TKO (Punches)
      The first round was basically a boxing match, where Tybura threw a few decent jabs, but for the most part, Abdurakhimov was picking him apart with his punches. Round one goes to Abdurakhimov. The second round was another round of boxing, with Tybura moving forward the entire time, but Abdurakhimov looked like he was still landing the better shots with his counters. Abdurakhimov rocked the shit out of Tybura with a massive left hook halfway through the round, he followed it up with a few more punches, Tybura was basically out on his feet, and the fight was stopped. That was a solid performance by Abdurakhimov.
      Abdurakhimov caught a couple of kicks in the first round, and took down Arlovski both times. Abdurakhimov spent most of the round on top, throwing short punches, but for the most part, he was just laying on top of Arlovski. The referee reset them with 2 minutes left in the round. They traded a few strikes before the end of the round, but overall, I think Abdurakhimov won that round with his takedowns.
     The second round was similar to the first round, with a few shots being traded, and then Abdurakhimov took down Arlovski 90 seconds into the round. Abdurakhimov punched Arlovski in the face repeatedly as he tried to work his way back to his feet. Arlovski eventually tripped Abdurakhimov, and finished the round on top, but I still think Abdurakhimov did more in that round, so I have Abdurakhimov ahead 20-18 going into the final round.
     The final round was a sloppy back & forth battle, where they both looked exhausted, they both threw some sloppy shit at each other, they sort of clinched a bit here & there, etc... In the end, this should be a 29-28 decision for Abdurakhimov, if not 30-27. All 3 judges agreed, giving Abdurakhimov the unanimous decision victory, over a former Champion who is well past his prime.

      These guys both traded some big fat punches, they both landed a few solid shots, and then Abdurakhimov blasted Sherman with a massive right hand that caused Sherman to turn his back to him for a second, Abdurakhimov ran behind him, punched him in the side of the head, and Sherman collapsed, forcing the referee to stop the fight as Sherman tried to figure out where he was while hanging out on his hands & knees. That was a solid first round stoppage by Shamil Abdurakhimov.
TKO (Punches)
      Lewis threw a head kick 30 seconds into the first round, Shamil caught it, and took him to the ground, landing in side control. He setup a keylock, Lewis defended, Shamil cranked it again, and Lewis just randomly stood up without even trying. I thought he was in serious trouble there, but Lewis looks like he just woke up from a nap. Shamil pressed Lewis up against the fence. Shamil threw a few knees to Lewis's legs, but not a lot was happening, so they reset back in the center of the cage. Shamil worked some more clinching, not a lot was happening, they reset again, Lewis threw another silly kick, Shamil caught it, punched him, and took Lewis down again to finish the round on top in full mount. Round one clearly goes to Shamil Abdurakhimov.
      They clinched to start the second round, Lewis landed a decent knee, Shamil tried to take him down, but that didn't work, so the referee reset them, but Shamil immediately clinched again. Lewis is having some trouble with his right eye, he seems to think he was poked, but apparently it was just the glove of Shamil that scraped his eye. Lewis threw another bad kick, and Shamil caught it again, taking him to the ground again without any trouble whatsoever. Lewis randomly went for a shocking leg lock attempt, but Shamil escaped, and then took him down again. Lewis landed some big punches during that brief scramble, but I still have Shamil ahead 2-0 going into the third round.
      Lewis threw a knee to start the third round, Shamil caught it, took him down again, but Lewis sort of stuffed the shot, stood back up, and blasted Shamil with some heavy punches. Lewis landed some more punches, and Shamil just circled around him slowly on the outside edge of the cage. The crowd is clearly falling asleep here. Lewis clinched 2 minutes into the round, and then ducked down for a takedown, but Shamil easily stuffed the shot. Shamil threw a spinning back fist, Lewis fired back with some big punches, Shamil ducked under them, and scored another takedown with 2 minutes left in the round. Shamil went for that keylock again, Lewis pulled guard, and they just kind of hung out there for a while. This fight so far has been a surprisingly terrible fight. The referee stood them up with a minute left in the round, and Lewis chased Shamil, throwing wid punches, but he wasn't connecting, as Shamil was literally just running away. The referee just shocked me, by warning Shamil that he would take a point away if Shamil doesn't start fighting. Lewis threw some wild punches in the final 15 seconds. Shamil is probably ahead 3-0 going into the fourth round, but you could make an argument that Lewis won that round, by being a lot more aggressive. Shamil seems absolutely exhausted.
