Generally we break these things down fight-by-fight, but for this event we're going to do one recap for the whole undercard. Not a lot of people watched this card and even less people watched the prelims, so perhaps someone will find this recap useful. If not, I'm used to it by now.

Alex Caceres (7-5, 2-3 UFC) vs. Damacio Page (15-8, 0-3 UFC)

Page took Cacares down right away in the first and second rounds, but couldn't handle Cacares' guard. He got submitted from the bottom by triangle early in the second.

Chris Cariaso (14-3, 4-1 UFC) vs. Josh Ferguson (12-5, 0-2 UFC)

Ferguson was surprisingly competitive but still dropped a unanimous decision. Cariaso had better takedowns and was just a little bit quicker, which led to the win. The flyweight division is really thin right now, and Cariaso might have earned a bout with Ian McCall with the win.

Andrew Craig (8-0, 2-0 UFC) vs. Rafael Natal (14-4-1, 2-2-1 UFC)

Natal clowned in the first and nearly got the finish in the second, but Craig recovered and pulled off the miracle win. He landed a monster head kick that put Sapo out, and offered up a post-fight interview that was all sorts of funny. Andrew Craig is for real, folks.

Marcelo Guimaraes (7-0-1, 0-0 UFC) vs. Dan Stittgen (7-2, 0-1 UFC)

Quite frankly, the bout was terrible. Neither man could get a takedown and didn't have much on the feet. Magrao turned into an angry animal over the last minute, grunting and growling his way to a split-decision win. Yes, it was as weird as it sounds.

Raphael Assuncao (16-4, 1-1 UFC) vs. Issei Tamura (7-2, 1-0 UFC)

Assuncao got hurt early, but he wasn't fazed. After taking over the first round, he came out in the second quickly finished the Japanese fighter.
