Melvin Manhoef def. Ryo “Rambo” Kawamura (current middleweight King of Pancrase) by KO at 4:40 of Round 1.  Ryo’s “How to Beat Melvin Manhoef” book apparently advised him to taunt while keeping his hands low.

Bantamweight Championship: Soo Chul Kim def. Leandro Issa by TKO at 0:15 of Round 2.

Bantamweight GP Quarterfinals: Jens Pulver (26-17-1) def. Zhao Ya Fei (3-2, or 1-0 according to the internets) by “Technical Decision” due to nutshots.  Despite the way this ended, and my love for Jens, watching him struggle in the first round against a 19-year-old rookie is just more evidence that he’s way past his best-before date.
