Jonathan Goulet def. Kuniyoshi Hironaka, TKO (Punches) R2, 2:07 - Was named fight of the night, but I have yet to find it.
Cain Velasquez def. Brad Morris, TKO (Strikes) R1, 2:10
Rich Clementi def. Sam Stout, Decision (Split)

Jason MacDonald def. Joe Doerksen, TKO (Strikes) R2, 0:54

Mac Danzig def. Mark Bocek, Sub. (Rear-Naked Choke) R3, 3:48- Danzig may have lost the first round due to being taken down and frustrated by Bocek. The second saw Danzig land a couple knees and eventually get Bocek's back the the rear naked choke.

Michael Bisping def. Charles McCarthy, TKO (Arm injury) R1, 5:00- Bisping, despite giving up a takedown, looked impressive and strong at 185. He got the better of the standup and eventually

Nathan Quarry def. Kalib Starnes, Unanimous Decision - Do yourself a favor and just skip this bout. Extrmely boring, Starnes was cut for his embarrassing performance.

Rich Franklin def. Travis Lutter, TKO (Strikes) R2, 3:01- Lutter was able to get takedowns and get Franklin in trouble. Lutter was able to get a in mount and land strikes, but Franklin didn't buckle, and weathered a Lutter arm bar attempt. In the second round it wasn't good for Lutter as Franklin smashed a highkick to the face of Lutter. Lutter was dazed and tried to get a single leg until he was destroyed by hammerfists.

Georges St. Pierre def. Matt Serra, TKO (Knees to body) R2, 4:45- GSP has now dominated three straight elite fighters in the UFC. He took Serra down at will and punished him with strikes. He connected with kicks to the feet, and totally controlled the fight from start to finish. At the end, Serra was getting pummelled in the body until he was saved by the ref. The Canadian crowd was going crazy the entire fight and were one of the loadest I have heard.
*MMA Blaster readers were correct 21-7!
