After the preliminary rounds were completed, Team USA was ready with there 8 final contestants (Michael Patt, Keith Wisniewski, Nick Agallar, Nick Thompson, Tara Larosa, Chael Sonnen, Mario Rinaldi, and Trevor Prangley). Along with the USA versus Russia match ups the card also had one of the three Super fights featuring Roger Gracie in his professional MMA fight debut fighting against WWE, Pride, and UFC veteran Ron H2O Waterman, Antonio Silva versus Eric Pele, and hard throwing Eddie Alvarez against UFC and Pride FC veteran Aaron Riley in a welterweight MFC championship bout.
I don't know if the event lived up to the hype but USA versus Russia did not produce great MMA events. The best match of the night was the ladies match up between Tara Larosa from the US team versus Julia Berezekova from the Red Devil team. Larosa's 11 and 1 record is no joke as she has all the skill and stand up to be a great fighter. The match with Berezekova was incredible with great jujitsu and stand up striking. At the end of the day, Larosa was the more skilled and made Berezekova submit with an armbar.
