James Head at UFC 131When all was said and done at UFC 149: Faber vs. Barão on Saturday night, James Head walked out of the Octagon in Calgary with a split decision victory over Brian Ebersole.

Lighting up the night, they did not, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.

Head looked to take charge of the fight early, sprawling out Ebersole’s takedown attempts and working punches to the body, trying to soften him up.

He did effectively take Ebersole out of his game, defending nearly every takedown attempt in the fight, but Head never really got enough of his own offense going to fully take control. To be fair, much of that probably had to do with the constant feints and odd angles that Ebersole showed all night.

Head turned it on, if ever so slightly, in the final round to once again fend off the takedowns, and this time landing a few more sharp punches coupled with knees to the midsection.

Head did enough to earn 29-28 scores from two of the judges, while the other saw it the same tally but in Ebersole’s favor.

Having lost his UFC debut to Nick Ring, Head has now strung together back-to-back victories, while Ebersole has more food for thought, as he ponders a move from welterweight down to the 155-pound class.
