When Carlos Condit was forced out of his UFC 127 fight with Chris Lytle, UFC newcomer Brian Ebersole was named as a replacement. Because he has never fought in the Octagon, Ebersole is far from a household name, but his record speaks for itself.
Ebersole has won 46 fights during his eleven year MMA career, which has included wins over multiple former UFC fighters. Currently, Ebersole has won eleven of his last twelve fights, and that one loss came against Hector Lombard, who is widely considered one of the best middleweights outside of the UFC.
Ebersole holds a win over a former UFC Welterweight Champion in Carlos Newton. Additionally, Ebersole has fought many more current and former UFC fighters such as Stephan Bonnar, Ed Herman, and Kyle Noke.
Defeating a UFC veteran like Lytle on short notice will be no easy task, but Ebersole's experience makes him a fighter that should never be overlooked. Here are ten videos that should help fans familiarize themselves with Ebersole...and if you missed it, check out the UFC 127: Lytle vs. Ebersole Pre-Fight Interview featuring both men, courtesy of UFC.com.
