Jesse Bongfeldt vs. Chris Weidman:
Round 1 - Weidman was all over Bongfeldt for the vast majority of the round, landing a little bit of ground and pound, as well as looking for submissions. In the final 30 seconds, Bongfeldt stood, looked to land some strikes, but found himself in a standing guillotine that was locked in deep, and managed to tap before going to sleep.
Result: Chris Weidman def. Jesse Bongfeldt via Submission, Round 1
Round 1 - Sam Stout comes out aggressive, but Edwards defense is real tight. Lots of time with little damage inflicted. They clinch, no dice, then a take down for Edwards. Edwards can't get anything going on the ground though. They stand, and begin to trade again. Head kick by Edwards, but he slips after, stands right back up. They trade, Yves is elusive, lands a nice counter hook, but Stout lands a left hook of his own, and Edwards is OUT COLD. Nasty, nasty knockout.
Result: Sam Stout def. Yves Edwards via KO, Round 1
