Cyril Asker vs. Yaozong Hu

Round 1

Asker rushes forward, backing up Hu against the fence, and then dives in behind a right hand to score an easy takedown in the opening moments of the match. Asker lands a few hard shots on the ground but can't hold Hu on the mat. As the heavyweights work back to their feet, Hu grabs a tight standing guillotine and wrenches it, lifting Asker off the ground as he tries to finish the choke. Hu tries to adjust the choke and, in doing so, allows Asker to escape. The Frenchman scores another takedown, now tries to transition onto the back of the kneeling UFC newcomer. Asker gets one hook in but is blocked by the fence on Hu's left side, so the "Silverback" tries to soften up his opponent with right hands to the face. Asker hops off the back to drive a knee into Hu's body, and shortly after the Chinese heavyweight climbs back to his feet, Asker has another takedown. Hu is getting roughed up on the ground, eating some hard right hands from Asker and offering little in return. Referee Thomas Fan is taking a close look in the final 20 seconds, but Hu survives to see round two.

Round 2

Hu dodges a right hand from Asker and snipes back with a right of his own, then follows with a pair of leg kicks. The Frenchman retaliates by rushing forward with an uppercut which just misses Hu, and now Asker completes another easy takedown. Asker punches Hu in the head a few times before standing and holding him in a front headlock. Hu goes to his knees, allowing Asker to take the same one-hook position on his back from the opening round. Again, Asker is blasting Hu with right hands from behind, while Hu is just covering up. Asker finally flattens out Hu, lands a few thudding shots to the sides of the head, then moves to take the back again. Asker rolls Hu away from the fence, slaps on a rear-naked choke and forces a quick tap.

Lijiburen Wu vs. Rolando Dy

Round 1

Wuliji lands a kick to the body of Dy, who uncorks a nasty left hook that sends the Chinese newcomer to the canvas. Wuliji recovers quickly and gets back to his feet, then attaches himself to a single-leg and spins Dy to the floor near the center of the cage. Dy works back to his feet but has his back taken in the process, and now "The Beastmaster" rides Dy back to the ground. Wuliji has only one hook set, and Dy looks close to escaping as they enter the third minute of the opening round. Wuliji never lets Dy get free and nearly runs him back to the mat, but this time Dy is able to break away and reset. Dy connects with a lead left hook that sends Wuliji dashing away. A heavy low kick lands for Dy, now one to the body; Wuliji considers a shot but back out as Dy threatens with a knee. Wuliji misses with a flying knee, drawing a grin from Dy, followed by another low kick. Dy shoots in the final 10 seconds but can't complete a takedown before the horn.

Round 2

Wuliji shoots in and secures another early takedown to start the round, but this time Dy creates a scramble that lands him in top position. Dy quickly passes to side control on Wuliji's left side and begins driving knees into the body of the Chinese featherweight. After the pace slows and Dy is only pinning Wuliji down from side control, referee Herb Dean calls for action. Wuliji rolls to his knees, then escapes to his feet with just under three minutes on the clock. Dy goes back to his boxing, popping Wuliji with jabs and hooks, now mixing in body kicks and a standing elbow strike. Wuliji charges forward with a combination and lands a clean right hand over the top, but Dy seems unfazed and goes right back to jabbing. Dy slides backward, waiting to counter, then finds the mark with a left hook when Wuliji throws hands. Wuliji hits a takedown and stands over Dy, who pushes the "Beastmaster" away with a kick to the chest and jumps back up in a hurry. Dy continues to jab and leg-kick in the final minute.

Round 3

Wuliji gets hold of a single-leg and drags Dy to the ground in the first 40 seconds of the round. Dy tries to kick off the fence as he holds Wuliji in a deep half guard, barely preventing the UFC rookie from stepping over to mount. Wuliji lands short body punches from half guard until Dy chest-bumps and rolls him off, and both fighters climb back to their feet. Wuliji connects with a wild overhand right as he dives in for another shot, but Dy is able to stuff it this time. Halfway through the final round, the featherweights reset in the center of the cage. An inside leg kick from Dy strays to the cup of Wuliji, who takes only a few seconds of his allotted five-minute break. Dy shuts down another takedown try from Wuliji, sticks a jab and stuffs another, but now Wuliji stands and spins to the back. Dy gets pushed to the fence, where he reverses Wuliji and zaps him with a clean elbow strike in the clinch. Wuliji drops to his knees to try another shot, can't get anything going, and Dy holds him against the wall to land another elbow.

