Full play-by-play after the jump.

Ricardo Arona (13-5) vs. Marvin Eastman (16-9-1)

Round 1: A pair of vicious kicks from Arona buckle the leg of Eastman, and Arona plows him to the ground. Eastman scoots his back against the cage as Arona tries to mount. Arona does mount and tries for a guillotine, but Eastman sweeps and stands. Arona with underhooks, then changes levels and drags Eastman down with a single leg. Eastman's corner screaming "he's gonna gas!" Arona takes side control, then jumps on Eastman's back with 30 seconds left. Time runs out with Arona looking for the RNC. 10-9 Arona.

Round 2: Very little action in the first few minutes of the second frame. The crowd boos until Arona ties Eastman up against the fence. Eastman comes forward with a big overhand right, but Arona ducks it and shoots. Eastman sprawls well this time. Eastman attacks at the very end of the round and appears to hurt Arona. After Big John steps in at the close of the frame, Arona is slow to get up. Looks like he may have injured his toe. 10-10.

Round 3: Arona scores a takedown (aided by the grabbing of Eastman's shorts) and begins punching away from Eastman's wide open guard. Arona working for a kimura on Eastman's left arm now. Some hard punches to the face and body of Eastman prompt him to try and escape. Eastman pushes off the fence, but Arona lifts him up and slams him to the mat in the center of the ring. Arona passes to Eastman's left side, moves to north-south, then Eastman's right as the fight ends. 10-9 Arona.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-28 Arona.

Paulo Filho (17-1) vs. Alex Schoenauer (14-9)

Round 1: Filho wades through a combination to tie Alex up with a waist lock, then drags him down. Schoenauer scoots his back against the fence and stands up, but trips as he escapes and soon finds himself in the same position. Finally, Alex frees himself. Filho shoots for another single leg against the cage, but Schoenauer defends and circles away. Schoenauer finally utilizes his reach advantage with some leg kicks, but Filho soon shoots and immobilizes him again. Filho did next to no damage, but did control position for almost the whole round. 10-9 Filho.

Round 2: Filho connects with a looping left that seems to stun Schoenauer, but only follows up with another tie-up against the cage. Alex shakes it off with relative ease this time. Paulo's trying to throw hands now, but he can't connect. He shoots and gets Schoenauer down again, once more against the fence, not a good spot to try for a sub. Schoenauer is crouching against the fence on his heels, and Filho is using his right knee for a sort of modified foot stomp. Crafty. Alex tries to clinch, but Paulo just ducks under and powers him into the cage. Same as last round, 10-9 Filho.

Round 3: Filho, doing his best imitation of the pitbull tatted on his chest, refuses to let go of Schoenauer's legs on another series of takedown attempts. Alex escapes and is booed by the crowd. After another minute of struggling for a takedown, Filho relents and direct Renzo Gracie's attention toward a problem with his glove. Convenient, since Filho looks completely gassed. Renzo removes the glove and waits for a replacement to be tossed into the cage. Gracie quickly tapes the glove up, the fighters touch mitts again and we're back in action. Schoenauer's corner urging him to finish the fight now; the clock must be winding down. Schoenauer shakes one last takedown attempt from Filho and pours it on with combinations in the last 30 seconds, but it's too late. 10-9 Filho.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-27 Filho.

Paulo Filho (18-1) def. Alex Schoenauer (14-10) via Unanimous Decision

Schoenauer looks incredulous when the decision is read. The crowd boos Filho during his post-fight interview.

 

Pedro Rizzo (16-9) vs. Jeff Monson (31-8)

Round 1: Not much action in the first 90 seconds as the two veterans feel one another out. Rizzo's wading in with some combinations, but is out again just as quickly each time. Nice leg kick from Rizzo elicits cheers from the crowd and prompts Monson to shoot for a double, which Pedro stuffs. Rizzo beginning to establish his jab, throwing more leg kicks. Monson shoots, gets stuffed again, and pulls guard. Rizzo wants no part of it and allows Monson to stand. More leg kicks from Rizzo as the round ends - now Monson's checking them. 10-9 Rizzo.

