      These guys traded a few random strikes, they clinched 90 seconds into the round, and Mir threw Ayala to the ground, landing on top in half mount near the fence. Mir threw some short punches to Ayala's body before working to setup some arm locks from side control. Ayala stood back up with a minute left in the round. Mir scored another takedown with 30 seconds left in the round, securing the first round for Frank Mir.
      Mir started the second round with another quick takedown, but he wasn't able to hold Ayala down for very long. They stood back up, battled inside the clinch for a while, and Mir's left eye was bleeding all over the place. Mir struggled for another takedown attempt, and Ayala sprawled over the top of him, and unloaded with some big punches. They clinched, and Ayala beat the shit out of Mir while keeping him pressed against the fence. Mir blasted him with a big knee, unloaded with some wild punches, and then went for another takedown, but Ayala stuffed the shot again, and took control of the clinch with 90 seconds left in the round. Ayala landed a LOT of punches, Mir's face was a bloody mess, Mir was clearly having issues, and he tapped out, apparently due to a broken mouth. That's a hell of a win for Javy Ayala.

      Ayala rushed forward to start this fight, threw a few big punches, and then they ended up in a clinching stalemate. They eventually split up, Kongo landed a big leg kick, Ayala rushed forward again, Kongo dropped him with one punch, and then finished the fight with a series of punches on the ground, where Ayala was already out cold. That was a nice win for Cheick Kongo. It was also a terrible gameplan for Ayala.

      Nelson is making his Bellator debut, and Ayala welcomed him into the cage by firing bombs at him at a rapid pace to start the opening round, as he battered him while chasing him across the cage repeatedly. Nelson shot for a takedown halfway through the round, and he dumped Ayala to the ground with 2 minutes left in the round. Nelson pounded on Ayala with some punches & elbows, while trying to open him up for a Kimura. Nelson passed to full mount with 45 seconds left in the round. Nelson went for an Americana, and Ayala exploded back to his feet, and unloaded on Nelson with some wild strikes to finish the round. That round was a very even round, with Ayala doing far more damage on the feet, and Nelson held top control for a solid 90 seconds or so. I'm going to go against the grain, and give that round to Ayala, but I'm assuming most people will score that round or Nelson.
     Nelson took Ayala down in the second round, smothered him, took his back, tried to setup a rear-naked choke, and Ayala scrambled back to his feet, and threw some big punches, and then took down Nelson. They stood back up, traded some bombs, Nelson blasted Ayala with a series of hard uppercuts, and then dumped him to the ground again. Nelson finished the round strong, by dropping a series of heavy elbows. These guys are both tough as hell, but round two clearly goes to Nelson. I gave the first round to Ayala though, so I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     Ayala came out swinging in the final round, he clipped Nelson, and then blasted him with a flying knee, and they both laughed at each other. They continued to brawl at a decent pace, and then Nelson shot in for a powerful takedown, dumping Ayala against the fence around the 90 second mark of the final round. Nelson worked some ground & pound by throwing some short punches, and then he tried to setup another Americana, and Ayala tried to kick off the fence to get out from under Nelson, but Nelson was able to keep him pinned. Nelson opened up in the final 15 seconds with some heavy punches to the head of Ayala, but he still wasn't able to finish him. These guys are both tough as hell, and that was a fantastic battle for Roy Nelson's Bellator debut. I'm finally excited to see Roy Nelson fight again, after losing some interest over the past few years. Congratulations to Nelson for the hard fought unanimous decision victory.

      Kharitonov threw a punch, and Ayala ducked down, looking for a takedown, which Kharitonov easily stuffed. Ayala then threw a big right hand, and knocked Kharitonov the fuck out with a shot that sounded like a baseball bat hitting a watermelon, just 16 seconds into the opening round. That was probably the biggest win of Ayala's career, knocking out a Pride & K-1 Legend in under 20 seconds. That punch was fucking insane.

