Last week we saw another drunken episode from Julian Lane, Michael Ricci beat Team Nelson's number one pick Dom Waters, and Dana asked the fighters who they wanted to fight in the quarterfinals, with Ricci picking his fellow Canadian Michael Hill. This week's previews shows some fallout between the two, so this episode should be good. Plus we'll see teammates Neil Magny and Bristol Marunde fight, as well as Colton Smith taking on Igor Araujo.

FADE IN: We open at the house, and Ricci and Hill pass each other in the hall and won't look at one another. Ricci says he picked Hill because he beat Nelson's number one pick and now he wants to beat their number two pick. He says he hopes Hill isn't pissed, but the other fighters are all just numbers for him. He knew he had to fight four people to win, and Hill is just another number. Hill says he didn't want to fight Ricci, but he'd fight whoever was put in front of him. He says he was blown away when Nelson told him Ricci picked him. Hill is disappointed because Ricci is fake and he says Ricci better keep his hands up because he's coming for him.

Team Nelson training session, and he's training both Bristol and Neil and he wants to make each guy better at what he's at. Each fighter is picking their cornermen, and they're trying to focus on Bristol working inside and Neil working his length. Bristol says he's sparred with Neil, which he feels is an advantage, and he knows he's giving up 6-8" of reach. Neil says he knows Bristol is going to try to neutralize his reach, but he's going to keep him at a distance. Bristol says he's going to take the fight to the ground and ground and pound him. Neil says it's nothing personal, and he's just going through with his normal routine. Bristol says it's weird because he's never fought someone that he's trained this closely with before, while Neil says they know each other pretty well and they're both hoping to get the fight over with. It's fight time already? Well, that was fast. Bristol is five years older, one inch shorter, and is giving up 6" of reach to Magny.

Welterweight bout: Bristol Marunde (Team Carwin) vs Neil Magny (Team Carwin)

Round 1: Bristol comes out swinging, but Magny peppers him with a quick combination. Neil is noticeably quicker, but Bristol doesn't seem fazed, as he's coming forward and landing pretty effectively. Neil half-catches a leg kick and that allows him to land a combination as Bristol stumbles back. Neil's jab finds a home, but Bristol feints a shot and dives forward with a punch that barely misses. Bristol does go for the takedown, and Neil defends, but Bristol follows through in the center of the cage and finishes the takedown. He moves into half-guard and looks to improve his position, but Neil stands up and presses him against the cage, only to back off and take the center of the cage. Bristol comes forward but Neil is moving away effectively and using his jab to keep Bristol on the outside. Bristol catches a kick but can't follow up and Neil dances away. They exchange glancing punches and Neil falls down but Bristol can't capitalize. Neither guy landing (or really throwing) with a minute left and Neil continues to dance away from Bristol's combinations. Bristol catches a kick and answers with a glancing head kick. He presses Neil against the cage and throws a couple of knees before looking for the double leg. He can't get it so he settles for some punches until Neil reverses it. Neil ends up on the mat as the round ends, but his upkicks keep Bristol at bay until the horn.

Scorecard: Marunde, 10-9 (Very close round, but Bristol had the takedown and landed some decent shots against the cage in the beginning and end of the round that I think won it for him, although I could easily see it going either way)

Round 2: Bristol comes out swinging but gets tagged by a jab. He clinches up and they trade punches, but Neil gets away. Neil lands a leg kick, but Bristol lands a combination. They trade in close again and Neil dances away. Neil lands a couple of nice punches but Bristol backs him against the cage. Neil gets away again, but Bristol comes forward with a pair of punches and a body kick. Bristol keeps coming forward and they keep trading, but Neil keeps slipping punches past Bristol's guard. Bristol catches another kick and sweeps Neil's ankle. Bristol dives into guard and lands some ground and pound. He postures up and lands some more, but quickly drops back into guard. Bristol is fighting heavy, keeping Neil pressed down against the cage, but he stands up over Neil. Neil gets warned for hands on the fence, but he keeps kicking at Bristol's shin to keep him at bay. Bristol drops back down but they end up on their feet and Neil looks for the takedown. Bristol is handing onto his arm and looking for a kimura, but Neil gets free and is working from half guard. Nice job of wrist control by Bristol, but Neil rolls him to his side and starts pounding on his ribs. Eventually he transitions into wholesale ground and pound and Bristol gives up his back, but Bristol gets up before Neil can really do anything. They continue grappling, but Neil remains in control as the round ends.

