Faber defeats Wineland in tough fought decision

by Steve Cofield | source: yahoo.com

Eddie Wineland was supposed to be a nice showcase opportunity for Urijah Faber in his UFC debut. Instead, the 26-year-old made Faber work all 15 minutes. The former WEC featherweight champion, scored several takedowns in the final two rounds and looked faster with his hands on the way to a unanimous decision victory, 29-28 on all three scorecards, at UFC 128 in Newark, N.J.

 I was surprised that Wineland was able to manhandle Faber in the clinch, great job by Uriah of finding a way to win when things weren't going his way early

LOL @ the "haters" defense. What are you 12? Someone disagrees with me so they must be a "hater"?Faber didn't do shit. Boring as hell.

That was the first round, not the beginning of the last, when the fight was still a toss up.

 He was gushing about Wineland's takedown defense... for the whole round. Did you have it on mute?

Yeah he has a new space filler, looking forward to hearing it regularly in the next 100 UFC's.

Funny when Faber was missing punches and not able to get the takedown the first minute of the third round, Rogan said absolutely nothing......

"I thought he wanted to stand"-Faber. Ummmm. Faber was the guy going for the takedown FROM THE START. Faber went for it the ENTIRE FIRST ROUND. Hate how he is talking like he could have finished the fight but Wineland didnt want to stand. I'm not hiding my wife. She can see over top of him.
