R1: Birchak lands a left kick to the body but he's stung by a salvo of counters from Lopes, who then forces a clinch. Lopes slips around to the rear waist cinch and hooks a leg in but he's out of position for his belly-to-belly suplex attempt. Birchak reverses but Lopes pops back up to his feet and, again, takes the back of Birchak in the transition. Lopes jumps to standing back control with both hooks in and Birchak calmly walks him over to his corner.
Lopes gets sloppy on another throw attempt and this time Birchak secures top position. Scattered ground-and-pound from Birchak before Lopes gets back to his feet and separates, though Birchak lands an up-knee on the break. They trade simultaneous left hooks but Lopes' lands cleaner and harder. Lopes glues himself to Birchak and moves to the rear waist lock with ease. Lopes hooks his leg again, ducking a Birchak elbow that sails over his head. 10-9 Lopes.
R2: Birchak slips a left kick under the elbow of Lopes and into his ribs. They engage in a prolonged and fairly high-paced exchange of punches, both landing their fair share. Birchak puts him on the fence and quickly separates with a hard left hook that buckles the legs of Lopes, who responds with a crushing left hook of his own.
Birchak drives Lopes into the fence and secures double under-hooks. After a short struggle, Lopes gets the double unders and puts Birchak on the cage. Birchak nearly gets to the rear waist cinch but Lopes defends and reclaims his clinch position. Lopes gets halfway behind Birchak and again hooks the outside leg as Birchak goes to the kimura counter. 10-10.
R3: The competitors hug it out and raise their arms to incite the crowd to begin the final stanza. Birchak glances with a counter elbow on a clinch break. Lopes tries to knife in and attack the hips of Birchak but the attempt is thwarted and Birchak separates. Quick counter jump-knee lands to the body for Birchak. Both fighters are just off the mark with heavy combinations in successive exchanges.
They trade right hands. Birchak follows with a fast one-two and catches Lopes. Lopes tags Birchak with a slick counter left. And another from Lopes. Now it's Birchak who scores with a counter left before stuffing a Lopes double-leg attempt. Birchak lands a few knees to the body before Lopes can separate. Glancing left from Lopes. Now a clean counter left from Lopes, then another clubbing left to the head. 10-9 Birchak. I have it a 29-29 draw.
- Anthony Birchak defeats Dileno Lopes by split decision (27-30, 29-28 x2)
R1: Doane starts with a spark, slinging heavy left hands and a pair of left kicks to the body. Switch right hook from Doane that flows into a knee downstairs from the single collar tie. Now it's another piston-like left that lands for Doane and he tacks on a clean right hook that wobbles Munhoz. Munhoz forces a clinch and they trade elbows to the face before Munhoz changes levels and hits a takedown.
Doane battles back to his feet but can't break the clinch. Munhoz, with a stream of crimson running down the center of his face, grapevines a leg as if to pursue back control, then switches to the front headlock and falls back for a tight guillotine. It's tight and Doane taps, giving us our fifth consecutive submission of the night.
Pedro Munhoz defeats Russell Doane by submission (guillotine choke) R1 2:08
R1: Arantes opens with a whirlwind of aggressive kicks, all of which are dodged or blocked. Chopping inside low kick from Arantes, who swarms Sanders with punches and puts him down with a sharp knee. Sanders turtles and Arantes goes to the front headlock while sprawled out. Arantes looks to take Sanders' back as he's scrambling out but Sanders sweeps into top position. Suffocating control from Sanders, then he nearly gift-wraps one of Arantes' arms.
Arantes fights it off but Sanders slithers into full mount and bases down with heavy hips. While Sanders is in full mount, the ref intelligently barks at him to improve position, both an impossibility and a clear overreaction to the howls of the impatient crowd. Sanders keeps heavy top control but isn't offering too much in the form of effective offense. Arantes goes onto his right hip and Sanders unleashes a short flurry of solid ground-and-pound. 10-9 Sanders.
R2: Sanders waits for Arantes to commit to strikes before countering with a double-leg attempt. Arantes defends initially but ends up succumbing to it. Closed guard for Arantes with his head pinned on the cage. Arantes telegraphs an armbar but still manages to sink it in and, surprisingly, forces a lightning-fast tapout.
