Diaz tries to force the action with his boxing but he merely creates the space for Henderson to get a big takedown.

Score: Henderson 10-9 Score so far: Henderson20-18 For all the talk of the previous two fights changing the guard consider this; with BJ Penn at welterweight and Frankie Edgar at featherweight this is the first lightweight title fight to feature neither man in over six years. Having edged out Edgar over ten rounds Henderson now have the chance to impose himself on the division in a way Edgar never could by beginning his dynasty by clearly defeating Diaz. His key routes to victory are his tremendous wrestling, kicking and submission defense. Diaz on the otherhand will be hoping to put the champion under pressure with his boxing and potentially doing the seemingly impossible - submitting Henderson. By the way its worth noting that the main event is starting at what was the scheduled finish time of the event. Given that most would bet on this going the distance, this show is going to have an almighty overrun. Round 1: Henderson opens up with several kicks. He misses with one and Diaz closes the distance to push Henderson up against the cage. Diaz attacking the legs of Henderson.

A messy exchanges leads to Shogun giving up his back but Gustafsson is not able to capitalized.The threat posed by Shogun's leglocks really has stopped Gustafsson impose a wrestling-led game in this fight. Gustafsson hurts Shogun with a liver shot and the veteran has slowed right down. Gustafsson starts punishing the former UFC and Pride Champion in much the same way MacDonald did to Penn, just methodically using his size advantage and more varied offense to dissect the older man. Like MacDonald he doesn't take the risks necessary to finish the fight so Shogun gets to hear the final bell. The judges all have it to Gustafsson 30-27 (as do I) in what ended up as one-sided a fight as expected despite a surprisingly competitive opening round. Official Result : Alexander Gustafsson defeated Shogun Rua via uanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Round 2: Shogun starts the fight aggressively, marching forward and landing overhand rights on the chin of the larger man.

Gustafsson in real danger of being submitted but the Swede eventually manages to escape. Shogun still looking to attack the legs but Gustafsson able to evade. Gustafsson takes Shogun down, but doesn't impose himself on the ground. Shogun back on his feet and knocks Gustafsson down! Gustafsson gets back up and doing a good using his reach advantage to outpoint Shogun. Looks for a takedown towards the end but can't get it. Crazy opening round - very back and forth action there. However Gustafsson has the slight advantage to earn the 10-9 on my scorecard. Score: 10-9 Gustafsson BJ Penn vs Rory MacDonald Round 3: For a man often derided as a front-runner Penn does an admirable job in digging dip to mount some real offense at the beginning of the final round. He pushes MacDonald and threatens with a takedown. But MacDonald was more than equal to the task. A slight slip does not derail MacDonald's momentum. Penn's second wind seems to have passed with MacDonald now able to easily keep things ticking over while striking from distance. What he is not doing is putting together the sustained offense to put Penn in danger of being stopped, like he did in the second. It would seem that MacDonald has settled for a decision victory and so the fight is somewhat petering out. MacDonald taunting Penn as the fight ends with Penn having been totally outfought. What was most impressive was the way MacDonald's striking has matured - the gaps in his technique that were still evident against Che Mills were long gone. Interesting interview with Rory MacDonald; he challenges Carlos Condit and engages in some low-level swearing. Official Result: Rory MacDonald defeated BJ Penn via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) Round 2: MacDonald lands the first major blow of the second round with another standing elbow. The fight is becoming a more brutal replay of the Penn vs. Diaz with the veteran being backed up against the cage by the pulverizing offense of the younger fighter. Penn does fire back with a right hand but MacDonald is just on another level tonight. MacDonald corners him against the cage and just starts destroying the former champion. Liver punches, kicks to the body, short punches to the head, high kicks are all deployed in a blistering one-side exchange that has the fight on the brink of being stopped. MacDonald starts showboating before taking Penn down with authority. The fight ends with Penn all but beaten. This is promising to be an even more emphatic defeat than the Diaz fight. Score: 20-18, MacDonald Round 1: BJ Penn starts out as the aggressor. Tries to repeat his tactics against Jon Fitch where he tried to catch the wrestler off guard by going for a takedown - MacDonald able to block easily. MacDonald attempts a takedown but can't get it. MacDonald doing a good job of striking against Penn from range - landing jabs and kicks from a safe distance.

Tremendous knockout that brought a fight back to life that after a slightly lethargic start to the second round. Official Result: Matt Brown defeated Mike Swick via knockout at 2:31 of the second round Round 1: Here we go! Mike Swick for obvious reasons looks very slender compared to Matt Brown. Feeling out process to start, with both fighters threatening with offense but not connecting. Brown gets the takedown and starts working the submission. Working for a D'Arce choke, gets it locked in. Swick doing well to mitigate the pressure and manages to survive. With Swick's head now free he gets to push the action from top position.

Early on he's timing Phan's aggressiveness right now; as soon as Phan comes within distance he's hitting him with good shots. He's following leg kicks with punches from the same side, and then combinations; Phan is not getting into a rhythm early because Siver is really working him over. Phan is getting eaten up here; Siver is shell-shocked right now as Siver is just taking him apart now. He's moving forward but not throwing much because the German is throwing early and often. He's doing a kick-boxing version of the slap boxing style that the Diaz boys do; he drops Phan with 90 seconds left, who quickly recovers.
