Submission (Guillotine Choke)
      These guys traded a few random strikes, Alencar tried to take Lins down against the fence, Lins caught him in a sloppy looking guillotine choke, and Alencar quickly tapped out, 58 seconds into the first round. That was a nice quick finish for Philipe Lins as he moves on to the next round of tonight's tournament without spending much energy at all.
      Kyle dropped Alencar 30 seconds into the opening round, but he popped right back up, clinched, and then took down Kyle 30 seconds later. Alencar passed to mount, unloaded with some big punches, Kyle scrambled to pull guard, and Alencar continued to throw punches on the ground. Alencar locked on an arm-triangle choke, and it looked pretty tight, but Kyle didn't seem phased at all. Alencar passed to mount again, threw some big punches, and then Kyle finally swept him with 45 seconds left in the round, but he wasn't able to do anything noteworthy before the end of the round. Round one clearly goes to Alencar.
     Alencar scored a takedown to start the second round, he pinned Kyle against the fence, and then continued to beat him up with short punches from full mount. Kyle swept him halfway through the round, and started working some ground & pound from half mount. The referee reset them with 90 seconds left in the round. Alencar then took down Kyle, and finished the final minute of the round back in full mount, throwing punches at Kyle's face. Alencar is ahead 20-18 going into the final round, as Kyle is giving up mount way too frequently.
     The final round was more of the same, with Alencar beating up Kyle with some tired looking punches for about 45 seconds, and then he took him down again, and landed back in full mount. I've never seen anyone willing to give up full mount this easily, over and over again. In the end, this was a clear cut 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Caio Alencar.
KO (Punch)
      These guys traded some big heavyweight punches & kicks, and then Alencar clinched, and took Tiller to the ground. Alencar smothered Tiller for a couple of minutes, without much action happening on the ground. The referee reset them with 90 seconds left in the round, and Tiller knocked Alencar the fuck out with the first punch he threw after they reset. That was a fantastic highlight reel knockout to finish an otherwise lackluster lay & pray effort from Alencar. I'm really glad the referee stood them up when he did.
      These guys circled around each other for the first half of the opening round, without any real offense being thrown, until Alencar kicked Ivanov in the dick. After a brief timeout, the fight continued, and Ivanov turned it up a notch, throwing a few punches, while pressuring Alencar to back up for the last half of the round. That was a pretty boring first round, but I'm going to give it to Blagoy Ivanov.
      The second round was another round of Ivanov moving forward, throwing punches, not really doing much damage, but he was at least being somewhat aggressive, and then Alencar poked him in the eye late in the round, as he was trying to push him away to create some distance. I have Ivanov ahead 20-18, going into the final round.
      The final round was another round of Ivanov moving forward, winging some big punches, and then backing off, winging some big punches, and then backing off. Alencar fired back with a handful of decent punches, but for the most part, he was just outmatched in this fight, even though Ivanov wasn't really doing much of anything significant either. In the end, this was a 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Blagoy Ivanov.
KO (Punches)
      These guys both came out swinging, but Alencar had a significant reach advantage, so he was clipping Rosholt repeatedly, while Rosholt couldn't get close enough to do any damage. It was only a matter of 90 seconds or so before Alencar dropped Rosholt, and put him away in the first round. that was a fantastic WSOF debut for Caio Alencar, as he takes out the UFC veteran in under 90 seconds. I really thought Rosholt would look decent fighting against guys outside of the UFC, but nope. Rosholt looked out of shape, and got his ass kicked.
