Brian Bowles defeats Damacio Page via Submission (Guillotine Choke) in Round One
-The odds of Bowles winning the fight weren’t low going in, but winning with the same submission at the exact same time frame in the first round? A bit higher… An exciting back and forth brawl, but Bowles proved more effective, knocking Page to the ground and taking hold of his exposed neck as he tried to stand back up.
Chris Weidman defeats Alessio Sakara via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
-Matt Serra’s protégé Weidman won his first UFC fight through great adversity. After entering the fight as a heavy underdog and getting rocked in the first round by the dangerous striker, Weidman ground out a bloody victory over the veteran Sakara.
Mark Munoz defeats C.B. Dollaway via TKO (Strikes) in Round One
-Dollaway scored a nice takedown early in the fight, but opted to stand the fight up himself from top position over Munoz. This turned out to be a mistake, as the fight ended soon after with a vicious right hand.
Diego “the Dream” Sanchez defeats Martin “the Hitman” Kampmann via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
Yes, Diego changed his nickname from “the Nightmare” to “the Dream.” Cute.
-This isn’t the first fight where you could say Sanchez’s face was punched off. It was literally hanging on by a thread. Kampmann picked apart Sanchez with his more technical striking throughout the first round, knocking down and bloodying him in the first few minutes.
Sanchez rallied through the crisp striking in the second, cornering Kampann against the cage and landing some nice shots in a brawling exchange. More of what happened in the first however, Kampmann picking Sanchez apart and easily stuffing his take-downs.
The third round saw a little more success for Diego, pressing Kampmann into the brawl that Sanchez prefers. As in the first two round, however, Sanchez ate a lot of big shots, turning his face into mangled slop. (seriously. It was bad…)
Despite Kampmann’s dominant performance, he lost in a heavily controversial split decision. The hits keep coming for the UFC with bad judging.To his credit, Sanchez showed tremendous heart and finished the fight strong after taking heavy damage. “The Dream” is still one of the most durable fighters in the UFC, and deserves all the respect in the world, but he certainly did not do enough to win the fight.