Gina Mazany vs. Yanan Wu

Round 1

Wu charges forward and runs straight into a hard right hand from Mazany, who lands a couple more punches in short order behind it. Wu slugs back with a counter left hand that immediately leaves a lump on Mazany's face. Now the bantamweights clinch up, fighting along the fence with Wu on the outside, controlling Mazany with overhooks. Two minutes in, Wu finally drags Mazany to the ground, then drops a left hand on her face. Mazany is able to work back to her feet, popping Wu with a left hand along the way. The bantamweights throw hands for a few seconds before Mazany opts to clinch and shove Wu against the cage. Mazany reaps Wu's outside leg and lands in half guard with two minutes on the clock. Mazany receives a warning from referee Marc Goddard for what looks like a headbutt. She traps the left arm of Wu with her legs and postures up to drop elbows. Wu shifts to reclaim guard and tries an armbar, but Mazany escapes and continues to thump Wu's head with punches. Wu finally works back to her feet again with 30 seconds left, holds Mazany on the fence to deliver a knee to the gut and finishes with an elbow to the face.

Round 2

Mazany opens with a heavy left hand, then slams a right high kick into Wu's face. Wu just eats it and drives forward, pressing Mazany against the fence. Wu is warned for a second time as she grabs the fence to hold Mazany in place. Referee Goddard gives another warning before Mazany is able to spin Wu around and land a knee to the gut. The bantamweights separate for a few seconds before Mazay dives on a double-leg and plants Wu at the base of the fence. Wu posts and stands, only to be tripped back to the ground. Mazany traps Wu's right hand under a knee and begins thumping the UFC newcomer's face with left hands. Wu frees the arm and sits up, so Mazany stands and leans her weight on Wu to keep her in place. Mazany grabs hold of Wu's right wrist and begins landing punches to the Chinese fighter's unprotected face. Mazany looks up at the ref, hoping for a stoppage -- but while she's doing that, Wu scrambles back to her feet. Mazany goes straight for another bodylock and trip takedown, but Wu keeps her footing this time. Wu spins Mazany against the fence with 45 seconds remaining, then receives yet another warning for grabbing the fence. The next fence grab causes Goddard to march Wu over to her corner and ask for a translation; no point is deducted, but Wu loses her position on the restart. The bantamweights finish the round throwing wild punches, and Wu returns to her corner with a look of panic on her face, favoring her right shoulder.

Round 3

Mazany hits Wu with a running Superman punch, takes a left hand in return and gets run against the fence. The Alaskan is quick to escape the clinch, and she meets Wu back in the center of the cage to continue striking. Mazany lands a few push-kicks to the body before catching Wu charging in and wrapping her up. Mazay brings Wu to the fence and trips her to the ground with 3:15 remaining in the bout. Mazany flattens out Wu from open guard but isn't doing much with top position, prompting referee Goddard to call for action. Wu tries to use rubber guard but Mazany passes to side control and slams the UFC rookie with a few hard elbows to the face. Mazany moves to north-south position as they enter the final 60 seconds of the bout, staying just busy enough to maintain the position until the final horn.

Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Chase Sherman

Round 1

Abdurakhimov strikes first with a lead left hook but takes a counter left in return from the "Vanilla Gorilla." Both men connect again as they continue to test the range, and now Abdurakhimov is finding his mark with the left hook each time he throws it. Sherman eats another left hook and doesn't budge, but the next punch from Abdurakhimov -- a big overhand right -- puts Sherman on wobbly legs. As Sherman tries to run away, Abdurakhimov lands a left hook from behind and puts Sherman on the ground, forcing referee Steve Perceval into action.

The Official Result

Bharat Khandare vs. Yadong Song

Round 1

Song tries to surprise Khandare with some spinning strikes in the opening seconds, but the UFC's first Indian fighter stays out of range as he circles the outside. Khandare throws a spinning backfist of his own, can't find the mark. Khandare lands a low kick, but Song comes over the top with a counter right hand that lands on Khandare's face with a thud. Khandare sticks a jab, slides off center to avoid Song's counter. Song nearly takes out the lead leg of Khandare with a chopping low kick; Khandare reponds with a few light leg kicks inside. Song is controlling the center of the cage, moving Khandare around the outside. As they enter the final minute of the round, Song lunges forward and decks Khandare with a big overhand right. The stunned Khandare shoots out of desperation and gets caught in a 10-finger guillotine that has him tapping in seconds.

