Round 1:
Referee Kerry Hatley oversees our final prelim. Both men collide on simultaneous leg kicks and Dollaway gets the worst of it. Boetsch lets him up then stalks forward. Dollaway generates some distance with a leg kick. Boetsch continues to stalk and Dollaway just throws up his hands, baiting Boetsch to come inside. Boetsch shoots for a double but can't get it. Dollaway paws out his jab then circles right. Dollaway whiffs on a looping right. Dollaway continues to throw up his hands. Dollaway showing complete disdain for Boetsch right now. Dollaway ties up then unloads inside the clinch. Left hand cracks Boetsch. Dollaway is dominating this fight. Right hand connects for Dollaway. Boetsch unable to generate any significant offense.

Round 2:
Dollaway finds his mark with a series of jabs. Dollaway drops for a single, turns the corner and muscles Boetsch to the mat, moving right into half guard. Boetsch defends a choke and powers to his feet. Dollaway drops for another double but can't get it. Boetsch hunts for a standing guillotine against the fence. After a scramble, Boetsch winds up with Dollaway's back. Dollaway squirms out but Boetsch is relentless. Dollaway connects on a short elbow and circles out. Boetsch cracks Dollaway with a right hand, but Dollaway smiles and shakes his head. Dollaway trips Boetsch to the mat. Boetsch has Dollaway's right arm and is working towards a kimura. Dollaway unloads a few short elbows to Boetsch's back.

Round 3:
Dollaway throws up his hands and calls for Boetsch to engage. Big eyepoke on a straight left. Boetsch screams in pain. Oh dang, that one is bad. We're back, but that one had to effect Boetsch. Boetsch stalks forward and defends a double. Boetsch muscles Dollaway against the cage. Another eyepoke draws huge boos from the crowd. Boetsch isn't happy. Hatley takes away a point after watching the replay. We're back, and Dollaway changes levels for a takedown. Dollaway advances into full mount. Boetsch powers to his feet and the crowd explodes. They're clearly on Boetsch's side after those eyepokes. Dollaway cracks Boetsch with a left. Dollaway connects inside. Boetsch fires back with a hard right hand. Dollaway grimaces and counters. Boetsch closes the distance against the fence, then reverses a takedown and grasps for a d'arce. He almost had it. Dollaway squirms out but Boetsch locks up another attempt. Too late though, as there's the horn.

Thanks, Bon! Yes, they've been super so far. The only down side is George S. losing :-(

I wonder if he will get cut?

John Dodson vs. Darrell Montague

Round 1:
Jacob Montalvo the referee. And we're underway. Dodson tries to blast Montague early with a left, and catches an inside leg kick that grazes his groin. He winces, but they play on. Montague throwing leg kicks early. Big sweeping leg kicks. Dodson lunges forward with a left showing, but then follows with a right that connects. Both guys in southpaw stance, and both flirting with the unload. Montague very swift with his uppercuts, and lands one in brief exchange. Big left hand by Dodson lands! He goes in for attack, and lands another. Montague immediately coils up into survival mode, but he temporarily stays alive. They are back to center. Dodson now looking to resize up something as big as that left. Crazy chin by Montague to absorb that shot. Amazing. Looks like the cobwebs are cleared enough for Montague to move forward. Dodson comes over the top and lands the left again. And BOOM, he lands one more that drops Montague straight forward onto his belly. One follow up finish later, and it's over. Dodson KOs Montague! Huge speed and power from Dodson there. He put that left on Montague a good many times, at least twice big enough for knockouts.

UFC 166 results: John Dodson def. Darrell Montague via KO at 4:13 of R1.

The little guys are always so exciting to watch! It took a second before Montague fell face forward after that last hit. Good fight by both of them. Fast but good!

Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Shawn Jordan

Round 1:
Jay Stafin is the third man in the cage. Gonzaga errant on a leg kick, as Jordan takes the center of the cage. Jordan smiling. Both trade jabs, but can't follow up. Each leery of the other's power to end the fight early, it seems. Bam! Jordan swooped in with an uppercut and then came over the top with a left, and got caught with a short counter right hook. That punch dropped Jordan, and Gonzaga pounced on him and delivered the finishers. Crazy coordination and wherewithal by Gonzaga to land that punch amidst a Jordan combination.

