Default UFC 159 *SPOILERS*

Here we go!

Steven Siler vs. Kurt Holobaugh

Round 1:
Gasper Oliver is the referee. Both open orthodox and Holobaugh is taking center position in the cage. Holobaugh presses Siler into the fence and is landing short punches to the body in the clinch. Siler scores a takedown from the clinch and takes Holobaugh's back in the process. Silver snatches Holobaugh off of his base and almost scores the choke, but can't do it. He's landing shot after shot on Holobaugh as the Strikeforce vet tries to stand to escape. Siler still all over him. Holobaugh rolls through and lands an ultra deep rear naked choke, but somehow Holobaugh managed to escape.

Round 2:
Siler is caught in a guillotine right off the break, but he escapes and now works inside Holobaugh's guard. Siler backs off only to pull guard himself as Holobaugh stands. Siler nearly scores a butterfly sweep, but uses it to stand. Holobaugh counters Siler and scores a hard punch, where he tries to follow up with another guillotine but can't. Siler scores and upkick, but Holobaugh responds with hard shots on top and good submission defense. Siler creates some distance and stands. The two wing punches where Siler scores the harder shots, although he's eating a leg kick or two.

Round 3:
Holobaugh lands a few hard inside leg kicks to start the round. Siler scores a right hand and knee to the body and Holobaugh rips his own body shot. The two clinch and Siler is trying to find a takedown. Right elbow over the top lands for Holobaugh as the two go back and forth along the fence. Siler scores his own and a left hook as they separate. Two hard right hands for Holobaugh and while Holobaugh goes for a hip throw, Siler takes his back. Siler holds the position for several minutes and finishes with hard punches.

Steven Siler def. Kurt Holobaugh via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Leonard Garcia vs. Cody McKenzie

Round 1:
Dan Miragliotta is the referee in charge. McKenzie dives on a single and gets Garcia down early. Garcia stands, but without an underhook which lets McKenzie get behind him as they go back to the ground. McKenzie has a body triangle and is fighting for a rear naked choke. Garcia is trying a number of evasive maneuvers, but can only manage to capture guard with McKenzie on top. McKenzie attempts a triangle toward the end of the round, but can't get it.

Round 2:
McKenzie stuffed on first attempt, but a second is successful against the fence. Garcia stands and steps over McKenzie however. Garcia wings a few more shots, but has his back taken standing and is pulled to the ground. And it's back to round one with McKenzie being all over Garcia with Garcia trying to do what he can to survive.

Round 3:
McKenzie reaches for a low single, but is stuffed. And again. Decent jab from McKenzie followed by a head kick that partially scores for Garcia. Another good jab for McKenzie, but is stuffed again on a low single. McKenzie is starting to land hard punches. McKenzie lands another low single and transitions to Garcia's back. Round ends there.

Cody McKenzie def. Leonard Garcia via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27).

What we can't figure out is which judge gave which round to Garcia???


And how were neither of the first two 10-8s?

Bryan Caraway vs. Johnny Bedford

Round 1:
Keith Peterson is the referee. Caraway lands a left hook as both fighters open orthodox. Bedford stops a shot from Caraway and presses forward with missed punches. Right hand scores for Bedford. Bedford slips on a punch and Caraway takes his back while dragging him to the floor. Bedford breaks the body triangle and stands. One-two for Bedford finds the mark. Left hand now, too. Bedford pressing forward and lands a three-punch combo, but misses on a takedown. Caraway scores one of his own.

Round 2:
Caraway shoots from outside twice and can't get it. Right hand and a knee find the mark for Bedford. Two more left hooks and an outside leg kick as well. And another followed by a left rib roaster. Caraway scores on a deep single and passes to half guard. Caraway switches his hips and scores small shots but stays in half guard until the end of the round.

Round 3:
Both fighters open missing lots of strikes. Caraway lands with a right straight. Left hook now for Bedford. And another. Caraway reaches for two shots and can't get it. Caraway presses Bedford into the fence, but Bedford hits a switch to square up his hips. Caraway, however, hits a peek out and is on top. Bedford locks up an armbar attempt, but Caraway scrambles through and is now in Beford's half guard. Caraway sits into a guillotine attempt, but Beford rolls base down. Caraway pushes it through with his hips and moves to mount. Beford is forced to tap.

Bryan Caraway def. Johnny Bedford via submission (guillotine choke) at 4:44 of round 3.

I wondered the same thing, WTH? I've always been partial to Leonard, I was hoping he could pull this one off, I think he might be gone after this loss. And it's not like Cody has a bag of tricks, he's pretty one-dimensional.
