A good debut for him. Into the 2nd, and Gibson blocks a high kick attempt as both men push the action. Not much action follows from inside the guard, so Carter stands, and they trade into the clinch, where Carter gets another throw, but this time he chooses to let Gumm stand. They muscle for position, with Menne working a front headlock to land a knee, and then break off and trade momentarily.
Gumm gets guard though, so Carter stands back up. Cook shoves him into the fence, but Tiki breaks the clinch with a knee and then comes forward throwing kicks, before stunning Cook badly with some quick punches. Both are making their debuts, but Carter was already an experienced guy even here, sporting a record of , with God knows how many other fights in kickboxing, karate and San Shou. Freeman rolls with the pressure, so Adams goes for a kneebar instead, but Freeman manages to avoid that, too. He passes into half-guard, and then works his way into a side mount, landing some more punches. Third and final round then, and Andre opens up with a side kick to the body, looking to strike, but Gibson manages to close the gap and muscles him into the fence again. He also talks about recovering from injuries, before pimping Jens Pulver and explaining how much he enjoys coaching his students. Into the 2nd, and Gibson blocks a high kick attempt as both men push the action. He tries to mount, but Gumm blocks, so Shonie stands back up again, and they exchange some punches. Judson staggers backwards, and Williams closes in, catching him on the jaw with a left jab for the knockout. A good debut for him. Menne lands a few blows, and then stands again, before rocking him with punches and a big knee. Menne looks to reclaim guard, but gives his back, so Iha floats into an armbar attempt, only for Menne to slip out and escape to his feet. Menne presses, landing a combination of a left-right followed by a body kick, and they go into the clinch where Iha pulls guard again. They muscle for position, with Menne working a front headlock to land a knee, and then break off and trade momentarily. Andre is literally OUT. Menne lands some clubbing shots from the top, then chooses to stand, and when Iha joins him Menne lands a combo, mixing knees and punches up beautifully. He comes up quickly though, and Iha shoots again, but Menne blocks and they end up in a clinch where, you guessed it, Iha pulls guard. Into the clinch again, and Carter throws him once more, into side mount. Velasquez holds on for dear life, so Pulver lands some elbows to the shoulders, and then slugs away with more clean shots for the stoppage. They get underway and Judson comes out swinging, tagging his opponent as Williams tries to close the distance for a takedown. Gumm locks up a triangle choke almost as soon as they hit the mat though, and pulls the arm across, as Carter looks in trouble. Cook gets both hooks in, and follows with a textbook rear naked choke for the tapout. They begin the opening round, and Andre lands some jabs into a clinch, where Gibson lands some knees to the midsection and muscles him to the fence. They seemed pretty well-matched during the opening round, but Tiki was clearly gassed towards the end of it, and I think that made the difference as it allowed Cook to get the takedown in the 2nd and close things out. This was a great way for Pulver to begin his televised UFC career, for sure. Gibson looks for the full mount, but Andre blocks and gets half-guard back.
