With only a 2 hour broadcast we're not likely to see many/any undercard fights either......

Interesting that sherdog has j-lau at 145, and why not, only 1 loss in the ufc at 155. Lauzon also has a submission win over current WEC FW Champ mike brown. Also win or loss, joe hasnt gone to a decision.

As did I, Anothony has a Great chance as well does Luigi but I think this Fight will be in the Clinch for a significant amount of the Fight and Luigi is Great at trip Takedowns

Round 2 - Riddle uses an overhand right to secure the clinch and delivers knees to the body before forcing Bruno the mat. He again frees one leg and delivers elbows from half guard. The position worked well in the first round, and he again has success with elbows. Bruno ties up one of Riddle's arms and has the youngster looking confused. However, Riddle gets to his knees and rains down a series of elbows to the face and sideo of the head. Bruno shows damage from the flurry but again works to tie up Riddle. After rolling to his knees, Bruno nearly escapes, but Riddle takes his back and forces the fight to the back. Riddle gives up the position for half guard and continues popping Bruno with elbows and punches. One big blow lands with a thud, and he assures the ref he's OK. Bruno tries to escape but eats additional shots after leaving himself exposed. As Bruno gets to his feet, Riddle tags him with a knee to the body and locks in a guillotine. However, he eventually takes Bruno's back, locks in a hooks and then batters him with punches and hammerfists. With 10 seconds to go, Bruno wants to ride out the round, but Riddle punishes him for it with continued blows. MMAjunkie.com scores a dominant round for Riddle, 10-9.

Round 3 - Riddle looks fresh and light on his feet, but Bruno quickly connects with a right. Riddle closes the distance and forces the fight to the ground. Working from half guard, he pins Bruno against the fence and delivers a steady stream of punches to the face. Bruno tries to escape, but Riddle overpowers him to keep the dominant position. Bruno gets to his feet and looks for the escape, but Riddle takes his back and delivers punches and elbows to both sides of his head. Bruno simply takes the punishment and stays in the dangerous position with one knee on the mat. At least 50 punches connect as the referee stands nearby watching closely. A series of hammerfists finally force Bruno to cover up, and the referee issues a warning to fight back. Riddle now delivers elbows to the body and more hammerfists to the face. Riddle must be up to approximately 100 blows from this one exchange. Riddle finally forces Bruno to his stomach and tries to flatten out, but Bruno rolls over to his back and again allows Riddle to free one leg and batter him with a steady stream of shots. Riddle pours on the abuse in the final minute of the fight and begins putting some extra power behind the blows wanting to finish the fight. Bruno gets to his feet, and Riddle turns it on with punches, kicks and elbows desparate for the finish. He doesn't get it, but it should win him the fight. MMAjunkie.com scores a very dominant round for Riddle, 10-8.
