UFC on Versus 5 Results: Joseph Benavidez and Jared Hamman Wrap Up the Prelims
The final two Facebook fights didn't disappoint, wrapping up the superb online portion of UFC on Versus 5: Hardy vs. Lytle.
Urijah Faber's less famous teammate, Joseph Benavidez, put the 135-pound division on notice with his sound thrashing of Eddie Wineland. The Beefcake opened up Wineland in the first round with overhand rights and continued to make a mess of Eddie's face for the remainder of the three rounds. Wineland scored a few flush bombs of his own, but they were fewer and farther in between.
But in the end, it was WIneland's lack of aggression and Benavidez' superior ability to switch from striking to wrestling that carried him to a unanimous decision. Not to mention a massively effective right hand—combine that with Beefcake's notorious ground game and the bantamweight division has another large blip on its radar.
The last prelim of the night pitted C.B. Dolloway against the former college football player, Jared Hamman.
The Doberman, another TUF alumnus and finalist, exhibited more polished striking and found the Messenger's chin on more than one occasion. Of course, the striking was a mere prelude to what Dolloway does best: take the fight to the ground and wrestle. Hamman was able to scramble out of danger on several occasions and even mounted his adversary, but C.B. still managed to dominate the action.
In the first round, the Doberman came perilously close to a stoppage via side choke and wobbled the Messenger on numerous occasions. If not for a granite beard on Hamman, C.B.'s large right hand would've brought the festivities to an end.
The second stanza told a different story, however, as Hamman came out like a house afire and the Doberman wilted under the frenzied pressure of the Messenger.
Jared Hamman was all over C.B. Dolloway from the jump, picking apart a staggering Doberman with flurries upon flurries of punches while standing. A desperate shot attempt from Dolloway was easily stuffed, but the Messenger followed his victim to the ground to dole out additional punishment.
Ultimately, Hamman pounded an unresponsive Dolloway into oblivion and forced referee Herb Dean to take mercy upon the vanquished at 3:38 of the second round.
