Round 3:
An early exchange ends with a Herman takedown. He’s got Smith in a triangle. Herb Dean looks like he’s close to calling it. He escapes and he’s back on his feet. Pace has slowed, as there’s a lot of clinch work without either guy getting much of an advantage. Two minutes left. A Smith kick lands low and Dean calls timeout. Smith kicks low and Herman lands two lefts. Herman goes for a takedown but Smith gets out of the way. Smith lands a head kick solid, but Herman doesn’t blink. Big round of applause from the crowd in the final seconds. The pair embrace after the horn.

Congrats to Ed Herman, but why in the world didn't Trevor Smith go in for the finish in the 1st when he rocked Herman?...a costly missed opportunity for Smith.

I'm glad he didn't though! I was rooting for Ed!

Did you see the Mac Danzig fight, Bon? Sheesh, I was afraid he wasn't going to get up. That was painful to watch.

Danzig with a low kick, then eats a right to the jaw as he comes in. Guillard drops Danzig with a big left to the jaw, opens up with hammerfists and puts him out.

Melvin Guillard def. Mac Danzig via knockout at 2:47 of round two.




The ref should have stopped that sooner. Grrrrr.
I wish the ref had been a little quicker too, Cathy, those last hits from Melvin looked like they were really hard and right on his nose which was already beat up. Mac looked like he was in a lot of pain when they showed him on the ground, and he didn't look good when Buffer was announcing the winner.

I guess I was typing my comments on the fight when you posted this! I'm late getting my comments in because I recorded the fights and watched them later hoping to go thru all the commercials.

Yes, that was painful to watch; I thought he might be seriously hurt too. I know the hits come with the territory just like with boxing and football, but I hate to think of the possible damage to these guys' brains with all the hits their faces and heads take.

Robbie Lawler def. Bobby Voelker via knockout (head kick) at 0:24 of round two.

Woohoo!!! Great KO, Robbie!

Robbie looked absolutely fantastic, both physically and with his fighting. I'm with Rogan, the best I've ever seen him. He was so light on his feet, moving, the kicks, just everything...outstanding! I've never seen him look so polished. I can't say enough! Just fantastic, Robbie!!!

I didn't get to see Robbie's fight in February when he first came back at welterweight, it seems to suit him very well.

With Rory's reach advantage and stance, I thought Jake just needed to risk it and move forward into Rory, just go for it.
