Kelly McGill vs. Maegan Goodwin

Round 1

Goodwin tries to keep McGill at bay with a push kick, lands a jab and takes a front kick to the midsection in return. A straight right on the end of a combination connects for Goodwin as the smaller McGill continues to wait outside of range, looking for an entrance. Goodwin pushes forward, swinging punches until she’s close enough to clinch McGill against the cage. McGill reverses the position with double underhooks but nothing much comes of it before they separate. McGill finally finds a solid right hand around the one-minute mark, then another a few seconds later. Goodwin lands an outside leg kick but leaves her hands down and gets rushed by McGill, who sends three or four punches down the pipe in quick succession.

McGill showed class in all positions.
Goodwin uses more leg kicks and clinch work early in the frame, but McGill is beginning to find her way inside to continue scoring with the right hand. Goodwin hits a takedown but can’t hold McGill there for long, as McGill sweeps to the top and then opts to stand. McGill initiates the clinch this time, pushing Goodwin against the cage with an underhook. Goodwin tries to land some knees as McGill leans over, can’t find the mark, but she connects with a short right hand on the exit. Inside the last half minute, McGill steps into the pocket and tags Goodwin with a left hook-right straight combination.

Round 3

Goodwin gets through with a straight right hand, rushes into range with a series of missed punches and gets tossed to the ground. McGill allows her to stand right away and catches Goodwin coming back in with another right hand to the temple. Goodwin tries to clinch on the fence and gets put on her back again, this time with McGill moving straight to side control on Goodwin’s right. Some sharp elbows slice Goodwin along the hairline as she struggles to escape with about two minutes left in the fight. McGill frames up an arm-triangle choke but gets caught in Goodwin’s half guard and can’t pass to finish. Back to side control goes McGill, where Goodwin throws up her legs and tries to force a tap by triangling McGill’s head. McGill gives a thumb up to referee Bruce Allen before escaping. Goodwin sweeps out from underneath with 15 seconds on the clock but can’t do much before the final horn sounds.

Jenny Liou Shrivervs. Jamie Moyle

Round 1

Moyle comes out firing with snappy combinations and kicks at Shriver’s body. A wide left hook taps Shriver on the nose, then Moyle gets to work at kicking out her opponent’s lead leg. Shriver manages to clinch up, can’t hold Moyle there and eats a hard right straight on the break. Moyle puts a kick across Shriver’s body and then misses with a couple follow-up kicks as she tries to work her way into range. Shriver pulls the clinch again and this time manages to ding Moyle with a few high knees. Moyle responds with some hard knees to the body, pushing Shriver around the cage until Shriver is able to disengage. Moyle counters a low kick with a left hand that rocks Shriver’s face, then follows up with another pair of lefts. Shriver eats the shots well but Moyle is relentless, attacking with more body kicks, punches and a series of four or five hard knees in the Thai plum. A kick knocks Shriver to the ground, but she gets back up and tries to pull guard with an armbar. Moyle backs out, allowing Shriver to stand so both women can finish the round throwing hands.

Moyle conducted a brutal striking clinic.
Moyle opens up the round with a leg kick, steps back to avoid Shriver’s punches and then works some more bdoy knees as they strawweights tie up again. As they separate, Moyle drills Shriver with a pair of knees on the chin, then follows her to deliver a couple more up against the fence. A kick to the gut, a pair of punches and a knee seem to sting Shriver, but she quickly composes herself and comes off the cage to back up Moyle with long punches. Moyle lands a wide right hand before being tripped to the ground, where she uses a whizzer to take top position and works to extract her leg from Shriver’s half guard.

Moyle passes to side control with two minutes left in the round and begins bashing Shriver with hammer fists. She switches to elbows as Shriver reclaims half guard, then stands over Shriver to get some more leverage for her strikes. Moyle comes back down to Shriver’s closed guard, tries to land right hands but gets wrapped up. Shriver swings her legs around to try an armbar, but Moyle gets the limb free. While Moyle is still kneeling, Shriver clips her with an upkick to the face. Referee Bruce Allen pauses the action just before time runs out, and the round resumes a few seconds later without much further action.

