Former middleweight, Amir Sadollah, took on veteran lightweight, Duane Ludwig, in a welterweight fight tonight from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisc., which kicked off the UFC on Versus 5 broadcast.

Heading into the bout, it was a match up between two 170-pound Muay Thai-based fighters "toiling in obscurity." Ludwig made it crystal clear that he intends to emerge from the division's murky water ... for now, anyway.

Both men came out doing what they do best, striking, exchanging punches, kicks and knees in a classic kickboxing clinic. Ludwig landed a big looping left midway through the first round, which hurt The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 winner bad. Sadollah never went down, however, even though "Bang" connected with several more shots.

Sadollah, in typical fashion, weathered the storm and made it to the second round. He wouldn't fare much better in round two, getting beaten to the punch and rocked several times. Nonetheless, he once again hung tough and was able to see the start of the final frame. 

He actually did more than just see it -- he probably performed better in it than the two previous. Sadollah, fatigued, pushed the pace and landed several key (slow motion) strikes. But it was once again a case of too little, too late.

Ludwig went on to earn a unanimous decision victory, snapping Sadollah's two fight win streak and extending his own to two.
