Duane Ludwig defeats Nick Osipczak via Split Decision at UFC 122Posted on November 13, 2010, 02:44 PM by Anton Gurevich
MMA veteran "Bang" Duane Ludwig defeated Nick Osipczak via Unanimous Decision, at the main card opener of the UFC 122 event in Oberhausen, Germany.
Ludwig dominated Osipczak in the first round with perfectly-timed striking combinations, but the Brit managed to bounce back a knock down his opponent, adding some serious ground and pound strikes in the process. Nick Osipczak was clearly the better man in the second round, using his reasonable advantage to keep Ludwin at distance. Osipczak landed good strikes, adding a takedown as an exclamation point for winning the round.
Third round was a whole different story. Osipczak completely "gassed out". Kept his hands low and refused to exchange with the crafty veteran Duane Ludwig. "Bang" had several opportunities to finish the fight, but Osipczak once again managed to survive and take the fight to decision.
I scored the bout 29-27 for Ludwig. The judges had it 28-30, 29-28, 29-28, awarding Duane Ludwig a victory via Split Decision. "Bang" improves his MMA record to 20 wins and 11 losses
