The crowd is electric early as the culmination of the mixed martial arts regulations prove its worth here within Wisconsin. It's got to be a good feeling for Jess Gonzalez, Domingo Leugizamon, and the entire staff. Here we go.

135 - Edwin Figueroa vs. Jason Reinhardt

R1 - Figueroa stalks early and Reinhardt circles away drawing some early boos. Reinhardt taunts and tells Figueroa to come forward but he's the one running.

Reinhardt holds off and earns a takedown and then is able to take Figueroa's back once on the mat. Reinhardt looks for the rear naked until Figueroa turns into the choke and leaps to his feet. He throws some punches from the top and then lets his opponent back to his feet. Figueroa keeps pushing the pace and Reinhardt goes back to the mat once again, this time with Figueroa cahsing. He postures back up and begins landing big rights that may signify the end. The round comes to a close with Reinhardt getting pummeled and drawing more boos for his lack of energy near the end. 

R2 - Reinhardt starts out the second again looking for takedowns but Figuero isn't having it. Edwin lands on top after a failed attempt and begins pummeling Reinhardt until the ref has seen enough. Impressive victory for Figueroa and likely the last time we will see Reinhardt inside of the Octagon.

155 - Danny Castillo vs. Jacob Volkmann

R1 - A scramble early sees the two trade blows. Castillo misses a high kick as both guys feel each other out. "Last Call" lands a leg kick but Volkmann quickly takes the action to the ground and looks to lock in an anaconda. Castillo fights to the top spot and is able to pull his head out. Castillo finds himself in Voklmann's guard but the fight goes back to the feet where Castillo lands a rippling kick to the body. Castillo then goes for a takedown and unsuccessfully works for it for the remainder of the first round. Exciting round that USCS sees for Volkmannn because of the sub attempt, but it was close and could have went to Castillo. 

R2 - Volkmann misses an early punch prompting Castillo to go for the takedown, however he heats an uppercut on the way in. Castillo gets a single leg though, but "Christmas" latches on to the body. After a stalemate a crazy sprawl ensues that eventually finds Volkmann in half guard. Volkmann looks to pass and seems to lock in a Darce choke. Volkmann can't finish though and keeps looking for a way to finish as the round comes to a close. Volkmann's sub attempts likely earned him the nod once again.

R3 - Castillo comes out looking to strike early with an uppercut and then finding home with a leg kick. Volkmann goes for a takedown that Castillo is able to avoid and keep on the feet. Volk goes another takedown and eats a kick to the body on his way in, however he still finds a way to finish and end up on top. Again Volkmann looks for the front choke as Castillo continues to hold out. It doesn't look deep but is likely scoring points from the judges. With just a minute left Volmann keeps up the pressure with the choke. Volkmann takes the back but the fight finishes up. It was an exciting bout that USCS sees for Vokmann due to his control on the ground and continued submission attempts.

Vemola eventually is able to get back to his feet but still has his back glued to the fence. Vemola tries for a release and is able to cinch in a deep guillotine that Markes shrugs off right as the bell sounds. The sub attempt looked to take a lot out of Vemola who laid down for a while afterwards. 

R2 - Vemola comes charging out of the gates again and lands a few big right hands before Markes is able to take him to the ground. Vemola tries to stand but is once again put on his back. The two go back to their feet and Markes continues to keep Vemola away from doing anything offensive as the crowd begins to grow restless.

The round ends with Markes in complete control and Vemola being unable to mount any sort of action.

R3 - Knowing he won't have many chances to strike Vemola comes out swinging but is easily pressed against the cage yet again. This is a stylistic nightmare for Vemola as Markes takes the fight to the mat. The fans go back to booing but Markes is fighting a smart and safe fight that will keep him in the organization. The fight eventually grinds its way to a halt as Markes makes an impressive debut with in the UFC.

R3 – Five minutes for Hardy to likely keep his job. Here goes. The two pick right up where they left off. Lytle lands rights to the head and the body and Hardy answers with a left counter hook. The action remains solid as the final 60 seconds of the UFC’s visit see a flurry back and forth between the two. Hardy for some reason decides to go for a takedown and and he gets put into a choke. A bad decision that could results in his pink slip from Dana White. Great finish to an electrifying career for Lytle and Hardy looks demoralized.
