Urijah Faber vs. Alex Caceres

Round 1:
Crowd let up a roar for "The California Kid." Herb Dean makes his first appearance tonight as the third man. They touch them up. Faber comes running in with a right hand, but can't score it. Caceres goes for a kick, and Faber grabs his leg and spins him down. Right back up. Now they swing around the post, and Faber pressuring there, trying to pry him off there. Faber relentless so far, and he shoots in for takedown. Caceres somersaults out, but it only stalls the inevitable, as Faber pursues. He had Caceres down on his back, now, and he goes to work from Leeroy's guard. So far Faber swarming; in the dominant position he's not methodical. Landing from in the guard, while Caceres crowds him from his back and returns elbows. Dogged pressure from Faber. He's driving Caceres along the fence, landing hard shots during the journey. Caceres simply unable to get up. Dean watches closely. Short punches from Faber to Caceres's ribcage and kidney area. As Faber gets up and tries to come in with something big, Caceres trying to stick him with upkicks...and one of them lands. They scramble at the end of the round, but that was Faber's.

Round 2:
Caceres gets rocked with a lunging punch, and he rolls along the cage a little unsteady. Before he knows what's happening Faber is back on him, dropping him to the ground. Back to dominant position from the relentless Faber, who goes to work in his guard. He postures up for space, and Caceres able to stand up. Wild sequence. Caceres lands an uppercut that woke Faber up a bit. That let up a road in the crowd. This action is spring-loaded, too furious to keep up with. Faber momentarily trips Caceres to the ground, but the spry Bruce Leeroy is able to bounce back to his feet. Now Faber rolls into him on the fence, and dumps him down. Can't keep him there. Caceres back up. Faber's nose bloody from that uppercut. High kick from Caceres is blocked. Nice kick from Caceres lands again on Faber's chin, and he does a 360 leg kick that also lands. Big time slam along the fence from Faber, and it's loud in the building. Caceres, though, right back up. What a fun fight. Caceres sizing Faber up with space, but Faber knows better than to fool with it. He clashes back into Caceres and back to the fence they go. The round ends in toil on the fence.

Round 3:
Final round. They touch them up, and Caceres bounces. Faber puts his head down and charges in, this time catching a couple of pole vault jabs. Caceres now pushes the action to the fence, and ties Faber up...not for long, as Faber rolls out. Faber catches a low kick from Caceres and immediately drives him hopping to the ground. He gets 's back! This could be it...he has a tight rear naked choke. And, through gritted teeth, Caceres taps. Wow!

UFC 175 official results: Urijah Faber def. Alex Caceres via submission (rear naked choke) at 1:09 of R3

Russell Doane vs. Marcus Brimage

Round 1:
Mario Yamasaki is the referee in charge of the action. Brimage is southpaw while Doane is orthodox. Brimage is first to connect with an inside leg kick. Doane scores with a snatch double and almost passes. Brimage goes turtle and fights off the d'arce, but remains in turtle. Doane eventually takes the back and is trying to score the rear naked choke. So far Brimage hangs on, but it's touch and go. Brimage gets his shoulders to the mat and escapes in a scramble with a minute left in the round. Brimage kicks the post leg of Doane as the Hawaiian whiffs on his own kick.

Round 2:
A right hook from Brimage cracks Doane and drops him. As Brimage rushes in, Doane attempts a double, but Brimage sprawls and eventually separates. Doane is knocked to the canvas again with a hard leg kick. Doane appears to be hurt there, but hangs on. Doane pushes forward again and gets Brimage's back briefly, but this time Brimage separates and they're striking. Brimage goes right back to the hurt leg. Doane clinches and is driving knees to Brimage's body. Now Doane level changes against the fence and tries to yank Brimage out, but he rolls over, covers Doane's head and escapes. Hard outside leg kick from Brimage.

Round 3:
Brimage catches a kick and drives Doane to the canvas. Doane tries to pull guard, but Brimage escapes. Brimage lands that inside leg kick again and drops Doane, but doesn't follow up. Doane stands. And other, this time the outside leg kick. Doane now switching stances to avoid being kicked. Brimage lands a right that stings, but doesn't rock Doane. Another hard inside leg lick to Doane's lead leg. This time on the outside. Doane shoots, but is stuffed.

Russell Doane def. Marcus Brimage via split decision (29-28 Doane, 29-28 Brimage, 30-27 Doane)

Stefan Struve blacks out in locker room, UFC 175 bout with Matt Mitrione called off.

