So I will admit last night at UFC Live on Versus I totally marked out for Diego Sanchez coming out to La Bamba. Sanchez looked great but I thought his opponent Martin Kampmann looked a little bit better. Diego won by unanimous decision (29–28, 29–28, 29–28). Diego no longer calls himself the nightmare. He now calls himself the dream because he has cleaned up his life and wants to be a better fighter and role-model. It was a great fight card that included:
-Bantamweight bout: Brian Bowles vs. Damacio Page
Bowles defeated Page by technical submission (guillotine choke) at 3:30 of round 1.
-Middleweight bout: Alessio Sakara vs. Chris Weidman
Weidman defeated Sakara by unanimous decision (30–27, 30–27, 30–27).
-Middleweight bout: C.B. Dollaway vs. Mark Muñoz
Muñoz defeated Dollaway by TKO (punches) at 0:54 of round 1.
This is an impressive debut for UFC on Versus. I really enjoy the pre-fight coverage, something that Spike never had. Great showing for these fighters and the UFC. Stay tuned for more the next time UFC is on Versus.
