Round 2
Njokuani continues to flash his quick left hand in Barboza’s face at the start of the second. Kicks to the body and head follow, and it’s Njokuani taking the driver’s seat after a rocky start. Turning side kick lands for Barboza, but Njokuani catches a follow-up kick to the body and drives Barboza to the floor. The Brazilian takes a few punches as he stands back up. Njokuani drills his man with a hard spinning elbow. Barboza is having trouble with the range and counters of Njokuani, and is landing mostly leg kicks. Njokuani clinches and they trade knees before splitting. Barboza ducks for a single-leg, lifts Njokuani and slams him against the base of the fence. He flattens Njokuani out with 10 seconds to go, but Njokuani stands just before the end of the round.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Njokuani
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Njokuani
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Njokuani

Barboza ended the fight with an awesome spinning head kick. Great fight.

Round 3
The strikers are sniping at the start of the final round. Njokuani looks loose as he counters Barboza’s punches lands inside thigh kicks. Nice flurry from Barboza, but it doesn’t stun Njokuani as it did in the opening frame. Njokuani leaps in with a knee to the gut of Barboza. Jabs and kicks flowing from Barboza, who looks to be in control with 90 seconds to go. Barboza isn’t giving up though, pushing forward and landing turning side-kicks. He catches a knee from Njokuani and finishes a takedown against the fence with 20 seconds to go. Njokuani gets to his feet and eats a massive spinning back-kick just before the horn. He stays vertical, but on wobbly legs. Barboza raises his hands as though he stole the fight with the kick, but it’s going to be a close call.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-10 (29-29 Draw)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Barboza (29-28 Barboza)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-10 (29-29 Draw)

Official scores: All three judges have it 29-28 in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Edson Barboza.

Luis Artur Cane Jr. vs. Eliot Marshall
Round 1
Dan Miragliotta is the referee for the evening’s final preliminary contest. The 205-pounders are swinging heavy leather early, Cane getting the better of the exchanges as Marshall looks for an opening to attempt a takedown. Cane drops the American with a hard left hand and swarms all over Marshall. Cane lands a dozen punches from the top as Marshall struggles to survive. After a brief break, Cane goes back after it, slamming hammer fists into Marshall’s head as Marshall tries to roll for a kneebar. Marshall is no longer intelligently defending himself from Cane’s assault, and Miragliotta steps in to halt the beating at 2:15 of the first round.



Did anyone else think Dan should have stopped the fight a little earlier? Holy cow.

Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Brendan Schaub
Round 1
Schaub comes with a kick to the body and a few short uppercuts. The younger righty ties up with the veteran and they exchange thumping shots to the ribs. Referee Herb Dean splits them up and issues Schaub a “hard warning” for strikes that strayed to the back of Cro Cop’s head. Schaub brings Cro Cop down and eats an upkick as he stands from the Croatian’s guard. The American dives back in and Mirko closes up his guard, tying up Schaub’s arm briefly to stifle the punches. It doesn’t last long, as the “Hybrid” postures up and slams right hands into Cro Cop’s face. Filipovic hits the switch and scrambles to his feet, shoving Schaub into the fence with a minute to go in the round. Schaub drives forward and tries to trip Cro Cop down, but the striker hops backward and stays up. Not much action in the clinch down the stretch. Schaub lands a few knees to the gut and an uppercut before the horn.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Schaub
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Schaub
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Schaub

Round 2
Cro Cop fires a left high kick that’s partially blocked and Schaub takes him straight down. As Schaub stands, Mirko lands an upkick to the face. Herb Dean stops the action and issues Cro Cop a warning of his own, as Schaub’s knee was barely touching the mat (while his hand grabbed the fence) when the upkick landed. They resume and go back to the clinch. Schaub bullies Cro Cop into the fence and tries to come over the top with elbows. Cro Cop reverses and the heavyweights trade knees up the gut. Schaub’s bleeding profusely from the nose as they jockey for position along the perimeter. Herb Dean breaks them up and deducts a point from Schaub for further strikes to the back of Cro Cop’s head. Filipovic closes out the round with more elbows from the clinch. Replays show it was one of those strikes that cracked Schaub’s nose and cut him above the left eye.

TJ De Santis scores the round 9-9
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Filipovic
Mike Whitman scores the round 9-9

Round 3
Filipovic lands a low kick early in the final round and Schaub needs a break to recover. Upon resuming, he plows Cro Cop to the mat in the center of the cage. Filipovic ties up the right arm of Schaub and scrambles up, only to be taken right back down. Schaub works to pass, can’t and Cro Cop stands again. Two minutes to go and it’s still looking like anyone’s fight. Cro Cop initiates the clinch, but doesn’t do much from the position. They tie up again, and break just as quickly. Cro Cop stuffs a long shot from Schaub and tags him on the way up. Suddenly, Schaub lands a winging right hand behind the ear of Filipovic and the Croatian crumbles to the mat. Herb Dean rushes in to save the helpless Pride vet from further punishment at 3:44 of the third round.
