Nostradumbass here on a rare play-by-play appearance. Let's get this over with.
145 lbs.: Daniel Weichel vs. Desmond Green
Round one: Touch of gloves and Danny paws the jab. Green lands a stiff jab of his own. Danny gets warned for fingers to the eyes in a striking exchange. Green shoots and gets stuffed. Danny pops him with a right. Green gets tagged over the top and shoots but it's stuffed. Some more strikes are thrown and now it's Danny who shoots and gets denied. Green gets a big takedown with a minute left in the round but Danny right back to his feet. Green hangs on to his waist and knees the thighs. That's the bell. 10-9 Green on the takedown.
Round two: Green throws a low kick and gets ROCKED. Green stumbles backward and gets tagged again. Danny blows the opportunity by going for a choke and Green escapes back to his feet. Green gets popped again and get dropped but Danny again goes for a sub. But without a dominant position all he's doing is letting Green recover. Green inexplicably gives up his back and gets choked out for his efforts.
Final Result: Weichel def. Green via submission (rear-naked choke)
170 lbs.: Marius Zaromskis vs. Vaughn Anderson
Round one: Andy bouncing around and they trade combos. They clinch but break away. Zarom with a 1-2. Then another. Andy stalking. Both guys throwing a lot of punches, but not much landing. A byproduct of jabbing from eight feet away, straight-up Matt Riddle style. Zarom gets clipped with a short right and stumbles. Them eats a body kick. He returns a low kick then eats a foot to the gut. Zarom with a head kick that swings wiide. HUGE body shot that drops Andy. Zarom doesn't pounce and lets Andy off the hook. Bizarre strategy. Ref stands him up with 15 seconds to go. They slug it out until the bell. 10-9 Zaromskis?
Round two: Andy stalking. Leg kick is checked. Punches in bunches but nothing lands clean. They clinch and break. Nice leg kick by Andy. Zarom lands a foot square in the jewels. Quick break in the action. Flying knee by Zarom but it does nothing. Andy fires back with a body kick. Nice combo from Whitemare. Then a leg kick. Another flying knee and he whiffs. Zarom starting to find his range and is connecting. Big low kick and Andy winces on impact. Andy shoots and Zarom sprawls before letting him up. 10 seconds left and Zarom throws everything he has including a late somersault kick. 10-9 Zaromskis.
Round three: Andy eats a jab then a huge head kick. He's on his bicycle now and Zarom chasing him down. Andy dives for a takedown and gets denied. Zarom lets him up. Andy getting bombed with leg kicks. Flying knee misses and Whitemare sails into the fence but remains upright. Would have been funny if he flew right through the wall like Scott Smith and Bobby Southworth back in the day. Assuming no one got hurt, of course. Andy put on his back but Zarom won't join him on the floor. Andy gets up and gets tooled in the stand up. Spinning back fist just misses for Zaromskis. Another low kick lands. Superman punch gets nothing. Andy dumped on his ass and eats ground-and-pound until the bell. 10-9 Zaromskis.
Final Result: Marius Zaromski def. Vaughn Anderson via unanimous decision
265 lbs.: Nick Rossborough vs. Raphael Butler
Round one: Sorry folks got in late on this one. Butler in the turtle position getting wailed on. He tries to roll over and Ross takes his back. Butler trying to sneak out the back door but Ross stops him and hunts for the choke. Butler has wrist control but is still in danger. Ross switches to a crank. Annnnnnnd Butler bashes him with his head and the action is halted. Here comes the doctor. Replay shows a flagrant headbutt. Ross takes a few minutes to recover and Butler loses a point. Wow ref is not putting them back on the floor and makes them restart on the feet. Holy shit. Butler gets rocked and they both start swinging for the fences. Now Ross is rocked. Blitzkrieg to the bell. 10-8 Ross.
Round two: Butler comes out swinging. They clinch and go to the cage. Butler dumps Ross on his ass and tries to pin him in the corner. Ross wall walking and eating punches from the top. Both guys are exhausted and the action comes to a crawl. Heavyweights, y'all. Butler dropping intermittent elbows. No action at all and ref does nothing. Boo birds chirping loudly in Rama. Butler positions for the arm lock but can't get it. He re-adjusts and pulls Ross away from the cage but instead goes for punches from north/south. More resting. Ross looks like a heavy bag that fell off its chain. BREAKING NEWS: This fight sucks. Ref stands them up with 18 seconds left. Better late than never I suppose. They lazily swing until the bell. Butler 10-9.
Round three: Ross eats a jab. Butler chases him down and they just kind of collapse to the floor. Ross has nothing left. Ugh make it stop. Butler throwing weak punches and Ross clings to a leg. Butler rolls him over and lays on top of him and the crowd is killing them. This is embarrassing. Butler has side control but is doing nothing. WAKE UP REF. Butler punches the rib. Butler rolls him over to the other side and just lays there. I'm firing Alex when he gets back for sticking me with this assignment. Butler is yelling something at the ref but it's unintelligible. Someone is grunting off screen. Holy shit this is going to a draw. 10-9 Butler.
Final result: Nick Rossborough and Raphael Butler fight to a majority draw
160 lbs.: Eric Wisely vs. John Alessio
Round one: 30 seconds in and nothing has happened. Wisely on the run. He throws a leg kick and keeps running. Alessio gets a hold of him and taked him down. Closed guard but Alessio landing elbows. Someone in the crowd yells something that gets a cheer. Alessio grinding him up on the ground. Wisely is cut. More elbows from the top. Looks like this round is going to be spent in this position which means an easy 10-9 for the veteran. Not much happening but at least he's staying busy. 10-9 Alessio.
Round two: 90 seconds down and two strikes have been thrown. Wisely running around doing nothing. Alessio getting frustrated with all the running. Crowd getting restless. Head kick from Alessio blocked. Low kick lands. Then another. Wisely lunges in wild and hits nothing, then gets back on his scooter. Big overhand right from Wisely that swings wide. Alessio rushes him and tries to bully him into the cage but is unsuccessful. This fight sucks. 10-9 Alessio
Round three: Alessio wants none of the running and shoots. They go to the wall and jockey for position. It takes some time but he finally puts Wisely on the mat. Nice shoulder strikes from Alessio. So this is essentially a replay from round one. Alessio, the bigger fighter (by a lot), is working from half guard and dropping elbows, roughing Wisely up but not really coming close to a finish. Alessio punching the thigh, not that he needs the points. "Boring" chants can be heard from the crowd. Round ends with Alessio on top looking busy. 10-9 Alessio.
Final Result: Alessio def. Wisely via unanimous decision
