Alex White vs. Clay Collard

Round 1

Collard comes swinging at White with leaping knees and hooking punches, landing a couple lefts to the body before pushing White against the cage. The southpaw White creates some space and puts a hard, straight left in Collard’s breadbasket, then another. Collard misses with a two-punch combo, lands an outside leg kick behind it, then puts another strike down low after White slips to the ground and scrambles up. Collard swings his way into range and connects with a right hook as he backs White against the cage. The featherweights come back to the center, where White clips Collard with a couple hooks on the chin. Collard answers with a leg kick, sends a switch kick off White’s arm. With just over one minute remaining, Collard catches a kick and drags White to the ground, then presses him against the fence when he stands. Collard exits with an overhand left, lands a leg kick and gets caught by a counter left.

Round 2

Collard catches White coming forward and drops him with a counter left hook. White bounces back up, only to be sent back to the canvas by another punch near the fence. Collard tries to jump on his back, but White slips out the back door and takes top position. Just as quickly, White gives up the top to drop back for a heel hook attempt. Collard defends the submission but winds up pressed against the cage, where White drills him with a knee to the face. Another knee from White and he releases the Thai plum to reset in the center. Collard catches White with another left hook and a leg kick which strays low, prompting a verbal warning from referee Mark Smith. Collard catches a kick, can’t convert it into a takedown this time. He sends a straight right down the center to catch White walking into the pocket. White gets backed up by a leg kick and dives for a long takedown, sprawled on by Collard. An uppercut scores for White in the clinch, but “The Spartan” is wearing the worse of the damage on his face, sporting a cut beneath his eye and a bloody nose. Collard denies another takedown attempt, then decides to pull guard and immediately snares White in a triangle choke. White defends well and breaks the choke as Collard attempts to roll to the topside. They’re back on their feet, where White catches Collard with a standing elbow on the fence. Both guys are swinging wildly at the end of the round, and White makes up some ground by catching Collard with a combo.

Round 3

The featherweights are in no rush to engage at the start of round three, Collard staying on his back foot while White tries to work his way inside. After a minute or so, White gets through with a combination that appears to hurt Collard, though “Cassius” quickly recovers. Collard throws a sloppy punch and White steps in to lock up, so Collard runs over to the fence. White pops him with a couple punches before Collard drops levels to attempt a takedown. It doesn’t work, but Collard manages to hold White against the fence midway through the round. They’re back to striking with two minutes to go, until White whiffs on a spinning back fist and Collard plows him to the ground. White slaps on a triangle from underneath, connects with some hard shots which bloody Collard’s nose, but he loses the choke as Collard stands up. White misses with another spinning back fist and this time eats a counter left for his trouble. Collard pushes him to the fence with another double-leg shot, can’t get the takedown. Now it’s White with a takedown to side control in the final 10 seconds, and that’s where it ends.

Sergio Pettis vs. Matt Hobar

Round 1

The first left hook from Hobar sends Pettis to the ground, but the Roufusport fighter recovers quickly and grabs hold of Hobar’s legs as “The Crowbar” comes to try and finish. Pettis trips up Hobar and scrambles back to his feet, and now it’s Pettis’ turn to land some hard shots in the pocket. Hobar changes levels and drives Pettis to the ground, where the Texan buries his face in Pettis’ chest and slows the pace. Pettis tries an armbar, can’t get it but does manage to land a pair of upkicks as Hobar stands to escape. Hobar stands up in Pettis’ guard a few moments later, eats a couple more upkicks, and this time Pettis rolls and escapes to his feet with about 2:00 on the clock. Pettis swipes Hobar’s face with a right high kick that has Hobar shooting for his man’s legs, and Pettis snuffs out the takedown attempt. Hobar lands a counter right hook in the next exchange, then a push kick to the body and a low kick inside. Pettis catches a kick and tries to hustle Hobar to the ground, but Hobar winds up on top in north-south position and keeps Pettis kneeling to the horn.

Round 2

Pettis cracks Hobar with a left high kick, shuts down a takedown attempt and goes back upstairs with the right leg. Hobar is on his back foot now, with Pettis pressing forward throwing body-head combinations. Hobar falls to the ground and begins taking some hard shots to the face while referee Mario Yamasaki looks on from nearby. Ninety seconds into the round, Hobar pulls Pettis into his closed guard and slows the pace again. Referee Yamasaki stands them up with 2:20 left in the round and Pettis immediately resumes his punching, zapping Hobar with a big right hook on the end of a combination. Hobar is getting tagged when he throws, eating straight counter shots, so he gets hold of a leg and drags Pettis back to the canvas. Pettis keeps an active guard in the final minute, threatening with triangles and armbars, then making Hobar pay for escaping with another upkick. Hobar finishes the round on top, in side control.

