      Bravo came out and aggressively clinched with Caceres, trying repeatedly to drag him to the ground. The first round ended up being pretty close, but I scored it just slightly in favor of Bravo. The second round had Caceres bouncing around a lot, Bravo tried to corner him while throwing punches, and Caceres dropped him with a clean left hand, and then he jumped on him, looking to setup a choke, and that break in the action gave Bravo some time to recover. Caceres spent the rest of the round beating the shit out of Bravo, mostly with hard left hands, as he bloodied the face of Bravo and rocked him around the cage a few times. This fight is probably all tied up going into the final round.
     The final round had Bravo beating up Caceres, as Caceres looked exhausted. Caceres shot in for a terrible takedown halfway through the round, which Bravo easily stuffed, and then they reset. Bravo looked like he was going to run away with the round, but Caceres fired back with some big kicks late in the round, and he might have stolen the round there. I really have no idea who is going to win this fight, but I would give it to Caceres, 29-28, partially just because I want him to win. The judges basically agreed with me, giving Caceres the hard fought split-decision victory.

      These guys traded a few strikes, they clinched, and then they both hit each other in the groin with knees at the same time, so the fight was paused. When the fight eventually started back up, they went back to trading some strikesd, and Wang blasted Caceres with a hard elbow that rocked him, but Caceres was able to create enough distance to recover. Caceres started to work some creative striking, with a lot of jumping around, and Superman shit, but for the most part, Wang just looked like a rock, as he had no interest in doing anything creative, he just wanted to hurt Caceres. Want dropped Caceres with a brutal left hand late in the round, and then he unloaded with some ground & pound, but Caceres was saved by the buzzer. BUT... Caceres wasn't even able to walk back to his corner without a significant amount of help from multiple people. BUT! The fight continues for some reason? Round one was a 10-8 round for Wang.
     Caceres was still having trouble finding his footing at the start of the second round, but you could see that he was starting to recover as the round progressed, and Wang wasn't being nearly as aggressive as he could have been. Every time Wang hit Caceres though, Caceres looked VERY rocked. Caceres kicked Wang in the wang, but Wang said he wanted to continue, because he didn't want to give Caceres any more time to recover. Shit got REALLY sloppy for a minute or so, as they continued to trade floppy strikes, without really connecting with much of anything significant, but they were both leaving themselves open. Wang blasted Caceres with a massive right that rocked Caceres against with a minute left in the second round. Caceres kept smiling though, and they continued to exchange sloppy punches & kicks. Wang is well on his way to walking away with the decision, but Caceres surprisingly made it to the third round at least.
     They continued to trade with each other at the start of the third round, and Caceres walked chin first into another massive left hand, but Caceres was able to eat it this time. Wang knocked him down with a big right hand 90 seconds into the final round, and Caceres popped back up almost immediately. They continued to trade hard strikes at a solid pace for the duration of the round, and then Caceres kicked Wang in the dick AGAIN, with around 45 seconds left in the fight. When the fight started back up, Caceres came back in, clearly looking to finish the fight, but Wang clinched, slowed him down, and Caceres finished strong by slinging some wild punches. I'm going to give that final round to Caceres, but there is still no real chance that he'll win this fight on the scorecards. Two judges agreed, giving the split-decision victory to Guan Wang. To be honest, even though I wanted Caceres to win this fight, I have no idea what the other judge was thinking when he tried to give the fight to Caceres.

