#UFCPittsburgh: Donald Cerrone Puts A Quick End To Alex Oliveira With Triangle Choke Hold

The main event for UFC Fight Night 83 in Pittsburgh certainly began in a way that you rarely see a fight begin.

#UFCPittsburgh: Sean Strickland Has To Chase Down Alex Garcia To Finish Him Off

I can't help, but feel a little sorry for Alex Garcia in this fight. At the start of the clip, after both guys stand up it quickly becomes clear that Garcia is done. Yet he can't tap out while standing two feet away from someone, and he can't just stand there and have his behind handed to him either.So he runs, gets caught, and then he gets pounded till the ref decides its been enough...

I'll never understand why some guys in UFC fights back pedal away from the action so much. It rarely seems to do them much good. They can't get away from the other guy--the Octagon is only so big. They knew what they were signing up for so why don't they hold their ground and fight?It sure didn't work for Augusto Mendes Sunday night against Cody Garbrandt. Cody caught up with him...
