Prelims on Facebook (Facebook.com/UFC)
Featherweight bout: Raphael Assuncao (18-4) def. Issei Tamura (7-3) via TKO (strikes) at :25 of Round Two. Highlight reel finish indeed.
Welterweight bout: Marcelo Guimaraes (8-0) def. Dan Stittgen (7-3) via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28). Close fight.
Flyweight bout: Chris Cariaso (14-3) def. Josh Ferguson (8-5) via unanimous decision (30-27 across the board). Fun fight.
Middleweight bout: Andrew Craig (8-0) def. Rafael Natal (14-4-1) via head kick knockout at 4:52 of Round Two. Awesome comeback by Craig in a fight Natal was dominant in.
Bantamweight bout: Bruce Leroy (7-5) aka Alex Caceres def. Damacio Page (15-8) via submission (triangle choke) at 1:27 of Round Two. Excellent submission skill shown by Caceres, who has improved significantly since his days on The Ultimate Fighter.
Main Card on FUEL TV
Lightweight bout: Rafael dos Anjos (17-6) def. Anthony Njokuani (15-7, 1 NC) via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).
Dominant fight boy Dos Anjos.
Middleweight bout: Francis Carmont (19-7) def. Karlos Vemola (9-3) via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:39 of Round Two.
Vemola showed great toughness, but Carmont had a great well-rounded attack, capped off by a crucifix into a rear naked choke.
Bantamweight bout: The Ultimate Fighter 14 finalist T.J. Dillashaw (6-1) def. Vaughan Lee (12-8-1) via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:33 of Round One.
Dillashaw was relentless and continues to shine as one of the hottest prospects at 135lbs.
Welterweight bout: Aaron Simpson (12-3) def. Kenny Robertson (11-2) via unanimous decision (30-27, 28-29, 29-28).
Simply, Simpson outwrestled him.
Light heavyweight bout: James Te Huna (15-5) def. Joey Beltran (14-8) via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27).
Beltran wouldn't go down, despite not knowing where he was at before Round Two. As always, Beltran showed tremendous heart and toughness. However, he not only looked gun shy since the Lavar Johnson fight, but can't be taking those kinds of shots to the head. Fight of The Night in my opinion.