      Caceres came out and threw a lot of kicks to start the first round. Caceres landed some slick punch combinations, and Dy looked a little lost, with his back close to the fence. Caceres kicked him in the head, unloaded with some big punches, Dy threw a kick, Caceres knocked him down with a big counter punch, Caceres jumped on him, slapped on a guillotine, transitioned to back control, locked on the body triangle, and started working for the rear-naked choke with 2 minutes remaining in the opening round. Dy tried to roll out of it, Caceres blasted him with some more punches, and then slapped on the rear-naked choke again. Dy somehow stood up with a minute left in the round, but Caceres quickly took control again with the clinch, and then they reset. Caceres threw some nice kicks, and then Dy clinched, with 30 seconds left in the round, but he wasn't really able to do anything with it. Round one clearly goes to Caceres, probably with a solid 10-8.
     The second round started with a few random strikes, and then the referee paused the fight because Dy's eye was bothering him (from something that happened in the first round). When the fight started back up, Caceres beat the shit out of Dy with some slick combinations, and then Dy scrambled into a back clinch 90 seconds into the round. Caceres spun around into him, and threw some knees at Dy. They eventually split up, and continued to trade strikes at a decent pace. Dy might have done enough to steal that round, but I have Caceres ahead going into the final round, especially since I scored the first round 10-8 in his favor. So, I guess this fight might be at 19-18 going into the third round? Nevermind, it doesn't matter. The referee stopped the fight in between rounds, due to Dy's eye problems. That was a solid win for Alex Caceres.

Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)

      Caceres threw some brutal kicks to start this fight, Knight clinched, but Caceres broke free and continued to throw sharp strikes, including some really clean punch combinations. Knight blasted Caceres with some hard punches as well though. Caceres started the round strong, but Knight really started to comeback as the round progressed, and he also controlled the clinch a little bit. Knight knocked down Caceres with 30 seconds left in the round, and he continued to pressure Caceres until the end of the round. With around 20 seconds left in the round, Knight picked up Caceres and slammed the living shit out of him, he took his back and locked on a rear-naked choke. Caceres was basically saved by the bell. Round one was close for the most part, but Knight CLEARLY won that round with his performance in the final 30 seconds.
     These guys continued to trade brutal wild strikes to start the second round. These guys are both fucking insane. 90 seconds into the second round there was a wild scramble, and Knight took the back of Caceres again, holding him down with a tight body triangle, while he beat him up with punches, while trying to open up Caceres for a rear-naked choke. Knight also slammed some hard elbows into the side of Caceres's head from back control. He locked on the rear-naked choke with 2 minutes left in the round, but Caceres was able to break free, but Knight still had him 100% under control. Knight continued to batter him with heavy elbows, and he locked on another rear-naked choke with a minute left in the round, forcing Caceres to submit. That was a badass performance by Jason Knight, as he absolutely mauled Alex Caceres. That could potentially be fight of the night.

      That first round was fucking crazy, with both guys flying all over the place, throwing wild kicks, spinning shit, superman punches, flip kicks, tornado crescent kicks, all kinds of wild shit, with Rodriguez landing more frequently. Rodriguez also did that flip kick thing, which ended up with a wild scramble on the ground, where Rodriguez teased a leg lock, but let it go in favor of standing up and trading strikes again. Round one goes to Rodriguez.
     Rodriguez came out in the second round like a fucking mad man, throwing WILD shit. Spinning, flipping, kicking, blasting Caceres with hard strikes from all kinds of insane angles. Rodriguez was chasing Caceres all over the place, while constantly throwing violent strikes like some sort of blender on cocaine. Caceres landed a hard left hand halfway through the round, but Rodriguez continued to come forward. Rodriguez clinched, and blasted Caceres with an overhand elbow strike before resetting again. Rodriguez landed a lot of brutal kicks to the body, one right after the other, etc... Caceres is still in the fight, but he's down 2-0 going into the third round.
     Rodriguez came out swinging in the third round, still throwing those wild kicks and some hard punches, but he was slowing down a little bit. Rodriguez won the first half of the round, but Caceres started unloading with some solid boxing in the last half of the round, and really started to make this a fight. They clinched, Rodriguez rolled for a leg lock, there was a wild scramble on the ground, and Caceres ended up on top inside Rodriguez's guard. Caceres dropped some big punches & elbows from the top, and probably did enough with his ground & pound to steal the round. I have this fight 2-1 for Rodriguez going into the fourth round.
     They continued to trade strikes at a wild pace for the duration of the fourth round, with Rodriguez moving forward, and landing more shots overall. They are both clearly slowing down, but considering this fight is taking place at 4,200+ feet, and this is the first 5 round fight they've had, this is solid action. This is a really competitive fight, but I have Rodriguez ahead 3-1 going into the final round.
     Rodriguez came out looking like he found his second wind in the fifth round, throwing hard & fast punches & kicks. Caceres tried to clinch, but Rodriguez broke free and continued to kick the shit out of him. Caceres scored a clinch takedown 90 seconds into the round, but Rodriguez immediately started working for submissions, and turned a scramble into a takedown of his own, and then they scrambled back to their feet with 3 minutes left in the fight. From that point forward, they continued to brawl at a high pace, all the way up until the final buzzer, which was capped off with another flip kick by Rodriguez that landed to the head of Caceres. Fantastic performance by both fighters, and a strong 49-46 victory for Yair Rodriguez in my opinion. The judges were all over the place, with one judge giving the fight to Caceres 49-46, and the other two judges gave the fight to Rodriguez, 48-47, for the split-decision victory.

