Jan Blachovic – Ronaldo Sousa
Such a straightforward and monotonous fight is rarely seen not only within the framework of the main event, but also on the undercard. The fighters preferred to work extremely carefully and without regular attacks, especially for the Brazilian, who throughout the meeting constantly pressed Blahovic to the net and simply controlled, periodically making attempts to take a takedown, but each time to no avail. The Pole, on the other hand, traditionally shot Ronaldo in a standing position and inflicted a little less than four times as many accented punches, practically not trying to knock out his opponent.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] The fight ended with the announcement of the winner based on the referee's notes, while we predicted the total under 3.5 in rounds. [/ stextbox]
Mauricio Rua – Paul Craig
The Scotsman started this confrontation very cheerfully, shooting his counterpart at a distance, and if he was a little more powerful, he could send the Brazilian to rest, who, being pressed against the net in the first round, received a hail of punch. Despite this, Paul spent most of the second and third five minutes on his back, defending himself against the attacks of Roy, who tried to finish him from the top position, but to no avail, since Craig worked well in the guard and practically did not let his counterpart work.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] As a result of this meeting, the judges made an extremely unexpected split decision about a draw, while we predicted that Mauricio Rua would emerge as the winner. [/ stextbox]
Charles Oliveira – Jared Gordon
Having decided to take advantage of his advantage in the reach and a good stance in which he is constantly progressing, the Brazilian did not look for an opportunity to transfer Gordon from the first seconds in order to subsequently catch him on a submission. And he made the right decision, because in less than a minute and a half after the start of the first round, he was able to knock out his opponent.
[stextbox id = 'info'] Our prediction was that Charles Oliveira would win early by any method – and so it happened. [/ stextbox]
Antonio Arroyo – Andre Muniz
Not the brightest fight was thrown by natives of the contender Dana White and newcomers of the world's top promotion. If in the first round Arroyo still resisted, then later Muniz seized the initiative and very passively controlled his compatriot on the ground, periodically looking for and finding ways to submission, but without the necessary capture.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] The fight ended with the intervention of the judges in determining the winner. We predicted its early completion. [/ Stextbox]
Marcus Perez – Wellington Thurman
Half of the fight, half of the spectacular work in the stance on the part of both athletes – this is how you can characterize the first round of this fight. Apparently, trying to impress the audience, Perez wasted all his strength, since after that he began to lose in all aspects and miss more, but was able to hold out to the end, despite the dissection and even exploded at the end with a reliable knockout of Victoria, but to no avail.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] Not only Marcus Perez was the loser on the referee cards, but also our forecast for his victoria. [/ stextbox]
Sergio Moraes – James Kraus
If in the first round the Brazilian still had enough for some active actions, including attempts at takedowns, one of which turned out to be effective, then the next five minutes showed that it seemed time to say goodbye to him. A completely empty gas tank, as a result, a “bicycle” and a lack of desire to win in his native walls – this is how his performance can be characterized. Kraus methodically analyzed Moraes during this time, in the end, logically ending with a knockout.
[stextbox id = 'info'] Our forecast for this confrontation was that it ended early, as it happened. [/ stextbox]
Ricardo Ramos – Luis Eduardo Garagorri
Ramos started this fight very actively, applying more accented punches and carrying out three takedowns, the last of which bore fruit – being behind his back, Ricardo tried to sabmit Garagorri, but he managed to get to his feet. However, this did not help, because the Brazilian hung like a backpack and, ultimately, went to the submission.
[stextbox id = 'info'] Predictably, the Brazilian prospect turns out to be stronger than the older promotion newcomer and adds another plus to our asset. [/ stextbox]
Francisco Trinaldo – Bobby Green
If in the first round we saw a confrontation on the ground with an attempt by the Brazilian to sabmit the opponent and the subsequent control of the fight by Green, then the remaining five minutes passed in a standing position. Bobby traditionally began to work with his hands down, and Francisco continued to maintain concentration, despite the sagging cardio, but was less accurate and did not hit as often.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] It would seem that Bobby Green should take the fight with a close decision, but the local referees thought differently, putting Victoria on the account of the age Brazilian. Our prediction that the American will win does not come through. [/ Stextbox]
Worley Alves – Randy Brown
Worley started this fight very well, who quickly knocked Randy over and began to control him on the ground, trying to submit him twice – he defended perfectly and in the second round decided to go the same, but a little shorter way.
[stextbox id = 'info'] With his first attempt, he closed not only the triangle on the Brazilian's neck, but also our positive forecast for his Victoria. [/ stextbox]
Renan Barao – Douglas Andrade
We watched not the brightest fight – for the first two five minutes, Renan diligently used the entire space of the octagon, avoiding working in a stand and conducting takedowns, but did not look for submissions and just threw, because of which the judge was forced to raise the fighters over and over again. The third round was on his feet, and Douglas could finish his compatriot several times, but he didn’t want to, either because of the cardio drawdown.
[stextbox id = 'alert'] The fight ended with the determination of the winner by the judges, but we predicted the end of the earlier allotted time. [/ stextbox]
Ariana Lipsky – Isabella de Padua
From the first seconds of the meeting, Lipsky decided to go ahead and knocked down her counterpart, after which the athletes did a good job on the ground – it was there that she spent almost the entire second round, controlling her counterpart and catching her face with an apkik, for which her opponent was fined a point. At the end of this five-minute Isabella could have subscribed to Lipsky and had a very good grip, but she did not succeed in finishing the fight with a submission. In the extreme round, Lipski neatly finished this fight with the help of a fight, realizing that she definitely took the first ten minutes.
Tracy Cortez – Vanessa Melo
The athletes started the fight in exchange on their feet, but Cortez looked more interesting and active, and also tried to clinch with the aim of further transferring the confrontation to canvas – it did not work. However, without any problems, she was able to do this in the second and third five minutes, completely disassembling the counterpart and not leaving the Brazilian woman the slightest chance in her favorite fight.
[stextbox id = 'info'] We predicted Victoria Tracy Cortez by unanimous decision, which is exactly the outcome that ended this meeting. [/ stextbox]

Fight of the evening: was not awarded.
Evening performance: Charles Oliveira, James Kraus, Ricardo Ramos and Randy Brown.
Once again, the Brazilian evening of the UFC fights leaves questions about refereeing, as well as a stretch, but overlaps the entertainment of the previous promotion event held in Moscow. Someone, following its results, is likely to leave the organization, and maybe again announce his retirement. One way or another, once again we hope to observe the work being done to improve the refereeing, as well as the fact that the upcoming event UFC on ESPN 7, at least a little, will smooth out the overall impression of the extreme tournaments.