- Felipe Arantes defeats Jerrod Sanders by submission (armbar) R2
R1: Glancing lead left hook from Sajewski to back Burns off. Now a left round kick to the body from Sajewski followed by another lead left hook that lands, this time downstairs. Burns rushes him and puts him on the cage in the over-under. Sajewski lands a right hand to break the clinch, then crushes Burns with another left hook to the body, and Burns might be hurt. The action is rudely interrupted with an inside low kick from Burns that hurtles directly into Sajewski's cup. We pause for the obligatory genital rehab.
Sajewski starts switching stances on the reset but settles on orthodox. Burns tags Sajewski with a punch and it staggers him briefly. Burns forces a clinch and goes to the front headlock, and Sajewski hits a suplex reversal, rolling Burns over his head and returning to his feet. Burns stays on him, clinching up with short punches that lead into a takedown. Burns pounds away before moving to back control with a body triangle locked on. In the waning seconds, Burns brazenly slings a leg over Sajewski's shoulder and transitions fluidly into an armbar. Burns straightens out the arm and Sajewski cries out in the pain, inspiring the ref to jump in.
- Gilbert Burns defeats Lukasz Sajewski by submission (armbar) R1 4:57
R1: Vieira comes out heaving a one-two that Beltran sidesteps. Beltran lands a short left while retreating, then glances with a quick counter knee as Vieira forces a clinch. Vieira hits a takedown but Beltran pops back up. Vieira sticks with the double leg and yanks Beltran's hips off the cage to take him down. Cradle pass for Vieira but Beltran stands back up in the transition, then gets away with a quick fence grab to disrupt Vieira's takedown.
They reset in the center. Beltran goes airborne with a wild flying knee but ends up dinging Vieira with a left hook. Now a sturdy knee lands for Beltran. Blood is now streaming down the center of Vieira's face but he manages to catch Beltran with a short uppercut. Step-off left lands for Beltran. 10-9 Beltran.
R2: Vieira has a significant vertical gash on his eyebrow, right next to his nose. This doesn't stop him from wading forward and tagging Beltran with some thuggish punches in the phone booth, which set up a clean double leg for Vieira. Beltran is slippery off his back but Vieira catches him with some ground-and-pound.
Beltran angles for a submission, then flings a volley of up-kicks to the face of Vieira: one glances, the next flattens Vieira, who lands with a rather confused look on his face. Perhaps on instinct, Vieira counters with a leg lock that's surprisingly effective. Beltran shakes loose and immediately transitions to Vieira's back, then sinks in a deep rear-naked choke. Vieira taps.
- Marco Beltran defeats Reginaldo Vieira by submission (rear-naked choke) R2 3:04
R1: Luque glances with an inside low kick 30 seconds in, but he's warned for a potential low blow on his second offering. Luque snaps an outside low kick home but Herrera blasts him with a mean right cross. Luque fires a jab and times a beautiful single leg, finishing it. Herrera bounces off the canvas and Luque keeps him on the fence, pursuing a double leg.
Luque peels him off the fence and finishes the takedown, landing in Herrera's full guard. Luque keeps Herrera's head pinned on the fence, then unleashes a few short left elbows to the head, also passing to half guard. Luque tries to step over and pin Herrera's left arm to no avail. Herrera goes onto his left hip and stands up, and is finally able to separate. Herrera plugs Luque with a stiff body shot before he's jammed on the fence and taken down again. Two sharp left elbows from Luque on top. 10-9 Luque.
R2: Luque starts the second in southpaw but quickly returns to orthodox. Luque scores with a left hook and a left round kick to the body. Luque changes levels for a double leg, switches to a single leg to drive Herrera onto the fence, then switches back to a double to complete the takedown. Full, closed guard for Herrera, again with his head jammed on the fence. Grinding cross-face elbows from Luque. Herrera nearly boots Luque off with two feet on his chest but Luque retains top position.
Herrera battles back to his feet and blocks a spinning back elbow. Luque partially lands a double flying knee and flows into an easy double leg, this time landing in side mount. Luque turns the clock and laces on an anaconda choke while, oddly, Herrera stays flat on his back. Luque cranks it and Herrera cries uncle.
