I missed the Facebook fights, but Gleison Tibau beat Kurt Pellegrino by split decision and Mike Pyle beat Ricardo Almeida by unanimous decision. The first SpikeTV fight is Edson Barboza vs. Anthony Njokuani.
1. Edson Barboza vs. Anthony Njokuani
Barbosa is laying into everything he’s throwing. He’s thrown some nasty kicks to the body and rocked Njokuani with a right hand. He also landed an upper cut which staggered him as well. He woke Njokuani up, though Njokuani took a finger into the eye. The round ended with Njokuani looking more mad than hurt.
Better round for Njokuani as he put Barboza down and if Barboza wasn’t able to kick him off, Njokuani would’ve ended it. Barboza got a takedown, but Njokuani was way more active and Barboza had to fight more defensively.
Barboza has become more of the agressor in the round and was doing a good job at mixing his punches and kicks. He had Njokuani on the defensive. Njokuani threw a nasty flying knee that stopped him in his tracks for a bit, but Barboza stayed on the aggressive. Near the end of the round Barboza threw a reverse kick that landed hard. He’s going to win the decision.
Winner: Edson Barboza by unanimous decision
2. Eliot Marshall Vs. Luiz Cane
This was a weird one. Marshall stumbled and might’ve hurt his leg. He fell backwards after a Cane punch and Cane threw about 100 punches in a row before it was stopped. Marshall did a good job blocking a lot of it, but it was just too long for him to be on his back.
Winner: Luiz Cane by way of 1st round TKO
