Big uppercut by Fitch as they separate. Fitch with a few more good punches and a knee. 10-9 Fitch. Still not a good round for him.

Marlon Moraes vs. Carson Beebe - Round 1 - Moraes comes out and throws some huge flurries. Beebe tries to fire back, Moraes crushes him and he goes down. That'll do 'er. Marlon Moraes wins by TKO (punches), round 1.

Josh Burkman vs. Steve Carl - Round 1 - Carl pushes Burkman into the cage. They're off the cage shortly after. Carl is pushing and Burkman hasn't looked comfortable yet. Head kick by Carl is blocked but he's looking for the takedown again. Burkman on top as they go to the ground and he lands a nice right hand from top. Burkman looking for a toe hold but doesn't have it locked correctly so he gives up on that. 10-9 Burkman I guess

Round 3 - Carl looking for another takedown. Burkman looking fr a front choke, can't get it, they're standing, Carl looking for the takedown again. Burkman looking for a guillotine later in the round and he rolls him into mount, trying for the finish. He has mount and is still working the choke. Carl defends, Burkman is on top in full mount and isn't really doing anything. So Carl is able to explode to his feet. then he almost dives into the choke again. This is a weird fight. 10-9 Burkman.

Round 4 - Burkman on top early, Carl looking for a triangle choke. He gets it. it's over. That fight was bad. Steve Carl wins by submission (triangle choke), round 4.
