UFC Fight Night 19 Fight Notes:
(Phillipe Nover suffered a seizure during the day on Wednesday. His fight with Sam Stout was subsequently cancelled.)
Melvin Guillard vs. Nate Diaz
R1- Guillard shows his power early on with a big shot that drops Diaz, but he quickly recovers and starts moving for takedowns. As the round moves on, Diaz starts to establish a jab, as Guillard uses head movement to avoid much damage.
R2- Diaz works to get his range again in the 2nd, coming forward the entire time. Guillard still puts together some good combos, but gets tagged with a jab and tries to play possum and then shoots in for a takedown. Big mistake from Guillard as he is caught in a guillotine choke from the wrong fighter. Diaz forces the tap out.

Gray Maynard vs. Roger Huerta
R1 – Maynard does a good job early on of establishing his stand-up, feeding Huerta a steady diet of punches and then moving away. Eventually, Huerta catches the shot he was looking for as he staggers Maynard with a punch, and stays aggressive while probably stealing the round.
R2 – The 2nd round shows a much stronger performance from Maynard who starts to use his jab more and more to keep Huerta away. Still, Huerta charges forward with combinations and flurries, trying to catch the former Michigan St. wrestler. Close round, Maynard seems more accurate, while Huerta is more aggressive.
R3- Maynard finally gets a takedown in the third round as he starts to frustrate Huerta a little bit. Maynard grabs a kimura and it looks like he’s literally pulled Huerta’s shoulder out of socket. Somehow, Huerta battles out, but soon finds himself on his back once again. Maynard pulls out a very strong third round to close the fight.

Carlos Condit vs. Jake Ellenberger
R1- Ellenberger catches Condit several times in the first round and he comes close to finishing on the ground each occasion that Condit drops. Condit battles back and goes after Ellenberger with knees, but he finds himself back on the ground again fighting off a guillotine choke. Crazy first round.
R2- Condit gets taken down early in the 2nd, as Ellenberger tries to maintain top position. Condit catches a kimura from the bottom and gets the reverse, ending up in the mount. Condit slips off of Ellenberger’s back and ends up pulling guard again, before the fighters stand up to close out the round.
R3- As the third round starts, Ellenberger looks tired, as Condit goes on the attack. Condit controls the action with strong ground and pound, almost sinking in a rear naked choke twice in the round. Condit stays aggressive for all five minutes, but Ellenberger still battles through.

Nate Quarry vs. Tim Credeur
R1 – Credeur and Quarry both decide to test the stand-up early in the fight, with Credeur landing the better combinations. Late in the first, Credeur tags Quarry with a good punch, and follows it up to the ground where he almost snatches a rear naked choke, but Quarry fights out. The end of the round brings another good flurry from Tim Credeur.
R2- The two swing heavy at each other to open the 2nd with Quarry tagging Credeur and putting him down. Quarry works his ground and pound for most of the round. Credeur does a good job defending, but Quarry controls the entire 5 minutes.
R3- Quarry and Credeur set the bar very high with another fantastic round, each fighter tagging the other with big punches. Quarry gets the better of it, hitting Credeur with a few monster shots. The round moves on with each hitting hard and heavy until the final horn sounds.

Brian Stann vs. Steve Cantwell
R1 – Both fighters are rushed to the cage to keep up with the TV schedule and start trading strikes in classic fashion… as expected. Both fighters land hard with Cantwell being just a bit crisper and pressing forward the entire round. 10-9 Cantwell
R2 – A carbon copy of round one. There seems to be no sense of urgency by Stann as Cantwell again outpoints him on the feet.
R3 – Round three is just like the previous one. Cantwell stalks and Stann searches for a hole in Cantwell’s defense. Cantwell controls the entire 15 minutes yet loses a curious decision. Again the crowd is unhappy.

Mike Pyle vs. Chris Wilson
R1 – Slow start as Pyle earns a tough takedown into Wilson’s guard, where the fight remains uneventful with not much in the way of offense from either fighter. First round 10-9 for Pyle.
R2 – Pyle avoids a couple of wild punches and secures a takedown, again into Wilson’s full guard a minute in. Pyle controls the action and does just enough to not be stood back up until one minute left. A failed Anaconda by Pyle ends the round. Pyle again wins the round 10-9.
R3 – Wilson is the aggressor and maybe too aggressive. As he attempts a takedown, he leaves his neck out and Pyle quickly executes a perfect guillotine for his 17th submission win at 2:15 of the third round.

C.B. Dollaway vs. Jay Silva
R1 – Dollaway lands a takedown early and works for a guillotine, but Silva escapes and stands. Dollaway doesn’t want to stand too long obviously and takes Silva down repeatedly, four total takedowns for the round, which Dollaway easily wins.
R2 – Fireworks early as Silva cracks Dollaway’s jaw several times, dropping him. Dollaway mounts then takes the back and works several rear naked choke attempts for the remainder of the round. Dollaway wins the round 10-9 again.
R3 – Dollaway survives an early flurry to gain the takedown. Both fighters look very tired. Dollaway gets full mount, but looks too tired to throw anything and Silva easily reverses him. Silva let’s Dollaway up to try for a miracle KO to the crowd’s approval and is taken down for his trouble. Dollaway finishes in mount to win the fight.
C.B. Dollaway def. Jay Silva by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28), R3
Jeremy Stephens vs. Justin Buchholz
R1 – Unlike the last fight, 75 punches landed in the first minute. Stephens rocks Buchholz and drops him, but Buchholz recovers and stands. Stephens drops Buchholz again, cutting him badly. Officials and doctors stop the contest.

Brock Larson vs. Mike Pierce
R1 – Pierce takes Larson down and blankets him for the majority of the first round. Larson escapes with 45 seconds left. Round should go to Pierce.
R2 – Pierce takes Brock down at 3:00 mark. Brief moments of action are scare. Peirce scores only takedown so another round probably goes his way.
R3 – Virtually no action until 2:30 when Pierce gets another takedown from a minute long clinch. Lay and pray ensues for the remainder of the round. Pierce should take the round and the fight.
Mike Pierce def. Brock Larson by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27), R3
Steve Steinbeiss vs. Ryan Jansen
R1 – There was controversy as official Gary Ritter stopped the bout while Jansen has a guillotine in and Steinbeiss raises his thumb to show he is fine.
