Default UFC Live: Hardy vs. Lytle ***SPOILERS***

Man, Reinhardt just looked old in this fight. Figueroa was absolutely dominant in this fight. He looked really impressive in the stand-up.

Though I will note, if you wanna complain about illegal shots to the back of the head, what about those right hands at the end? In the Hendo & Belfort fights, the opponent was moving & the shots to the back of the head were incidental (i.e. not aimed there). In this case, however, Jason was just laying there covering up & not moving while Edwin threw a few big hooks to the base of the neck/spine.

I don't think it changed the outcome of the fight at all (same thing with the Hendo & Belfort fights), but the strikes were clearly illegal.

Here's MMAFighting.com's play-by-play:

Quote:
Round 1: No glove touch, but we start anyway. Figueroa takes the center and Reinhardt circles to the right on the outside, then back left. Reinhardt is on his horse, not engaging, and grinning at Figueroa, now talking to him and clapping at him. The crowd is booing wildly. Figueroa finally catches him to throw a partially blocked kick. This has Kalib Starnes written all over it. Figueroa lands a right and drops Reinhardt, then locks in a standing guillotine. Reinhardt is trying to power out of it, and he eventually gets a little slam out of it and winds up on top. He transitions to Figueroa's back and starts to work for a rear naked choke with a body triangle locked on. Figueroa gets out, though, and lands a shot from up top. They stand up, and when Figueroa engages, Reinhardt immediately drops to his back. They stand up again, and Reinhardt lands a decent right of his own. Back on the feet, Figueroa again lands a couple good shots and gets Reinhardt back on the ground, where he proceeds to land some pretty stiff shots from standing. Reinhardt does a somersault and rolls over. He has basically given up and is just laying there as the ref looks at him when the horn sounds. It's a 10-8 round for Figueroa thanks to Reinhardt's running.

Round 2: We're going to do a second round of this thing, and this time they touch gloves. Reinhardt again is on his horse, then shoots when Figueroa engages. There's a scramble, and Figueroa ends up on top in full mount. Reinhardt rolls over and covers up and he's not long for this fight. Pretty quickly, the ref steps in and it's done. So, too, likely, is Reinhardt's UFC career after the running in the first round.

Result: Edwin Figueroa def. Jason Reinhardt, TKO, 0:50 Round 2

Man, that was a tight Darce attempt by Volkman, but Danny defended really well! Tough round to call, I'm leaning towards Volkman, mainly just 'cause I'm rooting for him.

Ref is having to warn Castillo over & over about grabbing the fence & grabbing Volkman's shorts. Nice scramble between the wrestlers that I'm hoping MMAFighting.com captures well because it was a flurry of position exchanges. Second ends & I think Brian got this one as well. He threatened with a ton subs.

It's to the point now where Urijah & Danny's corner are telling him to abandon the TD attempts. Yet another Darce attempt by Volkamn. I think this make about 73 so far. Every time that Rogan starts saying "O, this ones deep! Danny's in trouble!", Castillo finds a way to pop out, but then Volkman's right back on him.

WHAT!!!!! Yamasaki's a frakking moron!! Brian's got his 75th Darce locked in & is trying to finish and Mario starts mumbling about "I'm gonna stand you guys up."

UD to Vollkman, 29-28, guess they gave Danny the first.

MMAFighting.com's take:

Quote:
Round 1: The legendary Mario Yamasaki gets things going. No glove touch. Volkmann shoots in early and they have a scramble in the clinch, but not much comes from it. They break apart and dance. Decent body kick from Castillo, who shortly thereafter misses a nice high kick. Then he lands an outside leg kick, followed by one on the inside. Volkmann shoots again and gets a soft takedown and looks to pass from half guard. He ties up Castillo's right arm, then works for a side choke. But trying to hold on to that position costs him, as Castillo works his way out and gets top position. Volkmann settles back into guard, then nicely wall walks back to his feet as they clinch up. They separate around 1:50 and move back to the middle. After trading rights, Castillo lands one of the loudest body kicks in recorded history (we think) to Volkmann's left ribcage. But Volkmann survives it and the two wind up in a scramble on the ground. It's a tough first round to score, with each guy looking pretty effective. But MMA Fighting will give it, highly unofficially, to Castillo 10-9.

Round 2: After a few seconds of dancing, we clinch up along the fence. A few traded shots lead to Volkmann on his butt looking for a choke, and Castillo trying to work ground and pound. Yamasaki warns Castillo for holding Volkmann's shorts and says he'll take a point if he does it again. Volkmann wall walks back up, and then Castillo is warned for grabbing the fence, though it looked mild. A weird scramble leads to Volkmann on his back briefly, then on his knees, and he wrestles Castillo to his back and is in half guard. Then work for position, and Volkmann briefly has a choke that he can't lock up as Castillo tries to reverse position. He works for it again, and it's an arm-in modified guillotine. But Castillo will survive the round. Round 2 goes to Volkmann on our card, 10-9.

