Willie Solorio (0-6) fights Eddie Ellis (6-6) to a no-contest
Solorio was actually one of the judges and was asked to fight on ten minutes notice! Apparently, Ellis' scheduled opponent didn't show up, so Willie Solorio stepped in. It appeared to be a mismatch in Ellis' favor, but then Ellis landed an illegal knee strike. The fight was ruled a no-contest rather than being a disqualification victory for Solorio.
Randy Spence defeats Don Lunier by submission
Tim McKenzie defeats Shane Davis via submission
Roger Neff defeats Cobra at 1:20 of the first round

Nick Diaz (7-2) defeats Jeremy Jackson (6-3) by TKO (referee's stoppage)
This was a very tactical fight that was dominated by Nick Diaz. The two fighters played a tactical game at the beginning of the fight, with Diaz trying to get a takedown and Jackson trying to land some strikes while avoiding the takedown attempts. They worked in the clinch for a while, with Diaz having the edge. The majority of the fight was in this stand-up phase of the fight. Diaz then took Jackson down and once Jackson was on his back, the fight was effectively over. Jackson tried unsuccessfully to come back with some striking flurries from the bottom, and Diaz maneuvered himself into the full mount smoothly and seamlessly.
Once in the full mount, Diaz started raining down hard shots. He didn't appear to be going for any kind of submission, he was just unleashing punishment. Jackson wasn't unconscious, but he was pretty much just curled up and was not defending himself. The referee appeared to be hesitant to stop the fight, but he had no choice because the punishment kept coming and the situation wasn't going to change. Diaz wins by TKO at 4:17 of the first round. Jackson got up fairly quickly after the referee stopped the fight. He was never unconcious, but he was very battered and bloody after the fight. Diaz was reportedly very gracious in victory and did not trash-talk or brag (which is tempting for many fighters when they avenge a previous defeat like Diaz did tonight).
Diaz vs. Jackson III appears to be more likely at this point than Dennis Hallman vs. Jeremy Jackson. It is was expected going into the fight that Jackson was putting his UFC shot on the line with this fight, just as Dennis Hallman will be doing with his upcoming fight that takes place before UFC 44. Nothing is confirmed, but it has to be considered likely that the UFC will pull Jeremy Jackson from the UFC 44 line-up and have someone else fight Dennis Hallman.