Round 3

Hobar emerges for round three with a badly swollen left eye and a cut beneath his right eye, but he scores the first offense of the round with a left hand down the middle. Hobar gets in on a single-leg, can’t finish the takedown and gives Pettis a knee to the body as he exits the clinch. The next single-leg try puts Pettis up against the fence, but again Hobar can’t convert. Pettis sticks another straight right on Hobar’s damaged eye, then catches Hobar swinging wildly and catches him leaning with a kick to the head. Hobar’s punches are looping with 90 seconds to go, letting the quicker Pettis dip out of range and come back to counter with straight shots. After a couple jabs snap his head back, Hobar dives for a takedown and gets sprawled on. One last takedown attempt by Hobar is defended against the cage by Pettis as time runs out.

Evans-Smith tries for an early takedown but winds up holding Pennington against the cage. After fending off a guillotine attempt, Evans-Smith gets the Coloradoan to the ground and winds up in Pennington’s open guard. Pennington scrambles back to her feet, can’t escape Evans-Smith’s clutches and winds up held against the fence. Evans-Smith lands a solid knee before Pennington slips around the back and gets a waist lock to reverse the position. Now it’s Evans-Smith with her back to the fence, turning the position around again and attacking Pennington with knees to the body. Pennington is cut on her forehead from Evans-Smith’s knee, and now “Rocky” changes levels to floor Evans-Smith with a double-leg in the last 20 seconds. Evans-Smith stands back up and gets caught in a bulldog choke. Pennington spends the final 10 seconds squeezing tight and chokes Evans-Smith unconscious just before the horn sounds.

Corey Anderson vs. Justin Jones

Round 1

Anderson sticks a right hand and puts a kick on Jones’ midsection, then has to back up as Jones charges ahead. Jones puts his man on the fence and cracks the “TUF” winner with a left hook before Anderson is able to slip out. Anderson gets a takedown, defends a loose guillotine and allows Jones to stand again. Attacking on the fence, Anderson strings together a combination and, a moment later, nearly catches Jones in a standing arm-triangle choke. The 205ers reset in the center and Anderson flicks out a few jabs, then covers up to deflect a right hook from Jones. The next takedown attempt from Anderson is defended by Jones, but “Lazy Bones” eventually succumbs. They’re quickly back on their feet, where Jones drills Anderson’s gut with a pair of sharp knees in the Thai clinch. Jones lands a liver kick and then a left hook on the same side, prompting another takedown from Anderson, who finishes the round in Jones’ half guard.

Back up they come, clinching on the cage with Anderson on the outside, then backing up to land a level elbow. Jones creates some space and presses forward with hands outstretched, landing a few leg kicks and grazing with a couple shots, but too slow to stay out of the way when Anderson decides to grab hold again.

Gordon catches a kick and gets an early takedown, but Samman pops back up instantly and breaks free in the ensuing scramble. Throwing a knee to the midsection, Samman’s shin catches Gordon on the cup, and referee Herb Dean pauses the action. When they resume, Gordon hits another takedown and starts landing short left hands from Samman’s closed guard. Samman offers some punches in return from the bottom before the pace slows and the fighters are brought back to their feet by the ref. Samman tries to attack with combos and leaping kicks, but Gordon grabs hold and puts Samman on the canvas again inside the two-minute mark. Gordon closes out the round on top, grinding with ground-and-pound.

Once there, Samman throws a couple punching combinations before going upstairs with a left high kick that lands shin-to-face and knocks Gordon out cold. Samman lands a left hand as Gordon crashes to the ground, but it’s already over, a crushing come-from-behind knockout.

Urijah Faber vs. Francisco Rivera

Round 1

Faber lands a leg kick as he creeps forward, trying to wade into the pocket, clearly wary of Rivera’s punching power. The former WEC champ is pulling up short on his punches and now fakes a level change, but Rivera doesn’t bite. Rivera parries a combination with a counter right hook and then backpedals to dodge a takedown attempt. Faber picks the ankle and trips up Rivera, but “Cisco” bounces right back up. Another double-leg attempt from Faber goes by the wayside, and when he tries to pull the Thai plum, Rivera punches him back out of range. Rivera is getting busy with low kicks but whiffs on a two-punch combo. Faber feints a takedown and Rivera answers by threatening with an uppercut counter. Rivera lands a thudding body kick and shuts down Faber’s single-leg attempt behind it. Faber evades a pair of hard right hands from Rivera, who resumes leg-kicking and then taps Faber with an overhand right. Faber tries one more takedown at the end of the round and eats a knee for his trouble.

Faber rushes into range with an uppercut and gets swept back out by a Rivera right hook.