      Lewis threw another bad head kick to start the fourth round, Shamil caught it, threw him to the ground, Lewis stood back up, and started throwing some bombs, with a few of them connecting. I'm starting to think that he was starting slow to conserve energy for the 5 round fight. Shamil clinched though, and pressed Lewis into the fence 90 seconds into the fourth round. They broke apart, Lewis blasted Shamil with some heavy punches again, and then they just stood there and stared at each other for a while. Lewis shot for an aggressive takedown with 2 minutes left in the round, he pinned Shamil against the fence, he blasted him with a LOT of the heaviest punches of the fight so far, as he was caving Shamil's head into the ground, Lewis secured full mount, unloaded with some extremely violent punches, and the referee was forced to stop the fight. That fight was terrible, but that finish was pretty badass, as usual. I'm glad to see Lewis's winning streak is still intact.
Decision (Split)
      This fight started pretty slowly, with neither fighter really wanting to engage. Shamil shot for a lazy takedown, but Harris easily shrugged it off. Harris threw one kick around the one minute mark, and Shamil caught it, and took him to the ground. Harris scrambled back to his feet before absorbing any real damage. Harris threw another big kick, this time connecting with Shamil's body. They traded some clumsy strikes, Harris landed a knee as Shamil was shooting for another takedown, and Harris stuffed that one as well. Shamil clinched, and Harris broke free with a loud thunking knee to the skull of Shamil. Shamil rushed in with a series of right hands that connected. They traded some wild punches, and Harris keeps pushing his hips too far forward, which would make it easy for Shamil to score a takedown if he can time it right. The back of Shamil's head is bleeding a lot, but I don't know where that cut came from. I'm scoring that round for Harris, but it could probably go either way.
     They continued to trade some sloppy punches in the second round. Shamil spun around for some sloppy shit, and Harris took him down and went for some sort of front choke. Shamil broke free and they traded some punches on the break. That choke was the best move of the fight so far, even though Shamil escaped. They continued to trade some sloppy strikes for a little while. I don't really know who won either round, but I have it scored as a draw going into the final round, as I don't think either fighter has really done enough to take a clear advantage yet after the first 10 minutes.
     Harris threw some long punches & kicks in the final round, but neither fighter was really "going for it" at all. Harris had that determined "You don't want to fuck with me" look on his face, which translates to me as "I have an internal battle going on in my head, and I'm having a hard time focussing on this fight." Shamil on the other hand looked like he knew exactly where he was, but he was mostly just there to collect a paycheck. Both fighters looked sloppy in this fight, neither fighter was overly aggressive at all, neither fighter showed great defense. Overall, it was a pretty generic heavyweight fight. I'm scoring the fight 29-28 for Harris, but I wouldn't be shocked by a split-decision or something. After the fight, Harris did a victory lab, while Shamil went back to his corner looking dejected. Shamil wins the fight via split-decision.
     Abdurakhimov clipped Hamilton a few times in the first round, at one point knocking him flat on his face in the first minute of the round, where Abdurakhimov was able to blast him with a series of uppercuts on the ground, before he fought his way back to his feet. Hamilton seemed to recover pretty well though. The rest of the round was spent clinching, with Abdurakhimov working some decent dirty boxing. Abdurakhimov wins the first round.
      Abdurakhimov continued to outstrike Hamilton in the second round, blasting him with a wide variety of hard punches, while showing solid footwork. Hamilton tried to get a takedown from the clinch, but failed. Hamilton landed a few decent shots in that round, but nothing compared to what Abdurakhimov was landing. Abdurakhimov goes into the final round with a 2-0 lead.
      Hamilton opened up a cut above Abdurakhimov's right eye with and accidental headbutt to start the final round. Abdurakhimov continued to pick apart Hamilton for the rest of the round, clearly ending the fight with a unanimous decision, 29-28 on two scorecards, and 30-27 on the other (and mine). Decent first UFC win for Shamil Abdurakhimov.