Round 3

Moyle goes straight to the clinch, delivering some hard knees to Shriver’s gut before Shriver walks her back off the fence. Moyle tosses her opponent to the ground briefly, avoids an armbar attempt and allows Shriver to stand again. More knees from the Thai clinch follow for Moyle, prompting Shriver to tie up and hit a trip takedown. Moyle uses a loose triangle to sweep, then switches to an armbar. Shriver snares Moyle’s head between her legs but can’t do anything with the position. When Moyle pulls her head free, she steps over to full mount and begins unloading with heavy shots as Shriver turns over and covers up. Moyle stands after being bucked out of mount, then gets met with an upkick. Shriver scrambles to her feet, drops back to the ground to attempt a heel hook with 90 seconds on the clock but can’t find the submission. The women rush back to their feet, where Shriver gets caught in a rear waist lock and rolls through, surrendering bottom position to attempt another leg lock, and that’s where time runs out.

Shannon Sinn vs. Andrea Lee

Round 1

Lee counters some leg kicks from Sinn with quick punches over the top, then pushes Sinn against the fence and hits her with another punch and an elbow to the body. After they break, a right hand sends Sinn to the canvas, where Lee gives chase to attempt an inverted triangle choke. Sinn withstands the choke but Lee adds some damage with behind-the-back punches, then body shots. Lee loses the choke and they wind up in north-south position, then Sinn rolls to her back and Lee sets up in side control. Elbow strikes connect for Lee as she controls the head of Sinn to keep her on the ground. Sinn gets to her knees with 55 seconds on the clock and drives forward on Lee’s legs with a high double-leg. Sinn switches to a single-leg but Lee has a wide base against the fence and leans over to crack Sinn with more punches and a knee to the body as the round runs out.

Round 2

Lee brutalized Sinn with her striking.
Lee connects with a standing elbow over the top and fires a couple kicks at Sinn’s legs. A right hook to the body pushes Sinn one way, then a left hook upstairs sends her the other direction. Lee continues to walk down Sinn until 90 seconds in, when she traps her against the fence with pop Sinn with a combination. Sinn takes another overhand elbow, a crisp leg kick and a right hook before Lee leans her against the cage with a forearm across the throat. Lee backs away, Sinn resets and hits “KGB” with a solid right hook.

Lee just eats it and keeps pressing forward, lunging at Sinn with a knee to the gut. Sinn grabs the Thai clinch and scores with a couple knees of her own before releasing. Lee thumps Sinn’s body with punches on either side, but it’s Sinn digging an underhook and finishing the round in the outside position of the clinch.

Round 3

Lee closes in on Sinn with front kicks, picks at her with a couple stiff jabs and then goes to the body with a pair of hooks. Sinn is swinging in return but having trouble landing cleanly with Lee’s constant head movement. Lee lands an overhand right, misses with a left hook, goes back to the body. Sinn sticks a jab and steps back to avoid an overhand right, but Lee closes the gap and cracks her with a standing elbow to the temple. With just under two minutes remaining, Sinn gets the outside position in the clinch with over-unders. She trips Lee to the mat for a split second, can’t keep her there. Sinn is leaking blood from her nose as the women fight on the inside, and both women finish the fight covered in plasma.

Round 1

(+ Enlarge) | Photo: D. Mandel/Sherdog.com

Bell blew out Hougaard Djursaa effortlessly.
Bell explodes after the opening touch of gloves, assaulting Hougaard-Djursaa with punches, nonstop hooks and uppercuts. Hougaard-Djursaa is all defense in the opening minute, backing up to the fence as Bell switches things up and mixes in some body blows. Hougaard-Djursaa falls to the ground and grabs for Bell’s left leg, while Bell sits up and continues to unload with hammer fists and elbows. Bell tries to take full mount but Hougaard-Djursaa is wrapped around her leg, so Bell just kneels over her struggling opponent and gets back to work with punches and elbows.

They come off the fence and Hougaard-Djursaa finally gets a brief respite by triangling Bell’s legs and forcing the American to work to maintain top position. Hougaard-Djursaa tries to drive forward on a double-leg but gets put on her back again, where Bell continues her assault. It’s full mount now for Bell with one minute remaining in the round, and she’s trying hard to finish the fight with left hands as referee Bruce Allen looks on. Hougaard-Djursaa is getting smashed, covering up under the barrage of strikes, and after dozens of unanswered strikes, referee Allen intervenes.

