BANGOR, Maine - While Ovince Saint Preux was heavily hyped as "the next big thing" in the UFCs light heavyweight division, Ryan Bader proved hes still one of the best fighters in the world at 205 pounds, scoring a unanimous-decision win in the pairs headlining matchup. The two met in the main event of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. Sanit Preux" fight card from Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. It was Bader (19-4) who was strongest to start, turning to his wrestling roots to stop the creative striking attacks of Saint Preux (16-6). It was an effective strategy, and Saint Preuxs frustration was evident as he was forced to constantly work back to his feet and do whatever he could to stay there. Saint Preux would have a few moments of success along the way, particularly in the second round, when he forced Bader to engage him in the boxing department. But he couldnt ever put together any real sustained offence. At the conclusion of 25 minutes, Bader held nine takedowns to Saint Preuxs two, not to mention an edge of 77 strikes to his opponents 30, and he was awarded the win with scores of 48-47, 49-46 and 49-46. "Tough fight," Bader admitted after the win. "OSP is really tough. I had to rely on my takedowns at the end. I didnt feel my hands tonight, a little slow, but I got it done." Seeking his first win in two years, Gray Maynard (12-5-1) looked refreshed and sharp in the opening round of his co-feature matchup with fellow lightweight Ross Pearson (18-7). However, once "The Real Deal" found his range, it was lights out for Maynard. Maynard moved well to start, matching the younger Pearson in mobility and looking to trade shots on the feet. Maynard mixed in a few takedowns, as well, but the wrestling specialist simply couldnt keep his opponent on the floor, and it would come back to cost him. In a second-round exchange, Pearson scored with a quick counter punch that wobbled his opponent, and he immediately sensed the opportunity to finish. Pearson continued to press with strikes, and a barrage of punches sent Maynard crashing to the floor and ended the fight at the 1:35 mark of the second round. "I told Gray after the fight what a huge fan of his I am," Pearson said. "I want all the things hes had in his career. The marquee fights and title shots are what Im after. "Im ready for whatever the UFC wants next, but Ive got a feeling there will be guys who want to fight me now." Maines own Tim Boetsch (18-7) struggled mightily against fellow Brad Tavares (12-4) for the better part of two rounds before scoring one of the most incredible comeback victories in recent memory. It was Tavares who was quicker and more accurate on his feet from the start, and he busted up Boetschs face with blow after blow. But just when it seemed Boetsch was running out of options, he scored with a powerful, short left hand that stunned his opponent. Boetsch charged on the opportunity, and before Tavares could recover, "The Barbarian" landed a big right hand that ended the fight at 3:18 mark of the second frame and brought the crowd to its feet. "Even when I was getting hit, I knew that if I caught him with my left Id be able to finish him," Boetsch said. "I dont like to get beaten up, but I think that standing and trading was the best way to get the win and put on a great show for the fans. I felt that home crowd energy every time I connected with a hard shot tonight." Alan Jouban (10-2) made a scintillating UFC debut, shaking off a few power shots from a game Seth Baczynski (18-10) to score a first-round TKO victory. The two welterweights clashed in the centre of the cage from the opening bell, and both were happy to trade big strikes in the pocket. It was Baczynski who scored first, sending his opponent to a knee with a well-placed punch. But Jouban shook it off and battled back shortly after to score a pinpoint counter left that saw Baczynski drop to the canvas. Jouban followed with a few more punches to seal the win with 37 seconds remaining in the first round. "I caught a hard shot in the first, and I was definitely rocked for a minute, so I just kind of went into recovery mode," Jouban said. "We got into a flurry, and I was able to land my left hand. Its very true what they say about the ones you dont feel being the ones that connect the cleanest because I didnt notice that one connecting as well as it did. "Ive dreamed this dream every night for nine years, and Im just so happy that its finally come true." In a rousing heavyweight affair, Shawn Jordan (16-6) was battered and bruised but refused to quit, eventually earning an impressive third-round TKO over Jack May (7-2). It was the much-taller May who scored in the early going, using heavy punches to cut Jordan open and frustrate his opponent from distance. But every time it seemed Jordan was done, he would dig deep and find a way out of trouble. The persistence paid off in the third round, when an early takedown left May vulnerable, and Jordan pounded away from top position until he was awarded the TKO win at the 2:03 mark of the final frame. "I did my best not to deviate from the game plan Rich Clementi put in place for me, and thats what made the difference in the end," Jordan said after the win. "Im a pretty compact and heavy guy, so when I get top position, its very hard for guys to get me off them. I was able to capitalize on that time and get the finish. "Im going to get stitched up and take some time to heal, but Im ready to get back in there as soon as theyll let me." In the nights first main-card matchup, Brazilian Thiago Tavares (19-5-1) impressed in his first bout at featherweight after moving down from the lightweight division. Tavares was aggressive from the start, and his efforts were rewarded with a first-round submission over Robbie Peralta (18-5), courtesy of a rear-naked choke. "Im a black belt in jiu-jitsu, but I think I can execute techniques even better now that Im lighter, which will be very dangerous for my opponents," Tavares said after the win. "He was doing a very good job defending the submissions off his back, but I threw a little hook, and he opened up for a split second. I was able to throw my forearm across his neck and sink in the choke. "I have a lot of experience in the UFC, and Im just so happy to be competing at a high level with new challenges ahead." .