The Official Result

Yadong Song def. Bharat Khandare via Submission (Guillotine Choke) R1 4:16

Kailin Curran vs. Xiaonan Yan

Round 1

Yan catches a low kick and comes over the top with a right hand, then backs up Curran with a side kick to the face. Curran's knees buckle as she eats a heavy pair of punches from the Chinese fighter, who looks to have wobbled Curran for a second time in the opening minute. Yan's assault slows as Curran digs an underhook and shoves her against the fence. Yan appears to complain of a foul as Curran lands knees to her legs, but referee Thomas Fan tells her to fight on. The strawweights come back to the center with three minutes on the clock. Curran shoots in behind a right hand and tries a trip takedown at the fence, but Yan widens her base and keeps her footing. Yan eats a few hard left hands and takes a knee to the body before she's able to shove Curran away. Back in the center, Yan begins to find her distance again, tagging Curran with punches from range. The Hawaiian shoots again with 90 seconds left, again winds up holding Yan on the wall, peppering "Fury" with short left hands. Back to the center they go with 40 seconds to go, and now both women are connecting with punches in the pocket. Curran dives on Yan's legs, pushes her to the wall, but Yan breaks loose and gets the last strike with a kick to the midsection.

Round 2

Curran takes the center of the cage to start round two, but it's Yan stepping forward to connect with another lead left hook. Curran throws a low kick and gets blasted with a straight right hand, then nearly has her lead leg kicked out from under her. The Hawaiian wraps up Yan with a bodylock, reaps the back leg and finally completes a takedown. Yan throws up her legs, can't find an arm but forces Curran to stand nonetheless. Yan jumps to her feet but is quickly pressed against the fence by Curran with a right underhook, landing short left hands. Yan breaks out with just over three minutes on the clock and resumes her jabbing, trying to keep Curran on the outside. Curran eats another jab in order to walk inside and wrap up Yan against the fence once again. Yan spins free, waits for Curran to come forward and zaps the American with a straight left. Curran clinches again, but Yan is escaping quicker each time now. Yan uses good footwork to slide out of Curran's range, then snaps back Curran's head with a sharp jab. Curran trans Yan against a cage post and holds her there for the final 30 seconds, landing a few left hands as she does.

Round 3

Yan catches Curran coming forward and leg-sweeps her to the ground, but Curran is able to get back on her feet quickly. The strawweights exchange a few punches before Curran has a takedown stuffed, putting a body kick on Yan as she backs out. Curran is upping her aggression now, prompting Yan to try the leg-sweep again. This time, Curran is ready for it and lands a left hand over the top. Yan is backing up to the fence as Curran dives forward to complete a takedown with just over three minutes left in the bout. Yan wraps up tight from the bottom, holding Curran in half-butterfly guard. Curran manages to sit up and land three or four punches but otherwise is being held tight by Yan. Inside the final two minutes now, Curran is starting to put some good right hands on Yan, whose head is flat on the mat. Yan finally kicks Curran away and gets back to her feet with 60 seconds remaining. Curran gives her no breathing room and clinches up straight away, again with the right underhook and left hands on the wall. Yan breaks out of the clinch with blood streaming from her mouth, and both fighters start swinging for the fences in the final 20 seconds. Neither woman can find the late knockout, and this one will go to the judges.

Round 1

The first inside leg kick from Song lands on the cup of Nash; referee Herb Dean pauses the bout, but Nash tells him "I'm good" and quickly comes back to fight. Seconds after the restart, Song blasts the incoming Nash with a counter right hand to the jaw. Nash goes stiff and drops to the ground, rolling to his knees and clinging to Song's right leg. Song smashes the American's head with heavy, right-handed hammerfists, and with Nash doing nothing to defend himself or improve his position, referee Herb Dean steps in to stop the bout.

The Official Result

Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Sheymon Moraes

Round 1

The featherweights exchange body kicks in the opening minute, 6-foot-1 Magomedsharipov towering over 5-foot-8 Moraes as they circle the cage. Magomedsharipov catches a leg kick and blasts the Brazilian with a straight right hand. Moraes hits a switch kick to the midsection of Magomedsharipov, then yanks back the leg before the Russian can grab hold. Moraes lands a low kick and bounces an overhand right off Magomedsharipov's glove. Halfway through the round, Moraes jumps guard but can't do anything as Magomedsharipov keeps him flattened from on top. Moraes tries to stand and gets hurled back to the floor, where Magomedsharipov jumps on his back. Magomedsharipov gets off the back as Moraes stands again, but a rear waistlock allows the Ricardo Almeida pupil to throw Moraes straight back to the floor. Magomedsharipov passes to side control this time, then to full mount, where he slams Moraes with heavy, slashing elbows. Moraes bucks Magomedsharipov out of mount but finishes the round underneath the enormous featherweight.

