UFC on FUEL TV 3 Main Card Results and Recap

The UFC on FUEL TV 3: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier main card got a solid lead in from the night’s preliminary card started that streamed on Facebook. If you didn’t head over to the FUEL TV fast enough though, you might have missed the opening bout that lasted only 50 seconds.

While the main card opened with a bang, it closed with a fight of the night performance between Chan Sung Jung and Dustin Poirier. The featherweights went into the bonus rounds and just when you thought the tides were turning in the favor of Poirier, the Korean Zombie slammed the door shut in impressive fashion.

In between the main event and the 50 second knockout by the birthday boy Tom Lawlor, the UFC on FUEL TV 3 main card saw four consecutive fights go the distance. Three of those four were highly entertaining though and if it wasn’t for the slow-moving co-main between Amir Sadollah and Jorge Lopez it would have been a clean sweep.

UFC on FUEL TV 3 Main Card Results

145 lbs.: Chan Sung Jung defeated Dustin Poirier by 4th rd Submission (D’arce Choke)

  • What a way to end the night! Jung used everything in his bag of tricks and even though he looked gassed in the third round, he turned it on in the fourth round. Jung landed a big uppercut and left hook on Poirier that drove him back. Jung moved him and secured a choke that turned the lights out on Poirier and put the Korean Zombie near the top of the featherweight division. Poirier suffers his first UFC loss, snapping his five fight winning streak. Jung has won three in a row and could make a good case for being next featherweight in line for a title shot.

170 lbs.: Amir Sadollah defeated Jorge Lopez by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)

  • After watching Cerrone vs. Stephens and Jabouin vs. Hougland this fight was hard to watch and not co-main event worthy. Lopez did practically nothing in the final two rounds, besides from clinching and hoping for a takedown. This fight was more of who was the least deserving to win the most deserving……

155 lbs.: Donald Cerrone defeated Jeremy Stephens by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

  • The cowboy came to prove a point tonight that his last performance against Nate Diaz was just a fluke. Cerrone out struck the striker and battered Stephens with kicks to the lead leg and heavy hands that cut him up. After the fight Cerrone said he wanted to fight on the Denver card coming up, think he’ll get his wish.

135 lbs.: Yves Jabouin defeated Jeff Hougland by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-27)

  • This fight could have been stopped on at least two spate occasions but the referee let Hougland continue and he made it through the fight. Hougland has a ton of heart but he was dominated by Jabouin for 15 minutes. The win improves Jabouin’s UFC record to 3-1 and drops Hougland’s record to 1-1.

205 lbs.: Igor Pokrajac defeated Fabio Maldonado by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28)

  • A “Fight of the Night” candidate as both Maldonado and Pokrajac went toe to toe and back and forth for 15 minutes. While fun for the fans it was a very tough fight to score, at least that what everyone but the three judges though. No way the fight was 30-27 for Pokrajac, who has now won three fights in a row.

185 lbs.: Tom Lawlor defeated Jason MacDonald by 1st rd. KO

  • MacDonald went for an early takedown but was denied and things went downhill after that. A stiff left to the face, followed by a right to the ear dropped MacDonald face first on the canvas 50 seconds into the fight.
