Default UFC 168 *SPOILERS*

Here we go!

Robbie Peralta vs. Estevan Payan

Round 1:
Yves Lavigne is the referee for this featherweight fight. Peralta throws a low kick, lands an overhand right, closes the distance, and scores a takedown. He lands a couple lefts from half guard, but otherwise, Payan has him pretty well tied up. Payan scrambles back to his fight, but Peralta bodylocks him along the fence. They trade knees, switch positions. It turns into a scramble and Peralta is in Payan's half-guard again. Payan throws him off and rolls into side control. He can't do much with his position. Peralta postures up a bit and lands a right hand. A right elbow to the midsection and a left elbow to the head. Peralta struggles to espcae and eats a right hand. Peralta back to his feet right before the horn. Close round, as both had significant portions of the round with ground control time, but neither did much with it.

Round 2:
Peralta charges in with an overhand right, but Payan lands a counter left. Peralta again charges in and throws a two-punch combo. The third time he tries it, he eats a sharp counter hook. Peralta lands a left, then checks a Payan head kick. Peralta continues to initiate and then get out of range. He throws a few leg kicks. They clinch and Payan scores the takedown. He;s again working from side control. Payan lands a couple rights. Payan stands, and Peralta rolls backwards and to his feet. Peralta gets underhooks and pushes Payan back to the fence. Payan reverses positions with 30 seconds left. Rounds ends in this position.

Round 3:
A quick slap of the hands as round three starts. And just like that, it's over. Peralta rushes in swinging, lands a big right, a big left to the jaw which sends Payan stumbling backwards, another big left to the jaw which drops Payan, and a few punches later, Lavigne stops it.

Robbie Peralta def. Estevan Payan via KO at 0:12 of round three.

William Macario vs. Bobby Voelker

Round 1:
Mario Yamasaki is the referee for this welterweight fight. Macario throw a low kick. Macario throws a few wild punches, one of which lands and sends Voelker backwards. Crowd is very much pro-Macario, who was a TUF 2: Brazil finalist. An exchange ends with Macario landing a knee in the Thai clinch and Voelker covering up. Macario lands a straight right. Midway through the round. Macario again rocks Voelker back and pummels him before Voelker can escape. Voelker's nose is cut open. Voelker lands a straight right. Macario with a takedown. Lands a knee to the body as Voelker gets back to his feet. Final minute. Macario with a big left. Voelker starts throwing in the closing seconds, but doesn't land anything of note.

Round 2:
Voelker twice pops Macario with solid rights. Macario's pace has slowed considerably since the last round. Voelker landing straight lefts. Macario shoots a single and gets the takedown. Voelker scoots back to the fence and gets back to his feet. Voelker moves forward, but eats a counter right which stops him in his tracks. Voelker with a rope-a-dope right. Macario opens up with a series of lefts and rights. Voelker's covering up. He eats a right which briefly knocks him to the mat. Huge Macario chants in the crowd. Voelker's face is cut open badly. He doesn't go down, though. Yamasaki calls time and the doctor's coming in. Referee clears him to fight. One minute left. Voelker lands a solid two-punch combo Voelker's nose is in hideous condition. Voelker's still pushing forward.

Round 3:
Voelker's nose has already busted back open before the round even starts. Early action alternates between Voelker pushing forward and clinch work. Macario's blond hair is turning red from Voelker's blood. Macario sprawls a takedown attempt. An accidental eye poke, as if Voelker doesn't already have enough problems right now. Midway through. Voelker trying to wipe the blood out of his face. Have I mentioned Voelker is shedding a lot of blood? He's spending more time wiping it out of his eyes than fighting. Macario's fighting like a guy who knows he's way up on the cards. Macario with a late takedown. Back up, Voelker with a final flurry.

William Macario def. Bobby Voelker via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).




Well, Bobby is one tough dude to last another round after the punishment he took in the 2nd. I was really hoping he could get a big win, dang. I think he was just too hurt and couldn't see well enough to time his punches after the middle of the 2nd round.
