Default UFC on FOX 7 *SPOILERS*

Here we go!


Clifford Starks vs. Yoel Romero

Round 1:
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! I hope this is a sign of things to come!

Anthony Njokuani vs. Roger Bowling

Round 1:
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.

Round 2:
Methodical pace to start the round, with Bowling’s left hand finding a home and Njokuani’s kicks otherwise keeping him at bay. Bowling gets a little too confident, though, and he runs right into a monster left hook which lands right on the button. Bowling falls forward and Dean stops the bout.

Anthony Njokuani def. Roger Bowling via TKO at 2:52 of round two.

T.J. Dillashaw vs. Hugo Viana

Round 1:
John McCarthy is the referee for this bantamweight fight. Dillashaw rushes in and Viana pops him with a jab. Viana tags him again rushing in, but in the resulting scramble, he gets Viana's back. Viana grabs the fence to get back to his feet right in front of McCarthy, which is roughy the 10,000th straight time this has happened in a McCarthy fight. The pace slows a bit after a standup flurry by both guys. Viana ducks a Dillashaw high kick. Dillashaw's nose appears to be cut. Dillashaw misses a big kick but then nails Viana big straight right hand. Viana is scampering backwards. He drops Viana and follows ip with a series of punches to Viana, who's covering up. McCarthy stops the fight.

T.J. Dillashaw def. Hugo Viana via TKO at 4:22 of round one.

Tim Means vs. Jorge Masvidal

Round 1:
Mike Beltran is the referee for this lightweight fight. They simultaneously lands right hands. Then they simultaneously land kicks. Masvidal hasn't been afraid to move in and try to negate Means' height and reach advantage. Means mistimes a spinning backfist and Masvidal tags him on the back end. Masvidal shoots for a single leg and transitions it into a slam. Means scrambles back to his feet, but he's got Masvidal on his back. One minute left. Means shoots in for a single, but Masvidal sprawls it in the closing seconds.

Round 2:
After a quiet opening minute, Masvidal shoots for a single, sticks with it, and finally gets Means to the mat with a trip. Means connects on an upkick and gets back to his feet, but Masvidal opens up with punches to the head and body, gets a takedown, and opens up with his ground and pound. Means flips over and Masvidal gets his back. Means works his way back to his feet, but Means takes him right back down and lands a series of elbows. He doesn't appears to be close to finishing Means, however. One minute left. Means landing elbows from the bottom and trying to find position to work for a submission. Both guys throw elbows in the final seconds of the round.

Round 3:
Means pops Masvidal with a big left, but doesn't follow up. Means catches him with another left and Masvidal answers with a two-punch combo. Masvidal shoots a single leg, Means connects with his other knee, Masvidal hangs on and ultimately scores a takedown. The right side of Masvidal's face is cut open, can't tell where the cut is from my vantage point at cageside. Masvidal wtih another takedown. Two minutes left. Another frantic exchange with Masvidal throwing right hands from the top and Means with elbows from the bottom. One minute left, as one of the crazier striking battles within a guard in quite some time plays out. Means worlks for a Kimura with 20 seconds left and ends up on top. He's raining down punches as the round ends.

Jorge Masvidal def. Tim Means via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

Joseph Benavidez vs. Darren Uyenoyama

Round 1:
Herb Dean is the referee for this flyweight fight. I'm calling these guys "JB" and "DU" for this one. JB is more active in the early going. He catches a DU kick and drops him, then lands a big left. He briefly gets in DU's guard, then gets back to his feet. JB steps back and DU stands. JB apparently lands a low blow, and Dean calls time out. They're right back to action. JB lands a kick to DU's ribs. DU with a low kick, JB with a big right which sends DU to the mat. DU whiffs on an up kick. Back standing, midway through the round. DU lands a body kick. JB with a two-punch combo and a body kick. JB drops DU with a big head kick. DU works his way back to his feet in the ensuing scramble. A Greco clinch struggle breaks out, and it ends with JB scoring the takedown. JB is cut over his right eye. JB misses a head kick. One round in, JB simply looks like the better fighter in every aspect.

Round 2:
JB keeps DU guessing by mixing up mutli-punch combos and kicks. He rocks DU backwards with a left hand. A scramble ends with DU getting JB's back. But it ends with DU on the mat. JB follows in throwing haymakers like few flyweights can. Back to their feet, midway through the round. JB with an uppercut and a straight left. More of the same, fighting in the standup, JB initiating all of the offense. JB lands a pair of vicious body kicks. He follows with a right hand to the ribs which crumbles DU. JB lands several punches to the grounded DU and Dean stops the fight.

Joseph Benavidez def. Darren Uyenoyama via TKO at 4:50 of round two.


Wow, another great fight!

Makes me wonder how our JB is, I miss his posts...
