Pedro Munhoz vs. Frankie Edgar: Bantamweight
Winner: Frankie Edgar
Winning Method: Frankie Edgar wins by split decision (48-47, 46-49, 48-47).
It was a technical and skilled fight with a ton of action, but it’s possible Munhoz just put more power and octagon generalship than his opponent. But it was a very close fight either way, and Edgar did land five more significant strikes than his opponent 127-122. Edgar now has wins in three different weight divisions, and the former lightweight champion at 155 now gets a win over a top 10 opponent at age 38 at 135. That’s incredibly impressive.
Marcin Prachnio vs. Mike Rodriguez: Light Heavyweight
Winner: Mike Rodriguez
Winning Method: Mike Rodriguez wins by KO at 2:17 of the first round.
It was all a big elbow, and he didn’t even need to wind up, but Prachnio was out before he hit the canvas. A big win for the -240 favorite with the stoppage.

Austin Hubbard vs. Joe Solecki: Lightweight
Winner: Joe Solecki
Winning Method: Joe Solecki wins by submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:51 of the first round.
A pretty perfect fight from Solecki who controlled everything from the beginning, and gets the choke via crawling up Hubbard’s back to move to 10-2, and 2-0 in the UFC.

Mariya Agapova vs. Shana Dobson: Women’s flyweight
Winner: Shana Dobson
Winning Method: Shana Dobson wins by TKO at 1:38 of the second round.
A massive upset, and another fight on this card with a very dramatic reversal. Agapova dominated the first round, but also might have burned all her energy. And “Danger” Dobson pulls it out of the fire out of nowhere with a mat reversal that turned into some hammerfists.

Daniel Rodriguez vs. Dwight Grant: Welterweight
Winner: Daniel Rodriguez
Winning Method: Daniel Rodriguez wins by TKO at 2:24 of the first round.
An absolutely wild fight in just 144 seconds. Rodriguez looked to be finished earlier and was down, but stayed calm and got off the mat. He then follows up with a pair of left hands that were enough to get the stoppage. A big win for the -230 favorite that will draw some eyeballs.

Amanda Lemos vs. Mizuki Inoue: Women’s Strawweight
Winner: Amanda Lemos
Winning Method: Amanda Lemos wins by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
Lemos moves to 8-1-1 career, and did it with her significant striking ability and a 47-40 lead in that category. But it was the power behind them that separated her, as well as the two takedowns she added.
Ike Villanueva vs. Jordan Wright: Light Heavyweight
Winner: Jordan Wright
Winning Method: Jordan Wright wins by doctor stoppage at 1:31 of the first round.
Some Thai knees opened up a nasty cut right over Villanueva’s eye after a terrific heel spinning kick, and “The Beverly Hills Ninja” now has an 11-0 record with 10 stoppages. We’ll see if he can keep it going as he moves up the card.
Carlton Minus vs. Matthew Semelsberger: Welterweight
Winner: Matthew Semelsberger
Winning Method: Matthew Semelsberger wins by unanimous decision (30-36, 30-27, 29-28).
Semelsberger wins with more significant strikes (89-57) and two takedowns completed. Add in the only 2:46 of control of the opponent, and it was an easy call. The former college football player with a nice debut, and is 7-2 in MMA.
Timur Valley vs. Trevin Jones: Catchweight
Winner: Trevin Jones
Winning Method: Trevin Jones wins by TKO at 1:59 of the second round.
Check out the +425 underdog!

Jones actually lost the first round 10-8 on all three scorecards, but gets back in it and finds the stoppage win in his first UFC appearance. Tremendous fight.