Round 3: Castillo lands a nice right hand 10 seconds in. Forty seconds later, the next action is a nice inside leg kick from him. They hit the ground briefly, but Volkmann has the edge there before Castillo scrambles quickly out and back to his feet. The crowd cheers the cat-and-mouse game. A short exchange in the middle leads to Volkmann again taking top position on the ground, controlling Castillo's head and neck from half guard. He looks for some short elbows, but mainly this is a control game with Castillo's right arm locked up. Volkmann isn't doing much with the position, and it doesn't look like it's a choke he can lock down from where he's at. Castillo wiggles out, but Volkmann gets to side control and looks for more elbows and again traps an arm and controls Castillo's head. Castillo throws right knees from the ground, but that's all he can do. The crowd is booing what it deems a stalling game by Volkmann. Castillo rolls over, and Volkmann works for his back. But nothing will happen. It's a 10-9 third for Volkmann, and MMA Fighting scores the fight for him 29-28. No doubt some judges will have it 30-27 for him.

Result: Jacob Volkmann def. Danny Castillo, unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

TJ looks to have hurt himself on a leg kick, like he jacked up his ankle or foot or something. Cole is moving in on him & finding a better range now. Obrien seems to have recovered & is throwing more easily. I feel like TJ land a few more strikes, so I edge it towards him.

Wow! Heck of a finish by Cole! He dropped TJ with a left hook, threw a storm of leg kicks as TJ lay on his back until Obrien got sick of it & tried to get up, grabbed a guillotine, locked in a body triangle from guard, swept over into mount, & got the tap out to a one-arm guillotine. Absolutely slick!

Round 1: They touch gloves, surprising given yesterday's heated moment at the weigh-ins. These guys are both tall. Not Stefan Struve tall, but tall. We dance for 30 seconds, looking for position. Both throw a few kicks and rights that miss. Miller blocks a high kick and pushes forward, but O'Brien just misses a big uppercut right that has the crowd making one giant "Ooooooh!" sound. O'Brien lands a nice body shot that has Miller thinking that wasn't very nice. And O'Brien then comes forward with a nice combination. He blocks some of Miller's combos a short time later, then checks an outside leg kick. With 90 seconds left, Miller lands a big right, then just misses another but follows it with an outside leg kick. He lands a pair of stiff left jabs, then a third. O'Brien blocks a high Miller kick, then comes forward with a body shot. It's a pretty close first round, but we'll go 10-9 Miller though it could go either way.

Round 2: We trade leg kicks and look for openings to start the first minute of Round 2. Miller then backpedals to re-set. O'Brien comes forward and has Miller backing up just for a second, but Miller drops him with a left and starts to work kicks from up top while O'Brien lays on his back. But a really nice scramble by O'Brien has him to his feet but just for a second. Miller dives back in and cranks on a guillotine, and he's got it good. Though O'Brien is trying to get out, he can't and he has to tap.

Result: Cole Miller def. T.J. O'Brien, submission (guillotine), 2:38 Round 2

Ah, geez, it's Bruce Leroy now & he's fighting a new guy that's coming in on late notice to replace Leonard Garcia. Here's hoping he gets beat up.

Looks like some kinda Carlos Newton wanna be.

Hettes throws every punch with his head down. He's in big danger of getting KOed if he fights the better strikers in the division.

Really good back & forth between these two, neither one of them back down or slow up, Alex mainly attacking with strikes while Jimy's going after subs. Alex had the better of most of the exchanges, I think.

Wow! Slick hip toss from Hettes to start the round. These guys are picking up right where they left off in round 1. Hettes manages to lock up an RNC & got the tap when Alex tried to muscle a takedown. Rally good fight, could easily get FotN if Hardy/Lytle ends in a KO.

Vemola vs. Marks now. Rogan just pointed out that even though Vemola's Czech wrestling champ, Markes has a dangerous guard.

Goldie - "That was the definition of 'swinging for the fences'."
Joe - "Yeah, those were wild arm punches. Don't do that at home, kids."

Man, Markes is taking down Vemola's with ease! Vemola's able to find ways back to his feet, but Ronny just elevates & takes him down again. Round 1 is definitely in favor of the Brazilian. Vemola's tries for a guillotine as the round expires & drops off (Markes was standing), landing hard on the mat. Vemola's looks really winded & took a while to stand back up & head for his corner.

Vemola's looks really discouraged. Ronny has already taken him down twice. Halfway through the fight & both guys are starting to slow down. Markes is landing just about any takedown he wants at this point on the six-time national wrestling champ. (and dumbass drunk morons are booing ). Rnd 2 is also easily in the Brazilian's favor.

