Brian Ebersole defeats Chris Lytle via Unanimous Decision in his UFC debutPosted on February 26, 2011, 10:01 PM by Joey Santosus
Aussie native Brian Ebersole outworked veteran Chris Lytle en-route to scoring a Unanimous decision victory in his UFC debut.
In a hard fought match-up, both Lytle and Ebersole went back and fourth exchanging and showing great grappling ability. The major change in momentum came in the second round, when Ebersole landed a big knee that dropped Lytle, leaving him slouched against the cage. From that point, "Lights Out" never seemed to fully recover as the Aussie continuously neutralized Lytle's striking by closing the distance and dragging the fight to the ground. Much of the remainder was contested on the mat, where Ebersole was able to maintain positional dominance en-route to a unanimous decision win.
