RYAN BADER VS. ERIC SCHAFER

Round 1 - Bader quickly takes the center of the octagon, and Schafer circles around. Bader throws several hard punches and lands a good straight right. Schafer misses a looping left jab and ducks a wild looping right from Bader. Schafer lands a short left hook, and then an overhand right. Bader swings for the fences again and misses wildly, again. Bader lands a right over the top, partially blocked, and then a left to the body. The fighters trade shots, and then Bader lands a clean jab. Bader lands that big looping right and drops Schafer to the ground. Bader is very aggressive and explosive, pounding on Schafer and exploding out any time Schafer tries to control his posture. Schafer does a great job staying in the fight. Schafer fights back to his feet but gets slammed back down. Bader takes Schafer's back for a minute as Schafer tries to struggle back to his feet. Schafer finally gets full guard and starts to look for submissions, first trying for an armbar and then an omaplata, neither of which catch. The round ends with Bader on his feet, standing above Schafer. MMAjunkie.com scores the round 10-9 for Bader.

Round 2 - Bader lands a leg kick, and then another. Schafer returns a right straight. Schafer paws out trying to find the range and we stop momentarily for an inadvertant eye poke. Bader appears to have slowed down quite a bit, isn't moving forward and isn't throwing as crisply. Schafer works forward behind the jab, dodging another looping right from Bader. Bader misses another looping home run right hand. Bader lands a good jab, and then a looping left moments later. Bader has slowed considerably, letting Schafer find success with counterpunches. Schafer lands a right hand, and follows it up with a solid left hook that lands. Schafer misses a jab and eats a counter right hook. Schafer scores with a 1-2 combo, and then a counter right straight when Bader tries to return. Bader looks to try a round-stealing takedown, but Schafer stuffs and lands a solid right hand. Bader tries another takedown as the round ends, but Schafer stuffs it too, and finishes looking for a guillotine choke. MMAjunkie.com scores the close round 10-9 for Schafer.

Round 3 - The fighters circle and trade jabs as the round opens. Bader throws the home run right hand yet again, and this time it lands directly behind Schafer's ear. Schafer stumbles, and Bader jumps on top. Schafer gets to full guard, and eats an unintentional head but as Bader tries to transition. Bader stands out of guard, and the referee calls time for a quick check of the cut opened by the headbutt. We get back underway almost immediately, and the fighters circle each other in the center of the ring, exchanging shots. Schafer continues to land crisper punches but Bader lands occasionally with stronger shots. Bader sinks for a takedown with just over a minute left; Schafer looks for a guillotine briefly but Bader ends up on top in side control. Bader is doing a good job riding out the end of the fight, not really looking for any offense but doing just enough to avoid getting stood up. Schafer regains guard and tries to transition as the fight ends. MMAjunkie.com awards the round and the fight to Bader. Ryan Bader defeats Eric Schafer by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-26, 30-27). The judge who had it 29-26 must have seen two 10-8 rounds for Bader and a 9-10 round for Schafer -- a strange score for sure.

Yes, I lost a lot of respect for Anthony Johnson. In my opinion, his victory is tainted because of missing the weight limit by such a large margin.

Round 1 - Fisher opens with a leg kick and eats a jab in return. Fisher takes the center of the cage, with Stevenson light on his feet, bouncing and circling around the outside. The fighters exchange shots, then Fisher lands a leg kick and a clean counter right. Fisher is bleeding from a small cut above his left eye. Stevenson shoots for a takedown but Fisher does a good job sprawling and defending. Stevenson continues to work the takedown, pushing Fisher up to the cage and continuing to work while Fisher continues to defend. Stevenson eventually gives up the takedown and the fighters stall in a body lock against the cage before they're separated by referee Herb Dean. Fisher is clearly having trouble seeing out of his bloody left eye as the fight restarts. Stevenson targets the eye, landing an elbow. Fisher lands an inside leg kick. Stevenson sinks for a takedown that is again defended, but in the scramble "Joe Daddy" is able to get behind Fisher and drag him to the ground. The round ends with Fisher turtled eating multiple shots to the side of the head. MMAjunkie.com scores the first round 10-9 for Stevenson in no small part thanks to the closing action.
