> Merab Dvalishvili (7-4, 0-2 UFC) vs. Terrion Ware (17-8, 0-3 UFC)

Merab got an early takedown and did a ton of ground and pound, landing a lot of punches and elbows. Ware managed to get to his feet with about two minutes left but Merab took him right down again and did more damage. Ware managed to get up again with 30 seconds left and Merab lit him up standing. He landed a really nice combo of punches and body and head kicks right before the round ended. 10-8 Dvalishvili

Merab closed the round landing punches to the head and body. 10-9 Dvlaishvili, 20-17 overall

Merab took Ware down 30 seconds in and held him down the whole round. Ware's corner was talking about a hand injury for him, which may explain his performance here. Merab never let up the entire round and I didn't see a strike count but it looked like it had to be over a hundred landed to maybe 10 for Ware in the third round. It was just a mauling and, while he never came close to a finish, he never stopped landing punches and elbows the whole round. 10-8 Dvalishvili, 30-25 overall

Official result - Merab Dvalishvili (8-4( by unanimous decision (30-25 x 3)

Dvalishvili called out Sean O'Malley in his post-fight promo. The announcers had been talking about that potential matchup during the fight. O'Malley has a lot of buzz and is a good name to call out for an undercard fighter. 

> Ramazan Emeev (17-3, 2-0 UFC) vs. Stefan Sekulic (12-2, 0-0 UFC)

Slow start as Emeev just stalked Sekulic around the cage with both guys just trying to measure the distance. Emeev was blocked on a takedown attempt. Sekulic actually landed a takedown but Emeev folled through and to his feet. Sekulic controlled a cage clinch for about a minute. After breaking, Emeev got a takedown but Sekulic got right up. With 30 seconds left, Emeev rocked him with a knee to the head and followed up with punches and Sekulic was down. Emeev with a choke attempt and landing punches as the round ended. 10-9 Emeev

Round 2 was much slower in terms of action. Emeev controlled the Octagon the entire round, chasing Sekulic around the cage. Sekulic had a couple of takedown attempts and briefly got Emeev down at one point. Emeev landed a few good strikes from distance. Sekulic was landing some leg kicks. Very close and it could really go either way but Emeev's aggression probably takes it for him. 10-9 Emeev, 20-18 overall

Emeev was again the aggressor for the entire round. Sekulic had a couple of takedown attempts and on one of them, Emeev rolled through and landed on top but didn't do a lot of damage. Emeev landed the harder strikes and scored a knockdown at one point. Close round but Emeev shoudl take it. 10-9 Emeev, 30-27 overall

Official result - Ramazan Emeev (18-3) by unananimous decision (29-28, 30-27 and 30-26)

> Adam Yandiev (9-0, 0-0 UFC) vs. Jordan Johnson (9-0, 3-0 UFC)

Johnson was way bigger and it showed as he took Yandiev down over and over again and landed a ton of ground and pound when he did. He secured mount a couple of times but Yandiev managed to eascape. He did get a hard warning for grabbing the fence. Johnson had a rear naked choke with about a minute left and it was tight. Yandiev looked like he was about to tap and then somehow escaped from it but Johnson moved into mount, landing ground and pound till the ned of the round. 10-8 Johnson

> Magomed Ankalaev (10-1, 0-1 UFC) vs. Marcin Prachnio (13-3, 0-1 UFC)
Light Heavyweights

Ankalaev stalked Prachnio, landing combos seeemingly at will. He was mixing in high kicks with very accurate head strikes. Prachnio did land a few strikes. Ankalaev then rocked Prachnio with a punch combo and then landed a vicious head kick that knocked Prachnio out. Ankalaev landed a few head strikes on the ground before Herb Dean had time to move in and stop it but Ankalaev looked out cold fro the head kick.

Official result - Magomed Ankalaev (11-1) by KO (head kick) at 3:09

Ankalaev couldn't have looked better here. He's litterally 1 second away from being undefeated as he was dominating Paul Craig for the whole fight in his UFC debut before getting tapped out at 4:59 of the 3rd round to an arm triangle. In a pretty shallow division, he could be a title contender fairly quickly with a few more performances like this. 

> Mairbek Taisumov (27-5, 6-1 UFC) vs. Desmond Green (21-7, 2-2 UFC)
Lightweights* (Taisumov missed weight by 5 pounds- 161 pounds)

Green was actually winning the round before Taisumov landed a nice high kick and followed up with punches that knocked Green down. Green was up quickly but that was the most significant damage and probably enough to take a close round. 10-9 Taisumov, 20-18 overall

Another close round. Green actually had an advantage in total strikes landed for the fight but Taisumov landed the harder shots throughout and controlled the pace for the entire fight. Taisumov landed a couple of really hard kicks in this round to the head and the body. 10-9 Taisumov, 30-27 overall

Official result - Mairbek Taisumov (28-5) by unanimous decision (30-27 x 3)

Crowd loved Taisumov's post-fight promo where he pleaded for a spot in the top 10 after having six straight wins and also said that he needs to get a working visa so he'll be able to fight in the US.

He also got the only takedown of the round but didn't do a ton of damage.  Yan did land some shots and had the crowd heavyily behind him but Son took this round. 10-9 Son

Khalid took the back and was landing hard shots and Dolloway cowered up and basically quit fighting. Khald just kept landing punches and ref Herb Dean was warning him to fight back but wouldn't stop it. Dolloway was flat on his back and not fighting back at all and Khalid just kept landing punches until the round end. I scored it 10-8 Murtazaliev at the end of the round. 

Dolloway stayed down for a few seconds flat on his stomach and then kind of sat  up. Herb Dean asked him if he wanted to fight anymore and he said no, so it was stopped. Stoppage was at least 30 seconds late and this was one of the worst late stoppages I've ever seen. 

Official result - Khalid Murtazaliev (14-2) by TKO (punches) at 5:00 of Round 2

Kunchenko landed some kicks of his own and seemed to be finding his range with head strikes more in the last minute. Alves did land a nice head kick followed by a leg kick with about 30 seconds left. 10-9 Kunchenko but close

> Andrei Arlovski (#12, 27-16 1 NC, 16-10 UFC) vs. Shamil Abdurakhimov (#14, 18-4, 3-2 UFC)

Shamil got an early takedown but wouldn't go to the ground with Arlovski. He got another and this time he did but did almost nothing on the ground. Ref warned them several times and, despite a few body punches by Shamil, he stood them up with about two minutes left. Standup was just about even although Arlovski did rock Shamil with a short uppercut with about a minute left. 10-9  Abdurakhimov but it was close

Shamil caught a kick and got an early takedown. He landed some punches but Roberts stood them up fairly quickly. More boos from the crowd before the standup.

Nothing happened in the 3rd except for a couple of fouls by Shamil. Both guys were exhausted. Both had takedown attempts blocked. Neither guy landed much of anything. Really, it was almost a 10-10 round but gun to my head, I'd give it to Shamil. Terrible fight. 

Official result - Shamil Abdurakhimov (19-4) by unanimous decision (29-28 x 2; 30-27)

Krylov went for a heel hook early but Blachowicz quickly escaped and moved into side control. He methodically controlled Krylov before moving into position to take the back but instead secured an D'Arce choke. Krylov fought it off but tapped just as he looked like he was going to pass out. 

Official result - Jan Blachowicz (23-7) by submission (D'Arce Choke) at 2:41 of the 2nd round
