'Bang' Ludwig wins battle of attrition over Amir Sadollah

by Michael David Smith | source: mmafighting.com

Amir Sadollah has been carefully brought along by the UFC since winning The Ultimate Fighter three years ago, but on Sunday night his career progress took a step backward at the hands of Duane Ludwig.

Ludwig showed that he was a superior striker -- and exposed some flaws in Sadollah's game -- by winning a unanimous decision at the UFC Live on Versus event in Milwaukee. All three judges scored the fight 29-28 for Ludwig, who took control early on and managed to hold on despite appearing to run out of steam late in the fight.

 3rd could have gone to Amir. Bang was tired and had nothing on his punches, Amir landed the push kick to the face, etc. Even if you don't agree, you have to admit it's conceivable and not a big fucking deal anyway.
