UFC On Versus 3 Results: Diego Sanchez Decisions Martin Kampmann

At the conclusion of the main event for UFC on Versus 3, the judges score this bout 29-28 for Diego Sanchez over Martin Kampmann in a unanimous decision.

Martin Kampmann argued in his post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan that he believed he landed the cleaner shots and that Sanchez was mostly missing. Sanchez contended his takedown late in the third plus aggression was enough for him.

This makes two losses in a row for Martin Kampmann and now a two-fight win streak for Diego Sanchez.

I scored the bout for Martin Kampamm. He clearly won the first round and very much lost the second, but the brawling style that won him the second didn't land in the third. Kampmann was much more tactical about keeping his back off of the cage. it should also be noted out of nearly a dozen attempts Kampmann defended all but one takedown attempt and Kampmann was able to stand right away.

It's an unfortunate decision for an otherwise entertaining main event.

UFC On Versus 3 Results: Shane Roller Knocks Out Thiago Tavares

The fifth fight of the night at UFC on Versus 3 is a lighweight match between Shane Roller and Thiago Tavares. Tavares entered this bout after a nice win over Pat Audinwood at UFC 119. Roller, fresh off of his win over Jamie Varner, was making his UFC debut tonight. A big win here put either fighter far ahead on the steep UFC lightweight ladder.

Much to everyone's surprise, Tavares came out striking in the first round, landing on Roller. Even more impressively, he was able to work strong defensively wrestling to keep the fight out of where Roller is best - the floor. Then, unexpectedly, Roller, the former Oklahoma State wrestler, knocked down Thiago Tavares with straight punches right down the middle. He followed it up with a few more shots before the referee was forced to stop the bout. Certainly a result not many had predicted and a very big win for the former All-American.

UFC on Versus 3 Results: Takeya Mizugaki Split Decisions Reuben Duran

The fourth fight on of the evening for UFC on Versus 3 featured a bantamweight bout between Takeya Mizugaki and Reuben Duran. Mizugaki was looking to rebound after a submission loss to Urijah Faber. Duran was looking to make a strong first impression in his UFC debut.

The fight opened up close with neither fighter getting a major advantage over the other.  Mizugaki must've taken a shot or two to the right eye because halfway through the second it was nearly completely closed. Yet, he still managed to strike with Duran, even landing big rights with only half of his proper vision. Despite being at a vision disadvantage, Mizugaki had a good round in the second frame with a couple of takedowns and without taking much damage on the feet. The fight was essentially even heading into the third. Still, the Japanese fighter found a way to come out on top, using superior size, wrestling, takedown ability and just enough stand-up to get past the UFC newcomer. The two traded leg and body kicks in the third frame. Mizugaki even attempted to take Duran's back in the third, but to no avail. He wasn't able to do much with it, but the control of Mizugaki won the day.

UFC on Versus 3 results: Takeya Mizugaki defeats Reuben Duran via split decision (30-27, 27-30, 29-28).

UFC on Versus 3 Results: Dongi Yang Batters Rob Kimmons En Route To Stoppage

The third fight at UFC on Versus 3 featured another middleweight bout, this time between Korean prospect Dongi Yang and "The Rosedale Reaper" Rob Kimmons. Kimmons was coming into this bout off of a loss to Kyle Noke at UFC 122. Yang was coming in after dropping a close spit decision to Chris Camozzi at UFC 121. Both likely needed a victory to remain in the organization.

It didn't take long for the action to get started. "The Ox" Yang floored Kimmons, knocking him to the ground and Yang pounced him. Kimmons, however, was able to capture full guard. Yang then advanced position on Kimmons, moving to mount. Yang pounds on Kimmons until something opened up and the Korean attempted a head and arm triangle. Kimmons escaped the submission and tried to stand back up but was immediately taken to the ground again. Before the round closed Yang came close to locking up a triangle, but the Reaper hung tough.

But the first round would serve as nothing but a prelude to the second. Eventually Yang took over the fight, took Kimmons down again and unloaded vicious ground and pound until the referee was forced to stop the fight. Big win for the Korean prospect.

UFC On Versus 3 Results: Rousimar Palhares Kneebars Dave Branch

The second fight at UFC on Versus 3 featured a middleweight match between jiu-jitsu black belts Dave Branch and Rousimar Palhares. After dropping his UFC debut to Gerald Harris, Branch rebounded against Tomasz Drwal and Rich Antonitto. Palhares, by contrast, had done well for himself against top contenders until his controversial first-round TKO loss to Nate Marquardt.

The first round was a close affair, but the superior grappler won out. Just before the bell to signal the end of the first round, Palhares was deep into a knee bar. He wasn't able to finish it, but Branch looked very close to tapping at points. Branch was a gamer, however, and raised his hand to get the crowd to cheer for him as Palhares attempted the submission. The round ended, but a clear 10-9 for Palhares.

The second round was where Palhares merely finished what he started. He was able to finish Branch off in the same way he intended in the first: with a kneebar.

Leg locks are a very different skill set that can very heavily across BJJ players. Although a black belt, it is clear Palhares is the superior leg lock expert of the two.

UFC on Versus 3 results: Rousimar Palhares defeats Dave Branch via submission (kneebar) at 1:44 of round 2.

UFC On Versus 3 Results: Igor Pokrajac Crushes Todd Brown

At the very first fight at UFC on Versus 3, "Bulldog" Todd Brown was looking for some UFC redemption after dropping a unanimous decision win to "The Barbarian" Tim Boetsch at UFC 117. Igor Pokrajac, however, was looking simply to remain on the UFC roster after accumulating three losses, the most recent to "The Ultimate Fighter" veteran Stephan Bonnar at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale.

In the initial frame, Pokrajac started early landing some nice right hands, backing Brown up and scoring points. The fighters eventually began to jockeying along the fence for position and a chorus of boos from the Louisville crowd came pouring in. The two fighters separated and it was essentially Pokrajac's round. He landed a big knee at the end of the first frame and cut Brown badly. In fact, that was the fight. Brown was unable to continue.

Also of note: Pokrajac called out Tito Ortiz post-fight.

UFC on Versus 3 results: Igor Pokrajac defeats Todd Brown via TKO (strikes) at 5:00 of round 1.
