UFC 128 Results: Urijah Faber Defeats Eddie Wineland
Give Eddie Wineland credit—I stand by my statement that he wasn't brought in to beat Urijah Faber, but the would-be cannon fodder did everything in his power to do just that and he came uncomfortably close.
Once the California Kid established his rhythm in the waning moments of the first round, he never really looked back and actually got stronger as the bout wore on—landing his best strikes of the night and securing yet another beautiful takedown to tie a bow on the victory.
Eddie just didn't have an answer for the fierce pressure exerted by Faber and couldn't take enough advantage of Urijah's unsteady start. Nevertheless, he gave the audience a better battle than expected and took one of the sport's brightest stars the full distance.
There aren't any moral victories in the combat game (or so I'm told), but this has to be close.
Urijah Faber defeats Eddie Wineland by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
