They didn't even have his picture up on the fight roster (which BillW pointed out) until a couple days ago.

Shamar Bailey vs. Evan Dunham

Round 1:
Nice kicks from Bailey to open up. This would be a huge victory for him. He blocks a high kick from Dunham. Some short exchanges have Dunham landing a nice popping right hand. Dunham then chases him down and has Bailey backing into the fence and slipping briefly. A few more nice jabs from Dunham land. Then he just misses a high kick. Bailey lands a teep, but Dunham returns fire with a left. Bailey's punches are bigger, but not landing as much as Dunham's. So far, this fight is in sharp contrast to Bailey's UFC debut in June, which was spent mostly on the ground. He hasn't gone there yet. Dunham throws a kick that Bailey catches and uses it for a takedown. There's a little bit of activity after the horn that has Bailey visibly upset and Dunham raises his hand to apologize.

Round 2:
They touch gloves to open the frame, and Dunham gets off some nice exchanges before they split. Dunham lands a nice high right kick, then one to the face a front kick. Some nice exchanges get the crowd interested, but Dunham gets the better of them. Nice right from Bailey lands. Dunham answers with a front kick and just misses an uppercut. Bailey blocks a high right kick, then lands a nice right kick of his own to the body. More kicks are exchanged. Still a little surprising Bailey isn't really looking for a takedown and he's now bleeding near his left eye. Dunham moves in and lands some nice shots as we get to the end of the round.

Round 3:

They touch 'em up for Round 3. And then both come out firing. Nice front kick from Dunham is followed with a right. Bailey staying right in the middle, possibly believing he needs a finish to win. Bailey is getting caught plenty by Dunham, whose striking has been more on point. They trade lefts halfway through, before Bailey just blocks a high kick. Then a right kick to the head from Dunham partially lands. Bailey is cut up on both sides of his face, and Dunham keeps coming. Dunham wants to end the fight, and the crowd senses it. He's landing big shots and kicks, and Bailey is backing up. A kick has Dunham hitting the floor, though, and Bailey moves in quickly but can't capitalize enough. His mouthpiece falls out and there's a brief stoppage to clean it up. WIth 15 seconds left, Dunham gets a guillotine but Bailey will survive the round. It's a 10-9 third for Dunham, and we'll give him the fight 30-27.


Result: Evan Dunham def. Shamar Bailey, unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

Me too, Bonnie (even though I picked Rocha).

Cody McKenzie vs. Vagner Rocha

Round 1:
Very aggressive opening from McKenzie, who comes forward quickly, then tells Rocha to engage him. McKenzie stared Rocha down constantly rom the moment he got in the cage. Rocha tries to tie things up along the fence, but they break and Rocha immediately lands a low blow. McKenzie gets some time before hopping back in. Rocha has a kick blocked, then misses a looping overhand left. Short takedown from Rocha leads right into McKenzie's signature guillotine, but he can't hold it and Rocha pops his head out and is in top position. A weird ground scramble has both guys looking for submissions, and Rocha looks for an armbar. They pop up briefly, but back down Rocha lands a guillotine that transitions to a side choke. But McKenzie wiggles out and gets back to his feet. He comes forward looking for some big strikes with 30 seconds left, and he lands a couple as Rocha smiles and retreats. Rocha is off to the races as the round closes, looking to stay out of a home run shot. The round actually is very close.

Round 2:
Both guys swing at the same time to open, but it's Rocha that lands a couple clean shots. After 30 seconds, McKenzie brings it to the ground into his guard. Rocha stays active and has a modified guillotine locked in, but McKenzie gets out. Rocha is looking to posture up, but McKenzie gets a guillotine that Rocha has to fight his way out of. McKenzie gives his back, though, and Rocha soon gets mount when McKenzie rolls over. It's a bad spot for McKenzie as Rocha locks up his right afm in a body triangle and starts to land some shots. McKenzie gets his arm free, but rolls over and gives his back. Rocha sinks in a rear naked choke and McKenzie is forced to tap.

Result: Vagner Rocha def. Cody McKenzie, submission (rear-naked choke), 3:49 Round 2

Bonnie, do you want to post the main card results? As usual, they aren't showing them here on the west coast for another 3 hours so I'm going to sign off...

Shields dropped with a knee to the chin from the clinch. TKO stoppage, punches 1st round.......These Strikeforce guys aren't doing very well in the UFC.

Jonathan Brookins vs. Erik Koch

Round 1:
Cautious start for both fighters, and after 30 seconds Brookins moves in looking for a single-leg and has Koch against the fence. They spend a full minute there, with not much activity. They're trading knees here and there, though. Brookins really wants this takedown. He appears strong enough to keep Koch on the fence, but not strong enough to get it down. The crowd grows slightly restless halfway through the round. Then Koch finally gets out and hits a nice left. Then a left outside leg kick. Brookins misses and uppercut. Koch dodges out of a couple jabs, almost Anderson Silva-sytle, then lands another left. Brookins again wants the takedown, but Koch defends along the cage. Koch reverses, then Brookins reverse. Brookins lands a big throw takedown, but it's after the horn. Not a lot of action, but Koch seemed to get the better of things and we'll give him a 10-9 first round.