Amber Brown vs. Liz McCarthy

Round 1

The atomweights go straight to the clinch, Brown trying to work knees in the clinch before being shoved against the cage. Brown keeps working her knees until she gets McCarthy to back away, then continues throwing knees from the Thai plum. McCarthy gets back in on a single-leg takedown and spins Brown to the canvas near the fence. Brown keeps a tight guard and manages to avoid damage until inside the 2:00 mark, when McCarthy is able to break loose and unload with some ground-and-pound for a few moments. When McCarthy comes back down to the ground, Brown throws up her legs to attempt an armbar. McCarthy stifles the submission attempt and puts a forearm across Brown’s neck to finish the round on top.

Brown outdueled McCarthy in a bloodbath.
McCarthy goes right after another takedown but walks into a knee from Brown which opens a gushing cut over the right eye. McCarthy stays attached to Brown up against the fence, continuing to work for the takedown until midway through the round without any success. When they come off the cage midway through the round, Brown gets busy with elbows, punches and a high kick, forcing McCarthy to shoot in again, this time in the middle of the cage. Brown stuffs McCarthy to the ground and follows her down to set up in McCarthy’s open guard.

McCarthy snares Brown’s right arm in an armbar and goes belly-down, but Brown steps over her back to alleviate the pressure. McCarthy holds on to the arm until she can explode out and take top position, working from Brown’s closed guard with 30 seconds left in the round.

Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc vs. Jodie Esquibel

Round 1

Esquibel opens the fight with fast strikes, mixing up punches and leg kicks as she presses forward. The shots aren’t landing cleanly but they’re keeping Rivera-Calanoc at bay and relatively inactive. Ninety seconds in, Esquibel steps into the pocket with a stiff jab. When she comes back in again, Rivera-Calanoc pops her with a jab of her own. Esquibel lands a right hook around the outside and circles around Rivera-Calanoc, hitting an outside leg kick before cutting an angle in the other direction. Esquibel sticks a hard, straight left on the end of a combo. With 70 seconds remaining, Rivera-Calanoc shoots for a high double-leg against the fence and brings Esquibel down to one knee.

Esquibel was a step ahead all night.
It’s more of the same from Esquibel at the start of round two, moving in angles around the centered Rivera-Calanoc, picking away with fast punches and kicks just as she did to start the fight. Esquibel misses a pair of leaping kicks, lands a left hand inside Rivera-Calanoc’s guard. The right eye of Rivera-Calanoc is showing some redness, and now Esquibel hits the other side with a right cross. A double jab scores for Esquibel, who misses with her follow-up body kicks and gets Rivera-Calanoc to step back by feinting a knee. Rivera-Calanoc is finding some success with leg kicks, but it’s still Esquibel with the speed and volume.

Esquibel hits a takedown with 30 seconds left and allows Rivera-Calanoc to stand right away. The Jackson-Wink MMA product finishes the frame with one last left hand.

Rivera-Calanoc catches a kick and tries to rush her opponent against the fence. Esquibel circles to her right and comes back around to continue striking.

Kaitlin Young vs. Raquel Pa'aluhi

Round 1

Pa’aluhi is pushing forward early, pumping hard punches and landing a few leg kicks. After 40 seconds, Young begins to score with counter jabs off her back foot, then dips out of range when Pa’aluhi throws a high kick. Both women land punches in the pocket, and Pa’aluhi comes away wiping at her right cheek, which begins trickling blood. Young sticks a jab-right cross combo, still on her bicycle as she waits to counter as Pa’aluhi steps ahead. Down to the last minute of the round, and now Pa’aluhi is sporting cuts on both sides of her face as Young continues to sock her stationary head. Pa’aluhi catches a kick on her shoulder in the waning seconds of the round, dumps Young to the ground and keeps hold as she stands up and time runs out.

