SYDNEY – In theory, Adam Wieczorek’s UFC debut was a success. In a reality, though, that’s not entirely true.
Wieczorek (9-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) won a unanimous decision with a trio of 29-28 scores against Anthony Hamilton (15-9 MMA, 3-7 UFC) in a heavyweight bout that opened the preliminary card of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 121 at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney.
It was Wieczorek’s eighth straight win and opens up his UFC career with a victory. He hasn’t had a setback in six years.
So what was the problem? Plain and simply, Wieczorek feels like he didn’t perform up to standards, which he attributed to being tired right from the start.
Check out the video above to hear Wieczorek explain why he wasn’t completely satisfied, despite earning the win.view original article >>
