On the main card in Saturday's UFC on Fuel 5, a battle of Johns took place in the UK, as welterweight John Hathaway and John Maguire faced off.
The fight wasn't the best, but it did result in a decision victory for John...Hathaway.
Here is what we learned from the fight.
What We'll Remember From This Fight
I already forgot most of it, but I'll remember that Hathaway has a long reach that he can utilize very well on his feet.
What We Learned About Hathaway
Once again, his reach is a long one for the division, and he utilizes it very well. Also, Hathaway displayed a nice top game in the second round against the jiu-jitsu fighter Maguire.
What We Learned About Maguire
The master of Gypsy Jiu-Jitsu does indeed have an impressive ground game, but Maguire will need to work on his stand-up if he wants to contend in the welterweight division.
What's Next for Hathaway
There are a lot of potential matchups for Hathaway, including the loser of Ellenberger vs. Hieron, Amir Sadollah win or lose or even a matchup with Matthew Riddle.
What's Next for Maguire
Good jiu-jitsu matchup between Maguire and T.J. Waldburger works for me.
