      Rodriguez threw some punches, Jackson ducked under them, took Rodriguez down, and secured back control with a body triangle. He eventually slapped on a rear-naked choke, and finished the fight by submission in the first round. That was a solid finish by Damon Jackson, against a guy I've never heard of before.

      These guys traded a few random strikes in the first round, with Jackson using his reach to his advantage, keeping Aguilar at bay for the most part, while he picked him apart with jabs & long kicks. Aguilar was still able to dive in and land a few decent shots though. Aguilar dropped Jackson with a clean left hand with 90 seconds left in the round, but he let him stand back up. He then blasted Jackson with a big right hand, Jackson shot for a takedown, but he was nowhere near Aguilar when he moved toward him, so Aguilar was able to easily step to the side to avoid the shot. Jackson started out strong, but by the end of the round, Aguilar was making Jackson look somewhat foolish. Round one goes to Aguilar.
     Aguilar worked his jab to start the second round, and then Jackson broke out the Goldberg Spear, as he blasted Aguilar to the canvas against the fence. Jackson worked some decent ground & pound, and then Aguilar scrambled back to his feet 2 minutes into the round to reset. Jackson quickly clinched, and then brought Aguilar to the ground again, where he was able to pin him down with half mount, where he worked some more ground & pound until the end of the round. Jackson went for a guillotine choke with 45 seconds left, but he wasn't able to finish it. I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     They both traded some heavy punches to start the third round, Jackson sort of rocked Aguilar, clinched, and then took him down against the fence. Jackson locked on another tight guillotine choke, but Aguilar was able to pop his head free 90 seconds into the round, and then he passed to full mount. Aguilar punched Jackson in the face repeatedly while pinning him against the fence. They stood back up halfway through the round and circled around each other. They both looked pretty tired at this point. Jackson rushed in with some sloppy strikes, but Aguilar just moved to the side to avoid punches & kicks. Aguilar threw a few more jabs, followed by a pair of hard right hands. He then knocked Jackson the fuck out with a MASSIVE right hand, and then dropped another bomb on him from the sky before the referee was able to stop the fight. That was a fantastic finish by Kevin Aguilar, as he becomes the LFA Featherweight Champion.

      These guys traded some hard punches & kicks to start this fight, and then Jackson caught a kick and took Cheeks to the ground 20 seconds into the opening round. Jackson beat up Cheeks on the ground a little bit, before taking back control, where he tried to open him up for a rear-naked choke against the fence. Cheeks finally spun out of that and stood up with a minute left in the round, but he wasn't able to do enough to steal the round. Round one goes to Damon Jackson, based on a couple of takedowns and his rear-naked choke attempts.
     They traded some random strikes to start the second round, Jackson dropped Cheeks with a KO worthy right hand, but Cheeks somehow popped back up immediately, so Jackson kicked him in the head, punched him a few more times, clinched, and took him down against the fence, landing in full mount this time. He pounded on Cheeks' head, took his back, locked on a rear-naked choke, and finished the fight around the 90 second mark of the second round. That was a fantastic performance by Damon Jackson.

      Damon Jackson looked aggressive at the start of this fight, throwing nice punch & kick combinations, really taking the fight to Makashvili, but it slowed down halfway through the round, when Jackson clinched with Makashvili against the cage, which ended in a stalemate. The referee eventually broke them apart. Makashvili landed some nice punches, and Jackson shot for another takedown, ending in another stalemate clinch against the cage. That round could have maybe gone either way, but I'm giving it to Jackson, based on pressure, and some solid striking earlier in the round. The second round was more of the same, with Jackson landing some solid shots, and clearly applying more pressure with some clinching against the cage, but he wasn't able to get anywhere close to securing a takedown, so I guess Makashvili deserves some credit for staying on his feet, but Jackson was still in control for most of the first two rounds. I have Jackson ahead 2-0 going into the final round. The final round was the same story, with Jackson landing some nice combinations, and then they clinched against the cage, with Jackson in control. Makashvili secured a takedown randomly, but Jackson stopped him with a guillotine attempt, and then they stood back up. After some more clinching, Makashvili secured another takedown, but Jackson stood right back up. Jackson was still kind of grounded, and Makashvili landed a knee to Jackson's head, so the referee broke them up, and warned Makashvili. With one minute left in the fight, they started back up, and Makashvili poked the shit out of Jackson's eye. This time, the referee took a point from Makashvili, which I'm actually pretty happy with, since I feel like combining fouls, especially when they're one right after the other, isn't a bad idea at all. When the fight started back up, Jackson brought the fight to Makashvili for the final minute of the fight, which in my opinion won the fight for Jackson. I would personally score this fight 30-26 for Jackson, but I can easily see this fight being declared a draw as well, so... This one really is up to the judges. One judge gave the fight to Jackson, 29-27, and the other two judges declared the fight a draw, which means that it's officially a majority draw.

Submission (Triangle Choke)

      That was a REALLY nice submission finish. Jackson looked decent in this fight, taking the fight to the ground a couple of times, and he even hit a nice knee to the head of Rony Jason, but Jason had his hand down on the ground, so the referee stopped the fight and gave Jackson a warning for throwing a knee to a "downed opponent", which I FUCKING HATE THAT RULE. It's so fucking stupid. Once the fight started back up though, Jackson took him down again, and got caught in a tight triangle/armbar, where they rolled around for a few seconds, as Jason continued to tighten the hold, eventually ditching the arm for the straight triangle, and he finished the fight via submission. Nice win for Rony "Jason" Bezerra.

      This fight was pretty ok I guess. Yancy Medeiros pretty much beat up Jackson in the first round, just throwing better strikes, and controlling the pace of the fight. The second round looked like it'd be more of the same, until Medeiros locked on a guillotine choke, Jackson tried to sort of rotate out of it, Medeiros tightened his grip, and put Jackson to sleep a half second after Jackson tapped out to the choke. Awesome submission victory for Yancy Medeiros.

      Alright... So Keith Miner doesn't have a right hand... He threw a punch with it though, and Jackson ducked under it, and took him to the ground with ease. Jackson immediately got side control. From there, he cut open the head of Miner with some elbows. He continued to pound on him, forcing him against the cage, before posturing up, and exploding on him with some big right hands, forcing the referee to stop the fight. Solid performance by Damon Jackson, against the one-handed man.

      Jackson basically wrestled the shit out of Church in the first round, taking him down multiple times, and winning the majority of the scrambles. The second round was another solid wrestling match, with both guys scrambling around, looking for submissions, and just when it looked like Church might have Jackson in trouble with an arm lock, Jackson flipped him over, grabbed his back, and finished him with the rear-naked choke. Solid show of grappling skills by Damon Jackson.