Round 2:
Snapping outside left leg kick from Koch. Then he goes back to it. Brookins shoots for a single, Koch defends again and lands a right as they scurry to the fence. Decent elbow from Brookins just before the break, but back in the middle Koch lands a nice right kick to the head that gets Brookins' attention. Brookins continues to work to get the fight to the ground, and Koch continues to defend it mostly well. A little scramble sees the fight go to the ground briefly, but it's right back up and into teh clinch along the cage. After a minute, they break and go back to the middle. Another nice leg kick from Koch. Then he tags Brookins with a short combo before Brookins again works for a takedown. This time, he finally makes it work and Koch works out of guard. As he pops up, Brookins lands a nice right. But Koch still gets back to his feet. It's a round very similar to the first not a ton happening, but enough from Koch that we'll give it to him 10-9 again.

Round 3:
Koch peppers Brookins with jabs to open the round. He eats a knee, but gets back to the middle and looks to stay standing. Brookins shoots for another single, but Koch avoids it. Good head movement from Koch in his standup game. Brookins again shoots for a single, but it's not there and it's more clinch work on the fence. After the separate around the 2 minute mark, Koch lands a nice kick, then continues to work his jab. A Superman punch from Brookins doesn't find a home. But they clinch up and Brookins lands his best takedown of the fight. They pop up immediately, though, then clinch again. A nice exchange at the 30-second mark gives the fans some hope, but there's not much to it. Little tougher to score this round, but we'll give it to Koch 10-9 and the fight to him 30-27.

Result: Erik Koch def. Jonathan Brookins, unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27)


Alan Belcher vs. Jason MacDonald

Round 1:
This has the potential to be a fun little scrap. Belcher's been out for 16 months, but is fighting in front of his home bayou fans. MacDonald got some momentum after a submission win in April coming off a near-year layoff. They touch gloves and get rolling. MacDonald misses a couple strikes to start. Belcher ties him up with a quick Thai clinch, but he can't land anything from it. Only 30 seconds in, the crowd is chanting "Alan!" MacDonald reverses and is looking for a takedown, but winds up on his back with Belcher looking for some ground and pound. Belcher postures up and lands a couple good shots, then starts bringing them with a little more intensity. The crowd goes crazy hoping for a finish, but MacDonald covers up and stays mostly safe. Belcher moves into side control, then gets up and lands some good shots from his feet. MacDonald looks to be in a little trouble and is mostly just trying to survive. And soon after, he's taken a few too many. Dan Miragliotta jumps in to stop it, and Belcher has a nice win in his return.

Result: Alan Belcher def. Jason MacDonald, submission (verbal tapout, strikes), 3:48 Round 1


Court McGee vs. Dongi Yang

Round 1:
McGee opens with a leg kick followed by traded jab fakes. Not much happening for 90 seconds, but Yang lands a kick and a punch, then ducks out of the way of McGee's combo until McGee lands a right uppercut. Inside leg kick from Yang lands, and a right cross from McGee just misses. Another inside leg kick from Yang hits, then another, and he just dodges a high kick from McGee. The crowd starts chanting for more action. A left from McGee lands, and it looks like Yang slips and hits the mat for a second. Another couple good kicks from Yang. He's landing them reguarly, but McGee is coming forward a little more. It's a close round. We'll give it to Yang 10-9 based on the leg kicks, but it could go either way.

Round 2:
Nice combo from McGee gets things started. Yang ducks under a punch, but McGee rushes in looking for a takedown. He can't get it and we go back to the center 90 seconds into the round. A long stall of not much action beyond traded jabs and some OK inside leg kicks, but with 90 seconds left McGee lands a nice 1-2. The crowd is booing and wants more than it's getting from this fight. High kick from McGee finds the mark, but not enough to drop Yang. But a couple short uppercuts hit home and wobble Yang briefly. It's a 10-9 second round for McGee on our card.

Round 3:
Good jab from Yang lands. McGee looks briefly for a takedown, but it's not there, and he backs out of Yang's counter. We trade jabs and then out of nowhere, Yang lands a left that drops McGee, and as McGee gets back up Yang lands a knee moving in. We move into rock 'em sock 'em robots mode all of a sudden with 2:40 left, and the crowd appreciates it greatly. Both fighters are cut up on the face. They clinch and look for a takedown, but no dice. Yang now is bleeding a little more, and he spits some blood out onto the canvas. McGee is coming forward and just misses a roundhouse kick. He shoots for a takedown, but Yang defends. They clinch, and McGee gets a nice takedown, then looks to transition to mount but Yang gets up. McGee goes for a tired shot and somehow gets a short takedown. He lands some good elbows at the 10-second mark, then looks to lock in a choke. Yang survives the round, but it's an obvious 10-9 for McGee. We've got the fight for him 29-28.

Result: Court McGee def. Dongi Yang, unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-28)


Jake Shields vs. Jake Ellenberger

Round 1:
Big ovation for Shields as Bruce Buffer announces him. The two Jakes look for position early, and Ellenberger lands the first takedown though Shields pops right back up. Kick from Shields is countered by Ellenberger with with a left-right, and he then drops Shields in a hurry with a pair of big knees. He pounces and starts raining down strikes until it's stopped. It's a tremendously fast finish for Ellenberger and a fairly sizable upset and the second straight loss for Shields more than six years without one.

Result: Jake Ellenberger def. Jake Shields, TKO (strikes), 0:53 Round 1[/QUOTE]