      Caceres took this fight on 10 days notice, and he dropped Miller in the first 10 seconds or so. They scrambled around for a few seconds, with Miller seemingly in control of the scramble. The fight went to the ground with Miller sort of on Caceres's back, but Caceres ended up on top after another scramble. They stood back up and reset in the center of the cage. Caceres continued to pick apart Miller with some crisp punches & kicks, rocking him again with 2 minutes left in the round. Miller tried to throw a knee from the clinch, and Caceres caught it, taking Miller to the ground. They stood back up and reset again. Caceres continued to chip away at Miller, Miller tried to show some offense of his own, and Caceres took him down again. That was an outstanding round for Alex Caceres. Caceres continued to beat the shit out of Miller in the second round, throwing some really slick punches & kicks, and every time Miller with throw some offense, Caceres would catch it, and throw Miller to the ground. I don't know if I've ever seen Caceres look this crisp. Caceres is dominating Miller so far, possibly even with some 10-8 rounds mixed in there.
     The third round was more of the same, with Caceres mauling Miller, picking him up, slamming him, and just making Miller look like an absolute fool. Miller landed some decent shots, and then clinched with Caceres, took him to the ground, and grabbed his back. Caceres shook him off, and Miller locked on a tight armbar. Caceres somehow escaped, Miller went for a guillotine choke, and Caceres slipped out of that and reset on the feet again. Caceres went back to picking apart Miller on the feet again. Caceres grabbed Miller's back with a minute left in the fight, and Miller rolled out of that, ending up on top. Miller's ground game is insane, but Caceres is a beast tonight. Miller had full mount with 30 seconds left in the fight, Miller slapped on a rear-naked choke, but couldn't quite sink his hooks in, so Caceres was able to survive until the end of the fight. This fight was fucking AWESOME!!! I scored it 29-27 for Alex Caceres, assuming the second round was a 10-8 round, and the final round was 10-9 for Miller. Great fight overall. Now I'd like to see Caceres vs. Penn.

      The first round was a really solid kickboxing match, with both guys landing some decent shots, but for the most part, Caceres was picking apart Fullen with some fun kicks from all kinds of different angles, lots of spinning, hitting a lot of different levels. Caceres even rocked Fullen at one point, and then took him to the ground. Clear round for Alex Caceres. The second round was more of the same, with Caceres continuing to tear up Fullen with wild kicks, solid boxing, good footwork, and a lot of energy. Fullen landed his fair share of shots, but Caceres is ahead, 2-0 going into the final round. The final round was more of the same, with Caceres picking apart Fullen for most of the round, and with 40 seconds left, he rocked him pretty hard, and almost finished him. Really good fight overall, and entertaining victory for Alex Caceres, 30-27 on all scorecards.

      BAM! Rivera won this fight pretty quickly, punching Caceres, knocking him on his ass, and then he jumped on him, and pounced the shit out of him with punches straight to the face, forcing the referee to stop the fight, MAYBE a little bit early, but if the fight WOULDN'T have been stopped, then Rivera would have probably squashed the head of Bruce Leeroy like a watermelon. Really nice quick victory for Rivera, and I'm glad to see him end his losing streak. Unfortunately for Caceres, this makes 3 fights in a row, that he's lost, so he could potentially lose his job for this one. I would like to see him get at least one more shot in the UFC though, because I like Bruce Leeroy.