Round 2: Monson can't seem to find a way inside on Rizzo, and his takedown attempts are going nowhere. Rizzo keeping the Snowman out of range with a nice left jab. One seems to crumble Monson, who falls backward to guard. Rizzo won't follow him down, Monson recovers as Rizzo lurks above him, and Big John stands 'em up. In the last 30 seconds, a Rizzo leg kick buckles Monson's left leg, though Monson stays upright. 10-9 Rizzo.

Round 3: Monson pushes Rizzo against the cage and finally scores with a single-leg takedown, but Rizzo pops back to his feet immediately. Both guys looking pretty worn out. Rizzo comes over the top with a lazy right and eats a hard counter from Monson. Some sloppy exchanges on the feet close out the fight. 10-10.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-28 Rizzo.

Pedro Rizzo (17-9) def. Jeff Monson (31-9) via Unanimous Decision

Following the fight, Rizzo explains that he injured his shoulder 10 days ago and apologized for not delivering the knockout he wanted to show the Brazilian fans.

 

Murilo "Ninja" Rua (16-10-1) vs. Alex Stiebling (18-10-1, 1 NC)

Round 1: Ninja comes inside with a couple overhand rights. A left head kick right on the button lays "The Brazilian Killer" Stiebling out and Rua follows him to the mat. A few hammerfists later and Renzo Gracie steps in to rescue Stiebling.

Luciano Azevedo (15-7) vs. Milton "Miltinho" Viera (9-6-1)

Round 1: Miltinho trips Azavedo to the mat and begins to work from guard. Luciano keeping active from underneath, so Viera switches to north-south, then takes side control. Viera pulls his left leg over Azavedo's right arm to trap it, controlling well from the side and neutralizing the punches Azavedo is throwing up. Luciano rolls onto his side, and Milton immediately pounces to full mount. Azavedo tries to buck him off, but Viera rides and tightens up the mount. 10-9 Viera.

Round 2: Azavedo with a takedown; Viera's got a tight guard. Miltinho gets what looks like a fight-ending armbar, but Azavedo somehow escapes. Azavedo back to guard, then passes to Viera's right side. Viera with a lovely sweep, winds up in north-south, then Azavedo's side, then mount - then gets swept himself! Big John stops the action after an illegal knee or kick from Azavedo, but when he restarts the fighters, the round ends. 10-9 Viera.

Round 3: Azavedo trying to chop at Viera with left leg kicks, but Viera answers with some hard right hands over the top. When Azavedo shoots a sloppy double, Viera stuffs him to the mat and moves into Azavedo's guard. Viera stacks Azavedo up on his shoulders, but it only allows Azavedo to punch more freely. Azavedo escapes and takes Miltinho down, then moves to mount. Now it's Viera who sweeps and gets back to Luciano's full guard. Azavedo managed to do more damage from the bottom in the last round than Viera from the top, but Viera still controlled position for the majority. 10-9 Viera.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-28 Viera.

Milton "Miltinho" Viera (10-6-1) def. Luciano Azavedo (15-8) via Split Decision

 

Vitor Miranda (4-1) vs. Fabio Maldonado (11-3)

Round 1: The fighters clinch and ref Renzo breaks them up as the fight goes to the ground - hard to tell, but it looked like Vitor landed an illegal knee as Maldonado went down. Action restarts quickly and the two begin slugging it out, Fabio taking the center of the cage and Vitor the outside. Miranda lands some nice body kicks and combinations, but Maldonado is hurting him with an overhand right. Vitor changes it up now and tries to push the action, but Maldonado backs him into the cage. Gracie stops the action to look at a cut above the left eye of Miranda. They restart and Miranda continues chopping away at the left leg of Maldonado with kicks. Fabio points to his thigh and eggs him on, but moments later when the round ends, it looks like he's trying to check the kicks. Great first round, and a tough one to call. 10-9 Miranda.

