TKO (Punches)
     Kyle came out swinging, he landed some solid shots, DeReese ducked under a combination, and then took Kyle down 30 seconds into the opening round, landing in side control. DeReese smothered Kyle against the fence, Kyle tried to get up, DeReese unloaded with some punches while keeping him pinned against the fence, he passed to full mount 2 minutes into the round, he continued to unload with big punches, and Kyle tapped out due to strikes. That was a decent win for Muhammed DeReese.
      Kyle dropped Alencar 30 seconds into the opening round, but he popped right back up, clinched, and then took down Kyle 30 seconds later. Alencar passed to mount, unloaded with some big punches, Kyle scrambled to pull guard, and Alencar continued to throw punches on the ground. Alencar locked on an arm-triangle choke, and it looked pretty tight, but Kyle didn't seem phased at all. Alencar passed to mount again, threw some big punches, and then Kyle finally swept him with 45 seconds left in the round, but he wasn't able to do anything noteworthy before the end of the round. Round one clearly goes to Alencar.
     Alencar scored a takedown to start the second round, he pinned Kyle against the fence, and then continued to beat him up with short punches from full mount. Kyle swept him halfway through the round, and started working some ground & pound from half mount. The referee reset them with 90 seconds left in the round. Alencar then took down Kyle, and finished the final minute of the round back in full mount, throwing punches at Kyle's face. Alencar is ahead 20-18 going into the final round, as Kyle is giving up mount way too frequently.
     The final round was more of the same, with Alencar beating up Kyle with some tired looking punches for about 45 seconds, and then he took him down again, and landed back in full mount. I've never seen anyone willing to give up full mount this easily, over and over again. In the end, this was a clear cut 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Caio Alencar.
TKO (Knees)
      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Kyle rushed Gallemore and unloaded with some wild elbows & knees, pressuring Gallemore against the fence. Gallemore eventually broke free, fired back with some big shots, Kyle pressured him again, unloaded with some brutal knees from the clinch, and Gallemore crumbled against the fence. That was a solid ass beating delivered by Mike Kyle, as he earns another much needed win.
      The first round had both guys circling around each other, trading strikes at a fairly competitive pace. Copeland probably landed a few extra strikes, so the first round probably goes to Copeland. The second round started with Copeland throwing a side kick at Kyle's dick. Kyle dropped and cried for a while. Once the fight started back up, they continued to trade punches at a fairly even pace, with Copeland throwing just a few extra punches. Copeland is probably ahead 20-18 going into the final round.
     The final round still had Copeland walking down Kyle, throwing big punches, while Kyle looked like he was more interested in throwing counters. The problem is, Kyle really needed to pressure Copeland some more, and that simply wasn't happening. In the end, I scored this fight 30-27 for Josh Copeland, and all 3 judges scored the fight, 29-28, giving him the unanimous decision victory.
      I was going to give the first round to Starks for his striking, until Kyle took him down a couple of times, beating him up near the end of the round. They got back to their feet though, and Starks beat up Kyle a little bit, and then secured a takedown of his own at the very end of hte round. I have no idea who won that round. Starks secured a takedown to start the second round, and beat up Kyle a little bit on the ground with some basic ground & pound. Starks secured another takedown to start the third round, landing some pretty weak ground & pound, but he did enough to keep the fight on the ground, cruising safely into a unanimous decision victory.
KO (Punches)
      Yeah! Anthony Johnson is a badass. Both guys are pretty big for the division, and both guys came out swinging, and once Kyle went for a takedown, it seemed like the fight was over from that point forward, because Johnson was able to easily defend the takedown, and then he punched Kyle in the head, Kyle landed flat on his face, Johnson threw one last diving punch for good measure, and the fight was over, with Kyle out cold.
      This was a pretty decent main event, to a card I couldn't give less of a shit about. Both guys threw some solid strikes, there wasn't really any grappling going on at all, I gave the first two rounds to Arlovski, and the last round to Kyle, but really, a couple of those rounds could probably be debated. In the end, the judges basically agreed with me, giving the unanimous decision victory to Arlovski, 29-28 all all three scorecards.
