Hioki with a head kick that gets a piece of its target. Hioki's long jab has been a good weapon, snapping Palaszewski's head back a few times.

Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch


Round 1:
Boetsch paws forward with a jab and front kick. Okami comes back with a sharp left. Good right hand jab from Okami gives Boetsch something to think about. Boetsch tries to reset and Okami knocks him off with another right. Boetsch charges in with right hooks, but Okami avoids them well. Takedown attempt by Boetsch, and Okami shuts it down without much difficulty. Good one-two by Okami batters Boetsch. Okami seems to have a clear edge on the feet so far. Boetsch attacks the body with kicks. Short jab by Okami has Boetsch checking to see if his nose is still there. Boetsch is bleeding from his cheeks and clearly off-balance as the opening round ends. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Okami.

Round 2:
Okami goes back on the attack right away, stinging Boetsch with a knee and then getting into a clinch and taking Boetsch down two minutes in. Boetsch looks for a guillotine, but only succeeds in stalling Okami’s advance briefly. Okami gets to half-guard and looks for a kimura. As Boetsch defends, Okami moves to full mount. Okami opens up with punches from the top, but settles for ending the round on top, clearly in control. MMA Fighting scores the round 10-9 for Okami.

Round 3:
Boetsch starts the third in a bit of a desperation mode, charging forward with big right hands. Okami gets caught, and he’s reeling. Boetsch stays on him and pounds the Japanese fighter with one brutal uppercut after another in close. Okami drops and Boetsch keeps on him. A few more punches is all it takes, and Boetsch has snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat.

Tim Boetsch def. Yushin Okami via TKO at 0:54 of round three.

Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Jake Shields

Round 1:
Akiyama comes shuffling forward, clearly mindful of Shields’ takedown ability. Shields tries one, then resorts to a couple kicks before diving back in for a single-leg. Akiyama defends well and turns Shields’ back against the fence. They break and Shields lands a nice right, then tries another failed takedown attempt a few seconds later. Uppercut by Akiyama, and Shields briefly gets Akiyama down but can’t capitalize. Shields moves to the back in the clinch, but Akiyama slips away again. Final minute of the round, Akiyama slides in for a tricky little leg trip that briefly puts Shields down. They end the round back on the feet. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Akiyama.

Round 2:
Head kick by Shields to start the second. Akiyama defends well and tries that same trip, but Shields isn’t taken in so easily this time. Spinning back fist by Akiyama, but Shields seems unfazed. Shields tries for another takedown and gets stuffed again. Shields doubles up on the jab and pops Akiyama’s head back. Akiyama keeps plowing forward, and manages a throw that puts Shields down for a second. Shields pops back up and looks for a takedown, then tries for Akiyama’s back in the clinch before the round ends. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Shields.

Round 3:
Shields’ corner tells him he definitely needs to win the third, which is probably good advice. He comes out with more lead kicks, but he’s also gushing blood from his nose, so you wonder which the judges notice more. Good jabs by Shields, but Akiyama lands a heavy right in close. Another failed takedown attempt by Shields, and he settles for a clinch. Final two minutes, and Shields keeps after that takedown. He can’t quite finish it all the way, but Akiyama seems to be entirely on the defensive now. The ref breaks them in the final minute of the fight, and Shields uses those kicks to distract Akiyama long enough to get a truly effective takedown. Shields moves to take his back, and Akiyama gets away with a couple obvious fence grabs. Shields gets both hooks in nonetheless and ends the fight on his back, looking for the choke as the time ticks away. MMA Fighting scores the round 10-9 for Shields.

Jake Shields def. Yoshihiro Akiyama via unanimous decision (30-27 x 3)

Cheick Kongo vs. Mark Hunt

Round 1:
Hunt slips on a kick right away, and Kongo takes the opportunity to charge in for a clinch. Hunt quickly turns him around and gets away. Kongo pumps out the jab, but Hunt seems to be loading up for one big one. Kongo charges in with a punch and Hunt counters with a left hook that staggers Kongo. Moments later, Hunt moves in close after a right hand gets through Kongo’s guard. He fires off several more rights and Kongo drops. Hunt jumps on him and finishes it with a couple extra punches before Herb Dean is forced to move in. This one is over.

Mark Hunt def. Cheick Kongo at 2:11 of round one

Anyone else think Herb might have stopped it a little bit too early?

Rampage Jackson vs. Ryan Bader

Round 1:
After an intense staredown, Jackson quickly gets into square-off mode in the center of the Octagon, but Bader opts to shoot instead. He can’t get the takedown, so he settles for the clinch against the fence before giving up on it. Huge looping right from Bader comes over the top and grazes Jackson. Moments later another one connects more solidly, followed by a clinch from Bader. Jackson is having trouble mounting much of an offense. He’s too busy trying not to get taken down, and Bader keeps sneaking in a quick strike here and there. Jackson opens up with some combos in the final seconds, but nothing much lands. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Bader.

Round 2:
Jackson throws a couple big bungalows to start the second, reminding Bader that he has that capability. Clinch against the fence, and Jackson scoops Bader up for a surprising slam that drops Bader on his head. Jackson starting to feel it now, and Bader is looking uncomfortable. Bader recovers and gets the takedown into half-guard. Short elbows from Bader, and scattered boos from the crowd. Jackson tries to work back to his feet in the final two minutes, but Bader isn’t having it. Knees to the thighs by Bader as Jackson gets briefly back to his feet before being planted back on the mat by Bader. We end the round there, with Bader working short strikes from the top. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Bader.

Round 3:
Bader wastes little time closing the distance and getting back into the clinch, but he has to give it up and come back to the center. Jackson’s punches seem to have slowed, and Bader charges back in for another takedown. He moves quickly into side control and Jackson is sucking wind from the bottom. Jackson replaces the guard, but Bader is still grinding away from the top as Jackson works back to his feet, only to be hauled down again. More boos from the crowd, and Jackson looks like he’s just surviving here. The ref encourages Bader to “get busy,” and he responds by looking for a kimura from side control. He can’t finish it, but time is running out anyway. Guillotine attempt by Bader in the final seconds, but an exhausted Jackson holds on until the horn. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 for Bader.

Ryan Bader def. Quinton Jackson via unanimous decision (30-27 x 3)

That was one heck of a fight & I'm stoked that Ben won it. Not gonna, it's kinda bull$h!t that Dana's not giving Frankie a rematch after he forced him into back-to-back rematches for his first 4 title fights. The UFC really wants to force him down to 145.
