Submission (Arm-Triangle Choke)
      This fight started with Lima dropping Struve 4 seconds into the opening round with an overhand right. He immediately jumped on him, and started throwing punches from inside Struve's guard. Lima spent the entire round on top, pounding on Struve. Round one obviously goes to Lima.
     The second round started with some heavyweight clinching, with both guys trading control against the fence, until Struve tripped Lima and ended up on top 45 seconds into the round. From there, Struve slowly worked toward setting up an arm-triangle choke, which he used to submit Lima halfway through the second round. That's a much needed win for Struve, breaking a 3-Fight losing streak. I still don't have any faith in Struve's future, but... At least he got a win, eh?
     Wieczorek scored a takedown 45 seconds into the opening round, and then Lima wrestled his way into top control a minute later. With 20 seconds left in the round, Lima finally threw some big punches. Round one clearly goes to Lima, but most of the round consisted of just laying on top of each other. I'm not a big fan of either fighter yet.
     Lima started the second round with some hard leg kicks, and then he tried to take Wieczorek down, but Wieczorek did a good job stuffing the shot against the fence. This fight was pretty slow paced, but Lima was consistently moving forward, and chipping away with big punches & leg kicks, and then they'd clinch and rest for a while, with Lima pushing Wieczorek against the fence. Lima is ahead 20-18 going into the final round.
     They clinched to start the final round, and then Lima threw Wieczorek to the ground a minute into the round, landing in side control. He passed to mount 2 minutes into the round, and then Wieczorek quickly scrambled back to his feet. Wieczorek threw a head kick, and then fell down, and Lima jumped back into his guard. The referee reset them with 90 seconds left in the round. Wieczorek threw a few strikes, but didn't have anything behind them. Lima scored a final takedown with a minute left, and finished the fight on top. This was an obvious 30-27 unanimous decision victory for the underdog, Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
Submission (Von Flue Choke)
      The first round had Lima blasting OSP with brutal kicks, to the legs & body, and he also landed some really heavy punches. OSP started to fire back late in the round, but for the most part, all of the really hard shots in that round were delivered by Rogerio de Lima. It's also worth noting that he missed weight by 4 pounds though. Round one goes to Lima.
     OSP landed a big punch to start the second round, and then caught a kick which he used to take down de Lima. OSP pinned him against the fence, and unloaded with some sharp elbows, chopping up the face of Lima. Lima tried to stand back up a minute into the round, but OSP just pulled him back down and continued to pressure him against the fence. Lima sort of grabbed a guillotine, OSP almost had side control, so he pressed his shoulder into Lima's throat, and got the submission victory with the second Von Flue choke of his career. That was a big comeback victory for OSP, as he earns a win in his hometown, breaking his 3-Fight losing streak, and possibly saving his UFC career. I was tempted to talk retirement after his lack of effort in the first round, but I guess he's back at it with another finish eh?
TKO (Punches)
      Here we have a couple of light heavyweights, that look like heavyweights. It's worth noting Lima missed weight pretty significantly. They threw some big heavy strikes, Kimball dropped Lima one minute into the round with a punch/trip, and then Lima tried to lock up Kimball's leg on the ground, so they just stood back up and reset. Around the halfway mark, Kimball kind of slipped, Lima jumped on him, unloaded with some heavy punches, and the fight was stopped. That was a solid win for Lima, but I'm not really sure why Kimball fell down in the first place.
Submission (Guillotine Choke)
      Antigulov threw some big punches, and then took Lima to the ground with ease. There was a wild scramble, Lima blasted Antigulov with a big upkick, Antigulov jumped into side control, slapped on a tight guillotine choke, pulled guard with it, Lima tried to punch his way free, but he was eventually forced to submit in his home country of Brazil. That was a fantastic UFC debut for Gadzhimurad Antigulov!
