Nick Osipczack vs 'Bang' Ludwig moved to main card

by Andrew Brining | source:

With the loss of Alessio Sakara and Jorge Rivera, that means Ludwig and Osipczak get bumped from the prelims all the way to the co-main event.

Not too shabby for those two, but paying fans have to be a little irked at the idea of a co-main event that features two guys who couldn't be considered serious contenders or even up-and-comers. Both dudes are coming off consecutive losses and weren't exactly atop the sport prior to the defeats.

Osipczak is only about a year removed from an uninspiring turn as a member of the British squad on Season 9 of TUF and that was one of the weakest casts in the show's history.

I don't think BANG was pushing it as hard as he could have in the third. He needed this win and he knew he was ahead (or at least he hoped the judges felt that way). This win was what he needed to help get him back on track. He still has some good fights ahead of him as long as they set him up with other stand up guys. I'm a fan and I'm glad he won!

Ludwig nailed him with an elbow about half way through the third and Nick looked like shit after.Nick won round one on account of dropping him and some pounding.Two to Ludwig.Three, Ludwig dominates him.Well earned win.Although I was suprised that while Ludwig had totally open reign on Nick at the end of the third he didn't actually hurt him more.

 I don't understand how people can say Nick won round two when all he got was a take down and some half-shot ground and pound late in the round... Bang outstruck him big time on the feet for most of that round. How does one take down that Bang gets up from equal victory???? Bang wins a split any way you Judge it!

In the 2nd Nick got soundly outstruck on the feet, got a takedown and did fuck all with it, with Bang getting back up. No way Nick won the 2nd.

The second round was pretty close, I leaned towards Nick, but I can see it being scored the other way
