Full Strikeforce at the Playboy Mansion II and Cage Rage 28 Results

With three knockouts, three submissions and a dominating decision victory during the broadcast portion of the card, Saturday's "Strikeforce at the Mansion II" did not disappoint. Moments after being floored by a punch from Joe Riggs, Kazuo Misaki struck back with a big right hand that sent Riggs to the canvas. Riggs covered up, but the ensuing flurry of punches from Misaki was enough to prompt ref Josh Rosenthal to bring a halt to the main event of the evening. MMAJunkie has full results:

Jesse Gillespie def. Dave Martin via split decision (27-30, 29-28, 29-28)
Brandon Magana def. Brandon Thatch via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
Eric Lawson def. Kenneth Seegrist via submission (rear naked choke) -- Round 1, 3:07
Luke Stewart def. Jesse Juarez via submission (arm bar) -- Round 1, 4:55

Josh Thomson def. Ashe Bowman via TKO (punches) -- Round 1, 1:14
Kazuo Misaki def. Joe Riggs via TKO (punches) -- Round 2, 2:29

Both Ishida and Thomson, who are expected to meet in a title match at some point in the near future, looked predictably phenomenal against their overmatched opponents. Terry Martin rebounded from his July 19th KO loss with a stunning knockout of his own, flooring Devela in the third frame after arguably dropping the first two rounds. And coming off a ten month hiatus, the 36-year-old Trevor Prangley showcased his wrestling prowess in controlling the rematch with Ruiz from start to end.

MMA Frenzy brings us results from last night's pared down Cage Rage offering, where Brad Pickett ran his current win streak to five straight with a third round TKO against the durable Anastas Jazbutis, and featherweight champ Robbie Olivier looked impressive in a hard fought three-round defense against challenger Leigh Remedios.

CR28 was a decidedly solid showing for the ProElite-owned promotion, but it comes along with the news that popular British heavyweight champ Mustafa Al-Turk inked a multi-fight deal with the UFC and has vacated his title. The venue for this show also looked miniscule on camera; indeed, the Troxy in London maxes out at 2,600 people (and can be scaled down to as few as 150). Cage Rage 27 in July was hosted at Wembley Arena, which has a capacity of 12,500.
