Shane Del Rosario vs. Stipe Miocic:
Miocic starts the first moving forward while Rosario content to throw kicks. Miocic unafraid of the striking game of Shane and answers with a few solid combinations of his own. Shane working the body well with kicks. Shane goes high with a kick that lands than follows it up with a straight left that staggers his opponent but Miocic circles out and resets. After a few exchanges Shane lands a solid left that backs up Stipe, he runs across the cage swinging away but Miocic isn’t going anywhere and stays standing. 20 seconds left in the round and Stipe clinches and takes him down but opts to let him back up and the round ends shortly thereafter.

The second opens up with a lot of more kicks from Shane but Miocic throwing big punches. 45-seconds into the second Miocic grabs a leg, takes him down and tries to work from top position. At the 3:30 mark Shane is still on his back and Stipe lands a few hammer fists to the face of the Huntington Beach native. At the midway point Shane is still on his back and Stipe is landing short elbows and the blood starts to flow.

Antonio Silva vs. Cain Velasquez:
The crowd is wild for the former champ, Bigfoot throws a low kick but Cain grabs it and takes him down fast. He maintains top position and triest to work some distance so he can land some strikes from the half guard position he rests in. A short elbow lands and Bigfoot is gushing blood. The ref jumps in and halts the action so the doctor can check the cut but the doc is OK with letting the fight continue and the ref puts Cain back on top. The ref signals go and Cain unleashes punches. Midway through the round and Cain is Tee’ing off on the Brazilian. Bigfoot shrimps up and Cain goes to the back and continues to punch away. Silva goes back to his back and Cain continues to land until the ref pushes him off and stops the bout. Cain is back!

Champ Junior Dos Santos vs. Frank Mir (for heavyweight title):
The fight opens up and they posture but 15 seconds in and Mir shoots for the takedown, he presses the single with all he has but Dos Santos will not give in and scrambles out. The go back to the center and trade shots but nothing significant. The jab of JDS is finding its home but it’s a real tentative pace two minutes in. Midway through the first round and it’s still a real tentative pace. JDS slowly picking him a part but not committing to any combinations or flurries. With 20 seconds left in the round Mir gets hit hard with a right hand that wobbled him big time. The 10 seconds blocks knock and JDS unloads but doesn’t have enough time to seal the deal and the bell sounds.

One minute into the seconds and not much action but shortly after JDS lands and drops Mir. He lets Mir back up wanting nothing of the ground with his opponent. Mir gets back up but at this point the only real offense is coming from the champ, Mir seems content to just stand in front of him and use his face to block the jab. A big right from JDS and Mir dropped again. JDS pounces on him lands some shots but decides to get back up. Mir doesn’t follow, roles over and JDS goes in for another shot but the ref jumps in and stops it.
