Healy vs. Wisely Wiki Update Wiki

The third Showtime-televised bout of Strikeforce Challengers 18 featured Pat "Bam Bam" Healy taking on Eric "Little Lee" Wisely in a lightweight contest. Healy entered the bout 2-1 in his prior Strikeforce competition, while Wisely was making his promotional debut.


Healy started the fight stalking the shorter Wisely around the cage until bring the fight down with a takedown a minute in. Wisely attacked suddenly for an armbar, seemingly catching Healy off-guard and having "Bam Bam" in deep trouble. Healy escaped and jumped up to his feet. Wisely attacked with an awkward striking style, darting in with lunging strikes and then fading to the side. Healy took him back to the ground and worked punches from on top in guard. Wisely again showed his ground acumen, latching on a heel-hook attempt and transitioning to a kneebar before Healy slipped free.


Wisely launched a front kick to begin round two, coming up short but keeping Healy guessing. In the clinch Wisely went for a rolling kneebar that drew a reaction from the audience but couldn't catch the submission savvy Healy. Healy landed a few hammerfists on top but appeared to be playing a dangerous game with the tricky ground skills of Wisely. Healy passed to side control and landed a few knees to the body. In the final seconds of the round, Wisely slid out from underneath and attacked for a triangle armbar. Healy escaped and the round ended.


Wisely showed effective clinch work at the start of round three but succumbed to the larger Healy and fell to his back, where he risked losing the fight on points. Wisely remained active from his back though didn't appear to have the stamina or the surprise factor needed to catch Healy in any submission attempts late in the fight. Healy appeared to have edged the fight on the scorecards despite inflicting a limited amount of damage from top position.


The official scorecards had Healy the victor by unanimous decision.
