And hopefully a card that can still deliver the typical solid WEC showing despite taking a few unexpected hits yesterday at the weigh-ins. Tonight's prelims should get underway sometime in the 5 PM hour, with the main card starting at 8 PM ET-not 9 PM! It's a 2 hour TV broadcast, watch for them to make every attempt to be done by 10 PM to avoid going directly head-to-head with TUF 8 on Spike.

6 PM edit: We're underway!
Prelims (may not air on TV):
Rani Yahya beat Yoshiro Maeda by submission (guillotine) at 3:30 of round 1.
Danny Castillo beat Rafael Dias by TKO (strikes) at 2:54 of round 2.
Carmelo Marrero beat Steve Steinbeiss by split decision, 29-28 Marrero, 29-28 Steinbeiss, 29-28 Marrero.
Jose Aldo beat Jonathan Brookins by TKO (strikes) at 45 seconds of round 3.
Aaron Simpson beat David Avellan by KO in 18 seconds.
Donald Cerrone vs. Rob McCullough

TV fights (live on Versus):
Jake Rosholt beat Nissen Osterneck by TKO (strikes) at 3:48 of round 2.
Leonard Garcia beat Jens Pulver by TKO (strikes) at 1:12 of round 1.
Chael Sonnen beat WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho by unanimous decision, 3 30-27s, in a NON-TITLE match.
Main Event: Mike Thomas Brown (Mike Brown) beat WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber by TKO (strikes) at 2:23 of round 1 to become the NEW WEC Featherweight Champion!

For those who missed it yesterday, Filho will be fined 25% of his fight purse for missing weight. An undetermined part of that will go to Sonnen. There are also claims, at least according to Sonnen's corner (specifically Matt Lindland), that if Sonnen wins, Filho will hand the title belt over to Sonnen. We'll see.

Enjoy the fights when they start-remember, hands up, chin down, let 'em fly and no illegal blows!

Weekly says 5:30 PM ET, which is about the start time I predicted. So hopefully results will start flowing in about 30 minutes or so, when they do I'll start posting them.
As usual I'll be getting prelim results primarily from Weekly & Junkie.

Is the list on the first post the order in which the fights will proceed?

For TV it should be, for prelims probably reverse it.

UPDATE: Start time has been tentatively pushed back to 6 PM.

Edit: We're underway! First post will be updated after this...Yahya subs Maeda (guillotine) in 3:30.

-Yoshiro Maeda vs. Rani Yahya
R1 – Both fighters look willing to keep it standing early before Yahya starts working for the takedown and gets caught in a guillotine choke as he puts Maeda on his back. Yahya has an arm in and patiently works his head out after more than a minute in the choke. He immediately starts to ground and pound, but Maeda gets the fight back to the feet and they clinch. Yahya secures a guillotine while standing and drops down to his back, the choke still on. Maeda tries to defend, but can't hold on and taps out.

Danny Castillo vs. Rafael Dias
Round 1
Castillo starts winging punches that miss. Dias is more technical and hits his opponent with straight punches this puts Castillo on his heels, and then causes him to look for a takedown. After some good takedown defense the fighters separate. Dias then attempts a takedown and Castillo sprawls. They stand and Castillo lands a nice uppercut that puts Dias on his back. After a moment of Castillo standing over his opponent, referee Jorge Alonso stands them up. On the feet, the fighters keep up a good pace throwing punches. In the clinch, Dias looks for a guillotine, but Castillo wisely moves away. With a minute left the fighters exchange leather again. An overhand haymaker that turns in to a shot for Dias misses. 10-9 Dias.

Depending on how the other fights go Yahya-Maeda could make TV tonight time permitting.

-Carmelo Marrero vs. Steve Steinbeiss
R1 – Steinbeiss lands an early head kick and seems intent on keeping the fight standing, but Marrero seems just as intent to take it down and does so little more than a minute into the round. Steinbeiss works the fight up, gets taken down again and Marrero starts his ground and pound attack. Steinbeiss tries to get up, but Marrero uses his wrestling to keep him down. Steinbeiss is doing a good job of stymieing Marrero's ground and pound and searching for submissions and throwing elbows from the bottom. Marrero scores with the takedowns, but does little with them.

