UFC Fight Night 27 results: Thatch dominates Edwards, Andrews mounts big comeback

UFC Fight Night 27 continued it's Fox Sports 2 card with an electric performance from Brandon "Rukus" Thatch. Not to be outdone Dylan Andrews came back from two rounds down for a late KO of Papy Abedi.

UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2 was a bit uneven with it's broadcast schedule. The first three fights were over in the first hour, leaving a full hour to for the remaining prelim fight.

Brandon Thatch announced publicly what many media members had been whispering, that he may be the next big prospect in the welterweight division. He came on strong at range and when Edwards changed levels to take the fight to the ground cracked him with a brutal high kick. From there he locked Edwards into the clinch and used his massive size and technical Muay Thai game to brutalize the smaller fighter.

Dylan Andrews put a stamp on the Fox Sports 2 card with a massive comeback performance against Abedi. Abedi looked fantastic in his return to middleweight with slick striking, great clinch work and solid top control. He did however have trouble letting Andrews up off his back and, combined with his long standing problems with running out of gas late in fights, it came back to cost him. Andrews came into the third after two rounds of being effectively stifled in all areas of the fight. Abedi didn't have the energy to continue with his early dominance and when he and Andrews locked up Andrews hit him with a series of hard uppercuts that dropped Abedi to the canvas. From there Andrews swarmed and dribbled Abedi's head off the mat for a deserved TKO stoppage.
