back with a clubbing right hand, and Correia does not register it. Rosa ties her up with a collar tie, and she lands a pair of knees to the body as Correia fights out of it. “Pitbull” scores a leg kick, and Rosa returns fire with one much more powerful. Correia jabs to the head and body, and Rosa stings her with a right hand before grabbing on to a Thai clinch again. Rosa gets off a knee or two before Correia fights her way out of the position, allowing the younger fighter to connect with a thudding leg kick. They come together landing single strikes, and then clash with fists from both sides. Rosa connects with a one-two, and Correia tries to counter with an overhand right but misses the mark. Rosa delivers a kick to the body as she marches Correia down, and a right hand backs Correia up to the wall. Correia responds with a few one-twos that miss, and Rosa slips and rips with a counter and a low kick. Rosa jumps forward with a knee that lands to the body, and one drills Correia in the face, making Correia check her nose for damage. It is turning red but does not appear to be aiming the wrong direction. Rosa has a kick caught, and Correia aims to sting her with a right hand up top but she is just out of reach. Rosa nails Correia in the body with a kick, forcing Correia to drop her right elbow, and she sees this and lands with a pair of punches. Suddenly, Rosa shoots in for a takedown, but Correia stays upright and holds on to the bell.

Round 2

Correia rushes out to take the center of the cage, only to get popped with a swiping left hand from the taller, rangier Rosa. Correia jabs out to the body a few times, and she ducks out of the way to avoid punches and a high kick. Correia does land a kick to the legs, and Rosa clips her with a counter left hand. Out of nowhere, Rosa jumps ahead to blast Correia in the body with a knee, and Correia reels but does not show the pain on her face. Rosa walks her foe down and lands a few looping punches, and a one-two that is straighter splits the guard. Rosa marches through oncoming fire to land a knee to the body, and she pops Correia in the chops with a right hand. Correia has a swarm of punches deflected, and Rosa kicks low and fires off a knee to the chest. Correia attempts to back her away with body shots, and Rosa does not give her a moment to breathe as she attacks the body. Rosa lets loose with a few elbows from up top, and Correia flails in response and grabs hold of the younger Rosa to slow down her offense. Rosa takes advantage of the close proximity to dig elbows on the fatiguing Correia’s face, all while pressing heavily on Correia to tire her further. Rosa gets off short knees and defends any reversal attempts from her opponent, and stops a trip attempt from Correia. As she breaks away, Rosa lets Correia have it with several hacking elbows. A right hand from Rosa backs Correia up, but Correia is not out of the fight as she catches a swinging Rosa with a quick right as well. Rosa charges ahead with a knee to the body and hurts Correia, and she pours it on with several more that bend Correia over. Rosa chains knees and elbows together to clobber Correia until the horn saves her.

Round 3

The last round for Correia’s MMA career begins as she takes punches to the face and kicks to the lead leg. This sport is a cruel one, and there is no time for heroes. Rosa hops out of the way with ease any time Correia mounts offense, and she gives it back to Correia threefold. Rosa gets off a jump knee and a right hand, and Correia can partially defend herself but the strike gets through. Correia walks through a few punches to land one, and Rosa stays busy by mixing up strikes up high and low. Two hooks to the body connect for the 38-year-old, and Rosa does not even register them as she plods ahead looking to land strikes. She beats Correia to the punch with a jab, and a few body kicks frustrate Correia. Rosa jumps in with a knee and a right hand follow-up shot, but Correia wears it well. Rosa lands successfully, blocks the responsive strikes and continues to do work on “Pitbull.” Rosa gets off a right hand, and she just misses with a spinning kick. Two loud punches mark Correia’s face up, and they slap kicks at the same time. Rosa has a one-two and a step-in knee pound into Correia’s body, and Correia’s face is showing damage and disappointment. Rosa finds her way into a clinch, and she comes up short with a trip takedown. Correia walks face-first into a jumping knee, but her own knees do not buckle as she just gets pushed into the wall. Rosa goes to the well with another such knee, and Correia attacks with a desperation takedown. Rosa easily shoves Correia to her back, and she unloads with ground-and-pound until the final bell puts Correia’s career in the rear-view mirror. When the fight concludes, Rosa's first reaction is to give her opponent a long hug. Meanwhile, she has likely surfed to a fairly one-sided decision.

