Main and Preliminary Fight Results of UFC 204

Leonardo Santos vs Adriano Martins

Both of these jiu jitsu fighters went at it in the first fight of the night, but unfortunately the fight consisted nothing more than a few leg kicks here and there. Santos may have won the match but overall the fight was pretty boring to watch.

 

Mike Perry vs Danny Roberts

While the first fight of the night might have been a little boring, the same couldn’t be said about this matchup between Mike Perry and Danny Roberts. Even though Perry might not have fought as tactically as Roberts, his sheer brute strength seemed to dwindle Danny down – eventually leading to the knockout from punches at 4:40 in the third round.

 

Marc Diakiese vs Lukasz Sajewski

During the first round of this fight Lukasz Sajewski seemed to have the upperhand against Mark Diakese, but Diakese fought smarter during the second round and ended the fight in a TKO from some pretty impressive knees and punches.

 

Leon Edwards vs Albert Tumenov

Albert Tumenov may have been winning this fight against Leon Edwards while they were fighting on their feet, but once the fight went to the ground Edwards just seemed to absolutely dominate. Edwards actually could’ve lost this fight when he abandoned the ground game in the second round, but fortunately he took Tumenov back down in the third round and got the submission at 3:01.

 

Damian Stasiak vs Davey Grant

This bantamweight fight consisted of a lot of good take downs from both opponents, and we even seen some hard kicks, knees and punches from Davey Grant as well. However, during the second round Damian Stasiak managed to get a grueling armbar on Grant that caused him to submit with barely more than a minute left in the third round.

 

Iuri Alcantara vs Brad Pickett

Iuri Alacantara hit Brad Pickett with a devastating spinning elbow early in the first round that led to a beautiful series of submission holds until Pickett was choked out by the triangle chokehold at 1:59 in the first round.

 

Mirsad Bektic vs Russell Doane

Mirsad Bektic was winning this fight in a spectacular fashion right from the start, taking Russell Doane down to the ground over and over until Bektic got the rear naked choke at 4:22 in the first round. We will be sure to see more interesting fights form Bektic in the future.

 

Stefan Struve vs Daniel Omielanczuk

Daniel Omielanczuk tried to capitalize on Stefan Struve not being the best fighter on his feet, but failed to do so as Struve kept taking the fight to the ground where he eventually got the submission from a D’Arce choke in the beginning of the second round.

 

Jimi Manuwa vs Ovince Saint Preux

Ovince Saint Preux may have been able to get a couple takedowns in the first round, but the punches and kicks from Jimi Manuwawa was far too much. Manuwa knocked St. Preux out with a dangerous left hook at 2:38 in the second round.

 

Gegard Mousasi vs Vitor Belfort

During the first round of the fight Gregard Mousasi appeared to be doing only slightly better than his opponent Vitor Belfort. However, once the second round went underway Mousasi went in with everything he had and hit Belfort with a nasty head kick and then followed through with some hard punches, a takedown, and then a flurry of even more punches to get the TKO at 2:43 in the second round.

 

Michael Bisping vs Dan Henderson

While Michael Bisping may have been the current middleweight champion, the legend Dan Henderson was destined to do everything in his power to take it from him before his retirement after this fight. Unfortunately, even though Henderson landed a couple big knock outs during the first two rounds of the fight, Bisping managed to recover and started slowly tearing Henderson apart piece by piece. Bisping ended up winning this fight by unanimous decision.