Round 2

Magomedsharipov whiffs on a spinning kick, but it gets him inside to clinch, where he's able to trip Moraes to the ground. Moraes scrambles up, Magomedsharipov goes to trip him again, but Moraes blocks it this time and comes down in top position. Moraes steps over to mount, then drops off, looking to snare an arm. Magomedsharipov comes out on top and pulls his arms free, then moves to take Moraes' back, now in the second minute of the round. Moraes turns over, leaving Magomedsharipov in mount, posturing high to unload with heavy elbow strikes. Magomedsharipov steps out of mount to knee-on-belly position, slams Moraes with a few more elbows, then tries to reclaim mount but gets blocked by the Brazilian's knee. Magomedsharipov is dominating on top with two minutes left to work. When Moraes tries to push him away with butterfly guard, Magomedsharipov just uses the space to slide into side control. Moraes gets a deep half guard and tries to work his way up as they hit the final 60 seconds. Magomedsharipov is all over him, landing a few right hands in between working to maintain position to the horn.

The Russian allows Moraes back to his feet, where Moraes is able to catch Magomedsharipov with a lead uppercut. Moraes cuts off an uppercut from Magomedsharipov with a body kick, then follows with a left hand. Magomedsharipov goes upstairs with a kick, then changes levels to try a takedown. Moraes puts his hands on the mat to balance as Magomedsharipov spins to try and wrestle him down from behind. After a struggle, Magomedsharipov brings Moraes to one knee up against the fence. Halfway through the round, Magomedsharipov flattens out Moraes at the base of the wall. Moraes rolls to his knees, then back to his feet, but Magomedsharipov gives him no space and drags him right back down. Back up comes Moraes, Magomedsharipov still wrapped around his waist, again pulling him to the canvas. This time, Magomedsharipov takes full mount immediately, staying locked on as Moraes kicks hard off the fence. Magomedsharipov slides out of mount to knee-on-belly position, now leaning across to work on Moraes' left arm. Magomedsharipov can't get the arm, so he tries to mount, but Moraes bucks him off. Magomedsharipov catches Moraes driving forward and snares the Brazilian in a headlock, setting up an anaconda choke. Moraes tries to clasp his hands as Magomedsharipov drops to his side and squeezes hard on the choke. There's no escape for Moraes, who is forced to tap before he's choked out.

The Official Result

Zabit Magomedsharipov def. Sheymon Moraes via Submission (Anaconda Choke) R3 4:30

Alex Garcia vs. Muslim Salikhov

Round 1

Salikhov opens with an outside low kick, then is forced to sprawl as Garcia shoots hard on a double-leg. Salikhov keeps his balance at first -- with the aid of a cage grab, which draws a warning from referee John Sharp -- but Garcia's tenacity eventually yields a takedown. Garcia is heavy on top, leaning right to left across Salikhov's body in half guard. Garcia has an arm-triangle choke locked up, but he's on the wrong side and can't get to mount in order to pass over to the right. When Garcia tries to mount, Salikhov elevates him and scrambles back to his feet with just over half the round remaining. Salikhov plants a spinning kick in Garcia's midsection, pops the Tristar Gym representative with a jab and then catches him with a thigh kick. Garcia shoots a high double-leg but only winds up holding Salikhov against the fence. Salikhov spins to the outside and then escapes, though not before absorbing a knee from "The Dominican Nightmare." Garcia perfectly times a shot, diving under a big right hand to plow Salikhov back to the ground. Garcia gets in a few good right hands as he roughs up Salikhov near the fence in the closing seconds.

Round 2

After a slow opening minute, Salikhov sidesteps a takedown attempt and catches Garcia with a partially blocked hook kick. Both welterweights are looking for a homerun shot with right hands over the top, but both are pulling up short as they strike from a few feeet away. Garcia tries another double, gets stuffed at first, but once he locks his hands behind Salikhov's legs, he's able to dump the "King of Kung Fu" to the canvas. Garcia passes to side control on Salikhov's left, now steps over to take the back and sinks in one hook. Garcia slaps on a rear-naked choke and rolls Salikhov toward the fence. Salikhov's eyes are wide as he tries to peel away Garcia's arms. The choke doesn't look to be under the chin, but Garcia's squeeze on Salikhov's jaw is enough to coax a tap.