      This fight was pretty much an ass beating, where Kanehara made his UFC debut, taking Caceres to the ground, and dominating him for the first two rounds. Caceres started to win back some points in the third round, but there was no way he could come back from how badly Kanehara had beat him in the first two rounds, showing great striking skills & great grappling skills. So yeah, I'm really looking forward to seeing Kanehara fight again in the UFC, because Caceres is a tough dude, and he had his ass handed to him.

      Well shoot... That was a pretty awesome fight, but I'm disappointed, because I really wanted this to be Bruce Leeroy's shining moment to break into the official Top 10 rankings. With that being said, Faber looked kind of out of shape, he looked tired after the first round ended, and he continued to look exhausted throughout the fight. Caceres looked to be in great shape, with a little more energy, and throwing wild strikes throughout the 3 rounds. In the end though, Faber's grappling was too much for Caceres to handle, and he was able to lock on the rear-naked choke for the submission victory. Great (very necessary) win for Urijah Faber, and I'm happy for Caceres for at least putting up one hell of a fight.

      This was a pretty good fight. I'm starting to like Alex Caceres quite a bit. He has solid striking skills, throws wild spinning kicks, and his grappling skills are pretty great, at least they're better than Sergio Pettis's grappling skills, considering the fact that he finished this fight by escaping a heel hook, transitioning to a rear-naked choke, and submitting Sergio late in the third round. Other than that, it was a really close fight, I gave the first round to Pettis, and the second round to Caceres.

      This was a pretty decent fight between two guys that I have ranked somewhere in the Top 20 at 135. There were a few really exciting scrambles, solid striking by both guys, good grappling, overall it was just a good fight. It kind of sucks that it went to a split-decision, but I at least agreed with the decision, so congrats to Alex Caceres.

      This was a pretty decent fight. I gave the first round to Kyung Ho Kang for taking down Caceres and controlling the fight, and the second round I was going to give to him for the same reason, but Caceres turned up the heat some, and I ended up giving the second round to him. The third round was all Caceres, with superior punching, and grappling, and in the end, most of the judges agreed, giving the fight to Alex Caceres.

      This was a pretty good little scrap, fought by both guys at a steady pace. Tezuka showed early on, that his wrestling skills were solid, and he looked like he was going to control the fight, until we realized the referee was quick on standing fighters up. Once on the feet, Bruce Leeroy (Alex Caceres), showed that his striking was going to be pretty solid, and on the ground, his submission skills were enough to negate any points Tezuka would have gained from takedowns. In the end, I gave all 3 rounds to Caceres, and so did two of the judges, but one judge was out of his mind and gave the fight to Tezuka, 29-28. Doesn't really matter though, because Caceres walks away with the split-decision victory.

      That was a pretty good fight. Damacio Page looked great in this fight, kicking Caceres's ass for most of the first round, and it looked like the second round was going to be more of the same, as Page picked up Caceres and slammed him, but that momentum didn't last long, when he fell into a triangle choke, and was forced to tap. Caceres is awesome, and Page looked pretty great in this fight too.

Decision (Split)
15:00
      This fight was pretty fucked up overall. To give it a quick summary, it started with a BRUTAL kick to the groin, delivered by Caceres, so the fight was stopped for several minutes. Caceres then got kicked in the head, in a "head kick knock out" sort of way, falling flat to the ground, but recovered almost instantly, so the fight continued, and by the end of that round, Caceres was kicking some more ass. The rest of the fight basically consisted of Caceres showing superior striking, and WAAAAAY better Jiu-Jitsu skills than Figueroa, with countless submission attempts, and an absolutely dominating performance. The problem is, he also kicked Figueroa in the nuts a SECOND time, which stopped the fight for another 5 minutes or so, where Herb Dean took TWO POINTS away from Caceres. So the fact that Alex Caceres lost via SPLIT decision, on a fight where he had TWO POINTS taken from nut shots, that pretty much means he dominated this fight, and if it wouldn't have been for those accidental groin kicks, he would have clearly won this fight, maybe even 30-26 in favor of Caceres.

