Posted on February 16, 2012 by John Petit
UFC On FUEL held their first UFC event on the network tonight, coming into peoples living rooms live from Omaha, Nebraska. Fans in attendance, and subscribers at home, were treated to a 6 fight main card headlined by Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger. Ellenberger was able to really put the pressure on Sanchez early, and although Diego showed alot of heart in the third round; it wasn’t enough to win the decision.
In the co main event Stefan Struve defeated Dave Herman after an admitted slow start in the first round. Once the 6’11 Dutchman was able to get comfortable with his strikes the tide quickly turned in his favor. He was able to knock Herman to the floor with an uppercut, and finish him with strikes from the mount.