Casey O'Neill (125) vs. Antonina Shevchenko (125.5)

Round 1

When Shevchenko (9-3, 3-3 UFC) made her MMA debut back in 2002, her unbeaten opponent O’Neill (7-0, 2-0 UFC) was in preschool. In this intriguing flyweight tilt, Shevchenko will look to drag her UFC record above .500 all while staving off the fast-rising “King” from Australia. Referee Chris Tognoni serves as the cage official for what could be a fun battle, and the women do not touch gloves before getting after it. O’Neill pressure her elder opponent right out of the gate, throwing hands as she works her way in. O’Neill lands a punch and a kick as Shevchenko counters her, and as Shevchenko pushes away, she gets warned for pointing her fingers. O’Neill connects with a one-two when they get back to it, and she pursues a takedown and is oddly put on her back in an unusual scramble. Shevchenko gets the better of the exchange, taking side control after fighting out of a potential twister setup. Shevchenko ties up the arm with a crucifix, and she starts hammering O’Neill with unanswered blows. Tognoni asks O’Neill to fight back, so she obliges by fighting out of the dangerous situation and exploding to her feet. They meet in the center of the cage in a Thai clinch, and Shevchenko feeds the unbeaten fighter several knees to the body. Shevchenko tags O’Neill with a few crisp punches, countering O’Neill and not absorbing strikes of her own. O’Neill looks to tie her up and take the fight down as she charges in, and she trips Shevchenko’s legs out beneath her and drags her down to the canvas. O’Neill flattens Shevchenko out and keeps her trapped to the ground as Shevchenko bucks and kicks off the wall, landing a few strikes along the way for good measure. Shevchenko closes up her guard as O’Neill stacks her up, and Shevchenko pursues an armbar only to get elbowed in the face. Shevchenko kicks off and smacks O’Neill in the face with her heel, but the Aussie fights through it to try to climb on top. The momentary confusion allows Shevchenko to burst back to her knees and upright again, and they start to throw hands again. Shevchenko lands a one-two, and she has a front kick caught. This allows O’Neill to grab hold of her and throw her to the ground, where she lands on top and does some damage before the round ends.

Round 2

O’Neill comes out of her corner firing, whiffing on a right hand but connecting with a front kick that may have landed a little low. Shevchenko shrugs it off and kicks O’Neill in the face with the ball of her feet, prompting a brief brawl before O’Neill ties her up. Shevchenko breaks free and the two land long striking combinations on one another. O’Neill punches her way into a tie-up, and the fighter out of Kyrgyzstan turns her around and thwarts a takedown try. Shevchenko lands a few knees to the delight of her champion sister in her corner, and O’Neill breaks away so that they can get back to punching range. They both connect with clean strikes, and O’Neill darts in and sucks the legs out beneath Shevchenko to pull her to the canvas. O’Neill in her foe’s full guard slashes down with an elbow, and Shevchenko threatens with an armbar off her back. Although she cannot get the submission, she does use the position to get to her knees. O’Neill follows her along so that she can take her back, and she gets her hooks in and pulls Shevchenko to the mat. With no choke in sight, O’Neill instead elects so take full mount and exert heavy chest pressure to flatten Shevchenko out. “King Casey” sits up with a big elbow, and she unloads ferocious ground-and-pound as Shevchenko twists and turns. Shevchenko surrenders her back in the process, and O’Neill snags a rear-naked choke but gives up on it when Shevchenko keeps turning. O’Neill punishes Shevchenko with vicious elbows and punches from on top, and she claims full mount to start raining elbows down. Tognoni tells Shevchenko to fight back, and O’Neill looks to him to intervene, but when he does not, she unloads a barrage of hammerfists on her downed foe. O’Neill slams her fists into Shevchenko’s face and the side of her head, and Shevchenko turns but cannot find any respite. As damage continues to mount, Tognoni sees that a busted up Shevchenko is no longer intelligently defending herself, and he halts the fight. “King Casey” is now a perfect 8-0 as a pro, and she is the first fighter to finish “El Pantera” with strikes in the sport.

