      These guys spent half the first round trading strikes at a moderate pace, and then Pantoja dropped Reis with a perfectly placed straight right hand, he unloaded on him with big punches on the ground, and the fight was stopped halfway through the first round. That's a huge win for Alexandre Pantoja, and another disappointing loss for an aging Wilson Reis.

      These guys traded a few strikes, and then Reis put everything he had into a single leg takedown against the fence. Nguyen worked his way back to his feet and reset halfway through the opening round. Nguyen spent 90 seconds chipping away with strikes, and then Reis took him down again with a minute left in the round. Nguyen worked his way back to his feet, and then Reis took him down again. Round one goes to Reis.
     Reis took down Nguyen early in the second round again, and Nguyen worked his way back to his feet and reset a minute into the round. Nguyen spent a little while picking apart Reis with strikes, and then Reis started digging for another takedown, pressuring Nguyen against the fence, but Nguyen did a good job stuffing the shots this time. Nguyen yanked Nguyen to the ground with a minute left in the round, and continued to pressure him against the fence in a seated position. Reis has a 20-18 lead going into the final round.
     The final round was more of the same, with Nguyen beating up Reis on the feet, and Reis spent most of his energy trying to take Nguyen to the ground. He took him down repeatedly, but Nguyen did a great job getting back up almost immediately every time. I'm giving that third round to Nguyen, but Reis should still probably win this fight, 29-28. All 3 judges gave all 3 rounds to Reis, and Nguyen seemed shocked for some reason.

      Reis came out with his chin tucked, and he basically chased Moraga around the cage while pumping jabs, while Moraga looked like he was more interested in working his counter boxing. Moraga slapped on a standing guillotine choke halfway through the round, and Reis used that moment to score a takedown. Moraga tried to hang on, but Reis did a good job taking control on the ground, so Moraga had to let the choke go, and they stood back up and went back to trading strikes. Reis scored another takedown with 40 seconds left in the round, and Moraga converted that into a rear-naked choke attempt, which Reis was able to wrestle his way out of, resulting in Reis ending the round on top. That round was close, but I would score it slightly in favor of Moraga I guess?
     Reis scored another takedown a minute into the second round, and then Moraga worked his way back to his feet a few seconds later to get back to the boxing. Reis continued to look more aggressive, but he wasn't accomplishing much with the energy he was spending, as Moraga was able to stuff a few takedown attempts, and Reis's striking wasn't getting him anywhere. Reis scored another takedown with 90 seconds left in the round, and he tried to work some short range ground & pound, so Moraga gave up his back, Reis tried to setup a rear-naked choke, Moraga spun around into Reis's guard, and finished the round on top. I have Moraga ahead 20-18 going into the final round, but it could potentially be all tied up.
     The final round started with Reis scoring another takedown, and he pretty much dominated Moraga on the ground for the rest of the round, beating him up with ground & pound, while trying to setup a rear-naked choke. Moraga did a good job avoiding too much damage, but that round still goes 100% to Wilson Reis. I thought the first two rounds were close, and the final round went to Reis, so I wouldn't be shocked by a split-decision, but all 3 judges scored the fight 29-28 in favor of John Moraga.

      Cejudo started the first round by throwing some FAST & HEAVY punches, and he clipped Reis with a lot of shots, and Cejudo also landed some big kicks as well. Reis landed a few solid kicks of his own, but he wasn't able to match the pace that Cejudo was throwing at him. Cejudo landed a knee, and then took down Reis halfway through the round, holding onto the back clinch. They reset with 2 minutes left in the round. Wilson attempted a single leg takedown with 90 seconds left in the round, but Cejudo was able to stuff the shot with ease. He blasted Reis with a head kick, and some more punches. Cejudo dropped Reis with a minute left in the round, but Reis popped back up, and tried to clinch. Cejudo scored a quick single leg takedown with 15 seconds left in the round. Round one clearly goes to Henry Cejudo.
     Reis threw a fast body kick to start the second round, and then Cejudo dropped him with a big right hand, he stood above him, unloaded with some big punches, and the fight was stopped. That was a fantastic one-sided performance by Henry Cejudo, and it might have been the best performance of his career. I wasn't really interested in seeing him fight for the title again before this fight, but after that performance, I think he deserves a shot more than Ray Borg does. BUT, then again, considering he was on a 2-Fight losing streak before this fight, I'm not really sure where this win puts him in the rankings. Either way, Henry Cejudo looked fucking amazing tonight.