The Official Result

Alex Garcia def. Muslim Salikhov via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) R2 3:22

Alex Caceres vs. Guan Wang

Round 1

Wang counters the southpaw Caceres' first low kick with a straight right hand, then finds a home for the right again a few seconds later. Caceres comes in to clinch and throws a knee that lands on Wang's cup, prompting referee Steve Perceval to step in. Replay shows that Caceres took a knee to the groin simultaneously, but Wang seems to be the fighter more affected by the inadvertant foul. Wang is ready to continue after a minute's recovery, and soon after the fight resumes, Wang blasts Caceres with another heavy right hand, then a standing elbow that puts "Bruce Leeroy" on roller skates. The featherweights clinch on the fence, spinning for position until Wang shoves Caceres away with a knee to the gut. Caceres whiffs on a lead uppercut and gets cracked with a counter left hook. Caceres puts a left hand across Wang's face, drawing a scowl and a growl from the "Dongbei Tiger." Caceres catches Wang getting too agressive as he steps inside, twice placing counter left hands on Wang's grill. Seconds before the end of the round, Wang floors Caceres with a left hook. Wang tries to pound out his downed opponent before the horn, but he's unable to force a stoppage. Caceres wobbles back to his stool with assistance from the ref.

Round 2

Wang comes out swinging and has Caceres on the retreat early with some hellacious right hands. Caceres still looks unsteady as he backpedals, trying to keep the forward-marching Wang on the end of his long jabs. Wang takes a kick to the body but touches Caceres with a counter left hand. A straight right hand nearly knocks Caceres to the ground, but the American keeps his balance. Wang takes a kick to the cup but doesn't want to take a break and potentially give Caceres time to recover. Nonetheless, Wang has taken his foot off the gas a bit here, and by the midway point of the round, Caceres seems to have shaken any lingering cobwebs. Wang ducks under a wild punch and grabs a standing rear waistlock, but Caceres peels away the Chinese fighter's arms and dashes to the other side of the cage. Wang continues to find a home for his right hand, while Caceres comes with sporadic jabs and body kicks down the stretch.

Round 3

Wang blocks a high kick, pulls up short on a jab and takes a deep breath as he resets. Caceres lunges forward to throw and gets cut off by a short left from Wang that leaves the American's right eye bleeding. The next left hand puts Caceres on his seat, but "Bruce Leeroy" bounces back to his feet with a smile on his face. Caceres looks to be bleeding from his mouth now, too, but still he nods and calls for Wang to come forward. Caceres slips on a kick but gets up before Wang can capitalize on the error. Caceres lands a low kick, steps inside to clinch and throws a high knee to Wang's face as they fight on the fence. Wang breaks free, but Caceres looks to be turning the tide late in the bout as he pops the "Tiger" with a lead uppercut. Inside the final 60 seconds, Caceres lands another accidental groin strike, his third low blow of the bout. Wang takes a few minutes to recover this time, but when the fight resumes, it's Caceres who comes shooting out of the gate, looking for a finish. Caceres tags Wang with a right hook, lands a few body kicks, but Wang slows the attack with a clinch on the fence. Caceres breaks free and hits Wang with a few hooks down the stretch, but this one will be decided by the judges.

Jingliang Li vs. Zak Ottow

Round 1

Li opens with a few leg kicks, then takes a kick under the arm from Ottow, who switches between orthodox and southpaw stances in the opening minute. Li backs Ottow away with a counter right hook, but Ottow times a low kick to tag "The Leech" with a right straight of his own. Halfway through, the opening round still looks to be up for grabs. Li ducks under a punch from Ottow and comes back up with a hard left hook. The next counter from Li sends Ottow crashing to the mat, and the American clings to a leg as Li pounds away, trying to force a stoppage. Referee Herb Dean is having a close look as the fetal Ottow eats more unanswered shots, and now the ref steps in to save "The Barbarian" from further damage.

Michael Bisping vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Round 1

English referee Marc Goddard is the third man in the cage for tonight's middleweight main event. The southpaw Gastelum bounces forward, slinging left hands in the opening moments, but his momentum is slowed by a Bisping oblique kick. Bisping pops Gastelum with a pair of jabs before the American steps in to initiate a clinch on the fence. The 185ers soon separate and resume striking from distance. Bisping is starting to catch Gastelum with some clean counter rights in the second minute, but Gastelum continues to press forward. Bisping swings and misses with a pair of punches, and Gastelum leaps into the pocket to deliver a crushing left hook. Bisping hits the ground face-first and has his head dribbled off the mat by five or six quick right hands from Gastelum. Bisping is out cold, and referee Goddard dives in to save the unconscious "Count" from further damage. Kelvin Gastelum adds another big name to his resume with a scorching first-round knockout of ex-champ Michael Bisping.
