TACHI PALACE FIGHTS 10 RESULTS: Ian McCall and Eddie Yagin Win Gold - 8/5/11

TACHI PALACE FIGHTS X: LET THE CHIPS FALL was held Friday, August 5, 2011, at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California. The event streamed live on, however, as is usually the case with TPF streams, the video quality was poor and the stream was intermittent at best, plagued throughout by technical difficulties that kept knocking the stream offline.

In the main event, former WEC bantamweight Ian "Uncle Creepy" McCall won the TPF Flyweight Championship with a third-round submission victory over Darrell "The Mongoose" Montague. From all accounts, this was the Fight of the Night. Having previously defeated Jussier Da Silva, who won a dominant decision over Mamoru Yamaguchi earlier on this card, McCall has now established himself as the top 125-pound fighter on the planet.

UCS CAGED COMBAT 4 RESULTS: Fast Eddy Outhustles the Bird Dog in Oregon 7/29/11

UNITED COMBAT SPORTS presented CAGED COMBAT IV on Friday, July 29, 2011, at the Spirit Mountain Casino Events Center in Grand Ronde, OR.

In the main event, "Fast" Eddy Ellis forced a verbal submission out of James "Bird Dog" Birdsley in the second round after a barrage of kicks. After taking a couple of hard kicks to the body, Birdsley checked a leg kick, and then turned to the referee and opted out of the fight. Ellis returned to MMA in April 2011 after a near 2-year layoff and scored a first-round submission victory over a solid opponent in Tim "Cheapshot" Welch. With nearly 50 fights under his belt, Birdsley is no pushover, so for Ellis to win in this fashion is very impressive.

In the co-main event, Eric Dahlberg scored a highlight reel headkick knockout win over Jory Erickson, who himself was coming off a huge TKO win over former UFC fighter "Bad" Brad Blackburn.

VFC 35 RESULTS: Abe Wagner and Joe Ellenberger Win in Iowa - 7/30/11

VICTORY FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP 35: WAGNER VS GRIZZARD was held Saturday, July 30, 2011, at the Mid-Atlantic Center in Council Bluffs, IA.

In the main event, The Ultimate Fighter 10 alum Abraham "Hurricane" Wagner submitted heavyweight journeyman Justin Grizzard in the first round. After taking out former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia in 32 seconds in January for one of 2011's biggest upsets, Wagner was choked out by current UFC fighter Aaron Rosa two months later. Now, 4 months later, Wagner has rebounded with a submission win of his own. Grizzard was coming off back-to-back wins, which tied a career best for him, before Wagner put him back in his place.

In the co-main event, Joe "Excalibur" Ellenberger, twin brother of UFC welterweight Jake Ellenberger, won his second fight of 2011. Joe returned to MMA in 2011 after taking a near 2-year hiatus due to a rare blood disease. Joe scored a unanimous decision win over a super solid opponent in James "The Unbreakable Heavy Hitter" Warfield. Joe Ellenberger had been invited to the UFC before, but had to decline due to his medical condition. Now that's he back into the swing of things, Joe will hopefully soon be on the UFC roster along with his brother.

JUNGLE FIGHT 30 RESULTS: Massaranduba Wins Lightweight Gold, John Lineker Earns Bantamweight Title Fight - 7/30/11

JUNGLE FIGHT 30 was held Saturday, July 30, 2011, at the Para State University Gymnasium in Belem, Para, Brazil.

In the main event, Francisco "Massaranduba" Drinaldo won the vacant Jungle Fight Lightweight Championship with a majority decision victory over one-time DREAM fighter Adriano Martins. Massaranduba's only career loss was in a 155-pound title fight in the finals of last year's Jungle Fight Lightweight Grand Prix. Massaranduba lost to current UFC fighter Yuri "Marajo" Alcantara, who soon vacated the title after signing with the WEC. Massaranduba made the most of his second chance and ended Martins' 6-fight winning streak to capture the elusive gold.

STRIKEFORCE: FEDOR VS HENDERSON RESULTS: Hendo Stops Fedor, Miesha Tate Wins Women's Title in Chicago - 7/30/11

STRIKEFORCE: FEDOR VS HENDERSON was held Saturday, July 30, 2011, at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

In the main event, Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan "Hendo" Henderson put on an extra 2 pounds to move up to heavyweight at 207-pounds to take on the MMA legend Fedor "The Last Emperor" Emelianenko. In MMA, the heavyweight division ranges from 206 to 265 pounds. Fedor weighed in at 223 pounds, however, the fighters appeared very close in size.

In what was a rollicking one-round fight, both fighters traded heavy leather, but it was Fedor Emelianenko who was left face-planted on the mat with referee Herb Dean intervening to declare Dan Henderson the winner before the first round was over.
