Hollett times a double and gets it, landing in half guard. Hollett can't get anything going, so Roberts stands it up. Hollett pressures Maldonado against the cage then drops down for a double. Maldonado defends. Roberts splits the fighters. Hollett immediately seizes a takedown, then passes into half guard. What a weird, kind of awful round.

I know, I know, that spinning kick was horrifying to watch (you get the full impact of it from that second angle in the gif) but I still think he stayed writhing on the mat too long. He must be an Obama supporter.

Yeah, we don't travel for the FX & Fuel cards (soon to be the FS1 & FS2 cards). I haven't quite put my time in yet to get to go to any "real" international events (I went to Montreal, but that's just America's attic! )

Gleison Tibau vs. John Cholish

Round 1:
Leon Roberts is our referee for this lightweight bout. Cholish pumps his jab, Tibau returns the favor. Looping left misses for Tibau. Tibau follows with a hard shot to the body. Big exchange from both fighters. Tibau catches a kick and muscles Cholish to the mat. Cholish quickly works to his feet. Cholish eats a left hook, then blocks a high kick. Tibau catches another kick, but Cholish escapes unscathed. Tibau catches yet another kick and fires off a strong jab. Tibau briefly wrestles Cholish down, but can't do anything with it. We're back standing. Tibau stalks forward. Cholish defends a double leg against the fence. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Tibau.

Round 2:
Tibau storms forward with a flying knee. Cholish connects with a short shot inside the pocket. Tibau fires back. Tibau muscles Cholish against the fence. Cholish backs out into the center of the cage. Slow pace here. Just as I say that, a huge straight left staggers Cholish. Cholish shoots for a desperation takedown. Tibau brushes it off, then seizes a guillotine during the ensuing scramble. It's in tight. That's it, folks.

Gleison Tibau def. John Cholish via submission (guillotine choke) at 2:34 of round 2.


Very nice submission!

Trinaldo seizes a body lock then drags Rio to the mat. Trinaldo snakes in an arm triangle from half guard. Trinaldo cranks down. Oh wow, he actually got it.

Lentz shoots for a single but fails to secure it. Lentz connects with a flurry. Lentz grabs a leg and works for a single against the cage. Dias defends and reverses. Lentz tries again for the takedown, but still nothing gives. Lentz reverses a trip attempt and takes Dias' back. Dias hits a switch and latches onto Lentz. Lentz squirms out and muscles Dias into the cage, much to the displeasure of the Brazilian crowd.

Round 2:
Lentz takes Dias' back early in a scramble. Lentz working short punches while trying to secure his second hook. Shot after shot is blasting through Dias' defense. Lentz transitions to top position, winding up in half guard. Dias works to his feet but Lentz seizes a front headlock. Lentz thoroughly stifling Dias' attack right now. Lentz moves to Dias' back then trips him, landing again in half guard. Lentz stands, eats a few upkicks, then jumps back into Dias' half guard. Lentz advances into mount. Lentz postures up and unleashes a salvo, but nothing lands clean.

Round 3:
Dias comes out firing. Lentz ducks under a shot, then eats a huge right hand. And another. Dias gets the best of a wild exchange. Lentz briefly ties up. Dias still firing. Dias muscles Lentz against the fence, then slams Lentz to the mat. Lentz seizes a guillotine from the bottom. Dias slowly works out of it. Dias sinks in an arm triangle. Oh man, this one is deep. Lentz looks like he might tap. Nope, he somehow survives, but Dias advances to half guard. Lentz reclaims his guard, hunts for a kimura, then nearly blasts Dias with an illegal upkick. We're back standing and Dias is firing. Lentz locks up, hunting for a single against the fence. Dias eyes a switch as the horn sounds.

Nik Lentz def. Hacran Dias via unanimous decision (28-27, 29-28, 29-28)

What was that BS attempt to draw a foul in the first round? That was the weakest move I've ever seen.
