Brent Wilson may not be able to file a report tonight so we'll post results as they happen
Vinc Pichel b Chris Saunders on scores of 20-18, 19-19 and 20-18. Pichel won the second round for sure. I had Saunders winning the first but two judges didn't have that. Both fighters seemed to indicate they thought Saunders won the first and were expecting to go to a third overtime round.
Al Iaqunita b Andy Ogle via late first round stoppage. Iaquinta knocked him down twice, the second he didn't recover from and after a few punches on the ground it was stopped. 4:44
Iaquinta said Ogle was a great guy and it felt kind of weird to fight him.
Ogle came off so ridiculously likeable in his interview after losing. If he can improve and be a decent UFC fighter, he'll be a star.
Semifinals next Friday night:
James Vick vs. Michael Chiesa
Al Iaquinta vs. Vinc Pichel
And on 7/7 for the interim title
Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao. It was the only real choice once Michael McDonald was injured.