Tony Ferguson vs. Abel Trujillo

Round 1

Ferguson gets clipped with a right hand on the temple and hits the deck in the center of the cage. “El Cucuy” jumps back to his feet and gets chased around the outside by Trujillo, who tries to catch up and finish the fight with more punches but cannot. Ferguson seems to have regained his senses but he’s still eating straight punches down the center. Trujillo gets a takedown 90 seconds into the round but isn’t able to keep Ferguson on the ground for long. Once they’re back up, Trujillo takes a few seconds to set up another shot and then runs Ferguson back to the mat. Trujillo drops big punches through Ferguson’s long, kicking guard, but Ferguson is able to create space with the kicks and scramble up. Ferguson lands a whipping right hand that gets Trujillo to cover up momentarily. Trujillo circles away and catches the oncoming Ferguson with a few nice counter jabs in the final 30 seconds.

Round 2

Ferguson backs Trujillo up to the fence with long punches, then grabs the Thai plum but can’t find the space for the knees he’s cueing up. Trujillo dives for a takedown and gets a long sprawl from Ferguson, who frames up a brabo choke before spinning around to work from the back. Ferguson dives over the top to attempt an armbar or kimura, sacrificing the dominant position for a submission attempt which leads nowhere. Trujillo catches Ferguson as he stands, but Ferguson turns him around for a clinch battle on the fence. Ferguson spins his man back to the mat midway through the round. Trujillo is back up a few seconds later, now backing up against the fence while Ferguson throws long punches from the center and cuts off Trujillo’s angles. Ferguson gets a front headlock and snaps Trujillo down to his knees, then moves to riding position and drops hammer fists to the side of Trujillo’s head. Ferguson sneaks around to take the back and catching the kneeling Trujillo with his hands down. “El Cucuy” slaps on a whip-fast rear-naked choke and has Trujillo tapping out in seconds.

Schaub rushes out to the center and lobs a right hand over the top, though most of his punches are coming up short against the taller man. Schaub drives Browne to the fence with a double-leg and then peels the Hawaiian off to finish the takedown in the center. Browne gets back to his knees, then his feet, still with Schaub clinging to his back. Browne gets free and resets, then catches Schaub coming in with an uppercut. Browne tosses Schaub to the ground in the center of the cage and follows him to the ground, then steps into full mount. Schaub hip-escapes but can’t prevent Browne from mounting again, still with 80 seconds left in the round. After eating a pair of heavy punches which bloodies his mouth, Schaub bucks him out of mount again. Browne goes right back to mount, then takes Schaub’s back and flattens him out, dropping punches with both hands as referee Mario Yamasaki calls for Schaub to defend himself. Yamasaki also warns Browne to watch the back of the head while punching. Browne keeps the punches coming, and with Schaub offering nothing in return, Yamasaki waves off the fight.

UFC Lightweight Title Fight:
Anthony Pettis vs. Gilbert Melendez

Round 1

John McCarthy is the referee for the first of tonight’s two title fights. Melendez comes straight across the cage and shoots a double-leg against the fence. Pettis stuffs the takedown and then pushes Melendez away and throws a high kick, but Melendez comes straight back for another try. Pettis goes down briefly, scrambles back to his feet and puts a hand on the mat to avoid knees to the head, so Melendez throws knees to the body. Melendez grapevines Pettis’ left leg and throws left hands up top, working to trip the champion. Pettis covers up to avoid the shots, but some of Melendez’s punches are getting through. With 2:40 left in the round, Pettis slips out and begins backpedaling as “El Nino” storms forward. This time, Melendez gets an easy double-leg, holds Pettis on the ground to drop some ground-and-pound, then stands and has to block a quick high kick from “Showtime.” Pettis can’t get off the fence, now with Melendez shooting a single-leg against the cage. At the one-minute mark, Pettis scores with a hard right hook that backs Melendez out of the pocket. Melendez tries a shot in the center, can’t get it and eats a flying knee for the effort. Back to the fence they go, Melendez on a double but Pettis keeping a wide base with his back to the fence.

Hendricks keeps working his hook-hook-leg kick combination, mixing in uppercuts and knees here and there, and Lawler is offering little in return through the first three minutes of the round. At the 90-second mark, Hendricks hits a takedown in the middle of the cage but gets wrapped up by Lawler, who quickly gets back to his feet. Hendricks shoots a double-leg on the fence, switches to a single and takes an elbow to the head from the sprawling Lawler.

Hendricks sticks a body kick and the fighters land simultaneous right hooks. Lawler sprawls on another shot with 2:45 to go, but Hendricks keeps driving and puts “Ruthless” right back up against the cage.

Lawler sprawls him down to the ground and starts dropping big right hands while Hendricks’ corner calls for the champ to bury his head. With 30 seconds left, Lawler switches to elbowing Hendricks’ body and then allows Hendricks to stand.