Vemola's corner let him know he was down 2 rounds & he comes out fired up, but Markes slips the punches & avoids the TD attempt before landing an easy TD of his own. Ronny Markes should get an easy 30-27 decision.

MMAFighting.com's recap of the last two fights:

Quote:
Alex Caceres vs. Jim Hettes

Round 1: We touch 'em up with Herb Dean running a tight ship. Crazy scramble has both dudes flying everywhere, and neither doing much. But it looked fun. Hettes gets Caceres' ankle for a second, but Caceres scrambles out and lands a few strikes up top. Hettes is on his back and Caceres keeps diving back in looking for strikes. Eventually, it costs him and he winds up on his back with Hettes up top looking for his next move. The crowd starts to chant "Leeroy!" and maybe it helps Caceres gets back to his feet and is back looking for strikes from up top with Hettes on his back. But again, they flop positions.On his back, Caceres briefly has a triangle, but Hettes is too skilled on the ground to worry about that. Back on the feet, Caceres nearly lands an illegal knee, but Dean thinks it was OK. Hettes looks for a leg lock, and Caceres falls back into guard. It's a weird first round, but we'll give it to Caceres 10-9.

Round 2: Before anyone really knows what has happened, we've got a scramble in the clinch, and Hettes throws Caceres onto the mat and is looking for a choke. Caceres squirms out, but back on the feet it's more of the same. Hettes has it back to the floor in a tick, and has a body triangle locked on looking for a choke. Caceres gets to guard briefly, but Hettes postures up and lands strikes. Again, Hettes gets a choke, and again he can't finish it. He then grabs an arm, but Caceres gets out and back to his feet, where Hettes will again look for a takedown. He gets it rather easily and is in side control. It looks like Hettes is cleeding, and it may have come from an inadvertent head butt between the two 30 seconds earlier. But on the feet, Hettes pretty easily locks in a rear naked choke, takes Caceres' back, forces him back to the ground, and soon Bruce Leeroy is tapping out.

Result: Jim Hettes def. Alex Caceres, submission (rear naked choke), 3:12 Round 2

Karlos Vemola vs. Ronny Markes

Round 1: The two biggest guys on tonight's show touch 'em up and we get throwing. They engage immediately and clinch their big selves against the cage. Markes takes this fight in place of Stephan Bonnar, who had a knee injury, and he makes his UFC debut. He's got Vemola pushed against the fence, and the two are trading knees. But Vemola pushes back to break apart, and they both throw some gigantic heavy hands that just miss. Someone's going to hurt someone at this pace. Markes shoots for a double and gets a gentle takedown near Vemola's corner. He'll need to wall walk, and he does so pretty easily. But Markes puts him right back down. Both big men trade short punches from the ground, and with 1:45 left, Vemola gets back up. But Markes puts him right back on his booty. Again Vemola works up, and with 30 seconds left the two stall along the fence. Vemola pushes off, but Winds up on his back again for his troubles. He sinks a guillotine as the round winds down, but Markes only needs to survive a few seconds before the horn. We'll score it 10-9 for the newcomer, Ronny Markes.

Round 2: Vemola throws a big looping right and pushes in, but Markes clinches him up. They break apart and go back to center, where Vemola lands a couple nice shots before Markes, mostly defensively, bullies his way in and pushes things back to the canvas. As strong as Vemola is, Markes looks to be stronger. And once again, when Vemola tries to power up to his feet, Markes quickly neutralizes him and gets it back to the mat. This happens another couple times, shockingly, and with a minute left the crowd responds as if a Bears or Cubs fan just walked in the place. A mostly uneventful Round 2, which is a shame because the start of the fight looked like a slobberknocker was about to ensue. It's 10-9 for Markes in this round, as well.

Round 3: Again we start out looking like guns blazing and with these guys, they're more Gatling cannons than mere guns. But again, Markes ties things up and keeps Vemola at bay. A minute in, he puts him back on his back in guard. It'll be hard for Vemola to get a finish from there, which is probably what he needs for a victory. Someone in the crowd yells out, "Nobody's watching anymore." He might be right. This fight probably ain't gonna make it to the Versus telecast. Markes continues to control things on the ground, moving to side control, then north-south briefly, then back to side control. Vemola has no answers for it and can't get up. Some members of Press Row check to see how things shook out at the PGA Championship. (Not naming names.) The fight finishes on the ground with Markes doing little in the way of offense and Vemola not able to do much to change the course of things. It's an easy 10-9 round for Markes, and he wins the fight on our card 30-27.

Result: Ronny Markes def. Karlos Vemola, unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

Herman vs. Noke now. Man, Ed's doing an amazing job of attacking with arm bars & triangles, but Noke's able to defend & is able to start passing the guard, but Ed grabs an inside heel hook & rips up Kyle's knee before Kyle decides to tap.
