But we can all agree, can't we, that some blood spatter is critical to the enjoyment factor? Maybe not bucketsful but a few gaping wounds with the occasional spurting artery?

Story tried his best to give you some arterial spray, but it was fairly tame.

Kevin Gastelum vs. Rick Story

Round 1:
Jacob Montalvo is the referee for tonight's prelim headliner. Story wades inside but can't connect. Story slips a punch and connects on a hard counter. Gastelum pumps his jab hard and blood is already trickling from below Story's left eye. Story pops him with his jab. Story catches Gastelum with a nasty combination. Gastelum answers with a front kick that wobbles Story. Gastelum storms forward and unleashes a salvo. Story just trying to survive. Gastelum finally settles in side control. Story tries to creep out the back door, and after nearly giving up his back, he does so successfully. Story looking much worse for wear than Gastelum after that exchange. Gastelum cracks Story again, and again. Gastelum kicks low.

Round 2:
Story wades forward and lands a flurry. Gastelum continues to push forward. Story backs him up with another hard shot. One-two misses from Gastelum, who then kicks low. Wild left misses from Story. Another low kick from Gastelum. Story eats a hard one-two and tries to fire back. Story works the body. Gastelum pumps his jab at the insistence of a loud Luke Barnatt, who's in the crowd. Gastelum just slips a looping hook and unloads. Big right hand has Story on the defensive. Gastelum starting to feel it now. Story pumps his jab to settle things down. Gastelum misses a hook but connects his follow-up low kick. Story blasts Gastelum and now they're swinging! Huge shot drops Gastelum! Flash knockdown but he's back to his senses. Story continuing to pour it on. Wow, what a wild finish! There's the horn.

Round 3:
Huge swell of applause meets these two as they touch gloves for the final round. Gastelum looks like he's slowed a bit while Story's moving like he's fresh as a daisy. Hard right hand cracks Story. And another, and another. Story changes levels and shoots inside for a double. He transitions to a single, but can't get it. Gastelum overpowers Story against the fence. Gastelum pumps his jab and gets Story on his heels. Blast double from Gastelum and now he has Story's back. Story sweeps into top position. That was tremendous. Gastelum gives up his back. Story hunting hard for a rear-naked choke. Gastelum pries away Story's arm but Story is relentless. Gastelum sweeps into top position! We're back to our feet with 30 seconds to go. Gastelum throwing everything he has into these shots. Story shakes off a double leg attempt. Monstrous exchange here! This is a firefight! What a fight!

Kelvin Gastleum def. Rick Story via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27)

Is that a brand on Ovince? Yikes!


Ovince St. Preux vs. Nikita Krylov

Round 1:
Dan Miragliotta is the third man in the cage. Here we go...UFC 171 PPV underway. They touch them up. St. Preux circling early, and then takes Krylov down after a kick. He's immediately into side control. St. Preux has a headlock, and is scooting to the fence. That's where they end up. And as Krylov tries to squirm free, the referee realizes that he's out! Wow. He was choked unconscious from the old Von Flue choke as Krylov was fishing for the guillotine. St. Preux pinned Krylov's hand with his knee, and he squeezed the neck from shoulder until Krylov went to sleep. Referee came in and peeled St. Preux off.

UFC 171 official results: Ovince St. Preux def. Nikita Krylov via submission (Von Flue choke) at 1:29 of R1.

Jake looks too thin


Jake Shields vs. Hector Lombard

Round 1:
Don Turnage is the ref. Lombard, stalking forward, with a big right hand, temporarily drops Shields. He allows Shields to get back up, and once again Lombard tees off with a shot, while Shields clinches up. They stay there for a moment, and then split. Lombard back to center. Shields a little tentative, tries a leg kick (half-heartedly), and eats another punch. Shields shoots in trying to scoop the Cuban up, but he is turned into the fence and they clinch. Lombard with a couple of little punches inside, and cuts Shields as they break. Shields bleeding above the left eye. Shields resets, and shoots in for a double-leg, but it is telegraphed, and Lombard coolly thwarts it. They are back to the feet and sizing each other up. Blood streaming down Shields face as he tries another head kick. He goes or a takedown again, and Lombard again teeing off, and connecting with two, three big shots. Shields turtles up momentarily on the group, and the hammerfists follow. Shields ever to recover enough to get guard. Lombard trying to keep the ambush on, but he's getting tied up. Ref warns to stay busy, a little eagerly. Shields now returning fire into Lombard's temple from his back. Swift little elbow from Shields. Lombard with his head down and still toiling in Shields' guard.

Round 2:
Lombard quickly to center, while Shields circles. Once again, Lombard hunts through the small stuff and tries to lower the boom on Shields. Misses, but then gets a trip on Shields and drops him down, immediately into side control. Lombard rolling over, and now Shields able to improve to half guard. Lombard tries to posture up, but can't get space, and Shields takes advantage to get into full guard. He has Lombard tied up. Referee warns them to stay busy; Lombard not getting much room to deal with. Can't separate enough to work. Referee stands them back up. Lombard back to the center, and standing flat-footed (as usual), he is waiting for Shields to move towards him. Shields does, albeit cautiously, with his paw up waving in distraction. Shields shoots in finally, but Lombard straightens out quick and stays upright. Shields waiting for Lombard to get to the ground, tries an upkick, and then stands back up. Lombard weaving his arms looking for an opening on the feet. Shields perplexed. He is trying to strafe the shorter Lombard from range, but can't get anything done. Jabs not connecting. And the judo shows up again, as Lombard trips Shields to the ground. He's in side control, but Shields pretty quickly able to get half guard, then full guard. Lombard swims through but can't land anything in that position as the round ends.

Round 3:
Final round, and really all Lombard so far. He moves quickly to center, and Shields looks like he might have some urgency. He tries a high kick, and Lombard catches it and spins him out. Lombard, in southpaw stance, with that left coiled and ready to pop. Shields moving forward, and right as he comes in Lombard lands a low shot. They give Sheilds a moment to recover, which he graciously declines, and we're right back at it. Shields shoots in, and can't get the takedown. Lombard, though, tries his own and gets it. Immediately into Shields' guard. Familiar position/sequence. Lombard has been effective all night with takedown attempts, but having trouble capitalizing once on the ground. Blood squirting down over Shields' eyebrows. Once again, the referee sensing a stalemate brings the fighters back to their feet. Shields, bloodied, waving his left hand out there trying to set up some offense. Shields pulls guard after a failed takedown effort, same as all night. Again, Lombard back into guard. They sit up, and Shields with a short elbow that doesn't do anything. Lombard pressing into Shields' to little effect. No punches from Lombard, just position. Referee, once again, stands them up. Lombard coasting a little bit down the stretch here, not engaging. Just letting time roll of, well ahead on scorecards. And Shields suddenly goes for a knee, and into a guillotine...he has the arm end! But time expires. Whoa. Got interesting there at the very end.

UFC 171 official results: Hector Lombard def. Jake Shields unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

I didn't even realize he was choking the guy out until it was over!

I agree with Joe, Lombard wasn't doing much in that last round. I'm not sure why Gilbert told Jake to shoot on Hector going into the 2nd round, I feel like it was pretty clear not long after the 1st round started that that was not going to be successful with Hector and only put Jake in a bad position.

Jake needed it to be on the ground if he was going to have a chance to win. Also, Hector never did ANYTHING while on top. Having Lombard in his guard was the safest & most opportune place for Jake to be.
