Couture responds with a leg kick of his own. Iaquinta keeps connecting with punches to the body, but he lets his hands down every time he goes for it.

Round 2 – Iaquinta lands a nice right hand over the top. Couture eats a leg kick, gets swept but shoots for a single leg. Iaquinta stuffs it. Couture’s mouth is open and as he backs away from the punches he lets his hands down by his hips. Iaquinta is throwing leather here and is landing hard. Iaquinta rocks Couture with a right hand that sends him backing up. Couture shoots for another single but gets stuffed again. Iaquinta ducks as if he’s going for a body shot but throws a high kick that connects. Couture is eating a decent amount of punishment— as I type this he took a combo from Iaquinta that ended with a high kick. Couture blocks a lunging jab. Another one of Iaquinta’s jabs are blocked but he follows up with a successful leg kick. Once again, 10 seconds left and Iaquinta lands another takedown. 10-9 Iaquinta.

Iaquinta quickly recovers and they’re back standing. Iaquinta is back in the middle of the octagon, controlling where the fight goes once again. Couture hits a flying knee that may have stunned Iaquinta and now Couture is pressing the action while Iaquinta backs up. Not even 10 seconds later, Iaquinta is back on the offensive end. Another one of Iaquinta’s takedowns get stuffed but Iaquinta is taking advantage of this one and makes Couture take some heavy shots. Couture can take a beating; I haven’t seen him wobble once. Iaquinta connects with an elbow, and of course, he wobbles. I cursed him. After another 30 seconds of Iaquinta punishing Couture, the horn sounds. 10-9 Iaquinta.

Krylov is looking for submissions; he has a high guard and has trapped Palelei’s left arm. Krylov eats a couple shots by Palelei and lets go of his left arm. Palelei gets into full mount, doesn’t connect with anything and Krylov gives up his back. Palelei gives it up and they’re back standing. Krylov went right after and threw some decent bombs; Soa is very tired. Krylov is looking to go back to the ground and gives up his back again; he stands back up and is looking for a standing kimura. Soa powers through it and takes Krylov down again. Krylov is very crafty off his back, but it’s not really leading to anything since Palelei is so strong and powers out of a lot of holds. Palelei is now in side control and Krylov slapped on a weird neck crank that brought the crowd to their feet, but Palelei slipped out of it. Horn sounds. Palelei 10-9.

Round 2 – Palelei was breathing heavy in the corner. Krylov opens up with a head kick that doesn’t connect. Palelei lands another takedown. Both men are moving a bit slugish.

Round 1 – Kang tries to touch gloves, but Camus is having none of that. Kang’s high kicks are quick, but out of the two thrown none have connected. Kang goes for a leg kick but Camus counters with a right that connects softly. Kang lands a right of his own. Kang’s timing in his takedown attempt was perfect; Camus is now on his back.

Kang stands up and towers over Camus again, almost gets head kicked and goes back down into Camus’ half guard. Camus rolls him over and is now in the dominant position, on top! More than halfway through the second round, he needs to do some work and steal the round. Camus is throwing short elbows in Kang’s guard.

They’re both back to their feet. Gaudinot hits an inside leg kick of his own, then another. Gaudinot presses Elliot against the cage and hits a knee to the body. Elliot separates and connects with a couple of punches. Elliot tries a weird rolling move and grabs Gaudinot’s ankle, but nothing comes of it and he’s back to his feet. Elliot lands some nice knees, a nice punch and takes Gaudinot down. Impressive. Elliot is in Gaudinot’s guard and is repeatedly connecting with hammerfists, but they don’t have KO power behind them. He’s scoring points. Elliot stands over Gaudinot, stomps his belly and Gaudinot is standing again. Elliot is all over Gaudinot, switching between knees and punches until he lands another takedown. Gaudinot looks defeated, he needs to really pull it together in the second round. The round ends with Elliot on top, throwing punches. 10-9 Elliot.

Round 2 – Elliot is throwing some unorthodox strikes here. Within the first 30 second she threw a straight kick and a dropkick. Interesting. We’re right back where we were in the first with Elliot controlling where the fight is going, which is usually with Gaudinot’s back against the cage and Elliot throwing bombs. Gaudinot whiffs with a spinning heel kick. Elliot throws another jumping front kick and swiftly ducks under Gaudinot’s hook. Gaudinot finally connects with a kick of his own. Gaudinot’s nose is all sorts of busted up. Gaudinot gets taken down after missing a hook. Elliot, once again, is reigning down strikes on Gaudinot. He’s 4 for 4 with takedown attempts tonight. Elliot is alternating between elbowing Gaudinot’s head and stomach. Gaudinot is eating shots, but isn’t in any danger. I can see the round ending with Elliot on top of him, throwing some bombs. Horn sounds, end of Round 2. 10-9 Elliot.

Round 3 – Not even 20 seconds into the round and Gaudinot already got taken down. Gaudinot wall walks up but he has taken about 6 knees to the thigh. They’re back in the middle of the octagon and Gaudinot executes a nice high kick, but he’s right back on the ground. Elliot is now on top, in a familiar position, punching Gaudinot in the skull. Elliot is working on the ground, so he isn’t giving Herb Dean a chance to stand them up. They remain on the ground until the round ends. 10-9 Elliot.

Tim Elliot def. Louis Gaudinot via. Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-26)


Round 1 – First significant strikes of the fights and serious leg kicks from Varner. They’re alternating who has octagon control; long feeling out process. Varner connects with a lunging left hook, and Tibau answers with a right straight. Tibau may have stunned Varner with a right hook. Varner has recovered if he was stunned, and connects with a body punch. Varner leaps in and Tibau catches him with a right hook. Tibau secures a takedown and is manhandling him on the ground, dragging him wherever he wants and smothering him. Varner is back to his feet but Tibau’s hands are still wrapped around him. Very close round. 10-9 Varner.

Round 2 – Varner is bouncing around on his feet, and Tibau’s are set flat. Varner went for a knee and missed, Tibau powers through a takedown and almost falls into a guillotine but escapes; Tibau is in Varner’s half guard. Tibau is looking for the head and arm, which gives Tibau control and the chance of sinking in a head and arm triangle. Tibau had full mount for a hot second, but Varner gave up his back and Tibau’s back to mount. This is a good position for Tibau who is easily getting in position for the head and arm choke. Varner is eating a couple hammerfists. Varner tries to escape by giving up his back but Tibau secures full mount again. Varner once again gives up his back and Tibau has both hooks in, with his back against the cage. Varner is flattened out, and Tibau once again gets full mount. Varner is simply holding out for the third round. Horn sounds. 10-9 Tibau.

Round 3 – The first round was so close, judges could have given it to Tibau. Varner SHOULD go for broke here. Varner throws the first strike of the round and it’s a blocked right straight. Tibau eats a shot to the body. Good shot by Varner, there. Tibau ducks a punch and secures yet another takedown. Varner scrambles and is back to his feet; all he needs to do is separate Tibau’s hands. He does. Varner misses a straight right, but lands the left hook. Tibau eats a couple shots to the body. And another. Tibau catches Varner on the chin with a left, but Varner doesn’t slow down and he shoots for a takedown. Tibau defends. Varner shoots again and takes him down! Varner is on top of Tibau throwing hard elbows and punches. 1 minute 30 seconds left; plenty of time for Varner to capitalize. He’s switching between body and head shots but he’s not using those to set anything up. He may think he has a chance to pull of a decision win. Varner seems to be holding his position and hoping for a decision win. Horn sounds. 10-9 Varner.
