In the main event, Ryan "The Real Deal" Ford, making his promotional debut after a less than amicable split from the MFC, knocked out Johnny "JJ" Davis. Although Ford won his last fight in the MFC, he was unhappy with his handling in Canada's top fight promotion, so he jumped ship to Aggression MMA.
In the co-main event, which featured a battle of undefeated fighters, Josh Hill won the vacant Aggression MMA Bantamweight Championship with a unanimous decision victory over Diego Wilson.
Other winners included Dave "The Pain Train" Mazany, Adam Lorenz, Kurt Southern, Evan Sanguin, Mukai Maromo and Jason Gorny.

CCC 3 RESULTS: Jens Pulver, Chase Beebe and Felice Herrig Win in Chicago Cagefighting Championship - 3/5/11
In the main event, Jens "Little Evil" Pulver won a decision over local fighter Wade Choate. From 2008 to 2010, Pulver, the first-ever UFC Lightweight Champion, lost 6 straight fights. Five of those losses came in the WEC. The now-defunct UFC sister promotion cut ties with Pulver a year ago. In his first fight outside of the Zuffa umbrella in over 4 years, Pulver got choked out by Diego "Dos Pistolas" Garijo in just over a minute at War on the Mainland in August 2010.
The new year has been a different story for Jens Pulver, who is now 2-0 in 2011. In January, Pulver submitted Mike Lindquist (6-19) and this past weekend, despite a broken foot suffered in the first round (pictured below), Pulver eked out a split decision win over Choate. Pulver has now put together back-to-back wins for the first time in nearly 4 years.

STRIKEFORCE: FEIJAO VS HENDERSON RESULTS: Dan Henderson Wins Light Heavyweight Championship - 3/5/11
In the main event, 40-year-old Dan "Hendo" Henderson won the Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Championship with a knockout victory over Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante. Henderson suffered a flash knockdown in the first round, but used his wrestling instinct to bring Feijao to the mat, which allowed the veteran fighter time to regain his composure. For the remainder of the fight, Henderson used his Olympic-level Greco-Roman wrestling to control Feijao, until he was able to use his patented straight right hand to drop the champion and take his title.
BELLATOR 35 RESULTS: Lyman Good, Jay Hieron, Rick Hawn and Brent Weedman Advance to Semifinals - 3/5/11
In the main event, the winner of the first season welterweight tournament and former Bellator welterweight champion Lyman "Cyborg" Good outpointed previously undefeated Chris "The Assassin" Lozano. The co-main event saw an early stoppage when former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Jay "The Thoroughbred" Hieron had a rear-naked choke applied to Anthony "The Recipe" Lapsley. The referee was unable to see Lapsley's face and stopped the fight thinking Lapsley was unconscious. Lapsley immediately rose to his feet in protest, clearly still awake, but the fight had already been called. To his credit, Hieron had Lapsley caught and it was likely only a matter of time before a legitimate stoppage would've occurred.
