The curtain-jerker at UFC Fight Night 117 turned out to be bad news for faces.
As in, both of them.
Daichi Abe might have walked away with the unanimous-decision victory over Hyun Gyu Lim after a close fight, but he had to suffer an eye poke and a golf ball-sized hematoma on his cheek just to get it.
As for Lim (13-7-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC), he was looking relatively unscathed right up until the final minute of the fight, but a counter right hand from Abe (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) smashed his nose and dropped him to the mat, with blood pouring from his face by the time he landed.
That punch might have helped seal the fight for Abe, but let’s just say that for at least the next few days or so, neither of them will have any trouble convincing people that they fight in a cage for a living.view original article >>
