Manny Gamburyan vs. Thiago Tavares
R1 – Neither fighter is quick to engage. About 45 seconds in, Tavares scores with a double-leg takedown and starts working some solid ground and pound from Gamburyan's guard. Moving to half guard, Tavares has his arm snagged by Gamburyan, who attempts a Kimura. The move is close to a finish, but Tavares deftly spins out and back into the full guard of Gamburyan, again unleashing an aggressive ground and pound barrage. Gamburyan attempts to escape, but Tavares has a gut wrench hold. Standing, Gamburyan throws Tavares, who maintains the gut wrench the entire time and thy return to their feet. Tavares picks Gamburyan up and slams him to the mat, back into his guard and attacking with punches and hammerfists. They work back to their feet as the round ends.

MMAWeekly.com scores the round 10-9 for Tavares.

R2 – More GSP and B.J. Penn chants erupt in one corner of the arena, as Gamburyan moves in on Tavares with a combination of punches and kicks that doesn't do much damage, few landing. Tavares attempts a takedown, but Gamburyan reverses it and lands on the mat in Tavares' full guard, attacking with ground and pound. A slow down in the action and referee Josh Rosenthal stands the fighters up. They immediately start trading punches, Tavares getting the better of the exchange, landing a wild right hook before they lock-up along the fence, the round ending.

MMAWeekly.com scores the round 10-9 for Gamburyan.

R3 – Tavares opens with some strong right hands, but can't score the takedown he's looking for. They exchange, but Tavares' size is weighing in his favor, giving him the harder punch of the two, but then Gamburyan fires right back with a straight right that snaps Tavares' head back, then follows with a strong leg kick. Gamburyan lands a couple more good shots, but Tavares lands a cracking leg kick of his own and soon follows with a right cross. Gamburyan fails on his takedown attempt and eats a knee from Tavares on his way back to the feet. Gamburyan shoots again, but Tavares fends him off and they start exchanging punches again. The fight ends in a dance over the last 20 seconds with no strikes thrown.

-Jon Fitch (#2 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Akihiro Gono
(Gono and his two sidekicks make their way to the ring wearing sequined dresses and wigs... yes, in drag, giving fans a little dance routine as they stopped just short of the Octagon.)

R1 – Fitch opens with a hard-fought takedown attempt, but Gono defends and they end up clinched on the fence, exchanging knees before separating. Fitch drives in with punches, clinches and then starts an attack of knees to the body. They separate, but Fitch immediately continues to stalk Gono and finally scores a takedown, getting to the Japanese fighter's back. He works for the choke, but starts throwing punches to the side of Gono's head in an attempt to open him up. Gono tries to stand, but Fitch maintains back control as the round ends.

MMAWeekly.com scores the round 10-9 for Fitch.



Come on Fitch!

how sherdog described it

Gono walks down in full drag: wig, sparkly silver dress and glamour shades. He’s with two other dancing "women" and performs a choreographed dance routine at the base of the Octagon. Gomo now puts on traditional red shorts. Fitch enters the cage dressed like ... Jon Fitch

R2 – Fitch lands a hard kick to the leg of Gono that leaves him limping a bit before they clinch along the fence. Fitch eventually secures a leg-trip takedown, landing in Gono's closed guard. Fitch starts dropping forearms and punches to Gono's head and body. Fitch attacks the body with a series of punches, then goes heavy with forearms on Gono's skull, putting the fight very near a stoppage. Gono scrambles, but Fitch takes his back and locks on the body triangle, punching his head. Gono tries to get out, but gets caught in an armbar just before the bell sounds.

R3 – Fitch catches Gono with a punch to the midsection and then follows with a solid kick and takedown. He immediately starts working his ground and pound from half guard, stuffing punches and forearms in Gono's face. Gono does a good job upkicking Fitch back and returning to his feet. Gono attempts a jumping knee, but Fitch catches him and ties him up on the fence. Back away from the cage, Gono goes for a rolling kneebar, but Fitch defends well, maintaining back control. Gono turns and Fitch works some brutal strikes from knee on belly. Gono reverses into Fitch's half butterfly guard before falling into full guard. Gono gets out and stands up, attempting a kick as Fitch stands up, but can't score. Fitch lands a left-right punch combination followed by several knees, then scrambles Gono to the mat as the round ends.

MMAWeekly.com scores the round 10-9 for Fitch; the fight 30-27 for Fitch.
