Default Fight Night 25 *SPOILERS*

Courtesty mmafighting.com

Justin Edwards vs. Jorge Lopez

Round 1:
Wanderlei Silva protege Lopez is making his UFC debut and is a pretty sizable favorite in this one. He's got "The Axe Murderer" in his corner, naturally. Bruce Buffer runs the intros, and we're ready to roll with Kevin Mulhall the third man in the Octagon. They trade in tight early, and Edwards looks for a throw, but settles for a clinch against the cage. But Lopez lifts him for a nice slam right into a guillotine. Edwards cranks on it, but Lopez rolls out and eventually pops back to his feet. He throws a nice right kick that Edwards counters with some more clinch work. In tight, Edwards lands a couple nice hooks, then a soft slam. But again Lopez pops up. And again Edwards softly takes him down. He looks for a guillotine again, but settles for keeping position on the mat, trying to work ground and pound. The fight moves back to the feet halfway through the round. Jabs are traded, with each fighter landing a nice one in close. A nice knee from Lopez briefly has Edwards on the canvas with Lopez looking for some quick short strikes. But back on the feet, Edwards ties things up again with his back on the fence. Another nice knee from Lopez lands, but Edwards chases him down with a flurry and they trade position along the fence. Lopez landed some decent shots in the round, but MMA Fighting will score the round 10-9 for Edwards.

Round 2:
Edwards opens with a left jab, then eats a high right kick. But he comes back with a spinning back kick right to Lopez's gut. Back along the fence, Edwards again lands a little takedown and has good position in side control. He works to sink in a guillotine and gets it. It looks tight, but Lopez barely pops out and briefly has top position until they go back to their feet. After several Edwards near-chokes so far, Lopez might believe he needs to keep this standing. Edwards again works for a little takedown and works to take Lopez's back. Lopez looks absolutely exhausted as Edwards starts laying on the ground and pound. It's getting close as Mulhall looks in, but Lopez gives one burst of energy and reverses to pop out. After a short stall in the clinch, Mulhall splits them up with 30 seconds left in the round. Edwards lands a couple nice kicks as we get to the end. We'll give another 10-9 round to Edwards heading to the last.

Round 3:
They touch gloves for the last. Lopez has probably been told he'll need to finish, and he lands a nice right hand early. Lopez ties Edwards up, and Edwards throws knees. Then Lopez lifts him for a nice slam. Edwards is looking for an armbar from his side. But Lopez finally gets out of it, gets mount, then takes Edwards' back and starts looking for ground and pound. Edwards is squirming to try and get out, and Lopez gives up the back. He keeps dominant position on the ground, moving from side control to north-south briefly, then back to side control. He lands some short right elbows as Edwards looks for a way out. And finally, Edwards gets back to his feet. With 1:20 left, Lopez again gets a short takedown, but Edwards falls into guard. Edwards gets an armbar with 20 seconds left, but he can't hold it. We'll give the third to Lopez, 10-9, but the fight should go to Edwards 29-28 in a fairly major upset.

Result: Justin Edwards def. Jorge Lopez, unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Mike Lullo vs. Robert Peralta

Round 1:
High kick from Lullo to open. Then he eats one to the outside. They trade a few kicks, then Peralta ties up and lands some knees. He uses them to get a soft taekdown before letting Lullo back up. They trade jabs. Then several kicks each. After his UFC debut loss against Edson Barboza last November, you'd think Lullo would be pretty fed up with eating kicks by now. But he's throwing plenty himself. Peralta checks a kick, then comes with a nice combo. Then again. Lullo's left thigh is blistering red from kicks already. Nice right hand from Peralta lands, and he comes back with two more huge kicks to Lullo's lead leg. Peralta then again lands some big kicks that take Lullo off his feet it's literally like watching a replay of the Lullo-Barboza fight. It's a 10-9 round for Peralta.

Round 2:
More kicks from Peralta. And Lullo has a large hematoma on the left side of his head. Peralta goes right after it. More kicks from Peralta force Lullo to shoot, and he ties things up along the fence. Things stall out for a minute as Lullo keeps Peralta tied up at least he's not eating kicks. They break at 1:30 and trade leg kicks. Again Lullo shoots, but it's not there. A nice kick from Lullo closes the round. It's definitely a closer round, but we're going to give it to Peralta again, 10-9.

Round 3:
Nice little barrage from Peralta to start things. They stall out, for the most part, for a good long stretch with looking for position, but Peralta comes back and lands some nice shots. Another Lullo shot is stuffed by Peralta. Peralta looks for knees along the fence, and Lullo ties him up and looks for knees of his own. Lullo then lands a pretty gentle takedown, but it's a takedown nonetheless. WIth 40 seconds left, they move back to the feet, and Peralta lands a nice right as a counter to a Lullo kick. But Lullo takes him down again. Not much will happen as the round comes to an end. Closer, and the takedowns might have given the round to Lullo. We'll say they did, barely, and go 10-9 Lullo in the third, but 29-28 Peralta in the fight.

Result: Robert Peralta def. Mike Lullo, unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

Mike Stumpf vs. T.J. Waldburger

Round 1:
Quick kick from Waldburger takes Stumpf's leg right out from under him, and Waldburger is on his back instantly looking for the kind of finish that fans who had too much to drink on Bourbon Street last night are hoping for. Waldburger isn't doing a ton with the position, but he's trying to get it more secure and look for a choke or some solid ground-and-pound opportunities. He goes for an armbar, it's not there, and Stumpf gets back up and briefly looks for offense. But almost just as quickly, Waldburger has him back down. There's a fun scramble that has Stumpf backing up on the feet, after a rollout, and as Waldburger comes forward Stumpf throws a knee that just misses. And almost before anyone knows what has happened, Waldburger gets an arm, locks it up, looks for a triangle with an arm in and pretty quickly Stumpf is forced to tap.

Result: T.J. Waldburger def. Mike Stumpf, submission (triangle choke), 3:52 Round 1

Seth Baczynski vs. Clay Harvison

Round 1:
After some kick feints, Baczynski lands a nice combo. Harvison follows it with a smacking inside leg kick. They trade in close, and Harvison lands a nice right. But Baczynski comes back strong, lands a couple close shots, then ties things up and looks for knees. A flying knee after they separate just misses. Another a moment later lands. A minute later, after landing more kicks and knees, he throws it again and has Harvison still guessing. With a minute to go, they tie up against the fence. On the break, Baczynski lands a nice right. As the round comes to a close, there's a brief flurry from each fighter. It's a 10-9 round for Baczynski in the first on our card.


Round 2:
In a flash, Baczynski gets Harvison to the ground, dives in, moves in quickly for a rear naked choke attempt, and locks it up. Harvison quickly has to tap. It's an impressive win for Baczynski.

Result: Seth Badzynski def. Clay Harvison, submission (rear naked choke), 1:12 Round 2

Ken Stone vs. Donny Walker

Round 1:
Early tie up from Stone and he pushes Walker along the fence. Stone works to get things to the ground and does, then lands a few decent short shots to the body. Stone works for a rear naked choke and he 's got it. But Walker is trying to fight his way out of it. He rolls over and is refusing to tap. Stone tells the ref to check on Walker, and he is indeed out. Nice win for Stone and the third straight submission tonight.

Result: Ken Stone def. Donny Walker, submission, 2:40 Round 1

He's been learning from Lawler with those flying knees and vicious uppercuts!