Casey O’Neill def. Antonina Shevchenko R2 4:47 via TKO (Punches)

Jared Gordon (155) vs. Joe Solecki (155.5)

Round 1

Seemingly in the blink of an eye, we have reached the preliminary headliner, which comes at lightweight between ex-CFFC champ Gordon (17-4, 5-3 UFC) and fellow CFFC vet Solecki (11-2, 3-0 UFC). Someone’s win streak here will come to an end, and referee Dan Miragliotta will be the first person to find out who that will be. There is a respectful touch of gloves to start off the contest, and they are tense and ready to pull the trigger. When Gordon tries to start off the fight with a knee, Solecki quickly takes him down and assumes full mount about 30 seconds into the bout. Gordon tries to kick him off, so Solecki scoots him to the fence and starts to pound on him from above. Solecki sits in a heavy side control, and Gordon responds by walking off the wall. This is not the best strategy, as Solecki gets one hook in and then the other, fully taking the back of “Flash” in a flash. Solecki whacks Gordon on the side of the head a few times to soften him up and open the neck up for submission, and then elects to squeeze with a face crank when that is not there. As Gordon fights off the grip and kicks off the fence, Solecki smacks him upside the head a few times. Solecki wraps his arm around the chin of his opponent, and he switches arms and the forearm slides under the chin briefly. Gordon is able to fight out of it, but he is still being controlled and taking strikes as he rolls around. In these harsh scrambles, both men suffer serious mat burn on their knees and elbows, and Gordon stands up against the fence. Solecki welcomes this by jumping guard with a guillotine choke, and he drags Gordon down to the ground. “Flash” is able to slowly pull his neck free, and he thinks about paying Solecki back with some strikes before choosing to grind his forehead into his foe’s chin instead. Gordon gets off a few short elbows, and ends the round on top.

Round 2

The gloves get touched to begin the second round, and Gordon tries to lure a firefight but Solecki grabs hold of him and grounds him 10 seconds into the frame. Gordon springs back to his feet thanks to the wall, and he defends with a guillotine choke as Solecki shoots low with a takedown. Solecki pulls the leg out and gets Gordon down again, but they both pop back up after an exchange. Solecki grinds his foe against the wall, and Gordon tries to gain some space with some snappy elbows. Gordon keeps ringing his opponent’s bell with elbows, and this keeps Solecki from getting him down. Solecki drags him from one side of the cage to the other, and he ties Gordon’s legs up to hit a trip and put “Flash” on the mat. Gordon stays active, and he turns about so that he can put Solecki’s back to the floor. Gordon stays in Solecki’s full guard as he lands a few punches from up close, and he fights off a sweep attempt to keep Solecki grounded. A strike from below cuts Gordon on the top of his head, but he pays it no mind as he works Solecki over and smothers him with top control. Miragliotta asks them to work after a stalemate, and Gordon answers his call with a single heavy elbow before getting pulled back to a tight full guard. Gordon rides this position out to the bell, putting an end to a close and grinding round.

Round 3

The last round begins with a glove touch, and this time, Gordon does not succumb to a takedown immediately. Instead, Gordon walks Solecki down and lands a few punches. Solecki tries to go to the body, but Gordon sticks and moves. Solecki does step in with a body kick, but Gordon ignores it so that he can stick his jab in Solecki’s face. Gordon dodges and weaves the counter strikes as he picks and pokes at his opponent, landing a few right hands that get Solecki’s attention. Solecki eats a body kick and ducks out of the way from a couple punches that follow. Gordon sits down on a big punch, and Solecki lets rip a leg kick that makes Gordon pull his leg back quickly. Gordon again tags Solecki with an overhand right, and they bump into one another but Solecki does not try to take the fight down. In a flash, “Flash” shoots in for a takedown of his own, and Solecki stuffs it and gets back to striking range. Gordon again closes in on him to try to drag the fight down, and he trips the leg down to put Solecki on his back briefly. Solecki springs back up, and Gordon lets him get to his feet so that he can land at range. “Flash” triples up on his jab, and he strings together a combination as Solecki is fired up and wants to start trading finally. Solecki uses the strikes to come in close, and they clash heads, opening a large cut on Gordon’s temple that starts to bleed profusely. On the other side, Solecki’s eyebrow towards his nose is split open, and both fight through it without noticing. Gordon walks Solecki down and tries to land a bomb, and Solecki catches him on the way in and tags him with a left. The fight ends with a striking exchange, and it may be a close one.

