UFC 148 Silva Vs. Sonnen II: Preliminary Card Results

The preliminary fights are in the books on Saturday night for UFC 148 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. While the card is much more top-loaded than the average UFC event, some of the early bouts were fairly underwhelming.

All five fights that comprised the preliminary matches televised on Facebook and FX went the distance, all of them resulting in unanimous decisions. The fight between Constantinous Philippou and Riki Fukuda nearly came to an end with under 2:00 remaining in the final round when Fukuda inadvertently poked Philippou in the eye. Philippou took a long time recovering and the doctor appeared nearly ready to stop the fight, but Philippou was insistent on continuing and fought the remainder of the match with visible anger.

Here are the results from the preliminary fights at UFC 148:

Lightweight bout: Melvin Guillard def. Fabrício Camões via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Lightweight bout: Khabib Nurmagomedov def. Gleison Tibau via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Middleweight bout: Constantinos Philippou def. Riki Fukuda via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)
Lightweight bout: Shane Roller def. John Alessio via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
Lightweight bout: Rafaello Oliveira def. Yoislandy Izquierdo via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
