So you wanna be a mixed martial artist? You may get a little bloodied..
This week’s UFC On Versus saw Diego Sanchez face up against the relentless technical striker Martin Kampmann in what quickly turned into a war and a bloodfest.
With Sanchez having recently changed his nickname to “The Dream”, fans were left wondering whether this referred to his chances of getting a takedown against Kampmann who displayed awesome takedown defence and counterstrike technique at every attempt.
Facing up against a vastly superior fighter, Sanchez showed an awesome amount of heart and fighting spirit, lasting the full three rounds and landing flurries of punches that rocked Kampmann and left both fighters bloodies and bruised.
With Sanchez narrowly getting the victory on points, pundits are already calling this fight an early contender for Fight of the Year.
