Here we go…

Joe Rogan as always is giving a good analysis of the bouts. His feature one seems to be Fitch and Carneiro. Rogan says that Fitch is one of the hottest stars at 170 lbs and that he hasn’t been seen by a lot of people because his fights haven’t made it to some of the main cards on events yet.

He also states that he’s the most exciting fighter at welterweight. I would disagree with him and say that St. Pierre is still the most exciting fighter in the division but I guess everyone can have their own opinion of things. He’s also really high on Carneiro’s overall game, especially his skills on the ground. It’s looking to be a very close fight between those two tonight.

The first bout of the night will be Drew McFedries going up against Jordan Radaev.

Drew McFedries vs Jordan Radev

This is going to be an interesting fight because it can either stay on the feet or go to the ground. Of course it’s up to the fighters - McFedries would excel on the feet; Radaev on the ground as he comes in as a very established wrestler. Who gets to impose their will on the other? Let’s find out…

Holy reach advantage McFedries!

The referee for this bout is Jorge Alonso.

Round 1: They start the round by measuring each other up on the feet. McFedries starts throwing punches and connecting while Radaev backs up against the cage.

McFedries pounces on him and connects with a right that puts Radaev to sleep. McFedries gets in two more shots for good measure before Alonso steps in and stops the bout.

Winner: Drew McFedries - KO (Punch)

Impressive victory by McFedries. Bruce Buffer said that Radaev was a kickboxer during the introductions but he really didn’t look like he was comfortable on the feet.

One of the undercard bouts is now being televised - Chad Reiner taking on last minute replacement Anthony Johnson.

The next fight is rising star Jon Fitch attempting to stay undefeated in the UFC against Roan Carneiro.

Round 2: Fitch is more aggressive on the feet to start the round. Fitch knocks Carneiro back into the cage with punches. Carnerio falls down and Fitch continues to ground and pound, landing unanswered shots. Fitch takes Carneiro’s back and continues to pound away. Fitch locks in a rear naked choke and Carneiro taps out seconds later.

Winner: Jon Fitch - Submission (Rear Naked Choke)

Scott says that he wasn’t impressed with Fitch’s performance and I agree. In past fights, he’s looked great on the ground. Why he was just letting Carneiro try and sink in the anaconda choke is beyond me. Either way, Fitch should probably be matched up with Karo in his next fight. It would make sense since Koscheck is facing St. Pierre in August and Serra and Hughes aren’t fighting until late this year.

Another one of the preliminary bouts have made it to the broadcast - Jason Black makes his long awaited UFC debut against Thiago Tavares.

Tavares then locks in a triangle and Black quickly taps out.

Winner: Thiago Tavares - Submission (Triangle)

Very impressive performance by Tavares, especially to defeat a fighter with a wealth of experience in Black that easily. Goldberg and Rogan made a few comments about how much weight Black cut for this fight and how sickly he looked during the weigh-in’s yesterday. His stomach was gross to say the least.