KO (Punches)
      This fight was sort of sad I guess? Travis Wiuff is one of the scariest looking fighters I've seen, but once he got punched in the head, he went down, and after a few seconds, Kyle told the referee "He's out! He's out!" But the referee was just standing there watching, so Kyle punched him in the face one more time, CLEARLY knocking him the fuck out, and then the fight was stopped. After that, it took several minutes for Wiuff to come back to life, so Kyle was PISSED that the referee didn't stop it sooner, because Wiuff was in bad shape, hooked up to the oxygen tank & the whole nine yards.
Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
      This fight started out kind of slow, but once Mousasi took Kyle to the ground, the pace started to pick up, Mousasi unleashed some pretty badass ground & pound, and eventually Kyle rolled over, exposing his back, Mousasi locked on the rear-naked choke, and then Kyle tapped out, and then about 35 minutes later, the referee said "Oh, ok... I guess he's quitting..." and he pulled Mousasi off of him. It was weird, watching the referee just staring at Kyle's hand, questioning "Is he tapping? Or is he just patting Mousasi on the back?" Fucking weird organization we have here.
No Decision (Overturned by CSAC)
      Now we're talking! Feijao started the fight with a big hook that missed, followed by a huge knee that landed, knocking Kyle back against the cage & to the ground. Feijao then dropped a hundred hammerfists, Kyle slipped up, and Feijao locked on the guillotine choke for the submission victory 33 seconds into the first round. Feijao is legit!
      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.
TKO (Punches)
      OH SNAP! Kyle almost finished Silva in that first round, putting him on his ass from a punch, and then he delivered a TON of big punches on the ground, battering the shit out of Silva's giant head, and you COULD argue that the fight probably should have been stopped, but Silva eventually recovered, and was able to clinch on the ground until the end of the round, as Kyle continued to pound on him with shots to the body & the head. 10-8 round for Kyle. The second round started with Bigfoot taking Kyle to the ground, where he wrestled the shit out of him, before eventually moving into side mount, and then he locked on a TIGHT anaconda choke, but Kyle somehow slipped out of it, so Bigfoot climbed into the full mount, where he started battering the head of Kyle with huge punches, finishing the fight via TKO just past the halfway mark of the second round.
Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)
      Abongo, after his last win via guillotine choke 4 months ago, got a little bit guillotine happy in this fight, doing his best to sink one in, and he locked on a couple of them, but Kyle was able to power out of them every time. Abongo still won the first round with his grappling, but not a lot of damage was done by either fighter. The second round had Kyle beating up Abongo from the clinch for a little while, but Abongo eventually dropped to the ground, where he started looking for a heel hook. Kyle escaped, and Abongo ended up stuck in Kyle's guard. The referee got weird, and stood them up. Kyle then secured a takedown, ending up in the full mount, Abongo gave up his back, Kyle locked on the rear-naked choke, and Kyle finished the fight via submission, a little past the halfway mark of the second round.
Submission (Guillotine Choke)
      This fight started with Werdum landing some decent kicks. Kyle rocked him with some punches, the fight went to the ground, and Werdum unloaded some punches on Kyle. Kyle went for an armbar, which was shocking, and Werdum escaped, stood back up, locked on a guillotine choke, and finished Kyle via submission in 1:24 of the first round. Really nice win for Fabricio Werdum in his Strikeforce debut.
TKO (Punches)
      This fight was kind of slow paced, without a lot of action happening in the first round. The second round though, had Feijao taking the fight to the ground, and unleashing some ground & pound from Kyle's guard. Feijao tried to work his ground game to pass Kyle's guard, but eventually, they both stood back up, where Kyle knocked Feijao down with a big punch, followed by some more big punches on the ground, finishing the fight via referee stoppage. Nice win for Mike Kyle.
Submission (Armbar)
      OH SHIT, Cole came out, grabbed Kyle, whipped him around and slammed him to the ground. Once they hit the ground, Cole locked on the armbar, and finished Mike Kyle, in 45 seconds of the first round. That was really impressive, and I'm actually kind of shocked that he finished Kyle like that. Awesome win for Wayne Cole.
