The first fight on the Fuel TV main card had all the potential to be a Fight of the Night candidate, but the fight result came early due to an unfortunate injury.

In the opening main card bout, England native Che Mills defeated Duane Ludwig by TKO due to a knee injury at 2:28 in the first round.

Here is what we learned from this bout.


What We'll Remember From This Fight:

Unfortunately, we'll remember Duane Ludwig dropping down and pointing to his knee in pain. This fight could have provided some crazy fireworks.


What We Learned about Mills:

He has good control in the Octagon, which he displayed early on. It's always good to get that important bounce back win.


What We Leaned about Ludwig:

Hard to take anything away from a fight where you are defeated due to an injury. 


What's Next for Mills:

I'm definitely digging the idea of Che Mills taking on Kyle Noke. Possibly at the TUF: Smashes Finale?


What's Next for Ludwig: 

Hopefully Ludwig's injury isn't too serious so he can return soon. A matchup with Charlie Brenneman or Seth Baczynski if he can return with a reasonable timetable.
