Mike Pyle vs. Rory MacDonald

Round 1
Pyle swipes with left hooks and tries to get inside for a takedown, but wades back out. A right straight from MacDonald puts Pyle on his rear, but the punch only seemed to graze as Pyle slipped. Pyle dives into a takedown attempt and gets his head stuck in a guillotine, quickly extracts it and holds onto MacDonald as he stands back up. MacDonald gets driven back down, stands again, and uncorks a right-left combo that stuns Pyle. MacDonald grabs another guillotine, lets it go and chases Pyle down to the floor into guard. MacDonald back out and kicks at the legs of Pyle, which are already bearing marks from the strikes. Back down to the guard of Pyle goes MacDonald. He catches Pyle with a left hand. Pyle begins turning over and a right hand connects. Pyle is in deep trouble as he turtles on his knees, MacDonald’s right hand repeatedly crashing into Pyle’s temple. Kevin Mulhall waves it off at 3:54; Pyle still appears wobbly as he tries to stand while the official decision is read.

Jorge Rivera vs. Constantinos Philippou

Round 1
The first offense of the bout comes from Rivera, who slaps Philippou with inside thigh kicks until the New Yorker clinches up. He brings “El Conquistador” to the floor and works from Rivera’s open guard as Rivera scoots his back to the cage. Philippou moves to half-guard, Rivera still controlling his right arm. Rivera works back to his feet, absorbing punches on his way up, but can’t get off the cage once he’s vertical. Philippou’s not doing much with the position, so ref Mario Yamasaki splits them up with about two minutes left. Ten seconds later, they’re back in the same position and the crowd lets them hear it. Rivera reverses and puts Philippou’s back on the cage, scoring with a knee to the gut. Philippou breaks off and jogs to the other side of the cage, but Rivera stays patient, closes the gap and zaps him with a nice right hand. Rivera clinches again, but Philippou is able to quickly disengage, landing an uppercut on his way out. Philippou wades in with punches and clinches again before the horn. The Philly fans do not like this one so far.

Round 2
Philippou drops Rivera with a right hand early and it’s looking bad for the Bostonian. Philippou pounds and pounds, referee Yamasaki standing above and warning Rivera that he’ll stop the fight if he doesn’t see something. Just when Yamasaki seems on the verge of doing just that, Rivera comes alive and reverses Philippou into the base of the cage. Now it’s Rivera unloading with punches, but Philippou seems unfazed. Both men are looking spent less than halfway into the second round as they get back to their feet. Clinchwork on the cage with both guys looking to dirty-box, Philippou scoring with intermittent uppercuts. Yamasaki splits them up with two minutes left, to the approval of the crowd. And then they clinch again. Rivera trips Philippou down, but goes straight into an omoplata attempt. Rivera’s right arm is in a bad spot, but Philippou is having trouble finishing. He can’t, despite holding Rivera in the position for a good 30 seconds, and Rivera escapes before the end of the round.

Round 3
Rivera lands the better strikes in the opening minute of the final round, stinging Philippou with punches and short strikes in the clinch. Before long, Philippou brings him down. Rivera throws up a triangle choke, but can’t close it and Philippou shucks him off. Tired punches from Philippou on the floor as Rivera scrambles up. They clinch on the fence, Philippou using foot stomps until Yamasaki splits them up. Straight back to the clinch they go, Philippou trying for a single-leg which Rivera stymies. Guillotine attempt from Rivera doesn’t get far, but does bring Philippou down to a knee. The veteran scores with right hands and a knee to the body, but he’s running out of time. Philippou is giving nothing in return from his knees. He stands up with 30 seconds left and Yamasaki issues one last restart order. Philippou lands a left hook, Rivera rattles off a one-two, and the middleweights tumble to the ground at the horn.

Official result: It’s a split verdict, with one judge submitting a 29-28 scorecard for Jorge Rivera and the remaining two officials rendering the same score for the first-time UFC winner, Constantinos Philippou.

Alright, I'm calling the Hallman/Ebersole fight as a null fight on the UFC 133 Predictions Thread. If we had known beforehand that Hallman was going to wear a speedo to the ring, we all would have picked him.

Ebersole laid the smack down there at the end. That should teach Hallman to commit such a terrible crime by dressing like he was a male stripper in a professional fight.