Submission (Armbar)
14:49
      The first round started with some very even striking exchanges, but once Reis started working for takedowns, and Johnson stuffed the shit out of multiple shots and then blasted Reis with knees & punches on the way back up, it became pretty clear that Johnson was still in control of that round. I scored the first round for Johnson.
      Johnson continued to outclass Reis for the duration of the second round, picking him apart with lightning fast strikes, while moving out of range far faster than Reis could keep up with, and then Johnson dropped Reis late in the round, he jumped on him, unloaded with some violent hammerfists, and then he capped off the round with a big punch to the face on the ground. You could argue that was a 10-8 round for Johnson, since he nearly finished Reis in the final minute.
      The third round was another dominant round for Johnson, as he continued to beat up Reis on the feet, and he took him down, and dominated him on the ground as well with his ground & pound. He mounted him with around 30 seconds left in the round, he unloaded with some punches, grabbed an armbar, dropped back, and nearly snapped Reis's arm, forcing him to submit. Demetrious Johnson is a fucking legend at this point, and clearly he cements his position as the #1 Pound for Pound fighter on the planet.

      These guys both traded some heavy strikes for the first minute of the opening round, and then Reis took down the much taller Sasaki, and tried to grab his back, but Sasaki was able to stand back up, resetting for more striking. Sasaki uses his range well, as he was able to pick apart Reis from way on the outside, but Reis took him down again with a driving double leg halfway through the round. Every time they hit the ground, Sasaki immediately goes for a Kimura, but he hasn't really come close to securing it yet. Reis secured a strong half mount, where he was able to drop some heavy elbows to the head of Sasaki. Reis finished the round still working some basic ground & pound, while mostly just grinding all over Sasaki. Round one goes to Reis.
     Reis scored another fast takedown 30 seconds into the second round. Reis took Sasaki's back one minute into the round, but they were in an awkward position, where Sasaki was close to being able to take top position, and he finally shook Reis off him and stood back up 90 seconds into the round. They traded a few punches, and then Reis took Sasaki down again 2 minutes into the round. Reis took his back again 3 minutes into the round, and he slapped on a rear-naked choke, but Sasaki was able to escape. Reis continued to work for those chokes, and he had one locked on that looked like he was going to break Sasaki's spine with the way he was cranking his hips up. They stood back up with 30 seconds left in the round, they traded a few punches, and Reis took down Sasaki again to finish the round. Reis is clearly winning this fight, but Sasaki is proving to be extremely durable.
     They mostly stood and traded with each other to start the third round, and Reis clipped Sasaki with some HARD punches, knocking his head back in the process, before taking Sasaki to the ground again 2 minutes into the round. He tried to take Sasaki's back again, and Sasaki was able to stand back up against the fence, while still trying to figure out a way to apply a Kimura. Reis took down Sasaki again with 90 seconds left in the round. After a wild scramble, Sasaki took Reis's back with a minute left in the round, and he blasted him with some brutal elbows to the side of the head. Sasaki probably stole that round with the wild attacks at the end of the round, but this fight should still clearly goes to Reis for dominating the first two rounds. All 3 judges agreed, giving the unanimous decision to Reis, 29-28 across the board.

Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)

      Reis was supposed to fight for the title tonight, but Demetrious Johnson was injured, so they threw Reis down on the undercard against some no-name dude on short notice. Sandoval came out, blasted Reis with some big punches, it looked like he had him rocked, but Reis took him down with an explosive double leg, grabbed his back, went for a rear-naked choke, Sandoval stood up out of it, threw Reis to the ground, got on top, there was a scramble, and Reis took Sandoval down again with a trip from the clinch. He took his back, flattened him out, and finished the fight in under 2 minutes with a rear-naked choke. Solid finish for Wilson Reis, but I'm still not sure why he was scheduled to fight for the title tonight. Demetrious Johnson would maul this guy. I barely even have Reis ranked in the Top 10. (I had him ranked as the #10 Flyweight going into this fight) As for Sandoval, I'd be interested in him fighting someone outside of the Top 10. I wish Chico Camus was still in the UFC for guys like this.

