Round 1:
Mario Yamasaki is the third man in for this fight. Ebersole makes a half-hearted shot for a takedown and Head sprawls it. The scenario repeats. Head lands a right to the body and a knee.

Round 3:
Ebersole, who's fighting for the second time in a month, looks like he's running out of gas. Twice he goes for takedowns, and both times gets nothing. I think that makes him 0-for-771 on the fight.

They're back standing with just over two minutes left. Hey, whaddya know, Ebersole badly misses with a takedown attempt. Back to their feet.

Round 1:
Yves Lavigne is the referee for this heavyweight showdown. Jordan looks wary of Kongo's range early. Kongo comes at Jordan, but Jordan ends up bulling Kongo toward the cage.

Round 3:
Kongo once again comes out with a knee, but Jordan ties him up. The crowd's getting restless as Kongo again pins Jordan to the fence, throwing the occasional knee. They break, Kongo throws a right, and they clinch again. Jordan looks like he's not ready for this level and if Kongo's gatekeeper status wasn't yet etched in stone, it is now. Jordan looks exhausted on the break, throwing a couple slow-motion punches, but instead of engaging, Kongo ties him up again. Two minutes left. Jordan keeps putting a hand on the mat to technically down himself and avoid the knee.
