TKO (Punches & Elbows)
      The first round had both guys trading hard strikes. Stephens was mostly throwing big punches, but Choi did a good job controlling the distance, he also landed some clean elbows, and some hard leg kicks. That first round was close, but I'm scoring it slightly in favo of Doo Ho Choi.
      Choi started the second round with a kick to the jaw of Stephens, so Stephens fired back with a hard kick of his own, they both unloaded on each other, and they both got rocked a little bit, but that didn't stop them from coming forward at each other. Stephens landed with a few clean jabs that bloodied the nose area of Choi, and it seemed to really bother him, because he immediately started to back up. Stephens then dropped him with a big punch, and then unloaded with some diving elbows on the ground, forcing the referee to step in to stop the fight. That was a huge win for Jeremy Stephens, and a disappointing return for Choi, as he gets his second loss in a row, after a 13 month layoff.
      Choi threw a hard punch, and then followed it up with some heavy knees from the clinch. Swanson sort of shot for a takedown, and Choi easily stuffed the shot. Swanson landed a heavy right hand one minute into the round, but for the most part, Swanson looked like a normal dude, fighting a giant scorpion. They both landed some really clean strikes, and then Choi clinched, pressing Swanson against the fence. Swanson took control of the clinch, threw some heavy knees to Choi's thighs, and then they split up. Swanson landed some really big strikes in that round, but it's hard not to feel like Choi is winning this fight after the way the first round went. His striking is insanely accurate, and the power behind it is shocking. Round one goes to Choi.
     Swanson came out looking really aggressive in the second round, as he blasted Choi with some really hard shots, and showed some solid movement. Swanson rocked the shit out of Choi, he nearly knocked him the fuck out, Choi just kind of smiled, and then unloaded on Swanson, Swanson looked like he was about to get knocked the fuck out, and then Swanson threw Choi to the ground to save himself, and he beat up Choi with some shots on the ground, before letting him back up with 2 minutes left in the round. Swanson blasted Choi with a cartwheel kick, he taunted him, and then punched him in the face some more. Choi stuck to his crisp striking, and then Swanson unloaded with some INSANELY violent punches, rocking Choi back into the fence. That round was fucking insane, but I'm scoring that round for Swanson. I have this fight all tied up going into the third round. This fight is fucking insane!!!
     Swanson came out and cracked Choi in the opening seconds of the final round with a massive overhand right. There was some sloppy clinching going on from both guys, Choi landed some punches, took down Swanson, and Swanson reversed him, landing inside Choi's guard. Choi nearly swept him, but Swanson stayed on top. Choi landed some elbows from his back, to the top of Swanson's head. Swanson tried to pass Choi's guard, and landed some heavy punches, and then they stood back up. Swanson continued to unload with heavy punches, he rocked the shit out of Choi again, and then he threw him to the ground with a headlock hip toss. They scrambled back to their feet, and clinched some more. Swanson continued to drive heavy punches into the head of Choi, Choi clinched, they went to the ground, Swanson ended up on top and stood back up. Choi tried to trip Swanson from the clinch, but he couldn't get him down. The final minute of the round had both guys throwing all they had, and Swanson ended up beating the shit out of Choi, knocking him down in the final seconds, and he finished the round on top, pounding on Choi's head with punches. This might have been the fight of the year, and in my opinion, it should be a 29-28 decision for Swanson. All 3 judges agreed, giving the fight to Cub Swanson for the unanimous decision victory. Both of these guys are fucking insane, and that fight was easily one of the best fights I've ever seen.
KO (Punches)
      Tavares shot for a takedown early, Choi clipped him with a flying knee, and Tavares pinned him against the cage. Choi stood up, and Tavares sucked him back down again. Choi finally got back to his feet 90 seconds into the round. Tavares took him down again as soon as I said that. Choi got back to his feet halfway through the round. He then dropped Tavares with a right hand, and the fight was stopped. That shit was kind of funny. Choi got the shit wrestled out of him for half a round, and then finished the fight with a single punch. Congrats to Choi for going 3-0 in the UFC so far. This also brings him to 11 knockouts out of 14 wins. Doo Ho Choi is a badass.
KO (Punches)
      Wow... This fight was fucking wild. Both guys were basically swinging for the fences, looking for the early stoppage, Choi rocked Sicilia a few times, but Sicilia recovered, blasted Choi with some hard shots, and then Sicilia got knocked the fuck out with another barrage of punches. That was a pretty amazing 1:33 of nonstop brawling. Great fight by both fighters, and probably the biggest win of Choi's career so far. I'm going to REALLY start taking this guy seriously from now on. I still can't quite figure out where Sicilia fits into the grande scheme of things though. He's lost half of his fights (5 out of 10) since coming to the UFC in 2012, but he also earned 3 wins by KO, so he's definitely an exciting fighter, but I'm not feeling very confident that he's ever really going to break into the Top 10 at 145. Any chance he could drop to 135? Maybe? I really have no idea. But yeah, Doo Ho Choi is on another level, and I see him climbing the ladder REALLY quickly from this point forward.
TKO (Punches)
     That was a nice debut by a guy I've never heard of. Juan Manuel Puig isn't exactly a showstopper from what I've seen, but Choi came in, punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground, and then started firing shots at his face on the ground, with a fist like a rifle, finishing the fight in under 20 seconds. I'll definitely be looking forward to his next fight in the UFC.
Decision (Split)
      The first round was a close clinching round, where neither fighter really did much of anything to stand out. The second round had Usada unloading some decent ground & pound, and controlling Choi from the clinch. Choi rocked Usuda at the end of the final round, knocking him to the ground. The second round was more action packed than the first, but I still feel like this fight is close to being a draw so far. I really have no idea who is ahead at this point, going into the final round. They continued to clinch a lot in the third round, until Usuda threw a knee to Choi's groin. Once the fight started back up after the break, they both came out looking more aggressive. Usuda was beating up Choi with punches to the body, the referee broke them up, and Usuda took Choi to the ground. They stood back up, and continued to clinch. They spent the final 30 seconds of the fight striking wildly with each other, with Choi probably dishing out more damage. In the end, this fight could have gone either way, and I'd probably score it SLIGHTLY in favor of Usuda. Two of the judges disagreed, giving the fight to Choi, via split-decision.