      This fight was pretty great! Caceres generally throws wild shit at his opponents, but this time, he was LANDING all of that wild shit, and he kept the fight at a high pace, constantly moving forward in all 3 rounds, and in the third round, he unloaded a Jiu-Jitsu clinic on Escovedo, and Escovedo was able to do a good job with defending all of the submission attempts, but in the end, Caceres clearly won all 3 rounds, and this fight was exciting from start to finish.

      Holy shit! That fight was awesome. The first round was nonstop action, with Caceres throwing all kinds of wild & crazy shit, and Hettes showing some amazing Jiu-Jitsu skills. The second round started, Hettes unleashed a brilliant Judo throw, slamming Caceres to the ground, and then it turned into an insane grappling contest, where Hettes was eventually able to get on his back, and he finished Caceres with a rear-naked choke. AWESOME fight by both fighters.

      This fight was fucking nuts. Caceres came out like a bat out of hell, throwing wild punches, and was taken down by Semerzier. From that point forward, Semerzier completely dominated him on the ground with crazy grappling skills, eventually mounting his back, riding him like a bull, and eventually slamming his head with elbows, he locked on the rear-naked choke, and forced Caceres to submit. Awesome UFC debut by Mackens Semerzier.

      Caceres danced around the outside trying to keep Johnson at bay, but it only took 30 seconds for Johnson to break through Caceres's kicks, to take him down near the fence. Caceres kicked him off and stood back up a few seconds later. Johnson continued to fire big punches at him, knocking his mouthpiece across the cage with a clean left hand. Johnson threw some more punches and then violently threw Caceres to the ground. They stood back up, and Johnson continued to bash Caceres with violent punches & knees until the end of the round, while taking a few breaks to press him into the fence while clinching. Round one clearly goes to Michael Johnson.
     Johnson took Caceres down again 20 seconds into the second round, landing in side control, where he pounded on him with short elbows. Caceres struggled to pull guard, but Johnson did a good job staying just outside of reach, at least for a minute or so. They eventually stood back up, traded some wild strikes, and then Johnson grabbed Caceres's back from a scramble, but Caceres threw him off, tried to mount him, but Johnson scrambled back to his feet. Johnson took Caceres down again, and finished out the round on top beating up Caceres with some basic ground & pound. I scored this fight 20-18 for Johnson, and all 3 judges agreed, giving the fight to Johnson via unanimous decision after two hard fought rounds.

     Caceres smashed Lentz with some heavy kicks to start the opening round of this fight. Lentz tried to fire back, but his standup skills don't look nearly as refined as Bruce Leeroy's. Lentz clinched 45 seconds into the round, and pressed Caceres against the fence, mostly just buying himself some time. Caceres slapped on a guillotine choke with 2 minutes left in the round, but Lentz slipped out and ended up on top. Caceres quickly worked his way back to his feet, and they scrambled around for a few seconds, before ending up back in the clinch. They traded some more strikes, and then the round ended with an amazing throw from Lentz. That's a hard round to score. I was going to give it to Caceres, but Lentz might have stolen the round with that throw.
     They traded a few strikes to start the second round, there was some heavy clinching with Lentz pressing Caceres into the fence, and then Caceres yanked Lentz to the ground while trying to secure back control, but Lentz spun around, ending up on top in half mount around 90 seconds into the round. Caceres quickly secured full guard, he slapped on a slick triangle choke, Lentz tried to slam his way out of it, but Caceres just locked it on even tighter. Lentz threw some punches, they scrambled around for a few seconds, and Lentz was forced to submit halfway through the second round. That was another fantastic performance by Alex Caceres.

      These guys both came out throwing a couple of violent strikes, and then Caceres grabbed Barrow, they sort of went to the ground, and then popped back up immediately. They continued to trade some violent strikes, with Barrow pressing Caceres against the fence, looking for a takedown. Caceres showed some solid balance, eventually taking Barrow to the ground from the clinch, but only for a second. They stood back up, Barrow continued to look for a takedown, Caceres grabbed his back in a wild scramble, they sat up, Caceres locked on the rear-naked choke, Barrow tried to fight out of it, so Caceres locked it on tighter, and Barrow was forced to submit. That was an awesome performance by Bruce Leeroy.