     Ayala came out, threw a big punch, and then immediately went for a single leg takedown against the cage, but Seumanutafa did a good job staying on his feet, so the fight just turned into a clinch fest for a minute or so, before Ayala was finally able to kick Seumanutafa's leg out from underneath him, which allowed him to take him to the ground, and grab his back. He eventually picked him up from behind, and slammed him to the ground again. Ayala was going full beast mode there for a while. The referee was threatening to stop the fight since Seumanutafa was getting pounded on, but he rolled over onto his back to try to work for a Kimura, which slowed Ayala down a little bit. Ayala continued to pound on Seumanutafa's body though. Ayala eventually climbed onto Seumanutafa's back again, and continued to punch him in the face, but he got too high, so Seumanutafa slipped out the back door, and Ayala grabbed an armbar on the way out, and it looked like he was cranking pretty hard, but Seumanutafa looked calm, and was able to escape with 10 seconds left in the round, which he used to mount Ayala, and blast him with some hard elbows. Solid first round, but I'm going to have to score that one for Ayala.
     Ayala looked tired for a second with the second round started, but then out of nowhere, he shot for a flying knee, and blasted Seumanutafa to the ground, where he got on top again, and continued to pound on him. Ayala is kind of a scary heavyweight. Seumanutafa went for another Kimura, but he only had half guard, so Ayala was able to escape. During a scramble though, Seumanutafa ended up on top, where he was able to land a lot of punches to the face of Ayala. The stood up, Ayala looked exhausted, and Seumanutafa was able to trip him to the ground, allowing Seumanutafa to get the full mount, where he blasted Ayala with some more heavy elbows, cutting open Ayala's right eye. Seumanutafa continued to dominate Ayala, keeping that full mount, blasting Ayala with heavy punches & elbows, forcing the referee to stop the fight. That was an AWESOME comeback victory for Carl Seumanutafa.

      Hahaha... That shit was funny... Huddleston knocked Ayala on his ass with a big punch, he jumped on him, Ayala was looking for a leg lock, Huddleston hopped onto his back, going for the rear-naked choke, Ayala dove forward to escape, planting himself face first on the canvas, allowing Huddleston to sink in the choke even deeper, as Ayala had rocked himself, and then Ayala was forced to tapout. Really fun performance for Alex "The Shaved Gorilla" Huddleston.

      Ayala moved forward, immediately clinched with Butler up against the cage, Ayala slammed BUtler, locked on a rear-naked choke, and forced the submission in just over one minute of the first round. That was a pretty huge win for Ayala, putting an end to his undefeated career up until this point. To be honest, I was a little shocked to see Butler get manhandled like that, considering he normally seems to manhandle everyone else.

      The first round started with Ayala pressing Prindle against the cage in the clinch. Ayala secured a takedown 90 seconds into the round. He moved into full mount, and tried to land some ground & pound, but he wasn't able to keep his balance very well, so he eventually slipped back into half guard, and then landed some shots. Ayala clearly won the first round. The second round started with another takedown, and as Ayala forced Prindle against the cage on the ground, he was able to beat the shit out of him with big punches for most of the round. Prindle landed a few decent shots in the final round, but was quickly taken to the ground again. From there, Ayala pounded on him while looking for an Americana, and eventually Prindle had the fight stopped, because his right eye was completely swollen shut, and it looked like his skull was ripped to pieces. The doctor checked out his eyes, Prindle clearly couldn't see out of his right eye, so the fight was stopped. Solid win for Javy Ayala. Prindle tried to call it an eye poke, but really, he just got his ass beat.

      Here we have a couple of big heavyweights, throwing big sloppy shots at each other for 5 minutes. Ayala looked like he was having some fun, smiling, throwing flying knees, and some other wacky shit, and Santos looked like he was all business. These guys both looked exhausted halfway through the first round, but they kept throwing bombs. Santos rocked Ayala late in the round, and it looked like he had him in some serious trouble up against the cage with about a minute left in the round. Ayala circled out of that, got the clinch, landed some knees, and then backed away again. With 10 seconds left in the round, Ayala unloaded on Santos's face, with some big heavy punches, and right as the bell sounded, Santos fell flat on his face, as Ayala got the knockout at the 5 minute mark. Decent debut for Javy Ayala, but he seems a bit reckless, so I'm not sure what to expect from him in the future.
