VAUGHN DONAIRE (CEBU DEFTAC) VS HANS LAMINALO ( BUTUAN MMA)
Vaughn Donaire of Deftac Cebu set the tone of the whole evening with his huge fists pummeling the hapless Hans Lamanilao of Butuan Extreme MMA. Donaire landed a huge right that toppled lamanilao in the first canto of the opening round and never looked back.
Although Donaire had the mount position for a good three minutes raining a barrage of uinanswered blows from the mount , Donaire could not take out the Butuan brawler - Eventually Laminalo escaped and they were briefly on thier feet when Donaire managed to take Laminalo down again. '
This time Donaire, unleashed "double gorilla fist pumps from heaven" and although the double barreled attack wa effective if only half of them landed -- but hey, 50% connection is not bad at all - especially when your opponenets face was already red as a beet and ready to spew from all angles, Donaire defeats Lumanilao by a merciful RSC.
MATCH 3 FLYWEIGHT DIVISION
ROEL ROSAURO (YAW YAN ARDIGMA CEBU ) VS ARNEL YLANAN (BULLET FIGHTING)
Both started the standard "I -will kick-your leg-and- then -you kick- my- leg- ok ?" exchange. Somewhere in that MOA ( memorandum of agreement) Ylanan did not read the fine print "and-then - i-will- hit-you-with-spinning backfist-that-will-give-you-an-OOBE (out-of body experience) and that.s exactly how the deal ( and Ylanan) went down. Rosauro with a highlight reel KO.

UTRYCH ALARIN (BUTUAN MMA) VS JIMMY YABO (SELDEF)
It's round one and I am already liking this lanky fellow from seldef, he has the height advantage and is measuring his opponent with a half jab, making Alarin unsure about his distance and range. A few more, "jabs" and Yabo has the longtitude and latitude on his GPS, Yabo mistakenly moves into the kill zone exposed and Yabo nails him with a straight. Ylanan rises to his feet and referree Christain wong stops the fight , Ylanan complains but Wong gestures that he (Ylanan) is still cross eyed from the punch. Ylanan finally agrees with the "three" referees in front of him. One punch and 23 seconds is all it took.
