Yushin Okami vs. Buddy Roberts

Round 1:
Roberts looks fairly comfortable early with his striking, hitting Okami from distance with a variety of techniques. Okami has enough and closes the distance. He secures a body lock but Roberts manages to stay on his feet. Finally, after over a minute, Okami drags him down. Roberts is active from the bottom, working to stop Okami from doing anything. Okami manages to pass to half-guard and then side control with 60 seconds left. Small punches from the top as he briefly thought about moving to mount. With :25 left, he gets the position. Roberts gives up his back and Okami opens up with strikes. Ref Herb Dean warns Roberts to fight back, and it's a race against the clock for Okami to finish. Dean thinks about it, but lets it go to the horn. It's an easy 10-9 for Okami, though Roberts pops right back up to his feet at the end of the round.

Round 2:
A big left hand by Roberts early in the round. He doesn't look the worse for wear. Okami gets inside for the clinch again. He has Roberts down against the cage. Roberts threatens with the guillotine and as Okami tries to escape, Roberts is able to get to his feet. But it's a brief respite. Okami drags him back down again. Full mount for Okami with 2:40 left. Roberts gives up his back again. This is like a repeat of round one except Okami now has an eternity of time to work with. Okami firing off punches from the top. Roberts has his hands up to block the blows but after several dozen, Herb Dean has seen enough and stops it.

It wasn't a thunderous display of ground and pound as Roberts was back to his feet instantaneously after Dean pulled Okami off of him, but it's clear Okami had him trapped and the damage was only going to worsen.

Winner: Yushin Okami via TKO, Rd. 2 (3:05)

Jake Shields vs. Ed Herman

Round 1:
Shields throwing body kicks early. Herman rushes in and initiates a clinch which is a curious strategy. Perhaps Herman hopes to wear out Shields early as he's had some stamina issues in recent fights. Also worth noting: this fight is at altitude. With 3:30 left, Shields takes Herman down. Herman is back to his feet 30 seconds later though. The two fight a grueling battle for position against the cage. And against the cage they stay switching positions for second after second, minute after minute.

Round 2:
Herman throws a couple of right hands and then initiates a clinch again. Shields takes him down quickly. Shields looks for a kimura. Herman works free. Shields is working to step over into mount. Occasionally, he drills Herman with elbows. This is a Shields kind of round for sure. The crowd is booing but Shields is in side control, so there won't be a standup. Herman is able to get it back to full guard. Herman throws elbows from the bottom. Shields moves back to half-guard. Shields with punches from the top and it's his round 10-9.

Round 3:
Between rounds, Herman's corner told him not to initiate the clinch. He comes out with jabs but Shields comes inside and forces it for him. This time, Herman throws an elbow and backs away. Herman gets a brief takedown but lets Shields up. Shields goes low and puts Herman on his back. Plenty of time to work. Herman to half-guard, and then to mount with two minutes left. Not a place anyone wants to be against Shields. Herman gets it back to full guard with minimal damage but time is running low. A few strikes from the top. It's Shields' round, 10-9 to end a fairly lackluster through grueling fight.

Winner: Jake Shields via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)
