UFC Fight Pass Preliminary Bouts:
Bout #1 – Guido Cannetti def. Hugo Viania by unanimous decision.
Bout #2 – Vitor Miranda def. Clint Hester by TKO, 2:39 of the 2nd Round
Miranda was really dominant in this one. Hester shot in and Miranda caught him with a knee then drove him to the mat and unleashed punches til the fight was stopped.
FoxSports 1 Preliminary Bouts:
Bout #1 – Iuri Alcantara def. Leandro Issa by unanimous decision
Alcantara spent a lot of time getting caught up in a grappling game, but his striking was superior especially in rounds 2 and 3. He finished strong, and could have put Issa away.
Bout #2 – Warlley Alves def. Nordine Taleb by submission (guillotine choke), 4:10 of the 2nd round.
Alves is fun, very athletic, and seems like he has a good balance in his striking and grappling. Good submission win.
Bout #3 – Patrick Cummins def. Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante by TKO, 0:43 of the 3rd Round.
This was bloody. Cavalcante landed big strikes early but he burned out in the third. Both men looked like hell after this match was over.
Bout #4 – Demian Maia def. Neil Magny by submission (rear naked choke), 2:50 of the 2nd Round.
Magny rode a 7-fight win streak into this bout, but Maia has put an end to that. He really controlled this from start to finish, and really worked an effective ground game throughout.
