JOSE ALDO VS. CHAD MENDES
Round 1 – Mario Yamasaki is our referee and we’re under way. Aldo looks much larger than Mendes in the octagon. Mendes landing his own legkicks as Aldo times them. Aldo then fires an answer to one that lands brutally. Mendes ducks a hook and misses a takedown attempt that Aldo uses correct wrestling defense to avoid. That’s something to watch as the fight goes on. Quick break for a cup shot but Aldo is ready to go. Aldo lands a wicked uppercut and Mendes dives for an outside single leg that he again defends perfectly. Aldo defends another shot beautifully and Mendes is beginning to get more tentative compared to how he opened. Aldo is stalking but is being careful to not keep his feet planted. Aldo throws a knee that Mendes uses for a takedown attempt but Aldo is defending well. Mendes is throwing knees to the back of Aldo’s legs. Aldo gets a small window of separation and levels Mendes with brutal knee and follows it up with a wicked right to the downed Mendes. Yamasaki quickly breaks it up before Aldo fires another strike. Aldo is so excited he sprints out of the cage and begins celebrating with the fans. It takes awhile to finally get the reluctant Aldo back to the Octagon but they do for the announcement.
Jose Aldo (c) defeats Chad Mendes via KO (knee) at 4:59 of Round 1.
VITOR BELFORT VS. ANTHONY JOHNSON
Round 1 – Johnson attempts a poor front kick and throws several wild shots. He looks massive. Belfort fires a kick but Johnson catches it and inside trips Belfort down to the mat. Belfort recovers and pulls guard after a hard shot from AJ. Another front kick to a takedown attempt by AJ. Belfort sprawls and uses the cage to stay up. Referee Dan Miraglotta separates them.

ROUSIMAR PALHARES VS. MIKE MASSENZIO
Round 1 – Leon Roberts is our referee and we’re under way. Nasty inside legkick rises a little high and clips the side of Massenzio’s cup. Palhares misses a cross knee pick and goes for a double leg. Massenzio blocks but Palhares takes another shot and pulls guard directly into a heel hook and Massenzio’s knee explodes… brutal finish and Palhares quickly let’s go. Amazing display of BJJ.
Rousimar Palhares def. Maike Massenzio via sub (heel hook) at 1:03 of Round 1.
ERICK SILVA VS. CARLO PRATER
Round 1 – Fighters looks to feel each other other but then Silva lands a punch and then wicked knee that buckles Prater. Silva quickly pounces and that’s it. Prater is clearly hurt badly and pointing to his shoulder but apparently the fight will go as a DQ. One punch clearly hit the back of the head but the rest were legal. Replay shows the punches (save for one) landing on the side of the head and Joe openly disagrees with Mario Yamasaki in the Octagon. Tough but bad call for Silva. Expect the UFC to review this since there is no AC. Silva shows Yamasaki respect in defeat.
