Woodley, Dunham impressive on UFC 156 FX prelims

source: mmajunkie.com
 

It wasn't pretty, and it's unlikely to occupy much space on his highlight reel, but Evan Dunham outlasted fellow lightweight Gleison Tibau and picked up a split-decision victory.

Dunham simply soldiered through fatigue and finished strong to win over two of the night's three judges.

The lightweight bout closed out the preliminary card of Saturday's UFC 156 event at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. It aired on FX after additional prelims on Facebook and prior to the pay-per-view main card.

If Tyron Woodley was looking to make a statement on behalf of Strikeforce, consider it made.

If he was looking to rebound after a rough knockout loss his most recent time out, consider it done.

Woodley wasted no time and delivered a brutal 36-second knockout of Jay Hieron, knocking the veteran down and pouncing before leaving him out cold on the canvas.

Anyone else note the irony if a guy having a tattoo saying "Only God Can Judge Me" fighting in MMA?

And who was saying this was going to be a crap card? Not too bad so far.

I thought the other fight would've been the better choice.

Woodley just wrecked hieron faster than gsp did. Perhaps he will become a #1 contender in a few fights.
