UFC 136 Results: Instant Analysis, Reaction for Tiequan Zhang vs. Darren Elkins
UFC 136 had a pretty lackluster third fight between Darren Elkins and Tiequan Zhang.
You could just see the grappling advantage in favor of Elkins. Elkins continuously was in good position against Zhang on the ground.
There were only a couple times where Zhang had sunk in the guillotine choke and was close, but Elkins was able to roll out and get in good position.
Second and third round Zhang was just tired and demoralized and Elkins capitalized.
I was upset with Zhang’s performance I thought he would do better. He came out strong and almost had the fight finished early on. After that though he was really poor in every aspect of his game.
I think Zhang needs another small time fighter in the featherweight division.
Elkins though looked really good, his grappling looked sharp and I think he could start facing some low-mid tier talent in the featherweight division.
Again the fight lacked a lot of excitement and was just pretty boring overall compared to the last two fights where the fighters put on awesome shows.