Decision

      That was an interesting opening round, with Ortiz beating up Reis a little bit on the feet, but Reis was able to grind him to the ground a few times, controlling most of the grappling. I think I have to give the first round to Wilson Reis. The second round again had Ortiz beating up Reis on the feet, but Ortiz is kind of stupid, because he kept shooting for takedowns, which Reis consistently reversed on him. Ortiz is NOT the better grappler, so why the fuck does he keep shooting for takedowns, when he's failing every one of them, AND while he's winning on the feet? Reis shot for a slick takedown in the final minute of the round, immediately grabbing the back of Ortiz. Reis slowly started to sink in the rear-naked choke, and then transitioned into a tight armbar with 10 seconds left in the round, but Ortiz was saved by the bell. Ortiz HAS to finish this fight in the third round if he wants to win it. Ortiz came out swinging in that final round, but Reis once again took him down and grabbed his back, but Ortiz did a good job standing back up, but Reis took him right back down and grabbed his back again. Ortiz got back to his feet somehow. Reis absolutely dominated Ortiz in this fight with his grappling. Reis mounted Ortiz's back with one minute left in the fight, and he punched him in the head a lot. Ortiz's ring IQ is very low. Great dominating unanimous decision victory for Wilson Reis.

Decision
15:00
      In my opinion, these guys were technically fighting for a spot in the Top 5 at 125, so it was kind of an important fight, but as is a recurring problem at 125, this fight was kind of boring. I thought Silva won at least the first two rounds, and maybe even the third round, by showing slightly better striking & wrestling. Reis didn't ever really even seem like he WANTED to win this fight. When he really NEEDED to finish the fight in the third round, all he did was clinch, and stall. So yeah, pretty boring fight, but congrats to Silva for his third win in a row.

Submission (Arm-Triangle Choke)
3:28
      This was a pretty awesome fight between a couple of guys fighting their way into the Top 10 at 125. Scott Jorgensen failed to make weight coming into this fight, so that was disappointing, but I guess it didn't make a difference, because after a solid start by Jorgensen, Reis quickly reversed the tide, and took Jorgensen to the ground after landing a huge kick to the body that broke the rib of Jorgensen. Once they were on the ground, it didn't take long for Reis to lock on an arm-triangle choke, forcing Jorgensen to submit. Pretty great fight, and huge win for Wilson Reis.

     This was a good showing for Wilson Reis, as he pretty much dominated Sanchez in the first and ESPECIALLY the third round, with his grappling. Sanchez won the second round by turning it up a notch, and outstriking Reis, but ultimately, this fight was Wilson's fight to lose, and he ended up winning via unanimous decision, 29-28.

Decision (Split)

      This fight was ok. Another really close fight that could have gone either way. I honestly would have declared it a draw, so I was fine with the decision going either way. Both guys had a comparable amount of time on top, when they were on the ground, and the striking was pretty similar, just overall, very close fight. Alcantara wins via split-decision.

      This fight wasn't all that exciting, but it was a pretty solid debut for Wilson Reis. He took Menjivar down in all 3 rounds, completely controlled the fight, won all 3 rounds, 30-27, and all 3 judges gave the fight to Reis, 29-28. Not much else to say really, other than solid win for Reis.

      Dantas came out for his Bellator debut, and kicked the shit out of Reis. I mean he actually threw a ton of kicks, and knocked Reis off balance several times. Dantas apparently poked Reis in the eye, and Reis called timeout, but the referee told them to keep fighting because he didn't see anything. Reis eventually clinched with Dantas from behind, while throwing knees to his ass. Dantas seemed completely lost at that point. The referee finally broke them up, and told them to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! From there, Dantas went back to throwing those kicks, blasting Reis with some hard shots. I scored round one for Dantas. Dantas continued to pick apart Reis in the second round with crisp punches & kicks. One minute in, Dantas threw a flying knee, that looked like it might have hit Reis's chest, but it had 100% of Dantas's weight behind it, so it knocked Reis on his ass, where Dantas finished him off with punches on the ground. Awesome Bellator debut for Eduardo Dantas, against a tough fighter in Wilson Reis.

