Moosin "Gods of Martial Arts fight recaps:
Jeremy Jackson here! Time to rock and roll, Maniacs!
Tim Sylvia vs. Marius Pudzianowski
Fight recap: Sylvia is listed at 260. Nice try, guys. Pudzianowski is serenaded to the cage by a Polish rapper. The fighters' respective anthems are sung and it's time to get it on. Big leg kick by Marius and he's going for the takedown. He's got it! Sylvia gets back to his feet and Marius has him clinched against the fence. Sylvia lands some shots and a knee to the body. Marius is looking tired already. Sylvia is controlling the clinch with knees now and Marius is bright red. Hard jab by Tim and he tosses Marius to the mat and lands in guard. Side control for Sylvia and a thoroughly gassed Marius looks to be in big trouble as the round ends.
Big knees by Sylvia and a hard right hand. Pudzianowski is warned for grabbing the fence. Now Marius collapses from a weak-looking uppercut! Sylvia takes side control and starts dropping shots and Marius is tapping enthusiastically. Tim announces that he's back, but in this observer's opinion that has yet to be determined. Marius might want to stick to carrying Volkswagons around. They don't hit back. Sylvia wins by submission to top off an exciting night of action.
Travis Wiuff vs. Josh Barnes
Fight recap: Don't blink, folks. These big boys are swinging. Both fighters trade bombs and Wiuff lands a huge left hook that sends Barnes reeling backwards into the cage. Wiuff pounces and starts dropping unchecked blows to the head. This one is over in a hurry. Wiuff by KO.
Travis Lutter vs. Rafael Natal
Fight recap: Lutter looks doughy. Big surprise. He misses an overhand right and gets clipped with a head kick. Lutter can't get the double-leg and that's a recurring theme in round 1. Lutter looks to already be tiring. Natal catches Lutter with a straight left and smashes him with an uppercut. The finishing ground strikes are elementary. Lutter's crappy conditioning costs him yet again. Natal by KO.
Yves Edwards vs. Mike Campbell
Fight recap: Crisp exchanges. Sweet body kick from Campbell. Campbell pushes forward while Edwards tries to counter. Campbell with a couple leg kicks. Edwards bobs and weaves and shoots in. Campbell reverses him and gets on top but Yves gets up. Campbell gets him down again, slips into half guard. Yves misses a big knee. Campbell's right eye is cut but he looked good in round 1.
Yves comes out firing punches and kicks in round 2. Yves takes Campbell's back. Campbell reverses a rear naked choke attempt and both fighters spring to their feet. Big slam for Edwards and he's got Campbell's back once more. Again Campbell turns out of it. Campbell lands a left hook. Now they're exchanging some hard strikes. Edwards probably takes round 2. Good fight.
Edwards jukes and jives while Campbell presses. Now Edwards is the aggressor. He lands a couple punches and misses a knee. Campbell elects to attempt a single-leg, but Edwards defends and ends up on top. Campbell sweeps him and briefly gains top position. Edwards with a half-piledriver and the fight ends on the ground. Another ridiculously close fight. I give the edge to Edwards but the judges disagree. Unanimous decision for Campbell.
Tara LaRosa vs. Roxy Modafferi
Fight recap: Roxy looks slow and tentative. LaRosa lands a right hand. La Rosa clinches Roxy against the cage but can't secure the takedown. Now Roxy has Tara pinned against the fence. Tara finally gets back to her feet. Tara lands a nice punch but Roxy lands her own BIG shot to end the round.
Roxy gets a takedown early in round 2. Now both fighters are very tentative on their feet. Roxy lands a knee to the body and now LaRosa finds a home for a hard three-punch combination. Takedown for Larosa.
LaRosa counters Roxy and drops her with a right hand early in round 3. Roxy sinks in a triangle form the bottom! After an eternity Tara escapes. Now Tara gets a takedown. The fight ends with both combatants stalled against the cage. Very tough to call. The judges award Roxy the split decision victory.