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Clayton Kershaw was asked to assess his performance against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night, and the Dodgers ace bemoaned the fact that he didnt have command of his fastball. Maybe if he did, hed have tossed another no-hitter. Kershaw still managed to follow his first career no-no by going eight marvelous innings, and Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier drove in a run apiece as the Dodgers scraped out a 2-0 victory. "It definitely wasnt easy tonight," Kershaw said. It only looked that way. "All night he felt like he was fighting it," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly explained. "His fastball command wasnt where he wanted it, but typical Clayton." Kershaw (8-2) allowed six hits and a walk while striking out eight. The two-time Cy Young winner hasnt allowed a run in 21 1-3 innings, spanning his near-perfect game against Colorado on Wednesday -- the only runner occurred on an error -- and his previous start against Arizona. Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save. Danny Duffy (4-7) dueled admirably with Kershaw for six innings, allowing one run on four hits and four walks. But the left-hander was done in by a high pitch count, needing a season-high 105, and was eventually lifted to protect his surgically repaired shoulder. Eric Hosmer had a pair of hits for the Royals, the first with one out in the first inning to end any thought of Kershaw tossing consecutive no-hitters. Otherwise, their offence was sporadic, unable to string together enough runners to pose much of a threat. "Hes as good as advertised, thats for sure, every bit of it," Hosmer said. "Hes definitely got his game plan, which he sticks to the whole time. Hes got four well-above average pitches. The main thing about him is he gets ahead and attacks you early. Thats a guy you dont want to get behind on with great off-speed and a fastball that he can hump to 95, 96. Luckily, thats the last time we face him." The Dodgers plated their first run after Justin Turner tripled to lead off the game. He scored on a hard grounder by Gonzalez, whhich deflected off Duffy and toward second base for what nearly ended up being the games only run.dddddddddddd Ethiers RBI single came off reliever Kelvin Herrera in the ninth inning. Duffy needed 29 pitches to survive the first, and he wiggled out of jams each of the next four innings, too. But while he was gritty enough to keep Kansas City in the game, a lineup that has struggled to put up runs for the last week failed him again. Kansas City has only scored 13 times while losing five of its last six. Los Angeles had lost all four of its games played at Kauffman Stadium, including the series opener Monday night, when the Royals beat up on Zack Greinke, their former ace. They had a much tougher time handling Kershaw. Showcasing his mid-90s fastball, power curveball and devastating slider, Kershaw at one point retired eight straight. And even when he ran into trouble, he slipped right out of it. Kershaw induced a double play after Hosmers single in the first. He rallied from a 3-0 count to Alex Gordon to strike him out with a runner aboard in the sixth. In the seventh, he got Justin Maxwell and Alcides Escobar on groundouts to leave a pair of runners on base. "Thats the best slider weve seen all year long," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "That thing had teeth with a bite." In fact, the biggest blight on Kershaws night may have been his walk to Gordon in the fifth inning. It was only the second hed allowed to a left-handed hitter this season. "I made some pitches when I had to," Kershaw said. "Tonight I was making a lot more stressful pitches. The no-hitter was stressful for more personal reasons." NOTES: Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (sore right shoulder) was scratched from the starting lineup. "Hopefully well have him tomorrow," Mattingly said. ...
