Decision (Split)
      Bravo came out and aggressively clinched with Caceres, trying repeatedly to drag him to the ground. The first round ended up being pretty close, but I scored it just slightly in favor of Bravo. The second round had Caceres bouncing around a lot, Bravo tried to corner him while throwing punches, and Caceres dropped him with a clean left hand, and then he jumped on him, looking to setup a choke, and that break in the action gave Bravo some time to recover. Caceres spent the rest of the round beating the shit out of Bravo, mostly with hard left hands, as he bloodied the face of Bravo and rocked him around the cage a few times. This fight is probably all tied up going into the final round.
     The final round had Bravo beating up Caceres, as Caceres looked exhausted. Caceres shot in for a terrible takedown halfway through the round, which Bravo easily stuffed, and then they reset. Bravo looked like he was going to run away with the round, but Caceres fired back with some big kicks late in the round, and he might have stolen the round there. I really have no idea who is going to win this fight, but I would give it to Caceres, 29-28, partially just because I want him to win. The judges basically agreed with me, giving Caceres the hard fought split-decision victory.
KO (Head Kick)
      These guys both threw some brutal body kicks, they traded them back & forth for a few seconds, Bandenay threw a brutal head kick/knee to Bravo's chin, and knocked him the fuck out, flattening him out like a board. That was a fantastic UFC debut for Humberto Bandenay.
TKO (Punches)
      The first round had Bravo picking apart Puelles with some pretty solid boxing, busting up his nose early. Puelles came close to securing a couple of takedowns, but Bravo showed some outstanding balance for the first half of the round. Puelles finally scored a legit takedown with 2 minutes left in the round, but Bravo worked his way back to his feet and went back to picking apart Puelles with strikes. Puelles landed some decent kicks, from a variety of angles, but Bravo's boxing was still proving to be a little too much for him. Bravo rocked the shit out of Puelles with some heavy punches at the end of the round, before stuffing one last shot. Round one goes to Bravo.
     The second round was more of the same, with Bravo stuffing shots, while picking apart Puelles with big punches. He eventually dropped him with a body shot halfway through the round, Puelles curled up into a ball, Bravo unloaded on him, and the referee jumped in to stop the fight. That was a fantastic performance by Martin Bravo as he makes his official UFC debut, and becomes The Ultimate Fighter Latin America Season 3 Champion? That title is way too fucking long.
     These guys both came out swinging wildly, and then Bravo took Rodriguez to the ground one minute into the round, but he popped right back up. Rodriguez blasted him with some big punches while chasing him around the cage, as Bravo was clearly looking to score another takedown, but he wasn't very successful. They traded a few decent strikes, and then Bravo finally scored another takedown with a minute left in the round, but he still couldn't hold Rodriguez down. Rodriguez rolled for some weird shit, and Bravo jumped on him, and beat him up on the ground until the end of the round. Round one goes to Bravo.
     They continued to trade some sloppy punches in the second round, while Bravo kept trying to take Rodriguez to the ground again. Bravo's nose exploded from something, but I didn't see the shot that made it happen. There was a weird scramble with 90 seconds left, that left Bravo laying backwards on top of Rodriguez, but they stood back up and finished out the round with some more sloppy striking. Bravo took down Rodriguez in the final seconds of the round, and beat him up a little bit from side control. Bravo's nose looks demolished, but I think I have him ahead 2-0 going into the final round.
     The final round featured some additional sloppy boxing, with Rodriguez being slightly more aggressive, but both fighters looked pretty exhausted going into the round. Bravo finally took Rodriguez down again with a minute left in the round, and he beat him up with short punches from inside his guard for a few seconds before they stood back up and continued to trade sloppy strikes. This was a close fight, but I still think Bravo won all 3 rounds. All 3 judges agreed, giving the fight to Bravo via unanimous decision as he moves onto the finals.
      The first round took place standing, with both guys landing a few decent shots, but I didn't think either fighter really looked like they wanted to win the fight. It was kind of like a couple of drunk guys in a bar, that want to hit each other, but they don't really have any intention of putting anyone's lights out. I guess if I had to pick a winner, I would give that round to Bravo based on a decent barrage of punches he delivered in the final 10 seconds of the round.
     The second round was more of the same, with both guys landing some decent punches & kicks, but for the most part, not a lot happened. With one minute left in the round, Bravo scored a takedown, grabbed Chalo's back, locked on a rear-naked choke, and it looked like he had it, but Chalo was able to hang on, until he was saved by the bell, leading to a pretty clear unanimous decision victory for Bravo after two rounds. Congrats to Bravo for moving on to the semifinals, but I'm really not that impressed with his performances so far. He passed the first round with a fluke injury to his opponent's bad knee, and now he's coasting on to the semifinals with a halfway decent striking match against a pretty decent fighter.
TKO (Leg Injury)
      Ganin circled around the outside, and Bravo stood pretty firm in the center of the cage. They traded a few punches, but nothing significant was landing early in the first round. Bravo landed a few decent shots, including some loose leg kicks, and Ganin was having knee problems, so one of the kicks to the knee dropped him, Bravo went in for the kill, and the fight was stopped because Ganin's knee basically went out on him.