KO (Punches)

      The first round had both guys standing & trading, with Pitbull landing some of the hardest shots, which lead me to score the first round in favor of Pitbull. Reis finally got the fight to the ground in the second round, and beat up Pitbull on the ground a little bit, but Pitbull got back up halfway through the round. From there, Pitbull was working for a standing guillotine, but Reis took him down again. Pitbull refused to let go of the choke, as he stood back up. Pitbull looked a little more aggressive at the end of the round, but that round probably could have gone either way. I have it all tied up going into the final round, just to keep it interesting. They continued to trade strikes for the duration of the final round, until Pitbull really started to tee off on Reis, knocking him the fuck out with some MASSIVE bombs. Patricio Pitbull is a beast.

Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)

      These guys traded punches for 30 seconds or so, mostly just testing the waters, and then Reis slaughtered George, with a barrage of punches, some knees, a takedown, George tried to work for something from his guard for a second, which was a bad idea against Reis. Reis then punched George with some jackhammer style punches, beating the fuck out of him before locking on a tight rear-naked choke for the submission victory. That was a VERY impressive performance by Wilson Reis, against a no-name opponent.

      The first round of this fight had a lot of clinching, with Reis holding control for most of the round. The second round was another round of clinching, with both fighters landing a few decent shots throughout the round. The final round was more of the same, with Reis controlling most of the fight from the clinch, resulting in what should probably be a 30-27 decision for Reis. For some reason, the judges have it split, 29-28, with two judges giving the fight to Wilson Reis.

Decision

      The first round was a little slow paced. Reis secured a takedown in the first round, and after a couple of minutes, Pitbull rolled over to get into top position, and then they stood up, and Reis shot for another takedown, but Pitbull sprawled, and ended up back on top. Reis secured one more takedown at the end of the round, but Pitbull was back on his feet one second later. I guess that first round is a draw? Pitbull was finally able to work some strikes in the second round, including a some nice flying knees & kicks to the body, and he continued to defend well enough against the takedown attempts from Reis, so I scored the second round in favor of Pitbull. The final round started, they traded strikes for a minute or so, and then Pitbull slammed Reis to the ground. They stood back up, and Pitbull continued to outstrike Reis for the rest of the fight, leading to a clear 29-28 scorecard in favor of Pitbull, if not 30-27. All 3 judges gave him the fight as well for the unanimous decision.

Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)

      This fight started with these guys clinching, and it looked like Lierley was doing well for himself, until 90 seconds in, when Reis put Lierley on his ass against the cage. From there, Reis passed guard, and got the full mount. He postured up, landed some punches, fell back for an armbar, failed miserably, and Lierley got back to his feet. They continued to scramble wildly for the rest of the round, with Reis ending up on Lierley's back, digging for the rear-naked choke. Round one goes to Reis. Lierley was definitely making it a fight though.
     The second round had Reis controlling Lierley with his wrestling for the duration of the round, beating him up on the ground a little bit, while Lierley tried to defend himself with his guard. The final round had Reis taking Lierley down immediately, he pinned him against the cage again, continued to dominate him with his wrestling, Lierley eventually gave up his back, and Reis finished him with the rear-naked choke. Another solid performance by Wilson Reis.

      Wilson Reis started this fight by immediately shooting for a takedown, but Vargas did a good job wrestling with him, so they both flipped around, scrambling all over the place, trading various ground positions for the first half of the round, before Vargas locked on a ruthless looking guillotine choke, but Reis escaped. Vargas ended up in top position, Reis flipped him over, Vargas flipped him over, lots of back & forth ground work in the first round. That round could have maybe gone either way, but I scored it for Reis, for finishing the round on Vargas's back, punching him in the head. The fight went to the ground again to start the second round, and Reis immediately grabbed Vargas's back, to continue where he left off at the end of the first. Vargas was able to spin out of it halfway through the round, ending up on top inside Reis's guard. The referee eventually stood them back up. Vargas beat up Reis a little bit while standing, before taking him to the ground, and sitting on him, but Reis flipped him over and ended the round on top again. I would probably give that round to Vargas, but it could possibly go either way. Reis started the final round shooting for a takedown, Vargas caught him in a guillotine, and they continued to push each other around, with Reis grabbing Vargas's back again. This fight could have maybe gone either way, but in the end, I scored it slightly in favor of Reis, 29-28. Two of the judges agreed, giving him the hard fought split-decision victory.