UFC 175's pay-per-view bout between Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione has been cancelled, as Struve briefly lost consciousness backstage prior to the fight.

"Stefan Struve blacked out in the locker room," UFC President Dana White tweeted from the official SportsCenter account. "He has elevated heart rate and is out of the fight. I'd never risk his health.

"His heart rate was up, and he blacked out," White subsequently told MMAFighting.com. "They think it was a panic attack, but didn't want to take any chances."

White added that Struve was hyperventilating.

Struve was expected to challenge Mitrione in his first fight since the discovery of a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart in August 2013. After undergoing treatment to lower his blood pressure and minimize his blood leakage, the 26-year-old was initially cleared to return by a doctor in Holland, as well as the UFC's official doctor, however Saturday night's episode has now put that return on hold.

"Stefan had some conditions where he had some palpitations, his heart felt like it was moving quick," Dr. Jeffery Davidson explained on the broadcast. "The team evaluated him, they called in a medical group -- myself and a couple other doctors -- we took a look at him. Stefan had a near-fainting spell. He's doing great right now, that's the most important thing. He's safe and he's healthy right now. We are monitoring him for precaution. But on the consult of the group and the medical doctors on staff, I think we're going to tell him, obviously, no fighting today.

"Stefan's condition is very stable. We'll have to look at him in the future. He can fight another day if he'd like to. Medically he's going to do well. We're going to take precaution tonight."
I hope this condition doesn't end his fighting career, he's such a game fighter and always puts on a exciting fight, IMO. God speed, Stefan!!

Uriah Hall vs. Thiago Santos

Round 1:
Yves Lavigne is the referee in charge. Both fighters throwing lots of spinning attacks and push kicks, but neither landing anything of significance. Santos with an inside leg kick. And an outside. Great jab by Hall, but another outside leg kick for Santos. Inside leg kick for Santos, but he eats a jab. More inside legs from Santos. He briefly slips, but stands without taking damage. Both fighters exchange rights, Hall getting the better of it. Another inside leg kick from Santos. Great left hook on Santos by Hall, who is now pressuring forward. Santos cracks two more leg kicks.

Round 2:
Santos opens with two hard leg kicks. Decent jab from Hall and he barely avoids eating Santos' overhand right. Santos lands more inside and outside leg kicks. Outside leg kick from Santos whips Hall around, which allows Santos to crack him with a hook. Another hard outside leg kick from Santos after a brief slip. And another. Missed head kick attempt from Santos and Hall lands his own leg kick. Terrible takedown attempt from Santos is shrugged off and both fighters attempt flashy kicks that land nowhere. Rolling axe kick from Hall goes nowhere.

Round 3:
Santos with a body kick that partially lands. Outside leg kick, too. Decent one-two down the middle for Hall finds the mark. Turning back kick for Santos partially lands. Good overhand right lands for Hall. Cracking body shot for Santos and a decent head kick to follow. Spinning back partially lands for Hall, but then a switch kick actually does. Hall absorbs a groin kick and the bout is temporarily halted. The bout resumes and Santos attempts a takedown. He can't get it, but he does get behind Hall and presses him against the fence. Hall dives for a kimura, but can't get it and eats shots as a process.

Uriah Hall def. Thiago Santos via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)

Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis

Round 1:
Both fighters open orthodox. They both open with punches. Rousey eats a jab, but lands one of her own, plus a knee. Davis is hurt and before she can react, is snatched up with a harai goshi. From scarf hold, Davis takes almost a dozen unanswered punches, which puts the lights out. The referee has to save her.

I hope not either, maybe God is trying to tell him he has more important business to take care of right now.

Great fight! Who were you rooting for? Machida is one of my favorites and he definitely made it exciting in those last two rounds; just wish he had fought like that a lot sooner. Incredible the punches both were taking from each other and still standing. Chris Weidman is one tough dude. Machida too. Also, Machida looked so good/fit, not sure I've ever seen him so cut.

I know they're not in the same weight class, but do y'all think Weidman could beat Jon Jones? And do y'all think Machida and Weidman will fight again?

I like Lyoto too, Bonnie. But I wanted Chris to win. Weidman vs. Jones would be an intruiging matchup! I just want SOMEONE to beat JBJ, he's gotten so arrogant I'm not much of a fan anymore.

Anyway, good night of fights. I wonder if Ben was there? I miss him...
