Jacob Volkmann beat Antonio McKee via split decision at UFC 125. Volkmann got the votes of two of the three judges who both scored it 29-28. The third judge scored it 29-28 for McKee.

The fight was booed lustily by a restless crowd frustrated by the utter lack of action.

Volkmann got the edge in take downs in the first two rounds but McKee got the sole take down of the third round. In the second round Volkmann had McKee's back and threatened with chokes until McKee escaped with seconds left in the round.

McKee is a 40 year old UFC debutante known for boring fights and exciting trash talk. He's been fighting as a professional Mixed Martial Artist since 1999 and brings an 11 fight win streak into the UFC. His wrestling-based style saw him go 4-0 in the IFL and has brought him 18 decision wins in 30 fights. Most recently he has reigned over Canada's Maximum Fighting Championship's lightweight division with his last two wins by TKO and submission in the first round.

Volkmann is ten years younger than McKee and has a serious edge in UFC experience going 2-2 with the promotion since 2009. But both of his UFC losses were at welterweight, he's 2-0 since cutting down to 155lbs with decision wins over Paul Kelly and Ronnys Torres.
