Welcome to FightLine’s live coverage of UFC Fight Night 75.

Set from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, tonight’s card features a heavyweight battle between Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson.

Barnett (33-7) is a former UFC heavyweight champion who had his two-fight win streak snapped last December by Travis Browne. He is 10-2 in his last 12 overall and will be fighting in Japan for the first time since a 2010 victory over Siala-Mou Siliga – where he is 12-4 all-time.

Nelson (20-11), who once claimed the title of Ultimate Fighter, is just 1-4 in his last five, losing to Alistair Overeem, Mark Hunt, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. However, each of his last 12 wins have been via knockout.

The card also features middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall in the co-main event, as Hall replaces Roan Carneiro.

Mizuto Hirota vs. Teruto Ishihara in the finals of “Road to UFC: Japan”

We’ll begin the main card with the featherweight finals in the “Road to UFC: Japan” tournament, as Mizuto Hirota takes on Teruto Ishihara.

Round 1: Some pretty awesome blue hair being sported by Hirota, which matches his trunks. Right as they slap hands, Ishihara throws a huge kick right to the body that lands. Hirota smiles and comes back with a nice combo. It might have been a slip, but Ishihara brings Hirota down. However, he can’t keep him there and they are quickly back to the feet. Hirota catches him against the fence and lands a stiff right, but it’s Ishihara with the more productivity. Another knockdown for Ishihara to end the round.

Round 2: Ishihara puts out his hand for another touch of gloves and this time, Hirota declines. He lands again and knocks down Hirota, as the fans voice their approval. Ishihara continues to duck and move, countering when the opening becomes available. Hirota connects, but it does nothing to concern Ishihara. Just like that, he lands a left that takes Ishihara down for a brief moment. Takedown for Hirota with 90 seconds left and he is working to take the back. Much like Ishihara did at the end of the first, Hirota finishes the second strong.

Round 3: Ishihara scores with a knockdown and tries to pounce, but Hirota works to his feet right away. Four straight shots land by Hirota, as he is finding his range at a much better pace than Ishihara. Another strong finish for Hirota, and it just might allow the veteran fighter to claim the decision.