Round 2: Miranda connects with a nice looking right hand, but Maldonado motions that he's unfazed. The two stand in the center of the cage and engage. Miranda is getting the slight better of the confrontation - even clinching a few times and sneaking in a couple knees - but it looks like his gas tank is draining quickly. Maldonado continues to point at his chin and urge Miranda to come at him. Miranda catches a Maldonado front kick and tries to sweep the other leg, but whiffs and falls on his ass. The crowd cheers. Maldonado turns it on a bit at the end of the round, but it's still Miranda's by a thin margin. 10-9 Miranda.

Round 3: Both men look exhausted, but Miranda's hands are literally at his sides as he paces backwards away from Maldonado. Miranda scores a takedown and pushes Maldonado around on his back for a minute until Renzo calls for a towel to wipe both men clean of Miranda's blood. They restart and Miranda tries to end it with some last-ditch knees from the Thai plum, but they don't connect. He does land with a few punches to the jaw of Maldonado toward very end of the round, but Fabio once again points to his face and tells Miranda to bring it. Too bad that doesn't score you points. 10-9 Miranda.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-27 Miranda.

Fabio Maldonado (12-3) def. Vitor Miranda (4-2) via Unanimous Decision

Huh. I'd say that I got this one wrong, but the crowd seems to think Miranda should've won as well.

 

Glover Teixeira (6-2) vs. Leonardo "Chocolate" Nascimento (7-5-1)

Round 1: Glover cracks Chocolate with a left hand early, but he survives. Chocolate tries a takedown, Glover sprawls, and Chocolate takes Texeira's back standing. Glover reverses into Chocolate's closed guard. Glover postures up and tries to pound away as he holds Chocolate's head down with a "non-consensual sex choke." The action stalls out and Big John stands them up. Chocolate tries another takedown, but Glover sprawls again. This time Glover locks in a tight guillotine. Big John saw that Chocolate went unconscious almost instantly and stopped the fight. I know it gets said a lot, but he really is the best ref in the biz.

Henrique "Chocolate" Nogueira (6-4-1) vs. Luis "Besouro" Dutra Jr. (8-2-1)

Round 1: Besouro pushes Nogueira's back to the fence, but Nogueira reverses and trips Dutra to the mat. Nogueira scrambles and locks up a tight standing guillotine, but Besouro drives forward and escapes, winding up in Chocolate's loose guard, raining bombs down. Besouro trying to pass, gets tied up in half guard with Nogueria's left side flush to the cage. Besouro opens up with a torrent of punches and it looks like Nogueira goes out momentarily. The ref has no choice but to step in. Good win for the last minute replacement.

Fausto Black (3-1) vs. Cassiano Tytschyo (13-6)

Round 1: Cassiano drags the late replacement Black down almost immediately. Moments later, Tytschyo has a deep, deep guillotine sunk in with his left arm. Black refuses to tap and gets put to sleep.

Alexandre "Pulga" Pimentel (7-0) vs. Luciano "Izzy" Correa (1-1)

Round 1: Pulga scores a takedown early and spends much of the first round trying to pound away from the closed guard of Izzy. The pro-Pimentel crowd boos Izzy, who's tying Pulga up well from underneath, and the place cheers when referee Renzo finally stands them up with about a minute left, but Pulga is soon back in the same position. 10-9 Pulga.

Round 2: 30 seconds into the frame, Pulga sends Izzy to the canvas with a nice left straight. Pulga dives down to the mat and into full mount. He looks like he may try for an armbar for a second, but decides instead to try and pound the Argentenian out. Izzy somehow survives and works Pulga back to full guard, where the action of last round repeats itself. Except this time Pulga takes mount and works what looks at first to be a tight kata-gatame, which Izzy escapes from after a moment. The round ends with Pulga back in Izzy's high guard. 10-8 Pulga.

Round 3: More of the same from the first two rounds. Domination from Pulga, though Izzy kept a little mroe active from the guard with punches. 10-9 Pulga.

Bloody Elbow scores the bout 30-26 Pimentel.
