Duane “Bang” Ludwig has been fighting since he was a teenager, so his life has been about long, disruptive hours in the gym, constantly watching your diet, endless travel, and time away from the family.

Making the trip to Germany for UFC 122 actually ended up being a tremendous sacrifice for Ludwig, probably one of the most poignant sacrifices of his fight career. His wife, who was due to give birth later this month, ended up having the baby on Wednesday, a couple days after his poppa left for Germany.

That type of sacrifice, coupled with eight months of recovery from a severe leg injury in a losing effort in March, propelled Ludwig to dig deep in his winning effort via split decision over Nick Osipczak last night.

Congrats Bang. I was rooting for Osipczak before the fight, but I could see that you wanted the victory more.

 I assume (and hope) that the little guy and his lady are ok. That kind of stinks that he missed it, but at least he got the win.
