UFC on FOX 7 *SPOILERS*
Here we go!
Clifford Starks vs. Yoel Romero
Mike Beltran is the referee for this one. Romero circles to the outside in the early going. Starks has a jab for him each time he comes in. Romero just misses on a picture-perfect head kick which would have been trouble if it hit. Romero comes flying in with a picture perfect knee to the jaw. Three right hands to the grounded Starks and one left and Beltran calls off the fight.
Yoel Romero def. Clifford Starks via KO at 1:38 of round one.
Wow, what a start! :w00t: I hope this is a sign of things to come!

That referee scared me, his fu manchu appears to end in 2' braids on each side?!?
Anthony Njokuani vs. Roger Bowling
Herb Dean is the referee for this lightweight fight. Bowling is more active in the opening minute, throwing occasional jabs and kicks. Njokuani seems content to stay out of range. First real exchange comes about two minutes in as Njokuani does damage with a counter flurry. Njokuani catches a Bowling kick and pushes him off-balance, but can't do anything without. He catches another one, but eats a Bowling left for his troubles. Bowling shoots a double and scores a takedown with about 90 seconds left. Njokuani does a solid job neutralizing him and gets back to his feet. Njokuani connects with a high kick and a knee coming off the break.
Methodical pace to start the
