UFC 127 saw a lot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 101 being taught. Light heavyweight James Te Huna came out strong early, taking down Alexander Gustafsson and working him over, but the tide quickly turned and Gustafsson quickly got the finish when it was his turn on top.

What was the high point of the fight?

The shift in momentum from Te Huna to Gustafsson was as dramatic as it was obviousl

Where do these guys go from here?

The 24 year old Gustafsson improves to 3-1 in the UFC. The sole mar on his record is a loss to his current training partner Phil Davis. Expect Gustafsson to begin climbing the ladder in the UFC's 205 pound division.

Te Huna drops to 1-1 in the UFC so I expect to see him remain in the UFC's international circuit for now.

Watch it now, later, or never?

If you're interested in seeing Gustafsson continue to develop, give it  a quick watch either now or soon before his next fight.