The featherweights hit the mat for a split second but Young is right back on her feet, still pressed against the fence. Pa’aluhi gets another takedown 90 seconds in, and this time she’s able to pass to side control on Young’s right side. Pa’aluhi transitions to back control and sinks in both hooks with more than two minutes remaining.

Pa’aluhi peels off for an armbar, can’t get it and snaps right back to the rear mount. Young rolls to her side, nearly surrendering mount, then sits down and defends as Pa’aluhi squeezes for a rear-naked choke to close the frame.

Mizuki Inoue vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz

Round 1

Both strawweights stick jabs and slap with leg kicks in the opening seconds, then Kowalkiewicz gives Inoue a few more low kicks. The Japanese fighter backs up as Kowalkiewicz steps ahead pumping her jab, but now Inoue lights up her opponent with a fast three-punch combo. Kowalkiewicz responds with a one-two-kick, then a nice right hook on the end of a combination. Inoue answers a hook to the body with an overhand right, but Kowalkiewicz keeps coming forward behind her jab. Inoue is keeping busy but having trouble finding her punching target on the taller woman. Kowalkiewicz’s right hand is working well, straight shots and uppercuts to counter Inoue’s hands.

Kowalkiewicz's incredible workrate earned her
the win in a battle of elite prospects.
Kowalkiewicz backs Inoue up toward the fence, picks at her with a few leg kicks and switches to the southpaw stance. Inoue grabs for a Thai plum and winds up clinching Kowalkiewicz against the cage, pummeling for position with over-unders. They come back to the center, where Kowalkiewicz grazes with a right hook-left straight and takes a couple kicks to the inside of her lead leg. Inoue wraps up again and works for a trip takedown which omes with 90 seconds left in the round. Straight to side control on Kowalkiewicz’s left side goes Inoue, who jumps on Kowalkiewicz’s back as the Polish fighter stands up.

Kowalkiewicz dives forward, trying to shake Inoue or spike her head, but Inoue stays in back control and punches at Kowalkiewicz with some solid right hands as the round ends.

Round 3

Kowalkiewicz comes forward to begin the final round, switching stances as she mixes punches with low and front kicks. Inoue isn’t backing down, instead taking opportunities to press ahead and land jabs and right hands. Kowalkiewicz avoids a tie up and takedown attempt from Inoue, but the Pole is on her back foot now, taking some damage as Inoue gets busier with her punches. Kowalkiewicz is swinging punches to counter; Inoue’s strikes are quicker and cleaner, but Kowalkiericz’s look to be the heavier. Kowalkiewicz grabs Inoue by the head in the clinch and blasts her with three straight uppercuts. Inoue puts the fight on the fence but can’t do anything with the outside position before being turned around and kneed in the body. Both women land straight rights in the closing seconds, but it’s Kowalkiewicz coming alive at the end, keeping her fists in Inoue’s face as time runs out and we head to what should be an interesting decision.

Barb Honchakvs. Takayo Hashi

Round 1

Honchak puts a jab in Hashi’s face before closing the gap and muscling her challenger against the fence. That’s where the women spend most of the opening two minutes, hand-fighting on the inside as Hashi looks for a trip and Honchak works to immobilize her. Three minutes into the round, Hashi gets an underhook and spins to the outside position, but it lasts for all of five seconds before Honchak turns her back against the cage. Honchak pops Hashi in the face with a quick right hand over the shoulder before they separate. They’re not split for long before Honchak drives Hashi against the fence again to close out the round.

Hashi tries to peel away the champion’s arms, succeeds in getting double underhooks and turns Honchak around.

Honchak looks to bring her challenger back to the fence, can’t get her there as Hashi uses underhooks and a knee to the body to separate. The flyweights land simultaneous jabs and wrap up again. This time it’s Hashi with double underhooks, pressing Honchak against a cage post and trying to reap the outside leg. Honchak’s left side is on the fence as she tries to peel Hashi’s arms off her waist. Hashi won’t give up on the takedown and it costs her, as Honchak reverses the position with 70 seconds left in the fight. They fight off the fence and Honchak drills Hashi with an elbow on the exit. Honchak steps in to dig an underhook, puts a pair of knees in Hashi’s breadbasket and swings a big right hand which Hashi ducks under just as time expires.