Mike Breeden (158.5: Missed Weight) vs. Alexander Hernandez (154.5)

Round 1

The five-fight main card starts with a catchweight affair, when “The Great” Hernandez (12-4, 4-3 UFC) comes to blows with “Money” Breeden (10-3, 0-0 UFC). The latter missed weight and therefore forfeited part of his money, but the fight is upon us and referee Mark Smith is as ready as we are for it to start. Hernandez is no interested in any glove touch, and instead comes out swinging. Both men throw hands quickly, with Hernandez breaking up a combination with a kick.

Misha Cirkunov (185.5) vs. Krzysztof Jotko (185.5)

Round 1

Miraculously, Cirkunov (15-6, 6-4 UFC) has successfully made the move from being a large light heavyweight to a massive middleweight, and he will be taking on Jotko (22-5, 6-2-1 UFC) in his new division. Cirkunov has only gone the distance twice as a pro, while Jotko prefers to drag foes into deep waters, so it remains to be seen whose gameplan is better. Referee Herb Dean looks on as the huge 185ers touch gloves, and away we go. Cirkunov walks down his opponent right out of the gate and reaches out with a right hand and a leg kick. Jotko responds with a low kick, and when he tries to follow it up with a left hand, Cirkunov ducks down for a level change. He cannot get Jotko down, and instead pushes the Polish fighter into the wall. Jotko stays upright and breaks free, where he lands a heavy leg kick on the outside. Cirkunov gives chase with a swatting right hand, but when it misses, he drops down for a single. Cirkunov fails on that try and sweeps the leg to drop Jotko to the mat for a moment. Jotko springs back up and gets shoved into the chain-link fence, where the action stalls out. Jotko once more is the one to separate, and he has his leg kicked this time when they break. Jotko returns fire with a kick, and he walks into a short right hand. Jotko suddenly unleashes a quick combination that rings Cirkunov’s bell, and Cirkunov tries to respond but only lands a glancing blow. Both men string together punches, and Jotko ends a combination with a head kick. Cirkunov is stuck throwing single strikes, looking stiff while his opponent is more loose and more willing to chain strikes together. Cirkunov lands a thudding leg kick, and Jotko knows a takedown is coming so he stops it in his tracks. Jotko just misses with a head kick, and he tries to swing a right hand and another kick up high, but that too falls short. Cirkunov sneaks in a right hook, and he takes a stern kick to his calf for his work. As Cirkunov throws a right hand, Jotko ducks down for a takedown, only to get thrown to the ground. Jotko powers back up and the two end the close round in the clinch.

Round 2

Cirkunov has entered a rare second round after the first five minutes elapsed, and he eats a leg kick when trying to march ahead and throw hands. Cirkunov bull-rushes in to clinch up again as he pursues a single-leg takedown, and Jotko grabs the fence to keep himself standing. When tied up, Cirkunov lifts up a knee that collides with the cup, and Jotko grimaces as Dean intervenes to give him a pause. After 45 seconds, Dean restarts them in the same position, but Jotko pushes out immediately after they resume to get back to striking range. The Polish fighter slings a quick head kick, but Cirkunov sees it in time and blocks it. As Cirkunov ambles forward, Jotko sees him advancing and stings him with a few punches including an uppercut that knocks Cirkunov back. Jotko swats with a left hand as Cirkunov’s offense has dwindled, even as the latter walks forward. Jotko times a few punches as Cirkunov rushes in to pursue a takedown, but there is nothing doing for Cirkunov. Jotko connects with a solid winging left hook as Cirkunov tries to close the distance, and he stands Cirkunov up with a right hand. The Latvian pushes back into the clinch, and he gets shoved away as Jotko lands on him. Jotko ignores a leg kick to throw haymakers, and Cirkunov evades them as they try to still find their range. A brief clinch and some inaccurate strikes follow, as they cannot seem to get their offense going. Jotko ducks a head kick to counter with a left hand, and the slow round comes to an end.

