Thiago Silva vs. Brandon Vera
Round 1

Silva drops for a single-leg takedown, and gets it, setting up in half guard. Thiago is trying to pass, Vera controls his upper body to prevent it. Vera switches to half butterfly guard, looking for a sweep. Silva moves to half guard, and as Vera looks to regain, Silva passes over to the other side to sit in side control. Silva starts delivering short elbows and punches. Silva continues to grind away with short shots. He pulls his arm back in toward his body, smashing Vera with an elbow. Vera kicks his legs up, and Silva catches one, and falls to his back, looking for a heel hook. Vera escapes and the horn sounds.

Brandon needs to avoid the takedown. He started round 2 so well...

Round 2
The second round begins with both men trading heavy hooks. Vera gets through clean and flush with a left hook-right hook combo. Silva lands a right of his own and they clinch up along the fence. As Vera pushes Silva into the fence, Silva raises his leg and explodes forward with a brilliant trip into the full guard. Vera throws elbows from his back while Silva lands short, idle punches. Vera kicks Silva away, but Silva splits his legs and passes through to half guard. Vera gets a butterfly hook, and digs under the thigh looking for a sweep. Silva punches with both hands. Silva lands a hard left that forces Vera to cover up, and follows with more lefts. Silva continues to chop away with short punches and elbows. With 30 seconds to go, Silva postures up and throws a strong salvo of punches. Vera is stuck on the bottom with no recourse. Silva hammers away until the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Silva

Round 3
Silva throws a body kick, but Vera catches it, and trips him to the mat. Vera returns with another body kick. "The Truth" looks for a head kick, and Silva runs him into the cage again, and gets double underhooks, much to the chagrin of the crowd. Silva ducks under and gets a rear waistlock. Vera tries to elbow him from behind, but Silva uses the momentum of the strike to pull Vera to the mat, looking to take his back. Silva gets one hook in, and punches away on Vera. Silva starts to posture up, throwing punches and hammerfists, and trying to sink his arm under Vera's chin. Silva mocks Vera, drumming on his back, and slapping him in the ear, which prompts Vera to throw an elbow at Silva behind him, which misses. Vera continues to control one of Silva's wrists, as Silva smashes away with left hands as the horn sounds. Silva leisurely skips to his feet, while Vera slowly gets to his feet with a completely destroyed, gnarled nose.

Official scores: 30-26 and 30-27 (twice) for Thiago Silva.

Brandon's nose!!

Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann
Round 1
The pair trade low kicks, and Stann cracks Leben with a right cross. Leben throws a wide left hand, and Stann cracks him with another right. Leben with a low kick. Stann pushes him into the fence, and shuts down an attempted Leben trip. The pair break out in a full hockey fight from the collar tie, and Leben crunches some uppercuts into Stann's face before Stann pushes him back into the fence. Stann looks for knees to the body but can't land anything hard and clean. They separate, and Stann lands a hard kick to the body. Stann lands a hard two-piece, and Leben comes forward right into a flurry of hard punches from Stann. Stann lands a massive right hook and Leben goes down in a heap, in slow motion, and Stann pounces with punches as Leben holds on. Leben makes it back to his feet, only to be dropped again by heavy Stann fire. Stann is all over "The Crippler" as Josh Rosenthal looks on with concern. Leben somehow gets back to his feet again, but he's basically out on his feet. Stann crushes him with a knee, and the follow up punches seal the deal. Rosenthal has given Leben every chance to recover, but he's down and out officially at 3:37 of the first round.
