Brunson grinds decision win in UFC debut

 

Let's just say that those expecting a slugfest were grossly underwhelmed.

Brunson, a former collegiate wrestler, timed "The Crippler's" first significant strike attempt and took him down with a double leg takedown, keeping him on his back for the majority of the first round.

The Strikeforce veteran would continue his wrestling assault throughout the fight, although both men's pace slowed down drastically in both rounds two and three.

Did we watch the same fight? He landed a ton of strikes on Leben from what I saw, far more than he took. Can we get a fightmetric on this?

My wife has a sick jab-cross combo. Her left hook needs work, though.
