UFC Fight Night 10 ends up impressing

In what turned out to be an evening of great fights the tenth installation of UFC Fight Night (formerly Ultimate Fight Night) ended up impressing me.

The two first matches ended up in under 1 minute knockouts, courtesy of Drew McFedries and Anthony Johnson. McFedries showed some real heavy, crisp striking and I’m looking forward to seeing him back.

First Brazilian to grace the cage tonight was Roan Carneiro whom almost secured an anaconda choke against Jon Fitch in the first round. Fitch turned it around in the second, landing some punches and eventually forcing a dizzy Carneiro to give up his neck to a rear naked choke.

Jason Black made his UFC debut against Thiago Tavares, a bout where Tavares dominated Black on the ground and ended up submitting him via a triangle choke in the second round.

The main event featured a rematch between Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher. Fisher outstruck the merited kickboxer Stout in all three rounds and took the unanimous decision.

All and all Spike TV should be happy tonight, all broadcasted fights where high paced and entertaining. The question is how many people tuned in to a card without any big names as drawing power?