Round 3

The final round starts with a short slugfest, as they trade punches and leg kicks. Jotko defends a single, but Cirkunov redoubles his effort and puts his opponent on his back. Jotko scrambles to his knees, and walks his way up the fence only to get pulled back down to his knees. Cirkunov clings to his foe like Saran wrap, and he starts kneeing his man in the gluteus maximus. When Jotko lifts himself up and pulls his hand off the ground, Cirkunov targets his head with a knee. The Latvian is able to once more put Jotko down, and he knees his opponent in the ribs. Jotko looks to explode out of the position, but Cirkunov follows him there. Jotko tries to get some offense off, and when he does, Cirkunov times a perfect takedown. Jotko does not let this position remain, instead springing back up and gaining brief separation. Suddenly, Jotko pursues his own takedown, and he drops Cirkunov to a knee. When Cirkunov stands up, Jotko connects with a left hand and presses him into the wire. Jotko forces a break so that he can lay into Cirkunov, and a salvo of strikes from Jotko include a poke to the eye, forcing Dean to halt the action briefly. Jotko screams at his foe and tells him that he is lying and unfairly taking time to rest. After 75 seconds, Cirkunov can resume competition, and Jotko is fired up and ready to throw bombs. He clips Cirkunov with an uppercut, and Cirkunov ducks into a takedown try but gets shoved back. Jotko continues to land strikes as Cirkunov paws at him, and he has a head kick blocked and a jab that is not. The Polish fighter pressures Cirkunov with an elbow and a low kick before tying him up for a second. Cirkunov shoves him away, but Jotko is not letting him off the hook as he mashes into him and trips him down. One last punch from on top from Jotko is what comes before the final bell, mercifully putting an end to this drag of a 185-pound tilt.

Alex Oliveira (169.5) vs. Niko Price (170.5)

Round 1

Hold on to your (cowboy) hats, because this welterweight battle is about to get crazy. “Cowboy” Oliveira (22-1-1, 2 NC; 11-8, 1 NC UFC) and “The Hybrid” Price (14-5, 2 NC; 6-5, 2 NC UFC), with two no contests apiece and a penchant for madness inside the cage are about to lock their proverbial horns. Referee Mark Smith has laced his running shoes and considered putting on protective gear for all the wild strikes that are bound to come here. The two action-friendly 170-pounders touch gloves before the insanity likely begins. They meet in the middle and Price throws a leg kick. Oliveira throws one of his own, and they connect at the same time. Price is willing to stand right in front of his opponent, and they trade big right hands. Price gets off a few chopping kicks to the knee, and Oliveira tries and fails to counter with an overhand right. “Cowboy” clips Price with a knee, and Price walks through it to pursue a takedown. Oliveira turns him around, trips Price’s legs out, and throws him to the ground. The Floridian manages to use Oliveira’s momentum against him, putting “Cowboy” on his back. Oliveira scrambles and keeps a high guard to hold Price down, and he holds on tight to protect himself from ground-and-pound. Price steps over to half guard, and he slams an elbow into Oliveira’s face. Oliveira does not like this strike, and he scrambles, but ultimately remains on his back as Price grinds an elbow on his jaw and throat. Oliveira holds on with his legs intertwined so that he can land short right hands from off his back, and Price calmly and methodically climbs over and posture up. Oliveira has his toes hooked in the fence to try to defend his position, and he gets warned by Smith and releases his prehensile toe grip. Price begins to elbow Oliveira in the face with short shots, controlling “Cowboy” and maintaining a suffocating top pressure. The first round surprisingly ends, as many expected the fight would be over in the first five-minute frame.

