LAS VEGAS -- This is the UFC 100 live blog for undercard fights featuring Matt Grice vs. Shannon Gugerty, Tom Lawlor vs. CB Dollaway, T.J. Grant vs. Dong-Hyun Kim and Jim Miller vs. Mac Danzig. The live blog is below.
Matt Grice vs. Shannon Gugerty
Round one: Gugerty scored a trip takedown 40 seconds in. Gurgerty worked to improve position but was denied. Grice tried to get to his feet, and Gugerty tried a guillotine. Grice fought out and they got to their feet. Gugerty was relentless, though and locked on the guillotine with full mount. Grice never tapped, and finally went unconscious.
Winner: Gugerty via guillotine.
Tom Lawlor vs. CB Dollaway
Lawlor comes out to "Who Let the Dogs Out?" holding Seth Petruzelli (aka The Guy who KO'd Kimbo) on a leash.
Round one: Dollaway scores with his first punch, a straight right. After a quick exchange, Dollaway goes for the takedown and Lawlor sees his neck, slapping on a guillotine. Carbon copy of the first fight ending, Dollaway won't tap, and goes to sleep. The whole thing took just 55 seconds.
Winner: Lawlor via guillotine.
Dong Hyun-Kim vs. T.J. Grant
Round one: Grant shoots for the takedown in the opening 30 seconds as Kim fights to stay upright. After a scramble, Kim takes Grant down. Grant does a good job holding Kim in his guard, threatening for an arm bar for a moment. Finally, Kim lands a pair of short elbows from the top. Grant scrambles out but Kim lands a big knee on the break. Kim follows with another takedown with 90 seconds left in the round. He can't improve his position before Grant works his way upright. It's a very technical fight as we make it out of the first round for the first time tonight. Round is likely scored for Kim. Good crowd as there is no booing during the ground action.
Round two: Kim with a big left hand early. The scramble to the ground where Kim tries a guillotine, but Grant escapes. Grant again defends well from the bottom until Kim manages a hard, short elbow. The Canadian shows an active guard, stifling Kim for long stretches and limiting action. Every so often, Kim is able to manage an elbow. With less than a minute left, Grant used an illegal upkick while Kim still had a knee down. Ref Mario Yamasaki calls timeout, but Kim recovers quickly and they finish the round.
Round three: Kim gets the better of a short burst of standup before Grant initiates the clinch and looks for a takedown. The jockey for position against the cage for eternity until Yamasaki breaks them up. Kim lands a judo takedown moments later. Kim briefly gets to side control before pulling out. The two go back to standing, but not for long as Kim hits another trip takedown. Grant, now fighting Kim and the clock, starts looking for a kimura. Kim rides out the clock and will likely earn a decision win.
Winner: Kim via unanimous decision
Jim Miller vs. Mac Danzig
Round one: Miller with a big scoop takedown 50 seconds in after some good back-and-forth striking. He improves to half-guard. Miller cut Danzig over the right eye with an elbow and the cut is bleeding badly. Danzig works back to his feet. As Miller tried for a takedown, Danzig went for a guillotine, but only held it briefly.
Round two: Miller starts taking over, landing a left hook, then taking Danzig down in short order. Miller pounds him from the top, and enough blood is getting into Danzig's eye that he purposely closed it for a few seconds. Miller maintains topside position although Danzig is game with elbows from the bottom. Parts of the octagon are starting to look like a crime scene. Miller shot in for a takedown and Danzig nearly got a guillotine as time expired.
Round three: First real roar of the night goes up as the fighters begin round three. Another nice exchange as Miller lands a left and Danzig answers back. Miller gets another takedown, but this time Danzig returns to his feet quickly. Danzig's shorts look like they should be confiscated by the LVPD's Homicide unit. What was white is now red. Yet another takedown for Miller. Miller works to take Danzig's back. Miller tries a rear naked choke, then tries to transition to full mount, but Danzig escapes, ends up on top, and tries to make a last-ditch impression on the judges. Spirited fight which Miller should win by decision.
Winner: Miller by unanimous decision
