Main Card (Fuel TV) • Cung Le (9-2) defeats Rich Franklin (29-7) via soul shattering KO (punch) Round 1, 2:17
Le earned KO of the night honors ($40K) for the devastating blow that planted Franklin on the canvas face first. If you combine the kickboxing and MMA record of the Saigon fighter you will see 20 career knockouts.
• Thiago Silva (15-3) defeats Stanislav Nedkov (12-1) via submission (arm-triangle choke) Round 3, 1:45
Huge win for Thiago. Silva's first win since his KO of Keith Jardine back in 2009 gets him back to his throat slashing ways and serves Stanislav Nedkov the first loss of his pro MMA career.
• Dong Hyun Kim (16-2-1) defeats Paulo Thiago (14-5) via UD (30-26, 30-27 x 2)
Kim gets back into the win column after dropping two straight with a dominating and exciting performance. He ended the contest with a homage to the great Kazushi Sakuraba, throwing double punches - boxing in the ears of his opponent. Thiago has now dropped four of his last five.
