Last night’s UFC on FX 4 had its moments of greatness mixed in with moments of complete frustration. The 12 bout fight card was filled with several had fought decisions, exciting finishes and one fight that brought UFC President Dana White to utter the words “dancing with the stars” when talking MMA.
Unfortunately the UFC on FX 4 main event did leave a lot to be desired and fell well short of the lightweight bouts potential. The bout between top lightweights Gray Maynard and Clay Guida was supposed to be a barn burner worthy of being called the “Fight of the Night” but ended up being a frustrating fight for Maynard and the fans. Guida brought a game plan that involved even more movement than typical and had Maynard chasing him around the Octagon. Showing his frustration in the Octagon with more emotion then ever, Maynard yelled at Guida and gave him the bird a few time as well.

In a bout the did live up the it potential, Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher completed their trilogy in the night co-main event. Rounds seven through nine were just as good as the first six and worthy of the bonus they won.

Starting off the UFC on FX 4 main card was Cub Swanson who won his second UFC bout against the Ultimate fighter winner Ross Pearson. The speed of Swanson was the key to victory and despite being taken down by Pearson a couple times, Swanson battered the face of Pearson on his way to the TKO win.