Round 2

The two welterweights clap hands, and Price lands a leg kick on the inside. They give low kicks back at one another, and Price reaches out with a left hand that knocks Oliveira’s head back. Price continues to work the leg, and Oliveira takes a funny step after eating one. “Cowboy” springs forward with a punch, and Price eats it and once more thumps a leg kick home. They just miss with huge hooks that would knock out a bull moose, and Price backs away to continue to batter the leg. Oliveira winds up on a right hand that glances off the side of his foe’s head, and Price does not seem concerned as they stand in front of one another. Price swings and misses as Oliveira is lighter on his feet, and “Cowboy” ducks a high kick and sticks out a few jabs. The Brazilian pays him back with a leg kick, and he catches Price throwing one to tag him with a right hand that sends “The Hybrid” careening to the ground. Oliveira leaps on top to try to finish the job, and Price threatens with a shoulder lock and an armbar off his back. As “Cowboy” twists and turns out of submission danger, Price hunts for a heel hook. Oliveira blasts through the position so that he can land in side control, and Price instantly grabs a wrist to go after a kimura from his back. Price does use this position to get to his knees, but Oliveira welcomes it as he hops on his back like a mean-spirited backpack. Price somersaults through, and Oliveira follows him all the while and gets into his guard before waltzing over to the side and eventually north-south. Oliveira lands a few right hands as he looks for the right angle, and he clubs Price with an elbow. “The Hybrid” kicks his legs and pulls Oliveira back to half guard, and he keeps two-on-one wrist control to ride out much of the round. Oliveira postures up to land heavy hammerfists, and Price goes after his lethal backfists off his back that put Randy Brown away, but “Cowboy” is wise to them and avoids the blows before the horn blares.

Round 3

Price takes the center of the cage to start the last round, and he gets tagged with a left hand but stings Oliveira right back. The legs get kicked, and they both drill the other with heavy punches. Two huge leg kicks and a right hand shake Price up, and “Cowboy” checks one that comes at him. Oliveira stays light on his feet, chops at the calf and dodges a standing backfist that whips past him. Price advances, and a front kick connects with the cup and he lands a right hand as Oliveira lands from a flying knee attempt. Oliveira sends Price staggering back with a right hand, and the punches from Oliveira are making Price’s left eye swell. Price rocks “Cowboy” with a big hook, and Oliveira runs away to get his bearings. The welterweights trade leg kicks, and they throw caution to the wind and put everything they have into their strikes. Oliveira stays bouncing around, gets stung with a left hand and gives Price back a sneaky powerful blow. Price wobbles the legs of his opponent as he throws a few punches on his way in, and when he goes after a takedown, he holds on the fence to keep Oliveira trapped. When he lets go, Oliveira is ready to engage him with big punches. Price gives chase as Oliveira is still fleet-footed, and they blast each other with winging hooks. Oliveira may be gassed but he is still throwing, and Price pushes him back and considers a takedown. Oliveira does not let himself get grounded, and instead swirls around to take the side and get dumped to the ground. Price begins to work his elbow on the Brazilian’s face, and he holds Oliveira’s hand while smacking him with the other. Punches from Price rain down right to the bell and possibly steal the round, and this wild and razor-close fight will end up in the hands of the judges.

Kyle Daukaus (185.5) vs. Kevin Holland (183.5)

Round 1

In the co-main event, two middleweights who have struggled as of late in Holland (21-7, 8-4 UFC) and Daukaus (10-2, 1-2 UFC) will pair off in hopes of staying afloat on the ever-growing roster. Their finish rates are 1% apart, with Holland preferring the knockout while all of Daukaus’ wins inside the distance have come by submission, most of which from a brabo choke. Can Daukaus give Holland fits on the ground, or has “Trailblazer” ironed out those deficiencies? Like referee Dan Miragliotta, we are about to find out after the two touch gloves. Holland begins with a slapping low kick, and he darts forward with a big right hand. Daukaus responds with a few right hands, and he charges in for a takedown try. Holland is ready for it, and he gets pushed to the fence and possibly kneed low. Holland keeps himself upright as he starts talking to the commentary team, and he smiles and boxes Daukaus’ ears. Holland gets dragged to a knee, but he pops back up without concern. Daukaus looks to trip him down, and “Trailblazer” keeps his balance and starts talking more trash. Holland breaks free and finds himself in submission danger when Daukaus pulls for a standing guillotine choke. Holland provides humorous commentary to commentator Daniel Cormier’s commentary, making himself laugh while punching his foe in the side. Daukaus holds on in this stalemate position as neither can advance, and Holland stomps the toes several times until Miragliotta breaks them up. Holland gets off a one-two, and when he leans forward to strike, the two clash heads and Holland falls forward to the ground in a heap. Miragliotta calls for a replay and Daukaus hunts for a brabo choke that he turns into a guillotine. Holland gets back to his knees and stands up, but Daukaus is on his back and he snares a rear-naked choke. The choke is incredibly tight, and Holland grimaces and taps out. There is immediate controversy as Holland was clearly compromised by the clash of heads. There is no bad blood, as they hug it out while the referees and commission officials talk over the next steps. Replay official Herb Dean informs Miragliotta that he could assign the result as a no contest depending on how he feels and reviews the sequence. A lengthy period of confusion follows, and Holland asks for them to run it back no matter the final result. Daukaus is fine with this. It appears that this fight will not be a win for Daukaus, and it is good for the fighters involved that instant replay has been implemented.

