Coming up we have a bantamweight MMA rules bout between Renan Melo and Diego Falcao. Chooooooooon! I think Melo might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Fireball - Pitbull. Falcao has chosen Charon - Sorrow Song as his entrance music. These two fighters really are very evenly matched on the feet - it will be fascinating to see who can assert themselves in that aspect of the fight.

Pelle Hermano told me before the fight that he's been watching a lot of DVDs so let's see if that helps him in this one! I can't wait to find out!

I think Partio has won this one but let's see what the judges have to say. Over to the ring announcer for the scorecards.

Ladies and gentlemen, after 3 rounds of action, we go to the scorecards for a decision.
Judge Paul Tew scores the fight 29:28
Judge James Atkins scores the fight 29:28
Judge Steven Brown scores the fight 29:28

In favor of your winner, by unanimous decision... Katu Partio!

Katu Partio seemed lost for words in his post fight interview but he remembered to thank his fans and directed everyone to his website.
