UFC on Fuel TV 8: Recap

Hector Lombard showed about 50 seconds of greatness in round 3, but it was too late. The former Bellator fighter let Yushin Okami dictate the pace the majority of the fight, and in the end the judges had Yushin Okami defeating Hector Lombard via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28). Mark Hunt ‘s losses in his MMA career had almost all come from being submitted. Stefan Struve took advantage of that quickly and took Hunt out of his element and to the ground.

However, to much surprise, Hunt showed a much improved ground game. Hunt managed to weasel his way out of submission attempts by Struve, and his improved conditioning allowed him to throw some devastating punches that eventually earned him a victory over Struve. Mark Hunt def. Stefan Struve via TKO (punches) – Round 3, 1:44.

Diego Sanchez always puts on a show, and has multiple FOTN honors. However, this Diego didn’t seem like the Sanchez of old. He missed weight which caused him to forfeit part of his winnings, and he didn’t seem in shape or as aggressive as usual. In a uneventful fight, the judges had Diego Sanchez defeating Takanori Gomi via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28). Many, including Dana White did not agree with that outcome.

In one of the most epic battles we’ve seen in the Octagon as of late. Silva and Stann put on a show, and gave a blueprint to other fighters how to keep a job in the UFC. These two stood toe to toe and let it all hang out in a back and forth battle that saw both fighters connect and hit the canvass a few times. Eventually Silva landed a nasty 1-2 combo that dropped Captain America. Silva KO’s Stann in round 2.
