The highly pimped WEC Live on Versus was last night. The two title fights were over quick and neither quite went as expected.
There was a lot of talk about how Americans may not take to the fighting style of Paulo Filho. He is a Brazilian Jui-Jitzu fighter who fights a thinking man’s fight…this can be translated as boring for the casual fan. Unexpectedly, Filho let his hands go and won a 1st round TKO.
In the post fight interview Filho appeared to be bored and acted like a guy who just finished his first day as a temp at a crappy factory.
Here are the videos of the two title fights, both ending in the first round. Watch them while you can as they likely won’t be up long.