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Steinbeiss

R2 – Steinbeiss starts off strong again with another head kick, Marrero immediately starts working for the takedown, and gets it. He does a little ground and pound, but being ineffective, Marrero switches to a Kimura attempt, but Steinbeiss defends and works his way to the feet. Steinbeiss lands a body kick then just misses with a hard kick to the head. Marrero appears tired in going for the takedown repeatedly, but getting shucked off by Steinbeiss, who pushes Marrero over and starts his own ground and pound attack, landing numerous elbows to the side of the head.

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Steinbeiss.

Looks like a lot of people are about to be 0-3.

R3 – Marrero looks exhausted starting off round three. Steinbeiss starts to pick him apart with a combination of boxing punches and leg kicks, before going high and landing a strong head kick. Marrero shoots again, but not with the same fire as early in the fight, he seems more just to be holding on, trying to survive. Steinbeiss is having a relatively easy time defending the takedowns and turning Marrero to his back. Steinbeiss brings it back to the feet where Marrero lands a solid overhand right and a roundhouse kick to the ribs, Steinbeiss clinches, but gets taken down for his efforts. Marrero starts dropping short elbows and punches on Steinbeiss before finding a guillotine choke. Steinbeiss escapes and they lock up until rounds end.

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Marrero.

Finally got one. Gees thought I was going to get shut out three times in a row.

11/5/08 6:50:56PM
Phew. Thought i was about to go 0-3 there. The way weekly described round one, it kinda sounded like Steinbeiss laned a head kick, then got taken down and controlled for most of the round, so i figured alot of judges would of scored that differently to weekly.

-Jose Aldo vs. Jonathan Brookins
R1 – Brookins easily has the size and reach advantage, but Aldo starts off doing a good job with crisp boxing technique and some brutal leg kicks. He appears to be much faster than Brookins. Aldo is being very effective with several kicks to the inside of Brookins' right thigh, and then starts lighting him up with boxing combinations.

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Aldo.

R2 – Aldo finally comes from the outside with a kick to Brookins' right leg and sends him to one knee, but he bounces right back up. Aldo continues to stalk the taller fighter and keeps rocking him with his boxing. Brookins tries for the takedown, but Aldo fends him off and starts attacking the leg again. Brookins is now noticeably feeling the effects of the leg attack.

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Aldo.

R3 – Aldo continued his leg assault before landing a straight right that dropped Brookins and his mop of hair to the mat. Aldo was relentless then, following up with several more strikes before the referee stopped the fight, handing the Tito Ortiz protégé a loss.

This Aldo kid, I have a feeling that he's really going to be something in the next year or two. Keep an eye on him.

-David Avellan vs. Aaron Simpson
R1 – Simpson comes out firing, dropping Avellan with a big overhand right, follows with a couple more shots for good measure before the referee steps in and waves it off.

-Rob McCullough vs. Donald Cerrone
R1 – They start off with some one-for-one exchanges before McCullough drops Cerrone to a knee with a straight right. Cerrone pops right back up and clinches before they separate and start trading blow for blow again. Another right hand sends Cowboy to the mat, but he pops right back up again, but McCullough is starting to land with more frequency both with his punches and leg kicks. Just as McCullough gains momentum Cowboy stops it with a straight right that sends McCullough to the canvas. Cowboy immediately mounts and unleashes a ground and pound assault, brutalizing McCullough's face with punches and forearms. McCullough turns, nearly giving up his back, but works into Cowboy's guard. They get up and the referee has McCullough's cut checked, they are allowed to continue but McCullough's face is a crimson mask. Cowboy drops McCullough again, he gets up and eats a knee and gets dropped with another right hand. Cowboy follows him down, but McCullough rides out the round.... WOW!!!!

MMAWeekly scores the round 10-9 for Cerrone.

I doubt we'll get to see it but this is the fight I want aired!
