Preliminary Bouts
Saul Almeida def. Tateki Matsuda via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) - The 22-year-old Almeida, a rising prospect from the New England region, controlled Matsudi with ground work for most of the fight. He threatened Matsuda with submissions through the duration of the fight, hunting a kimura at the end of the first round and a rear naked choke at the end of the second. Matsuda survived but was otherwise overwhelmed. Almeida rose to 10-1 with his third straight win.

Ryan Quinn def. Brett Oteri via technical submission (rear naked choke), Rd. 1, 1:49 - Quinn got the takedown early, got Oteri's back and applied the choke. Oteri tried breaking his grip and never tapped before he went unconscious and the referee stopped it.

Andrew Calandrelli def. Matt Nice via submission (keylock), Rd. 1, 3:55 - Calandrelli was given superstar treatment by this crowd, as he's a popular local trainer. He peppered Nice early with jabs and a left hook, then took him down and quickly moved into side control, where he applied the fight-ending move.

Nik Fekete def. Mark Griffin via TKO, Rd. 2 (3:12) - Fekete looked like the stronger fighter from the get-go, bullying Griffin around in the clinch and taking him down late in the first. In the second, Fekete scored another takedown early in the round and placed Griffin in a crucifix, eventually scoring the stoppage after a series of unanswered short elbows from the top.

Jeff Nader def. Dan Cramer via TKO, Rd. 3 (1:04) - A great comeback win for Nader, who was completely dominated on the ground in each of the first two rounds. In either round, it looked like he could have been stopped as Cramer pummeled him with strikes, some of which were deflected. But he fought on and early in the third, Nader caught Cramer early with a right hook behind the ear. Cramer was wobbled and Nader caught him at least three more times. On a flush uppercut, Cramer's legs buckled and referee Kevin Mulhall saw enough and stopped the action. Cramer, who never went down during the flurry, immediately protested, but to no avail.
