Chris Beal vs Tateki Matsuda - Fight - Apologies for the brevity of this description, we had brief technical issues. Matsuda had a solid first round, landing leg kicks but Beal was successful with his boxing as well. In rounds two and three, Matsuda continued with the leg kicks, but in both rounds was sloppy looking for takedowns and ended up in bad positions as a result. It appeared clear that Beal earned the decision.

Camozzi trying to stand back up, Natal working to hold him down. Camozzi does get back to his feet and now Natal pushes him back into the cage. 10-9 Natal for me.

Round 2 - Missed the start of the round thanks to a storm taking out my DirecTV signal. Takedown by Natal comes easily but Camozzi manages to get to his feet and he lands a nice elbow against the cage. Head kick by Camozzi. I won't score that round since I didn't see it all.
