Default UFC 146 *SPOILERS*

Here we go!

Mike Brown vs. Daniel Pineda

Round 1:
They touch gloves in the center and circle around each other cautiously to start. Yves Lavigne is our referee for this one. Pineda slips on a head kick attempt. Brown lets him get up, then goes to work with some looping rights. Knee by Pineda hurts Brown, but responds by driving Pineda across the cage with a takedown attempt that eventually plants Pineda on his back against the fence. Brown works hooks from the top, but Pineda reverses and puts him on his back. Pineda tries for mount, and Brown uses the opportunity to get to his feet. Solid left hook by Pineda gets through Brownís defenses. Pineda shoots in low and Brown flips him over, landing on top in the final minute of the round. Pineda gets to his feet just as the horn sounds.

Round 2:
Pineda looks energized at the start of the second. He fires off a flying knee and Brown answers with a series of hooks. Pineda keeps the pressure on and then shoots for a takedown that brings Brown down. Brown is up quickly and has a hold of Pinedaís leg. Pineda tries for a knee with the free leg and gets dumped on his head with a loud crash. Pineda sweeps and Brown gets to his feet. Brown batters Pineda with a series of damaging blows in the clinch. That seemed to take a lot of the starch out of Pineda. Weíre down to 90 seconds left in the round, and both men are looking weathered. Brown slips on a kick and Pineda begins to charge in, then goes down hard. Brown pushes him onto his back and does some work with elbows from Pinedaís guard in the last minute of the round. Pineda fires back from the bottom, and Brown is cut around his eye. That doesnít look good, and thereís the horn.

Round 3:
Big cheer from the crowd to start the third. Itís been a good scrap to start us off. They trade in the center in the opening seconds of the final round, then Brown backs Pineda up against the fence and drops him with a big knee. Pineda looked like he might be done for a second, but heís recovered quickly and gets Brown in his guard. Brownís staying busy from the top with punches and elbows. Pineda thinks about a triangle choke, but canít get it. Brown keeps working as Pineda slips off to the side and then to his back, a nightmare in slow motion. A minute left in the fight, and Pineda has the body triangle locked on. He likely needs a finish to win this, and Brown knows it. Heís in survival mode, and time is on his side. Ten seconds left, but Pineda canít even come close to sinking a choke.

Mike Brown def. Daniel Pineda via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Kyle Kingsbury vs. Glover Teixeira

Round 1:
Texeira slips a jab and hammers Kingsbury with a hard two-punch combo. He follows up with a hook and a straight right moments later. Seems like Texeira does not want to be here very long tonight. An uppercut by Texeira drops Kingsbury, and Texeira takes his back after some punches from the side. Kingsbury rolls and Texeira pounds on him some from the top. Kingsbury gets sloppy while looking for an escape and Texeira locks up the arm triangle choke. He slides off to the side and tightens it up. Kingsbury has no escape, and he has to tap.

Jacob Volkmann vs. Paul Sass

Round 1:
Herb Dean is our referee for this one. He gives the signal and weíre underway. Sass starts out in a crouched stance, clearly mindful of Volkmannís takedowns. Just the same, Volkmann gets him on his back about 30 seconds into the fight. So much for that approach. Sass looks like heís thinking triangle choke, as he often is, but switches to on oma plata. Volkmann is out easily and back on top in Sassís guard. Sass slaps on a triangle -- his bread and butter -- and Volkmann is stuck. Sass attacks the arm as well, and thatís all for Volkmann. Seems like he might have injured his arm in the process.

Wow! Nice submission, that was a good win for him. I'm not familiar with Paul Sass but Volkmann was a very tough opponent; I was really impressed with Paul's self-deprecating modesty during the post-fight interview with Joe.

These last two fights were fast. 1:53 and 1:54 and done! Impressive, both of them.

Bonnie, you started your thread first! I'm sorry, I was so busy copying and pasting by the time I was through you already had the post up. Should we flip a coin?

Yeah, if you blinked you missed those last 2 fights.

No, no flipping! We'll use yours! I didn't see one so I thought I'd start it...should have checked with you first since you usually do it for us. Sorry!

Thanks again, Cathy!

Well here is my recap video for anyone of interest. I was mega pleased that Paul Sass won and gave him fighter of the card. I am also pleased Stefan Struve won, although I didnt think that he would, both of these people I used to watch fight live regularly at Cage Gladiators in liverpool just four or five years ago, every couple of months. Before they were famous.

Im pleased Dan Hardy won...but he has to have a streak of winning now if its to mean much other then a stay of execution
