For some reason theyre showing this live here in Canada
but not in the states.
As perhaps usual, we're starting late. First fight coming up shortly.
Update: Results should start flowing in between now and 1:15 PM ET.
Now we're finally underway. Maldonado-McSweeney is the opener.
Fabio Maldonado def. James McSweeney via TKO (punches)
Maldonado TKOs Sweeney in round 3. Arena nearly full for opener.
YES! Suck it McSweeney!
Fisher-Warburton up now. If you go by the Junkie scorecard, Fisher's down 1 round already.

Curse you McSweeny. First round went how I thought it would, but thats about it. Maldonado doesn't get tired because he moves like a turtle.
Called the Fisher decision.
Apparently someone killed the mic while the scores were being read so nobody heard them. They'll be posted later when the judges' scorecards are distributed.
Paul Sass def. Mark Holst via submission (triangle choke) - Round 1, 4:45
Edit: and lives up to the nickname once again
4:45 was the stoppage time. Holst has Das "Boots" coming.
3-0, 17 points
Good action so far. Hit first part of parley on Sass too.
Interesting scoring from Sherdog on Fisher-Warburton: They had Fisher losing 29-28. This win may have saved his job.
Broughton beats QUieroz by RNC. 1:43 R3.
Paul Sass, what a beast, no matter how hard you try you cant fight that triangle lol
4-0 24 points so far
Diabate's already taken a low blow early in their fight. Not the best 1st round for him, also lost his mouthpiece at one point.
Alexander Gustafsson via submission (rear-naked choke) - Round 2, 2:41
I should just stop making parlay bets.
Dang Diabate!! Finished 4-1 on the prelims with 22 points. That blew my parley as well
Some good action all around so far though
Got me pumped for the main card.
Claude Patrick def James Wilks via UD...30-27 on all three cards.
Claude has some nice top control. Hopefully Browne and Kongo bring the fireworks.
Cup Cheick strikes again!
nevermind, the point deduction was for the short grab, I was not paying attention.
An anti-climatic DRAW for Kongo/Browne.
3 28-28s. If only Kongo didn't grab the shorts.

draws suck but it's about time this guy got an actual penalty for throwing 5 knees to the groin of every opponent he faces. Learn to aim your knees.
Ironically, the point deduction was not for the nut shot...it was for grabbing Browne's shorts after he was warned.