DQ (Strikes After the Bell)
      This fight went to the ground early, and it was a game of strength, with Kyle ending up on Olsen's back, looking for the rear-naked choke. Olsen escaped, and they stood back up, where Olsen clipped Kyle with a big punch, and then went for a takedown, but Kyle ended up throwing him to the ground, ending up on top in Olsen's half guard. From there, Kyle got full mount, and landed some strikes, but Olsen rolled out of it, endfing up in Kyle's guard. Olsen stood up, and tried to get on Kyle's back, but Kyle brushed him off, and then as Olsen was on the ground, Kyle soccer kicked him in the face, BRUTALLY knocking him out, the referee tried to stop the fight due to the illegal kick, and Kyle snapped, and continued to punch the unconscious Olsen, as it took 3 referees (including Herb Dean) to pull Kyle off of him. That was a fucking BRUTAL beatdown by Kyle, but congrats to Olsen I guess, for winning via DQ.
Technical Draw (Thumb to Soszynski's Eye)
      Well, that fight sucked. Both of these guys are massive, huge muscles, all that shit, so you expect to see some crazy power on display. Instead, you saw a couple of low blows delivered by Kyle, followed by an eye poke... so... I mean, this fight was technically declared a draw, because the fight was stopped around 2 minutes into the first round, due to Soszynski's eye injury. I'm going to give Soszynski the victory points, based on the fact that I feel Kyle should have MAYBE been disqualified. But yeah, shitty fight overall.
TKO (Punches)
      Devin Cole started this fight looking pretty strong, taking Kyle to the ground, and spending the entire first round, beating up Kyle on the ground. The second round was more of the same, with Cole taking Kyle to the ground again, where he beat the living shit out of him, for the remainder of the fight, until the referee eventually stopped the fight. Really impressive debut for Devin Cole.
KO (Punch)
      This fight basically consisted of Mike Kyle taking Irvin to the ground without any problem whatsoever, and then he started pounding away at him for a while... Then he got lazy, and just sat there on top of Irvin, until the referee just stood them back up... Once they were on their feet, they both started throwing bombs, without any sort of defense whatsoever, James Irvin got caught in the jaw, and got knocked the fuck out... Mike Kyle looked like a beast in this fight... James Irvin got OWNED... Mike Kyle wins by first round KO...
KO (Punch)
      Both big guys came out swinging, Mike Kyle got Eilers in the clinch, and threw a couple of knees to the balls of Eilers, causing the referee to stop the fight for a moment, to take away points from Mike Kyle... Then, the fight started back up again, and Justin Eilers knocked Mike Kyle the fuck out with a hard left hook... Justin Eilers wins by KO in under 2 minutes in the first round...
KO (Punch)
      This was a pretty good fight too... Mike Kyle took the fight to the ground, and Wes Sims displayed some great submission skills, almost locking on several different kinds of chokes... Eventually, after spending the majority of the first round on the ground, the referee stood them up, Wes Sims complained that Kyle bit him, and then Mike Kyle knocked him the fuck out... So, Mike Kyle wins the fight by KO in the first round, but there may be some controversy about whether or not he cheated to get that win...
TKO (Punches)
      This was Jude Hargett's one & only pro MMA fight. He looked like a 6'4" version of the founder of Digg, Kevin Rose. Kyle took him to the ground with a slam, and BEAT THE SHIT out of Hargett's body with brutal punches. Hargett tried to secure a Kimura, but Kyle just continued to beat the shit out of him, so it didn't really matter. After 3 minutes or so, Kyle opened up and beat the shit out of Hargett's face, abut Hargett continued to look for that Kimura, giving Kyle a reason to second guess his position. Kyle then got the full mount, and destroyed Hargett with punches, finishing him with HARD punches. Another nice win for Mike Kyle.
KO (Punches)
      This looked like a fighter (Kyle) vs. Kevin James (Vrbanovic). Kyle came out, threw some hard punches, I think he MIGHT have knocked out Vrbanovic with a slap, and then he soccer kicked him in the face, punched him a few more times, and the fight was over, in 12 seconds. Mike Kyle is a brutal killing machine.
