If you missed WEC last night then this post is to make you feel bad. I was expecting some pretty good fights and I was pleasantly surprised to witness some great ones. All three Title Holders successfully defended their belts with ease except Paulo Filho who barely pulled off a 2nd round submission against a dominant Chael Sonnen. Doug Marshall almost ripped Ariel Gandulla’s arm in half with an armbar in the 1st round.
In a furious display on why he is one of the best P4P MMA fighters in the world, Featherweight Urijah Faber weathered a full round of Gracie BJJ Black Belt Jeff Curran on his back and then let the fireworks go in the 2nd, winning with a choke. Faber also put on a clinic of creative spontaneity, at times pulling off moves and locks that stunned even Frank Mir. The above picture is an example, a knee to the face off of one leg while Curran held the other. After winning, a gracious Faber politely called out Pulver who also won. This looks like a fight that will happen soon and should be one of the best matchups of the year.
