Dan Hardy vs. Anthony Johnson
Round 1
Josh Rosenthal is the referee for this welterweight co-main event. A tentative touch of gloves begins bout. Johnson fires off an inside leg kick and then tries to go outside. Hardy looks a bit stiff in the early going, shaking out his hands. One minute in, Johnson drops Hardy with a left high kick and pounces as the Brit falls along the fence. Johnson gets a headlock and controls Hardy as they stand, then drives him back down to the ground. Hardy has full guard this time and ties Johnson up, but Johnson busts free and lets loose with a few big shots. Johnson lays a forearm across Hardy’s throat and throws a couple short hammer fists. Nice head and neck control from Johnson is stifling Hardy’s offense from his back. Hardy goes for a triangle-armbar as Johnson postures up, but “Rumble” breaks it. Johnson dives back in, looks to pass to the side, and Hardy turns to his right to frame up a kimura. Johnson muscles out of it and works from Hardy’s half-guard with a minute left. Hardy’s corner calls for him to slip out the back door, but he can’t hit the switch and Johnson finishes on top.

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

Round 2
Johnson ducks inside and puts Hardy down against the fence with a single-leg about 30 seconds into the round. The KeyArena crowd disapproves of the decision and begins booing immediately. Johnson works from full guard, volume punches to the ribs, and Hardy again looks for a kimura. Midway through the round and there’s a stalemate, as Johnson really has cause for concern with his left arm. Hardy relents momentarily, but goes right back to it. Johnson gets the arm loose and pummels with elbows from half-guard. More elbows and punches come from the top until Rosenthal stands them up with 30 seconds left. Johnson scores another takedown before the horn.

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

Round 3
Another takedown from Johnson opens the final frame, and it’s another kimura attempt from Hardy. Some short punches to the side of Johnson’s head from Hardy, who goes for and abandons the kimura once more. Johnson turns the corner and takes the back of Hardy, who stands and absorbs knees to the thighs. Close-quarters head kick from Johnson, who glances at the clock and takes Hardy down again. Now he’s on Hardy’s back with both hooks in, punching away. The crowd doesn’t like it at all and responds with a chorus of boos with 1:40 remaining. Johnson is riding high with a body triangle. He puts Hardy on his back and switches to an arm-triangle choke, but Hardy defends ably. Johnson switches to a neck crank and can’t get the tap there either. Johnson finishes the fight with Hardy in the headlock and should be on his way to a unanimous decision win.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Johnson (30-27 Johnson)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Johnson (30-27 Johnson)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Johnson (30-27 Johnson)

Official scores: The judges’ cards read 30-27 across the board for the winner by unanimous decision, Anthony Johnson.

Phil Davis vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Round 1
Herb Dean draws officiating duties for tonight’s light heavyweight main event. Davis going to the body and head with kicks in the tense opening minute. He rips a front kick to the chest of Nogueira, then steps in with a knee, but eats Nogueira’s counter right hand. The 205’ers clinch against the fence with Davis on the outside, driving a dozen or more knees into Nogueira’s legs. They disengage and Davis circles the outside. Nogueira throws a murderous right that misses. Davis ducks in and has a takedown stuffed, but gets Nog against the cage. Nogueira shucks him off. Davis goes low for another double-leg and gets stifled. Davis gets clipped with a right hand as he fires off a high kick. Nogueira stuffs a shot, falls backward onto his rear anyway, but gets up before Davis can pounce. Another hard right gets through for Nogueira, who sprawls on another shot from Davis with 20 seconds to go. Outside leg kick from Nogueira before the round ends.

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

Round 2
Davis goes back to his body kicks and both feint and twitch. He slips on one, but gets right back up and plants another on Nogueira’s chest. Nogueira gets off a one-two, then a right hand as Davis wades in to shoot. Davis goes high with a kick and shoots in lightning-fast behind it, but still can’t drag the Brazilian down. With exactly two minutes left, Davis finally spins Nogueira down in the center of the cage. He postures up and lands a single right hand to the jaw of Nogueira as he dives back in. Davis backs up and Nogueira scrambles to stand, but Davis pounces and takes his back. He drags Nogueira down against the fence and tees off with punches both over the top and under the arm. Nogueira turtles and eats another dozen punches, along with some knees to the body, before the end of the round.

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

Round 3
A touch of gloves begins the final frame. Davis circles the outside until he leaps into the center with a flying knee, then a blocked right high kick. The wrestler grabs a single-leg and brings Nogueira down on the logo in the center of the cage. Nogueira tries to scramble up and Davis drives him right back down, same as the end of the previous round, driving punches from side control. Davis works from half-guard until Nogueira shoves him off with half the round left. Nogueira catches a kick and sends a left down the pipe. Another punch sends Davis shooting, but Nogueira resists. The next single-leg is successful and Davis takes top position with two minutes to go. Nogueira is shrimping, keeping Davis at bay with his legs, but the Brazilian vet needs a finish here. Davis stacks Nogueira up and finishes the fight there.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Davis (30-27 Davis)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Davis (30-28 Davis)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Davis (30-28 Davis)

Official scores: All three judges cageside have it 30-27 in favor of Phil Davis, the winner by unanimous decision.

I totally don't understand this comment. Even if the english & grammar were what I think is being said, Davis completely had lil' Nog in his gameplan and beat him like he's done everyone else so far.

Are you being sarcastic or sincere?

Well, either Leonard was unaware there was just 1 second left in the round, or that twister was just too painful to hang on any longer.

I've never heard of or seen a twister before.

I thought they were a good match-up physically and skill-wise. Not that I don't like DaMarques, but I really like Amir...have since I saw him on TUF.

Dan Hardy looked small compared to Johnson who reminded me of GSP. I wonder how Johnson would do against GSP? I think they'd be a good match-up, maybe better than Anderson/GSP. They're both at the bigger end of WW in size, both really physically strong and Johnson has those long arms that might even out whatever edge GSP might have in other areas.

What do y'all think?
