The second bout of UFC Ultimate Fight Night 28 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil was another match between an American and a Brazilian at Welterweight, but the result was the opposite of the first, with the Brazilian earning a decision victory.
Keith Wisniewski of Indiana enjoyed a clear size advantage over Ivan “Batman” Jorge of Santa Catarina, who took the bout on short notice and usually fights at lightweight. In fact, Jorge earned a championship belt at lightweight with the Jungle Fight promotion, where he’s known as Ivan “Batman.”
Wisniewski appeared to earn an early advantage, shrugging off Jorge’s takedown attempts and attacking with strong striking in the clinch. He continued the same strategy throughout the slow second and third rounds, and while Jorge found more success as the bout concluded, the decision came as a surprise to many, including, seemingly, the UFC announcing team.
At Ultimate Fight Night 28, Keith Wisniewski defeats Ivan Jorge by unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, and 29-28).
