TV fights (9-10 PM ET on Spike):
Nate Diaz beat Rory Markham by TKO (strikes) at 2;47 of round 1.*
Ricardo Almeida beat Matt Brown by submission (rear naked choke) at 3:20 of round 2.
PPV (10 PM-1 AM ET):
Jim Miller beat Mark Bocek by unanimous decision, 3 29-28s.
R1: 10-9 Miller. Close at first until Bocek got a slam at halfway but Miller took it with a kimura that nearly made Bocek tap, but somehow he managed to hold out. All Miller the last 90 seconds or so to take it.
R2: 10-8 Bocek. All Bocek from an early slam, didn’t do much at first but maintained control and once he got into mount he came close to nearly getting a rear naked choke several times. Miller got a bit of a slam trying to escape at the end of the round but impressive in surviving. Miller may have done too little for 10-9.
R3: 10-10. Very close. Early on it was even but Bocek got a late takedown and appeared to have it until Miller got the back and tried to get in a quick salvo with only 5 seconds or so left. Too close to call, I have it a super-close 29-28 Bocek.
Jon Fitch beat Ben Saunders by unanimous decision, 3 30-27s.**
R1: 10-9 Fitch. Typical Jon Fitch, land a decent standing shot (low kick), take them down, control and grind away. Boring yet effective. Close to 10-8 but Saunders did just enough to prevent it at the end.
R2: 10-9 Fitch. Lather, rinse, repeat. Only difference was a standup late in the round.
R3: 10-9 Fitch. You know the routine by now, effective but boring. Par for the course, another 30-27.
Kurt Pellegrino beat Fabricio Camoes by submission (rear naked choke) at 4:20 of round 2.
R1: 10-9 Pellegrino. Camoes nearly finished it early on but once Pellegrino spiked him to break a standing rear naked choke he rocked Camoes there and took control from there, getting his own near-choke and then controlled the rest of the round on the ground.
R2: All Pellegrino, nowhere near as much action as the first round until the end, when Pellegrino got the choke and Camoes eventually had to tap. Dominant performance by Pellegrino.
Shane Carwin beat Frank Mir by KO at 3:48 of round 1 to become the Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion. Not much early but Carwin mainly controlled standup. After a breakup and another clinch a left uppercut started it all and Carwin started rapid-fire punching and not letting up until he had punched his ticket for a shot at Brock Lesnar, possibly on July 3.
Rousimar Palhares beat Tomasz Drwal by submission (heel hook) in 45 seconds. This was a prelim that aired on PPV. Nothing for the first 35 seconds, then Drwal attempts a front kick but slips and falls. Palhares immediately mounts then quickly gets a heel hook in. Drwal immediately taps and screams in agony as the heel hook was held for a few seconds before the stoppage.
UFC Welterweight Champion Georges. St. Pierre beat Dan Hardy by unanimous decision, 50-43, 50-44, 50-45, to retain the title.
R1: 10-8 GSP. It took about 30 seconds for GSP to get the first takedown and pretty much control the round. Nearly finished it in the final 20-40 seconds with an armbar which Hardy somehow managed to escape from. GSP was dominant enough for a 10-8 in my eyes.
R2: 10-9 GSP. Another mostly dominant round by GSP but it stayed on the feet a bit longer. Hardy was able to get in a couple decent shots late in the round but still had virtually nothing on the ground, even in the one time where he had mount briefly.
R3: 10-9 GSP. Pretty much a repeat of round 1 with less submission attempts.
R4: 10-8 GSP. Round 1 all over again, but Hardy gets credit for escaping a kimura he seemingly was going to tap to. Not giving up even though it’s 99.9% over.
R5: 10-8 GSP. See rounds 1 & 4 but give Hardy a lot of credit for not giving up and hanging in to the end despite being totally overmatched. Much more lopsided than I expected. Only question is the final score, I have it a ridiculous 50-42 GSP.
Jared Hamman beat Rodney Wallace by unanimous decision, 3 29-28s. This was a prelim that aired after the main event (had roughly 25 minutes left). Confuseyus scored it 29-28 Hamman.
*-Markham missed weight at the weigh-ins. He could not lose the needed weight in 1 hour (6 pounds) and will be fined 12.5% of his fight purse, which means at least $1000.
**-Fitch faces Saunders after Thiago Alves was forced off due to a brain irregularity. Jake Ellenberger was bumped off the card as a result of Fitch-Saunders happening. Ellenberger will be paid what he would’ve gotten if he won his fight with Saunders (probably somewhere between $12,000-$20,000).
Alves update: Exploratory outpatient surgery is scheduled for Wednesday for a malformation on his brain. No bleeding or aneurysm was found and the condition is not career-ending. Alves is targeting UFC 114 in May as a return date.
Fantasy record: 8-2. Best mark in several events!
Next up: UFC Fight Night 21 on Wednesday. Main event is Kenny Florian vs. Takanori Gomi.
