Curran vs. Jorgensen Wiki Update Wiki

The eighth bout of UFC 138 featured Scott Jorgensen taking on Jeff Curran in a bantamweight contest.


Jorgensen tripped Curran to the ground after some early exchanges and began working from within Curran's guard. Curran attempted a series of sweeps and escapes off of his back but Jorgensen stayed heavy and maintained top position. Referee Kim Winslow stood the pair with 30 seconds left in the round and Curran landed a good punch, only to be taken down one more time.


Some power exchanges to begin the second round with Jorgensen grabbing a headlock and attempting to throw knees to the head. Curran nearly had a guillotine choke in a scramble but Jorgensen showed superior wrestling and positional control in escaping danger and tying Curran up against the fence once again. Curran nearly swept Jorgensen once again, and truly showed fantastic jiu jitsu ability, however it was not enough to get out of defensive positions and being on his back the majority of the time.


Jorgensen landed a nice right and early in round three. Curran lunged forward with looping punches, looking for a home run. Curran stuck his head forward taunting Jorgensen and asking him to engage, but Jorgensen maintained composure and kept the pace of the fight the same. Curran shot in for a takedown in the final seconds, Jorgensen sprawled out and ended the fight in top position.


The judges scored the bout 29-28, 29-28, and 30-27 in favor of Scott Jorgensen via unanimous decision. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Jorgensen commented, "I feel good, sorry to everyone who didn't get to see the typical Young Guns style... It's the first time I've ever had an actual Jiu Jitsu coach, I would have wanted a more excited fight, but that's the way it goes sometimes."
