There are seven live fights for this card, which means we may be here for close to four hours.
Jessica Aguilar Vs Cláudia Gadelha
Aguilar was wearing a luchador mask while walking to the ring.
Gadelha looked a step above over the former WSOF champ. Her striking was on point and she simply looked too strong for Aguilar. It was surprisingly easy for her.
Aguilar is taking a beating. Her face is all bloody from taking right hands from Gadelha. Aguilar also doesn’t have an answer. She’s getting beat to the punch, outstruck, and taken down. She needs to change something here.
Aguilar did start throwing a low kick to Gadelha’s lead leg and it affected Gadelha’s aggressiveness, but Aguilar needed to blast her to try and knock her out. It didn’t happen. Gadelha took her down late in the round to make sure it didn’t happen.
Winner: Cláudia Gadelha by way of unanimous decision
Antônio Silva Vs Soa Palelei
Silva ran down to the cage like he was the Ultimate Warrior.
Silva didn’t get knocked out in the first round, which is a good thing for him. But he didn’t look good either. Palelei didn’t look fantastic, but he did enough to win the round, including ending the round on top.
Welp, Bigfoot will live to fight another day. He had Palelei up against the cage and looked like he was too tired to finish him, but he hit Palelei hard enough to drop him and finish him.
Winner: Antônio Silva by way of 2nd round TKO
Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira Vs Stefan Struve
Really slow and plodding round, but I guess that’s expected here. Struve landed two big right hands, one of which rocked Big Nog and had him wobbly. Nog was able to back him against the cage and punch up and land, stopping Struve’s attack. Probably Struve’s round.
Big Nog had his back early and ended up in the mount, but Struve bucked him off. He started throwing high kicks which stopped Big Nog in his tracks and it became more of the slow and plodding round like the first. You’d probably give Struve this round too, because of control, but both rounds are close.
The third round was also hard to score. Big Nog got a takedown again, but couldn’t do anything with it. Struve was in control and landed the better shots, but Nog was the more aggressive fighter.
Winner: Stefan Struve by way of unanimous decision
Dileno Lopes Vs Reginaldo Vieira
This is the best fight by far. It was like a super fun wrestling match in that they traded spots. Vieira had a guillotine early. Lopes then had a guillotine in. And for the rest of the round, they were just winging punches. Lopes has a nasty cut over his left eye.
More fun back and forth on the feet from both guys in the second round. Vieira’s right hand is finding Lopes’ eyes. Both of them.
Lopes had him in another guillotine and Vieira was bleeding all over him. Vieira was just pounding away with hammer fists from the top while Lopes was trying to do the same, but from the bottom. These guys fought hard.
Winner: Reginaldo Vieira by way of unanimous decision
He won with scores of 29-28, 30-27, and 30-27.
Fernando Bruno Vs Glaico França
It’s getting tough to sit through these fights with guys we didn’t see. Franca controlled the round for the most part, but Bruno did get a takedown.
Franca took the round by being more aggressive and was working for a choke for much of the round.
Bruno looked more inspired in the round, taking Franca down and working for the choke. Back on the feet, Bruno was kicked low and had to take a time out. Then Franca got the takedown and choke and it was over with 19 seconds left in the round.
Winner: Glaico Franca by way of 3rd round submission
Antônio Rogério Nogueira Vs Maurício Rua
Shogun looked good early on with better movement. But then Lil’ Nog rocked him and he wobbled backward. Nog unleashed everything he had in the tank at Rua and Rua somehow survived. He was just winging punches. Nog went for a knee and slipped and nearly fell backward. That gave Shogun some time to recoup. Amazing round.
The second round was much slower and more methodical and you’d probably have to give it to Shogun.
Nog landed a big shot, but Rua didn’t get caught up and was able to keep the distance. Late in the round, Nog had him in a deep guillotine and Shogun pulled his head out. I think whoever gets this round will get the fight. I might give it to Nog.
Winner: Maurício Rua by way of unanimous decision
The scores were 29-28 across the board.
Bethe Correia Vs Ronda Rousey
— Bleacher Report MMA (@BR_MMA) August 2, 2015
There was a lot of sloppy boxing going on, but it didn’t last long. Ronda did some dirty boxing and it looked like she was going to try and take her down, but instead pushed her up against the cage. She landed a knee and a huge right hand to the temple and Bethe did a Ric Flair flop. It was called off.
Winner: Ronda Rousey by way of 1st round TKO
