It was short but sweet.
I have only gotten the first fight right

That's the thing with an all HW card, this thing could all be over in under 10 min of actual fighting.

Diego Brandao vs. Darren Elkins

Round 1:
Herb Dean gives the signal to start us off, and the fighters come to the center. Elkins paws forward with a jab, and Brando misses with a big uppercut. Elkins drops under a Brando hook and tries for a takedown. They trade top and bottom position for a while, with each man threatening with submissions. Back on their feet, Brandao comes running in with a jumping knee that nearly decapitates Elkins. How heís still conscious, I donít know, but he seems to have recovered enough to defend himself on the mat, so Brandao lets him up. A hook by Brandao wobbles Elkins, then an uppercut as he tries to stagger forward. Brandao is laying a beating on Elkins, but Elkins is taking it surprisingly well. His eyes seem clear and heís defending reasonably well. Brandao pauses between attacks in the final minute, and ends the round taking a breather in Elkinsís guard.

Round 2:
Elkins is making an effort to cover up his face as he starts the second. Can you blame him. Brandao stays out of range in the early going, then charges in with a knee. Again, Elkins takes it well. Creative little elbow strike by Brandao, but Elkins keeps firing back. He even gets Brandao down, perhaps by a trip or a slip, and tries to work from his guard. Elkins stands up and nearly takes Brandaoís back when the Brazilian tries to kick him away. Instead he settles for battering him from the top position before moving to half-guard and then full mount. Elkins opens up with a barrage of punches from the top. Dean is taking a close look, but the assault might be more light than heat. Brandao does just enough to survive the round, but now he knows heís in a fight.

Round 3:
Elkins wastes little time getting the fight back to the mat in the final round. You canít blame him, considering the way this night has gone so far. He stays active from the top position, and though he might not be doing much damage he is at least keeping Dean from standing them up. Elkins passes Brandaoís guard and gets mount again, with a little over two minutes still to go. Brandao doesnít look like he has much left. Elkins hammers away on his ribs, then tries to lock up a guillotine from the top. Brandao struggles to his feet in the final minute. Elkins tries to get him back down, but makes the critical error of pulling Brandao on top of him. Brandao stands up out of Elkinsís guard and lands one more big right hand before the horn sounds to end the fight. This could be close.

Darren Elkins def. Diego Brandao via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Stefan Struve vs. Lavar Johnson

Round 1:
Josh Rosenthal is our referee. Johnson wastes no time going to work on Struve, backing him against the fence with a thunderous body shot and then slamming an uppercut home. Struve takes it well and clinches up, then quickly pulls guard and rolls for an armbar. Johnson canít get his arm out, and is a little slow in tapping as Struve flips him over. Rosenthal gets in there right away to try and save him, but judging by his wincing expression, the damage may already be done. Struve gets up and runs around the cage in celebration.

Stefan Struve def. Lavar Johnson via submission (armbar) at 1:05 of round 1

Yeeeeeouch!!!

Stipe Miocic vs. Shane del Rosario

Round 1:
Yves Lavigne is the third man in the cage for this bout. Miocic gets the first decent blow in with a straight right counter to a del Rosario low kick. SDS (yeah, weíre doing that now) apologizes for catching Miocic in the groin with that one. SDS gets his kicks working, attacking Miocicís legs and body. Miocic seems to have put a lot of his faith in the straight right. Good punch combo by SDS, followed by a blocked head kick. Miocic spins away from the fence and fires back. Another good straight lands for Miocic. SDS hammers him with a left that knocks him back into the fence. Both these guys are showing off serious beards so far. Lesser heavyweights would be unconscious by now. Head kick lands flush for SDS, but Miocic walks right through it and gets the takedown. This could be a long, rough fight if the current pace
holds.

Round 2:
SDS gets the kicks working right away to start the second. If theyíre bothering Miocic in the slightest, he isnít letting it show. Takedown by Miocic. He adds some hammer fists and then tries, unsuccessfully, to slip into mount. SDS defends well from the bottom, but Miocic is in complete control from the top, working short elbows and hammerfists from SDSís half-guard. SDS is a bloody mess now. Itís hard to even tell where heís bleeding from. More elbows in close by Miocic, and Lavigne has seen all he needs to see. This one is over. SDS staggers to his feet before his cornermen rush in to keep him from falling over.

Stipe Miocic def. Shane del Rosario via TKO (elbows) at 3:14 of round 2

Roy Nelson vs. Dave Herman

Round 1:
Steve Mazzagatti will ref this one. Herman gets us started with a series of push kicks that keep Nelson at a distance. Nelson picks his spot and lunges in with a looping overhand right that spins Herman around and drops him to his knees. He follows up with a couple more rights, but Mazzagatti is already on his way in to stop it. Herman gets up right away, swaying gently as he protests the stoppage.

Roy Nelson def. Dave Herman via TKO (punches) at 0:51 of round 1
