      I didn't think either fighter really stood out as a clear winner after the first round, with both guys landing some hard shots, and both guys moving forward for the duration of the round. Mizugaki rocked Roop early in the second round. From there, Roop started to look like he was getting tired, and Mizugaki was kind of beating him up inside the clinch. This was a decently competitive fight, but it wasn't as exciting as I would have liked it to be. Roop put all of his body weight on Mizugaki to start the third round, pressing him against the cage in the clinch, without really doing anything at all, other than smothering Mizugaki. Mizugaki blasted him with some hard punches at some point in the round. In the end, I gave the fight to Mizugaki, it could have either been 30-27, or 29-28. Either way, Mizugaki wins this fight, in a somewhat lackluster performance for both fighters.

      Fucking BOOOOOOM! That was an awesome knockout. The fight started off pretty scrappy, both guys showing solid striking skills, it looked like Roop was going to be able to overpower Font up against the fence, but after a minute or so of back & forth action, Font landed a GIGANTIC right hand, followed by a shoulder thrust, that caused Roop to collapse like a sack of beans, just CRUMBLING to the ground in cinematic fashion. That was a fucking AMAZING UFC debut for Rob Font, and this leaves his current winning streak at 10 fights, which is pretty fucking impressive. I can't wait to see this dude fight again.

      This was another really competitive fight, with George Roop taking Kimura to the ground in rounds 1 & 3, and beating him up with big punches & elbows. The second round had Kimura on the attack, where he was able to get on Roop's back, in an effort to choke him out, so after the second round, I had the fight all tied up. BUT! Yeah, Roop destroyed him in the third round, so George Roop was the clear winner in this fight, and all 3 judges agreed.

      Yeah! Two guys that I have rated in the Top 10 in this division, fought their balls off, and after a VERY close first round, Francisco Rivera finished that shit in the second round, after getting kicked in the nuts, by throwing a thousand bombs at Roop's face, knocking him to the ground like a wobbling worm. Francisco Rivera is fucking LEGIT man, and this should put him a few notches closer to a title shot, since I think this makes 4 wins in a row, eh?

      Well, that was odd... Brian Bowles beat the living shit out of Roop in the first round, nearly finishing him, and pretty much draining Roop's will to live. The problem is, Bowles was exhausted after the first round, so Roop jumped on him in the second round, and returned the favor, kicking the living shit out of Bowles, until the referee was forced to stop the fight, because Bowles was getting beat up too badly. Weird fight, I really thought after the first round's results, the entire fight was in the hands of Bowles. Awesome comeback for Roop!

     This fight was ok. Kind of a pointless fight, which I guess is why it was on Facebook for free. In the end, the fight went all 3 rounds, Duran looked decent in the first round, by taking down Roop, but once they were on the ground, Roop did more damage from his back, by throwing elbows at the top of Duran's head. The second round was mostly Roop, taking down Duran, and trying to lock on a rear-naked choke. The third round was kind of close, but I gave it to Roop. I doubt anybody really cared about this fight. Roop wins via unanimous decision.

      That was an awesome ending to an otherwise pretty good fight. I was going to give the first round to Roop, for his long reach, and he seemed to be landing more shots, until Swanson unleashed a beautiful Judo throw, slamming Roop to the ground, and he finished that round beating up Roop on the ground. The second round looked pretty similar, until Swanson landed a HUGE punch to the face of Roop, knocking his mouth piece clear across the octagon, and Swanson finished him off with a series of punches on the ground. Cub Swanson looked awesome by the time this fight was over. Really entertaining finish.

      This was a pretty close fight for the most part. Hatsu Hioki was clearly the better wrestler, Roop was probably the better striker, and there was decent back & forth action, but this fight wasn't that exciting for me. In the end, I scored the fight as a tie, the judges gave it to Hioki by split-decision, and the crowd gave that a big boo, I personally cheered though, because if either of them should have won, I'd say it was probably Hioki.

KO (Punch to the Body)

      This was a pretty decent fight, with Roop winning both of the first two rounds with his grappling & striking, as Grispi slowly started to fade throughout the fight. The third round basically had Roop throwing nonstop strikes at Grispi, and eventually he collapsed due to a punch to the stomach, and Roop walks away with the KO victory. Good show by Roop.

      Talk about an ass whoopin'... George Roop looked like he was on stilts the entire fight, and Hominick was hunting for his head. Punch after punch landed, Hominick looked fast & mean, and he ended the fight in a little over one minute, which means they didn't really leave a lot of room for commentary. Hominick is now scheduled to get a shot at Jose Aldo's 135 pound title.

