Chris Beal vs. Neil Seery
Round 1Seery misses with his first overhand right but puts a kick on Beal’s lead leg afterward. The Irish southpaw presses foward in the opening minute, looking to land the right hand, but Beal is evading the strikes. Beal comes back to slug Seery with a right hand, then a couple jabs. Seery gets one back with a right hook counter and then takes a punch on the cup, but he recovers without much of a pause in the action. Beal shoots for a double-leg in the center of the cage and puts Seery on the canvas near the fence about two minutes into the round. Seery shifts underneath, trapping Beal’s right arm while working from open guard. After taking three or four punches to the face, Seery pops back to his feet and escapes Beal’s grasp. Beal, still on his back foot, sticks a jab in Seery’s face. Seery answers with a straight left hand, takes another chopping kick to his right leg. Beal keeps the leg kicks coming as the round enters its final 90 seconds. Seery continues to push forward, now switching up his strikes with a body kick and one to the leg. Beal answers with a body kick of his own, and Seery puts a right hand in his breadbasket at the horn.

Round 2The round picks up where the last left off, with Seery pushing the action and moving Beal toward the fence. Beal catches Seery with a finger poke just beneath the right eye, and again Seery recovers quickly. As soon as action resumes, Seery tries to put a kick across Beal’s thighs and winds up kicking him on the cup. Beal takes a minute to get his wind back and action resumes with just over four minutes left. Seery lands an uppercut and a leg kick, the latter of which is caught by Beal but soon released. When the flyweights get in close quarters, Seery wraps his right arm around Beal’s neck and jumps guard with a tight guillotine choke in place. Beal hurls himself to the ground, trying to knock Seery loose, and the American winds up in top position, where he’s able to squeeze his head loose. Seery tries a kimura from underneath but loses that as well, and now it’s Beal dropping ground-and-pound from his opponent’s open guard. Seery starts throwing elbows from underneath, targeting Beal’s forehead and the top of his head while referee Kevin Sataki warns to mind the back of the head. Beal stands, allowing Seery to try and scramble up, and now Beal tries a guillotine of his own. Beal soon releases the choke, and the 125ers scramble up. Seery tries a takedown, stuffed by Beal, but Seery soon hits a sweep to get on top anyway. Beal sweeps him back underneath with 20 seconds on the clock, and now Seery attempts an arm-triangle choke from the bottom, but it’s not there. Beal finishes the round on top, dropping punches.

Round 3Seery comes forward swinging but has his punches blocked by Beal’s defensive guard. He keeps moving ahead and pulls Beal to the ground with a slow-motion double-leg. Beal gets right back up, eating a few right hands from Seery as he stands and circles away. Beal is looking tired, stumbling as he moves around the perimeter of the fence, while Seery stays busy with combination punching. Seery lands a grazing overhand right and takes a right hook counter on the other side. A standing elbow scores for Seery behind a knee, then an uppercut and a whipping right hook. Beal is on the run midway through the round, and Seery lets him off the hook a bit as they reset in the center. Beal defends a takedown attempt from Seery but winds up shoved against the cage. Seery decks him with an elbow on the release, and Beal gets him back with an uppercut. Down to the final minute now, Seery continues to move forward, and Beal hits him with a pair of leg kicks. Beal gets a takedown with 30 seconds left, and Seery immediately starts throwing elbows from his back. Beal swings back with right hands, missing with most of them, and the flyweights finish the fight swinging hands on the ground.

Round 1Erokhin stalks from the center of the cage, moving Pesta around the outside of the cage and blasting the Czech fighter with a couple huge left hooks. A right hand on the temple nearly buckles Pesta’s legs, but he stays standing and the “Russian Bear” keeps chasing him down. Face already reddened 90 seconds into the bout, Pesta tries to slow Erokhin with a Thai clinch and lands a knee up the center. Erokhin keeps coming, however, and puts more punches on his opponent’s mug before Pesta changes levels to try a double-leg on the fence. After a struggle, Pesta lifts and slams Erokhin to the ground. Pesta lands in cross side control on Erokhin’s right, trapping the Russian’s right arm and dropping elbows on his unprotected face. Erokhin tries to post and stand, but Pesta traps his legs and keeps him on a knee. One minute left and Erokhin is taking some hard knees to the body as he stands up and gets slammed right back down by Pesta. The Czech fighter spends the final 40 seconds on top, landing sporadic punches while trying to free his right arm.