The Official Result

Kyle Daukaus vs. Kevin Holland is ruled a No Contest (Accidental Clash of Heads) R1 3:43

Thiago Santos (206) vs. Johnny Walker (204.5)

Round 1

Coming into this light heavyweight headliner, the betting line on this fight not going the distance is over -600 – 6-to-1 odds – and both heavy-handed sluggers have the numbers to back it up. Santos (21-9, 13-8 UFC) will look to show he’s not quite done yet, and he will have to test himself against the high-flying Walker (18-5, 4-2 UFC) in a fight that most are expecting will end quickly. Referee Herb Dean draws the final charge of the night, and he is bracing himself for impact after a spirited glove touch. There are no strikes thrown for the first 30 seconds, and Walker finally engages with a kick to the upper thigh. The stalemate continues until a minute into the round, with a single missed head kick from “Marreta.” Walker kicks at the inside knee as he keeps the center of the cage, and he avoids a spinning wheel kick that whizzes past his head. Walker steps forward with a front kick to the chest, and he aims a low kick before pulling back with a right hand. Walker kicks the leg and again looses a front kick, and he is keeping Santos guessing. Walker hops forward with a leg kick that makes Santos change his stance, but Santos switches it back and gets kicked again. Walker continues to chop this lead leg down, and he dances out of harm’s way when Santos slings a head kick. There is a lot of respect being shown – that is, no strikes thrown from either man – for much of the first round, as Santos swings and misses again with a head kick that is feet off the mark. Walker picks at his Brazilian counterpart’s lead leg, and a front kick slaps into Santos’ chiseled midsection. Walker changes it up with a stomping kick to the knee, and Santos can do nothing but try to back off. Santos has a front kick blocked, and he turns his hips into a thudding leg kick. Walker gets off a few low kicks as Santos gives chase, throwing a few punches but whiffing as the slow round ends.

They continue to trade single kicks as they look to do some damage, and Walker connects with the ball of his foot to the chest. Santos sneaks up a high kick that surprises Walker, but Walker is able to grin and bear it. Several pump-fakes of Walker’s hips force Santos to stay cautious, allowing Walker to dance his way in and land a punch.

Santos just misses with a left hook as they come together, and he swings and whiffs with a spinning wheel kick, but when he lands, he does get off a leg kick. The leg kick totals likely exceed the other significant strikes landed this fight so far. Walker strides forward with a lunging right hand, and Santos avoids it and slaps up a high kick that is narrowly blocked in the nick of time. A multitude of fakes and feints end the round.

Round 5

There is a final touch of gloves to clock in the last round, something that most did not expect would be reached.

A front kick may have bounced off Santos’ cup, but he pays it no mind as he slaps his foe in the face with a head kick. With seconds left in the fight, the wild strikes of Walker fly past his opponent. They show off with capoeira kick attempts, and this dreadful fight finally comes to an end. If there is any solace fight fans can take, it is that this disappointing letdown of a matchup is now over. Next week, the UFC fight card starts earlier than usual, so don’t miss out. We will be here for it, and we hope you are too.
