UFC – Fight for the Troops 2 Results

Lightweight: Melvin Guillard d. Evan Dunham (TKO – Round 1, 2:58)

In a night of impressive performances, no fighter stands out more than Melvin Guillard.  “The Young Assassin” was completely overwhelming on offense, battering Dunham with a constant series of strikes.  An illegal knee at the end wouldn’t have changed this outcome, as a very talented Evan Dunham was soundly defeating by a rising lightweight contender in Melvin Guillard.

Heavyweight: Matt Mitrione d. Tim Hague (TKO – Round 1, 2:59)

Mitrione continued to improve his game with a nice win over Tim Hague.  Mitrione looked very sharp with his strikes and kept consistent pressure on his opponent.  Mitrione showed good power and kept pushing the action.  Hague looked completely unprepared for a steadily improving Matt Mitrione.

Featherweight: Mark Hominick d. George Roop (TKO – Round 1, 1:28)

Hominick was super efficient with a number of devastating punches.  Roop took some brutal shots and appeared to be out on his feet.  Despite protests when the fight was stopped, Roop could barely congratulate Hominick without nearly falling over.  Hominick secured a Featherweight Title shot with this convincing victory.

Heavyweight: Pat Barry d. Joey Beltran (Unanimous Decision)

I’m very pleased that Barry was able to score the victory, but somewhat surprised.  Beltran seemed to be very active and I was worried he would get the victory.  He was sloppier with his strikes and missed quite a bit, but he held Barry against the cage and seemed to land a bit.  In the end, Barry’s leg kicks were too much for Beltran to handle.  At the end of the fight, Beltran’s left leg was completely battered and Barry got the win.  “HD” could have really been more aggressive, but a win is a win.

Lightweight: Matt Wiman d. Cole Miller (Unanimous Decision)

Wow, Matt Wiman was dominant.  At no time did Cole Miller appear to have a chance in this fight.  Wiman kept Miller on his toes with great striking and was extremely active while in dominant ground positions.  Wiman laid it on Miller for the entire fifteen minutes in a very frightening display of dominance.

Lightweight: Yves Edwards d. Cody McKenzie (Submission – Round 2, 4:33)

This ended up being a very fun fight.  Edwards controlled most of the first round, though McKenzie managed to work in some of his sloppy offense.  McKenzie did a great job controlling Edwards in the second round and worked hard to submit the veteran.  In the end, McKenzie made one too many mistakes and got choked out by Edwards.

Welterweight: DaMarques Johnson d. Mike Guymon (Submission – Round 1, 3:22)

Johnson looked sharp on the ground, outworking Guymon and catching him with a nasty submission.  Johnson appeared to injure Guymon with a super tight body triangle.  Joe Rogan speculated that Guymon had some broken ribs.

Featherweight: Rani Yahya d. Mike Brown (Unanimous Decision)

Yahya absolutely dominated Brown, who looked like a shell of the dominant fighter we’ve seen in the WEC.  Yahya made a great debut at 145 controlling just about every aspect of this fight.

Lightweight: Waylon Lowe d. Willamy Friere (Unanimous Decision)

Lowe did a nice job controlling Friere with solid wrestling.  Dan Miragliotta continues to embarrass himself with needless stoppages to stand fighters up.  Friere tried to work some submission, which were thwarted by poor refereeing and the strength of Waylon Lowe, who coasted for the second half of the fight.

Welterweight: Charlie Brenneman d. Amilcar Alves (Unanimous Decision)

Bantamweight: Chris Cariaso d. Will Campuzano (Unanimous Decision)