Submission (Arm-Triangle Choke)
      Lima started this fight by throwing brutal leg kicks, mixed with a few head kicks. He blasted Hester with some hard punches, knocking him to the ground in the first minute of the fight. He then pinned him against the cage in half mount, and beat him up with short punches. Lima slowly moved into full mount, and Hester was holding on for dear life. Lima continued to pound on him, while Hester slowly regained his guard. Lima postured up, and rained down some fucking BOMBS on Hester's face, brutally beating him with heavy punches & elbows, and Hester's facial expression was showing the pain. Lima then randomly slapped on an arm-triangle choke, and finished the fight via submission late in the first round. That was an awesome display of striking and ground & pound by Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
      This fight was AWESOME! Krylov threw some hard kicks, both to the head & body of Lima, he landed some great punches, there were a few nice grappling exchanges, where Lima cranked on a guillotine choke a couple of different times, nearly finishing the fight with the second one. Krylov escaped though, and blasted Lima, stood up, there was a scramble, Krylov got on his back, and finished the fight with a rear-naked choke. AWESOME first round submission victory for Krylov.
TKO (Punches)
      Wow, I feel kind of bad for Igor Pokrajac. This fight started off kind of slow, with the much larger Marcos, pinning Pokrajac against the cage for the first minute or so, sort of stalling in a boring fashion. Once the referee separated them though, fists started flying, Lima clipped Pokrajac, knocked him to the ground kind of hard, he then jumped on him, punched him a few more times, and the referee stopped the fight. Pokrajac was still defending himself though, so I think this fight was stopped a little bit early. The only reason I'm sort of sensitive about it though, is because this BASICALLY makes a 5-Fight losing streak, for Pokrajac, who at this point, will probably have a really difficult time convincing the UFC to keep him employed.
KO (Punches)
      Wow, this was a pretty quick fight. Both guys came together, they clinched, Marcos clearly looked like the larger man, and he pushed Moreira away, landed a huge overhand right as they broke away from each other, knocked Moreira to the ground face first, and then finished him off with some more punches. This night is off to a pretty explosive start!
Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
      These guys both came out throwing big punches & knees, tucking their chins and swinging for the fences. Lima slowed things down by clinching, and pressing Antonio against the fence around the one minute mark. They traded a few knees from the clinch, and then Antonio took Lima's back in the clinch, he threw him to the ground, slapped on a rear-naked choke, and finished the fight by submission with 2:19 remaining in the opening round. That was a solid win for Antonio Carlos Jr.
      The first round started with both guys clinching, and walking around the cage slowly, while trying to trade knees to the body. They broke apart 90 seconds into the round, Francino threw a punch, Lima rocked him with an even bigger punch, and then slapped on a tight guillotine choke, but Francino was able to shake free. They reset, and then Lima slammed the shit out of Francino, landing inside his guard. It looked like Francino was trying to gauge Lima's eyes, Lima bit his finger, and the fight was paused awkwardly while the doctors checked out what appeared to be a dislocated finger on Francino's right hand. He wanted Lima to be disqualified, but the referee just told him to not put his fingers in Lima's mouth anymore, so the fight continued... Lima smothered Francino against the fence for most of the rest of the round, until Francino reversed a takedown with 30 seconds left in the round, allowing him to end the round in full mount, but I still scored that round for Lima.
     The second round started with some more clinching. A few big punches were thrown, and then Lima threw Francino to the ground and smothered him for a while. The referee stood them up 90 seconds into the round. Lima beat the shit out of Francino with some heavy strikes, and then took him down again, this time landing in half mount. From there, Lima worked some steady ground & pound until the end of the round, resulting in the unanimous decision going in favor of Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
Submission (Guillotine Choke)
      Santos walked out there like he just woke up from a nap. They traded a few strikes, and Santos rushed in to clinch, clealy looking for a takedown. Lima locked on a guillotine choke on the way down, and forced the submission 40 seconds into the opening round. Great win for Marcos Rogerio de Lima, and a very disappointing loss for Thiago "Big Monster" Santos.
      This fight was a pretty good kickboxing match, with Mike Kyle constantly floating forward, throwing punch combinations, and random kicks, and Lime spending most of the fight moving back, trying to defend against the strikes, not really landing a ton of anything worthwhile as far as offense is concerned. He picked up the pace a little bit in the second round, landing some solid leg kicks, as well as a few decent punch combinations, but it was still a pretty even round that could have gone either way, but I gave it to Kyle for securing a couple of takedowns at the end of the round, and beating up Lima a little bit from the clinch. Kyle continued to beat up Lima during the third round, resulting in a pretty easy to score, 30-27 fight for Mike Kyle, and all 3 judges agreed, but a couple of them gave the second round to Lima.
