Here's the card:

Jens Pulver vs. Brian Davidson
Drew McFedries vs. Darryl Cobb
Rory Markham vs. Rudy Bears
Joe Wilk vs. Jesse Zeugin
John Ott vs. Mike Glynn
Bobby Cooper vs. Nick Budig
Sean Wilson vs. Deryck Ripley

The first figth (Ripley/Wilson) was quick. Ripley landed a huge power double, landing straight into side control. Maintain position really well, then passed beautifully into mount. Wilson bucked & rolled, giving up his back where Ripley tried to lock in the body triangle. He wasn't quite able to secure it & Wilson was able to shake him off the top. Ripley threatened with a triagnle, but wasn't able to lcok it up before WIlson postured up & got to his feet.

Then The Mouth (who's announcing along with Trigg) mentioned that these 2 hard fought 4yrs ago & that Wilson had won by kneebar. Not 5sec after he says that, Wilson drops down & grabs the fight-ending toe-hold.

Joe "the Nose" Wilk quickly clinches up on the cage to avoid Zuegin's striking and is eventually able to land a nice trip to take it to the mat & ends up in Jesse's half-guard. He eventually passes to side control & then to knee-on-belly. Zuegin tries to make space, but The Nose dives in for a Darce & gets the tap.

The Mouth occasionally makes a pretty funny comment. He was talking about how Jesse Zuegin once won by guillotine in 13sec: "That's faster than it takes to choke on a steak!" :laugh:

Now we've got Bobby Cooper vs. Nick Budig. Budig takes center cage & starts opening up early, knocking Cooper's mouthpiece flying. After the restart, Nick again pushes forward, wobbling "Super Duper" Cooper with a flurry of punches. Bobby begins finding the range with his jab & leg kicks, but Budig continues to stalk forwards. Cooper lands a double-liver kick. By the end of the round, Nick's hands are much lower & he's moving slower & just slinging without much confidence. 10-9 Cooper.

Nick still has no answer for Bobby's jab. Halfway through the fight, we haven't even seen a clinch yet. Budig's eye is nearly swollen shut from the jab. Nick drops Bobby, but decides not to follow him down. A bit of a flurry at the end of the round, but Cooper easily takes it again, 10-9.

Nick comes out strong & lands some big punches, trying to finish, but Cooper shrugs it off & answers with a high-knee in the clinch. Cooper is landing kicks that make Budig wins & limp. "You could blindfold that left eye with dental floss at this point". Budig is plodding on a beat up leg while Bobby dances around, changing angles & landing strike after strike.

Should be a 30-27 win for Cooper.

Nice job on the play-by-play, Ben, thx. I forgot it was tonight so I missed the first 3 fights. Now I'm looking at Trigg's ugly mug. :laugh:

Now for the first of the Rosholt brothers:

Jared Rosholt vs. Kirk Grinlinton

A little easy striking to begin, but Jafed blasts a double & lands right into mount, allowing him to immediately posture up for the TKO.

"Expert" Frank Trigg can't be bother to congratulate though, he has to say how dumb Jared was for doing any striking. :rolleyes:

Daryl Cobb vs. Rudy Bears. Btw, I know the card imposted is different than the fights actually taking place. Apparently Rory Markham & Drew McFedries both had to pull out due to injury, so the card got shuffled.

Both men start out with some probing leg kicks. Cobb tried a spinning back kick & slipped, but was able to jump back to his feet before Rudy could capitalize. Cobb lands a big punch & follows in, only to be tagged & dropped. He grabs an instinct single. Bears throws some GnP, then tries for an RNC, but Cobb shakes him off & almost reserves. Rudy is able to maintain top position & passes to mount, lands some more punishment, forcing Cobb to roll & give up the back, allowing for the fight-ending Rear Naked Choke.

Now comes John Ott vs. Jake Rosholt.

Ott claim to "fame" is that he lost to Bobby Lashley 2 months ago. Woo-hoo? :blink:

Ott comes out swinging with everything including a spinning backfist before trying for a takedown, which Jake shrugged off. Back on their feet, Rosholt throws a kick which John catches & uses to put Rosholt on his back. Jake right back up & attempts his own TD which is stuff. The trade strikes, but Jake is finally able to get a takedown. He passes to side control & eventually mount where he begins throwing the GnP. He lands a big elbow & cuts Ott on the forehead. Another big elbow elbow which seems to have opened a cut under the eye now. Easily Jake's round, 10-9, thanks to the GnP.

Ott hands are low to start the 2nd. He's grunting a lot & seems to be muscling it a lot. The Voice tries to say he's just using a "ki-ai". Jake gets an easy TD & lands in side control begins delivering chipping elbows. Jake gets knee on belly, but gives it up. Ott was able to roll out to his feet, but Jake puts him right back down. In side control, tries to pass to mount, but gets caught in half guard. Jake transitions through dominant positions, including side, mount, north/south, etc., before ending the round back in half-guard

Personal pet peeve: 2sec after they hit the ground & the ref immediately starts in with "get busy, don't rest!". Jake's got full mount & the guy's threatening to stand 'em up! :banghead:

Jake tags Ott with a right. Both men through simultaneous kicks & Jake rebounds with another takedown. Ott stands up & Jake times a high kick perfectly. Tot's wobbly & taking a lot of damage. John ends up being tossed to the floor by Jake. The ref pauses & brings a doc in to check out the plethora of cuts on Ott's face. The doc let's him continue (love the heart, but terrible decision by the MD). "Look at the blood just pissing out of his forehead!" Jake lands another TD & pins him against the cage. Ott tries to stand-up & Jake throws a knee, but times it poorly & catches Ott before he clears the ground. After a dominating performance, Rosholt loses by DQ.

Frustration because the doc should have done his job 2min ago & stopped because of the cuts, but instead let it continue & now Ott's even worse off.

John Ott is now going to be the man that endured 15min of punishment from Lashley and the guy that a doctor & referee hung out to dry.

That fight made me sick to my stomach. I couldn't believe they let it continue for so long. Then that eejit Trigg gets out there and says words to the effect "I know you didn't mean to throw that knee". What a load of @#$%^.

Ott will be lucky if he's not permanently damaged in some way.

I don't think meant Jake meant to throw an illegal knee, but he undoubtedly wanted to KO that guy. I really blame the doc & ref for failing to do their jobs.