UFC 166 results: Gabriel Gonzaga def. Shawn Jordan via TKO (strikes) at 1:33 of R1.

I think he was actually out on his feet before he fell down. Dodson is so scrappy, I just love the guy! All those back flips! Not to mention he was just awesome on American Ninja Warrior, he was very competitive with the Parkour guys.

Holy Moly, this fight looks like Rocky and Apollo and it's just the 1st round! Is Ben in Houston for this fight? We need a punch/strike count, I bet it's off the charts!

We just saw a FIGHT in Texas tonight!!! Fantastic!!!

Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez

Round 1:
The referee is Kerry Hatley. Diego races across the cage to meet Melendez, and Melendez circles around. Sanchez catches a kick attempt and dumps Melendez down, then rides his back around the cage. Finally Melendez shucks him, and delivers a couple of parting punches. Good action early. Sanchez, the southpaw, trying to size one up, and Melendez throwing small volume from afar. Sanchez attempts a double leg by Melendez keeps upright on fence, and they break. Back to center. Melendez changing levels, going to the body. Sanchez absorbs a pretty good one, and returns a straight leg kick which nicks Melendez kneecap. Right hand by Melendez gets through, and he catches a Sanchez kick and wheels him around the cage. They separate. Sanchez now bleeding over his eye. Melendez tossing the jab out there. He's clearly getting the better of all these exchanges. Uppercut by Melendez to the body, and Sanchez lands a nice right overhand. Big exchange and it looked like that time Melendez took the brunt of the it, as he peeled away in a fog. To close out the round, they stand toe-to-toe and trade punches. Crazy! Much like Guida/Sanchez. Sanchez was dropped momentarily with a shot. Crazy round.

Round 2:
Right back at it. Melendez now takes the middle of the cage, and Diego orbits. Melendez still setting up the big body shots with the jab, and he continues to tenderize Sanchez's ribs. Melendez with his hips on a swivel. Sanchez rushes forward with an overhand right, but can't land. They end up in a brush fire in the middle, each man clapping the other with a short shot. Great action again.Now Harley stops the action so that the doctor can look at Sanchez's cut eye. Sanchez says he's good, and we're back at it. Good body kick by Melendez, right as Sanchez went into his offensive motion. Melendez then gets Sanchez momentarily leaning on fence, and tees off. Lands a flurry of shots! Bot they back peddle into the middle, and reset. Sanchez slips and falls, but bounces back up before Melendez can get him. Another missed right hand by Sanchez, and Melendez snares him with a huge right counter that staggers Sanchez briefly. Blood running like a web down the side of Sanchez's face. Melendez still crisp with his combos. He still has good movement. Sanchez still taking the worst of the exchanges. He tries for a takedown, but that is stuff, and Melendez plants a knee into his face as they part. That's the bell. Sanchez all heart, but Melendez has an answer for everything he's seeing.

Round 3:
Final round. Melendez waves the left hand out there, and Sanchez comes in with an uppercut with great velocity. And here we go again, they stand toe-to-toe and exchange! Literally right in each other's wheelhouses. They both ate a ton there, and dished as much. Crowd loving it. Sanchez's face is a macabre scene. Unbelievable exchange there right in the middle, both men throwing caution to the wind. Once again the referee intervenes to have Sanchez's eye looked at. We're back at it. Sanchez tries a leg kick, and lands it, and eats a long jab for the trouble. And here we go again, they stand and trade right in the middle. Sanchez now smites his chest and says come on. Now Sanchez rocks him with a big punch and Melendez goes reeling backwards. Sanchez jumps on him! Trying to get a guillotine, but Melendez pops out. Wow! This fight is for the ages. A minute to go. Sanchez tries a spilling kick and inadvertently gives Melendez his back. But Sanchez reverses, and they slip off each other. Just all brawn and Adam's apple at the end here. And they throw down again at the end, hacking away at each other until the final bell!

UFC 166 results: Gilbert Melendez def. Diego Sanchez via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28)

I picked Melendez in my predictions because I didn't think Diego could win it (even though I've always been a fan) but I was rooting like crazy for him during the 3rd round. Great fight, what heart!!!
