Bloodworth vs. Easton Wiki Update Wiki

The fourth fight of UFC on Versus 6 featured Byron Bloodworth taking on Mike "The Hulk" Easton. Both fighters were making their UFC debut, with Bloodworth taking the fight on short notice after Jeff Hougland dropped out of his fight with Easton due to injury. Bloodworth was unable to make weight, turning the bout into a 138 pound catchweight.


Easton, who had been training with Dominick Cruz, came out with a style of footwork resembling the bantamweight champion. Easton kept Bloodworth guessing with his unorthodox movement, though midway through the first round had yet to land many strikes. After separating from the clinch Easton landed a nice spinning back kick. Bloodworth looked for a spinning back elbow that missed its mark. A good low kick from Easton connected. The round was fast-paced, though with relatively little damage.


The short and stocky Easton kept pressing the action in the second round, with less frenetic movement though with good success on his low kicks and an uppercut. A left hook and right low kick appeared to hurt Bloodworth, as he stepped gingerly on his lead leg. Bloodworth couldn't get much going, and a kick to the balls didn't make his night any better. Bloodworth took a minute to recover and came out on the restart with a high kick. Easton slipped to the mat and stood back up, pressing forward once again as Bloodworth was reduced to constantly circling away on the defensive. In the clinch Bloodworth landed a knee to the head, then two knees to the body that dropped Bloodworth. Referee Kevin Mulhall was ready to save the bested Bloodworth.


Mike "The Hulk" Easton picked up his UFC win at 4:52 of the second round. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview to his hometown crowd, Easton commented, "That's how I fight... We work a lot of thai boxing, of course Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and prepared to press the pace."