      Roop basically beat the crap out of Jung in this fight, picking him apart with punches & kicks for the duration of the first round, as Jung basically just stood there and absorbed the strikes. Roop continued to pick apart Jung in the second round, he landed a hard kick to the head, and then Jung started to strike back, while constantly moving forward. Jung really wasn't very active in this fight though. Around 1:30 into the second round, Roop landed an awesome left high kick, knocking Jung the fuck out. That was a HUGE win for George Roop.

Draw (Split)
15:00
      Garcia started the fight working some leg kicks, Roop took him to the ground, Garcia went for a guillotine, and Roop beat him up for a little bit. The first round goes to Roop for top control, but it could have gone to Garcia for the guillotine attempt. Garcia landed some great kicks in the second round, but once agaon, Roop took him down and controlled him, and beat him up on the ground, and the referee stood them up for no reason (thought he saw an illegal knee). I scored the second round for Roop, but the fight was still close. The final round was a good scrap, and the referee took a point from Roop for a groin shot, but I feel like he should have gotten more of a warning than that, so i'm not going to take the point from him. The final round was a decent scrap, that could have maybe gone either way, but I guess I'll give it to Garcia due to the low blow. Still, I think Roop won this fight, 29-28, and one of the judges agreed, one thought Garcia won, and the final judge declared the fight a draw, which lead to what they called a "Split Draw" I guess. I'm going to give Roop the victory points though, for controlling a larger portion of the fight.

      This fight mostly took place standing, with Wineland rocking Roop in the first minute of the first round. Roop spent most of the fight throwing those awkward Rooping Looping punches, landing a few times, but for the most part, Wineland did a good job avoiding Roop's strikes, while countering with harder punches of his own. In the end, this fight turned out to be relatively one-sided, with a 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Eddie Wineland.

      This was a pretty amazing display of high level Jiu-Jitsu skills by George Sotiropoulos. He countered everything Roop threw at him with takedowns, and AMAZING grappling skills, his wrestling / transitions were perfect, his Jiu-Jitsu was perfect. George Sotiropoulos is an amazing badass, and he absolutely schooled Roop for 2 rounds, until eventually locking on the Kimura in the second round for the quick submission victory.

     During the first 2 rounds, I thought I was giving the fight to Kaplan (more in the 2nd than the 1st), and the 3rd round easily went to Roop. Kaplan had better wrestling, Roop had better striking. It all came down to the end of the fight, and Roop had more fire in him, so he walked away with the split-decision victory. In my opinion, neither one of these guys should fight in the UFC again.

      This fight was pretty decent, but I ended up giving all 3 rounds to Shane Nelson, because every time I looked at the screen, it looked like Nelson was going for another submission, and he even locked on a heelhook at the very end of the fight, where Roop had to be saved by the clock. So yeah, from the angle I was watching the fight, I thought it was a pretty clear victory for Shane Nelson, but one of the judges gave the fight to Roop, which is fine, I'm just not sure how he would give two rounds to Roop in this one. Still, pretty good fight overall.

Submission (Kimura)

      Nover came out looking to throw bombs, he overwhelmed Roop early, taking him to the ground against the fence, Roop swept him, Nover grabbed for a Kimura, and calmly waited for an opening, Roop tried to press him into the fence, but Nover refused to let go of his arm, and around the 90 second mark, he finally was able to break his arm look, Nover cranked on the Kimura, and nearly removed Roop's arm. That was a fantastic finish for Phillipe Nover as he moves on to the tournament final to face Efrain Escudero.

      These guys started this fight with a great big hug. They traded punches for 90 seconds or so, and then Roop shot in for a takedown, and beat the shit out of Polakowski with some heavy punches from inside his guard. Roop continued to beat the shit out of Polakowski, until he finally tried to take Polakowski's back with 2 minutes left in the round, and Polakowski quickly spun into his guard, resulting in Polakowski finally securing top control. He beat up Roop until the end of the round with some decent punches. That round could go either way, since Roop won the first 3 minutes, and Polakowski won the last 2 minutes.
      They both came out swinging to start the second round. Roop scored a slick takedown 2 minutes into the round, and he went back to bashing Polakowski with hard elbows & punches from a variety of top positions. He took Polakowski's back with 2 minutes left in the round, and Polakowski wasn't able to escape this time, so Roop just beat him up from back control for the rest of the round, while trying to open him up for a possible submission. In the end, the first round could have gone either way, and the second round was 100% Roop, so I scored the fight for Roop, and all 3 judges agreed, giving him the unanimous decision victory after two rounds.

      These guys both came out winging wild punches & kicks, and then Delgado pulled guard with a tight guillotine choke attempt, but Roop was able to pull his head free, and he worked some ground & pound in order to win the first round. The final round was a decent round of striking, leading to a unanimous decision victory for George Roop.