      Reis shot for several takedowns in the first round, failed with all of them, and Soto spent the round picking him apart on the feet, and making him look foolish for shooting for desperate takedowns. The second round was the same story, with Soto stuffing all of Reis's shots, while he continued to pick him apart on the feet. The final round was the same thing, with Soto showing outstanding takedown defense, while he continued to pick apart Reis on the feet. 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Joe Soto.

      Martinez went for the clinch immediately, and slammed Reis to the ground, but Reis quickly flipped him over, got on top, and then stood back up. They clinched for a while, not a lot was happening, and then Martinez took Reis down again, and then Reis flipped him over and grabbed his back. Martinez secured a couple of takedowns in that first round, but Reis always ended up on top, so, I'm giving that round to Reis. The second round was the same thing, with Martinez trying to take the fight to the ground, and always ending up on the bottom. Martinez had a few moments to shine, where he landed a few decent shots, but for the most part, Reis is pretty clearly up, 2-0, going into the final round. The final round was another round full of Reis on top, leading to a 30-27 unanimous decision victory for Wilson Reis.

      Reis immediately shot for a takedown, landing in Cullum's guard. After scrambling around on the ground for a little while, they stood back up, and Reis secured another takedown. Cullum stood back up against the cage, and Reis took him back down again. The second round was the same story, with Reis taking Cullum down, and dominating him on the ground. Halfway through the round, Cullum flipped him over and ended up on top, landing a few punches from inside Reis's guard. Reis went for an armbar, but Cullum escaped, and continued to beat him up. Reis flipped him over, and ended up on top for the final minute of the round. Reis is ahead 2-0 so far.
      The third round looked like it might take place on the feet, but Reis secured another takedown 30 seconds into the round. Cullum eventually got back to his feet and landed some decent knees to the body from inside the clinch. Reis took him down again. They scrambled, and Cullum ended up on top, beating up Reis from inside his guard. Reis went for another armbar, and used that to get back on top of Cullum. Cullum flipped him over and got back on top at the end of the round.
      The fourth round had Cullum stalking Reis on the feet for a minute, before Reis secured another takedown. Reis spent most of the round in top position, as Cullum was looking for armbars from his back. Cullum is putting up a pretty decent fight, but I have Reis ahead, 4-0 going into the final round. Cullum needs a finish if he wants to win. The final round was more of the same, with Reis wrestling the shit out of Cullum up against the cage. Solid performance by Wilson Reis, as he becomes the first & only EliteXC Bantamweight Champion.

      Reis started this fight throwing bombs, and Robbins clinched with him, Reis tried to take him down, Robbins sprawled, and Reis pushed through it, completing the takedown against the cage. Reis moved into side control, and continued to show a pretty clear dominance on the ground with his grappling, moving into full mount just 90 seconds into the fight. Reis went for a triangle choke, transitioned into a tight armbar, Robbins twisted out of it, and right back into a triangle choke. Reis is a beast on the ground. Reis eventually gave that up, and landed some punches to the head of Robbins, as he still had him tied up with his legs. Robbins tried to roll out of trouble, gave up his back, Reis locked on a tight rear-naked choke, and finished the fight via submission just past the 4 minute mark of the first round. Really strong performance by Wilson Reis.

      Reis came out like an animal, throwing bombs, and then he took Makovsky to the ground. They rolled around, and it looked like Reis might be going for a calf slicer, and then they continued to wrestled around, with Reis ending up back on top. Makovsky turned over, and Reis took his back. Makovsky turned to his back again, and Reis unloaded some punches from full mount. That first round was a one-sided ass beating being delivered by Reis, as he landed some really hard shots from various dominant positions on the ground, and then he went for an armbar at the end of the round, but Makovsky slammed his way out of that. Reis slaughtered Makovsky with punches to start the second round, and then shot in for another takedown, once again, immediately going to full mount. From there, he postured up, and landed some hard punches, before moving in for an arm-triangle choke, which he locked on tight, finishing the fight via submission early in the second round. Really strong performance by Wilson Reis.