Round 2Pesta keeps Erokhin out of range for most of the opening minute of round two, using a front kick to fend off the oncoming shorter man. Erokhin is off to a much slower start, sending punches off Pesta’s forearms. Pesta shoots for a takedown about 90 seconds in, gets stuffed and gives Erokhin a knee to the body in the Thai plum before releasing. Pesta connects with a straight right which opens a cut on the outside of Erokhin’s left eye. A telegraphed shot from Pesta is stuffed by Erokhin at first, but the Czech keeps after it and brings down Erokhin on the second effort. With two minutes on the clock, Pesta begins dropping elbows, worsening the damage to Erokhin’s left eye while working from open guard.

The big men stand back up for a moment, but Pesta quickly drags Erokhin back to the mat, and now it’s Pesta working from side control on Erokhin’s left. Pesta traps Erokhin’s left arm and leans across to continue dropping punches from the crucifix position. That’s how they spend the final minute of the fight, Pesta pinning down Erokhin, grinding with forearms and throwing right hands.

Bektic works from Redmond’s half guard, scoring with punches and elbows before Redmond is able to scramble up. It lasts only a few seconds, as Bektic keeps hold of “Redser” and drags him right back to the mat for some more ground-and-pound. Midway through the round, Redmond gets back up for a split second, again only to be whipped back to the ground. Bektic is heavy on top but unable to advance past Redmond’s active guard for any significant amount of time. An elbow opens up a large cut on Redmond’s forehead from which blood begins leaking into his eyes. Bektic finishes the round on top, in Redmond’s closed guard.

Redmond tries to push off the cage with his feet, drawing a warning from referee Neil Hall about lacing his toes in the chain link. Redmond pushes off the fence and gets to a knee, then gets tripped right back down. Bektic is scoring with heavy left hands now, posturing up and blasting away while Redmond attempts to cling on and negate the space from underneath.

Bektic nearly establishes full mount, but Redmond keeps a knee in to block the pass, and now it’s Bektic back in Redmond’s butterfly guard, throwing body shots. Bektic finally gets to side control again with 70 seconds on the clock, and he continues to pepper Redmond’s face with short punches down the stretch while referee Hall calls for action.

Taisumov lands a few more hard leg kicks, a spinning-back kick to the midsection and then a switch kick to the gut. Christodoulou continues to inch forward and walks into a front kick to the chin. Taisumov grabs hold of his man and dumps him to the ground with ease in the center of the cage. Again, Taisumov wants Christodoulou back on his feet. An outside thigh kick lands for Taisumov, then Christodoulou blocks a head kick with his glove. Another spinning kick connects to Christodoulou’s gut, but he keeps coming at Taisumov. A quick two-punch combo backs up Christodoulou momentarily. He tries jabbing at Taisumov, who scores with more punches and another spinning kick to the body before slamming Christodoulou back down.

Robertson clips Aliev with a left hook on the ear as the Russian presses forward to clinch up. Working in the clinch on the fence, Aliev scores with a couple knees to the body before the welterweights split. Robertson lands a pair of leg kicks but he’s still coming up short with most of his punches. Aliev puts a spinning-back kick on Robertson’s midsection, but he turns around too slow and leaves his hands down, allowing Robertson to club him with a massive overhand left.

Tumenov catches another kick and tries for a takedown, but again Musoke pulls his leg free and makes Tumenov pay with punches. Tumenov catches yet another kick and throws a right hand; this time, Musoke knows it’s coming and blasts Tumenov back with a lovely straight left that leaves the Russian blinking. Musoke continues to redden the body of Tumenov with kicks; Tumenov keeps firing back with punches, but Musoke is certainly getting the better of the striking through three minutes. With 70 seconds left, Tumenov counters a Musoke kick with a nice right straight. Musoke backs him up with switch and front kicks, rushes into range and puts a pair of right hooks on Tumenov’s chin.

Musoke blocks a couple high kicks but eats a straight left from Tumenov down the center, splitting Musoke’s gloves. Now it’s a right hook scoring for Tumenov, and another behind a jab midway through the round. Musoke’s face is showing damage now, his left eye dripping blood after absorbing repeated right hands.
