Thoughts on Urijah Faber vs Eddie Wineland.


Technique

Recommended Posts

Very competitive fight IMO. Wineland impressed me, he showed some strength in the clinch and some great takedown defense.

 

 

Shane Carwin had a really funny Tweet about these guys:

 

Shane Carwin: Only way I would fight either of these two guys is in a phone booth.

 

Faber's speed was really impressive. Especially in that last round when he started to get his rhythm and Wineland's timing. Should be an interesting title shot. I think Faber needs to really work on his takedowns if he wants to take the title.

I thought it was a good fight, but frankly Faber failed to capture his usual energy in my eyes. And I could tell Wineland was really stepping up - he wanted to steal the spot light from the golden boy. In a way, I think with how closely competitive it was, he kind of did. A lot of people were expecting Eddie to roll over and play dead for Urijah and simply give him the easy "I beat a former champ at 135" win. Frankly, I think it's pretty obvious the money fight is Urijah/Cruz, but win, lose or draw with that bout, I could see a rematch with Eddie in the near future.
