It's an old story in MMA: undefeated European kickboxer comes to the UFC, gets a wrestling lesson and loses a decision. Last night at UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia the European kickboxer was Maciej Jewtuszko. The man giving him the wrestling lesson and taking home the unanimous decision win was Brit Curt Warburton.
What was the high point of the fight?
Hard to pick out a single moment that stood out. Warburton's performance was text book, but not scintillating.
Where do these guys go from here?
Warburton improves to 1-1 in the UFC and has earned a return.
Jewtuszko picks up his first loss but should be back on a UFC card in Europe some time in 2011.
Watch it now, later, or never
Later. It's not a terrible fight but it's not one you'll be telling your grandchildren about or anyone else.
