UFC 137 results: Scott Jorgensen decisions Jeff Curran

via www.tapology.com

A pair of bantamweight battlers were in action on the main card of UFC 137: "Penn vs. Diaz" tonight (Sat., Oct. 29, 2011) in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Scott Jorgensen took on Jeff Curran.

Both men were looking to put their best foot forward in what amounted to their tryout in the big leagues in the world's premier mixed martial arts organization. Both men were evenly matched, but who would impress most under the bright lights on the big stage?

Sadly, neither fighter particularly impressed but it was Jorgensen who came away with the unanimous decision victory thanks to a wrestling heavy, top control game that ringside judges simply couldn't ignore.

"Young Guns" is now 2-0 inside the Octagon, unimpressive or not. A win is a win is a win.

The bout opened with Jorgensen pushing forward, staying aggressive and doing what he always does -- work hard. Once he got the fight to the mat, he did just enough on top to control his way through damn near the entire round.

Technical match-up was technical.

The second stanza saw much of the same. Jorgensen earned a sweet body slam takedown, along with a trip later on, while Curran only briefly threatened with a guillotine.

Round three was contested mostly on the feet. It was close all throughout, neither man pulling away from the other or doing anything to overly impress in their shot at the big time.

Gotta make 'em count, fellas.
