Liveblog: Evolution AMMA Part 2

Melvis Figueroa takes the cage to face Kenneth Rivera. Rivera is a Rhino Fight Team badass who fights hard and often, so like Ozzy, he's also one to watch. Round 1 is fast-paced, with Rivera landing a few on the feet and Figueroa gaining mount and holding onto it like it was a Golden Ticket into Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Round 2 sees Rivera slamming his opponent over and over again, while in the final round Figueroa starts throwing out sub attempts that Rivera really has to work to get out of. Rivera takes the split decision when time runs out. Leo Hernandez is up and he's taking on Greg Urso. Hernandez fights out of the Freestyle Fighting Academy in Miami - that's one badass commute, and he makes the most of it by using Urso's face as a punching bag in the first round. Urso inexplicably keeps turning his back and casually walking away, and by the second round he just does not seem to want to be in there. Mercifully, Hernandez gets him down, takes his back and sinks the choke at 1:31 of Round 2. Jordan Figueroa is up and he's facing Billy Dee Williams. Most remember Williams for his role as Lando Calrissian, but he also did great work as the spokesman for Colt 45 malt liquor. We'll see if he's still got the magic. And he does for the first round, throwing leather with authority and going all original owner of the Millenium Falcom/Mayor of Bespin the Cloud city on his foe. Figueroa pays him back in kind in Round 2 by getting on top and staying there, but Williams does the same in the final round and takes the decision.
