UFC Fight Night London LIVE: Silva vs Bisping

    Fight back standing, Pickett still coming off worse in the exchanges
    2/27/2016 9:23:17 PM
    Pickett catches Rivera with a low shot and the fight is halted to allow the American to recover
    2/27/2016 9:24:45 PM
    Great flurry in the final ten seconds, with both fighters ending on impressive high kicks, neither landed, though
    2/27/2016 9:25:47 PM
    Pickett has Rivera in side control in round three, been the first show of real dominance from the Englishman
    2/27/2016 9:28:52 PM
    referee stands them up, to my endless frustration
    2/27/2016 9:30:01 PM
    Pickett with a nice throw on Rivera to once again take the fight to the ground
    2/27/2016 9:31:01 PM
    Pickett ends the fight on top, let's see how the judges score it. Rivera looked to take the first two rounds...
    2/27/2016 9:31:56 PM
    It's a split decision
    2/27/2016 9:33:37 PM
    And it's gone to Brad Pickett!
    2/27/2016 9:33:45 PM
    Rivera is in tears as he leaves the cage, probably justified in feeling aggrieved at the loss
    2/27/2016 9:34:54 PM
    Pickett also in tears in the cage during the post-fight interview
    2/27/2016 9:35:03 PM
    Up next is another hometown fighter: Tom Breese vs Keita Nakamura, a lot of people have been full of praise for Breese, so he comes into this bout with high expectations
    2/27/2016 9:44:10 PM
    Breese does look very menacing in the cage
    2/27/2016 9:46:08 PM
    Breese gets taken down early, not the best of starts
    2/27/2016 9:47:36 PM
    But he quickly turns the tables and nearly gets an ankle, but gets the fight back to a standing clinch
    2/27/2016 9:48:03 PM
    Breese landing some solid punches and kicks, all landing on Nakamura's mush
    2/27/2016 9:50:10 PM
    Nakamura starts to fire back with some punches of his own and is now looking to secure a takedown
    2/27/2016 9:50:41 PM
    Round one in the books, Breese takes it for me
    2/27/2016 9:51:24 PM
    Round two underway, and the two tie up against the cage early
    2/27/2016 9:52:43 PM
    Nakamura gets the takedown and moves into half guard
    2/27/2016 9:53:05 PM
    Breese on top, not a lot happening right now, Breese seems to be having trouble unloading on Nakamura who's doing a good job tying up
    2/27/2016 9:54:56 PM
    Solid elbows from the top now from breese
    2/27/2016 9:56:08 PM
    Nakamura now looking to sink an Omoplata, doesn't get it though
    2/27/2016 9:57:08 PM
    Round three underway and Breese getting some good jabs in, Nakamura probably has to win this round comfortably in order to have any luck on the scorecards
    2/27/2016 9:59:44 PM
    Nakamura takes Breese down but is rolled and gives up a leg
    2/27/2016 10:00:49 PM
    Referee encouraging both fighters to work, neither really responding and the crowd isn't liking what they're seeing
    2/27/2016 10:02:09 PM
    Breese gets a unanimous decision victory, but is apologetic in the post-fight interview for the unimpressive win
    2/27/2016 10:09:42 PM
    You could say the fight wasn't exactly "a Breese"? Sorry
    2/27/2016 10:09:59 PM
    Thales Leites vs Gegard Mousasi next
    2/27/2016 10:10:34 PM
    Mousasi is absolutely the Dimitar Berbatov of MMA, incredibly relaxed for a man about to get punched in the face a bit
    2/27/2016 10:15:24 PM
    Fight starts against the cage in the clinch, Mousasi's back against the fence, the two separate and start trading
    2/27/2016 10:16:58 PM
    Leites moving around a lot but Mousasi standing straight in front of him, throwing punches
    2/27/2016 10:17:48 PM
    Solid jab from Mousasi, following it up with the right hand too, one of the few fighters tonight to throw some combinations
    2/27/2016 10:18:37 PM
    Leites pulls guard but Mousasi gets up
    2/27/2016 10:19:32 PM
    Quiet first round comes to a close, not sure who you'd give that to, neither of them?
    2/27/2016 10:20:37 PM
    Round two starts much livelier
    2/27/2016 10:21:54 PM
    Mousasi has landed some decent shots in the opening of this round, but Leites has absorbed them well
    2/27/2016 10:23:04 PM
    Mousasi hasn't landed much this round, and Leites has landed even less
    2/27/2016 10:25:33 PM
    Leites' face a bit of a mess as he goes to his corner at the close of the second, despite the perceived lack of action
    2/27/2016 10:27:01 PM
    Leites has huge swelling under his left eye
    2/27/2016 10:27:39 PM
    final round and then we move on to the main event, at least there's that going for this fight!
    2/27/2016 10:27:54 PM
    Leites pulls guard immediately, much to the crowd's anguish
    2/27/2016 10:29:07 PM
    Fight is back standing now though, and Mousasi looks to make that left eye swell even more, if that's possible
    2/27/2016 10:29:24 PM
    Finally some fences are being swung for
    2/27/2016 10:30:22 PM
    It's time for the MAAAAAAAIIIIIIINN EVENT of the evening, Bisping vs Silva, HERE WE GO!