Scorecard: Magny, 10-9

Official Result - Winner: Neil Magny, Unanimous Decision (20-18x3)

Bristol says he did what Dana told him to do - go out and look for a finish, and he's not disappointed, because he might be out of the tournament but he's not out of the game. Neil is happy that his gameplan worked and he's happy with the win. Shane thinks Igor is underrated and he could win the whole fight. Both Igor and Colton make weight, and Carwin thinks if Igor can be fluid in the fight like he is in practice, he'll wreck Colton. Nelson says Igor is long and lanky and has his BJJ, but he thinks Colton is better. Colton touches foreheads with Igor during their face off and Igor tells him not to touch him, so Colton taunts him until Igor shoves him. Colton keeps talking, so Igor shoves him again, and luckily for Igor, Carwin steps in the middle, because Igor throws a leg kick that would've sent him out of the competition had it landed.

Neil and Sam have to restrain Igor, because motherf***** in Brazil has a different meaning than in the US. Carwin is disappointed in Nelson because rather than trying to break up the fight, Nelson is egging it on. Igor says he likes to be cool with his opponent before the fight, but Colton makes him angry. Igor says he'll take Colton to the show after the fight, and Colton says Igor should be lucky he's in the cage with him and not in the real world because he's safe in the cage. Igor says he has to give his best for his family, and Colton thinks Igor would rather be home with his family. Igor says he doesn't care about Colton because he's not part of his life and never will be, while Colton says he does it for all soldiers and how the soldiers overseas have it rougher than him. Colton says he hopes Igor sorts his personal issues because he wants to fight the best Igor, and he's going to be the best Colton they've ever seen. Tale of the Tape, and Igor has a five-inch reach and significant experience advantage.

Welterweight bout: Igor Araujo (Team Carwin) vs Colton Smith (Team Nelson)

Round 1: Igor rushes out and backs Colton off, but Colton connects with a Superman punch. Igor tries for takedown, Colton defends, throws a knee, and looks for a takedown of his own. He gets it and lands some punches to Igor's head. Igor works for butterfly guard, but Colton stands over him. Colton kneels to avoid upkicks, and Igor lands a upward hammerfist to the side of Colton's head. Colton goes to the body and looks for a choke, but Igor defends. Igor tries to sweep, but Colton stays on top and he starts working elbows to the side of Igor's head. Colton tries to pass to mount, but Igor defends, so Colton works punches to the face. Colton spins and takes Igor's back but he ends up in full guard after a scramble. Colton passes to north-south and then into a side cradle as Igor tries to stand up. Colton goes back to guard and pounds the body and he looks for the guillotine briefly, only to switch to an underhook. Igor stands up, but Colton holds him against the cage. Colton with a knee to the body and he transitions to a rear waistlock. Colton drags Igor down and they scramble, with Colton ending up in half guard and landing a few punches. They trade punches as the round ends.

Scorecard: Smith, 10-9

Colton gets the takedown and works from half-guard. They scramble but neither man improves their position, although Colton does land some elbows. Igor gets him into full guard and almost pushes him off, but Colton rides it out and ends up in back side control before Igor rolls back into butterfly guard. Colton postures up and pounds away and ends up in side control. Colton takes Igor's back but Igor rolls before he can get hooks in and Colton quickly drops back into half guard. Igor gets free and tries to stand up, but Colton puts him on his back again. Colton gets mount and then moves into side control. He throws some shoulder shrugs and again gets back side control when Igor turns. Igor turns into Colton again and Colton looks for mount, but Igor defends and Colton throws a knee to the ribs. They scramble and Igor lands a nice punch but it's too little, too late. Colton rides out the round in dominant position and throws in more knees and punches to put the exclamation point on his win.

Scorecard: Smith, 10-9

Official Result - Winner: Colton Smith, Unanimous Decision (20-18x3)

Dana says Igor got dominated for the entire two rounds and Dana says it was an easy fight for Colton. Igor congratulates Colton after the fight and they hug it out.
