Hathaway vs. Krauss Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of the UFC on FOX 3 card saw Hathaway take on Krauss in a welterweight battle.


Krauss got inside early, trying to box close with the rangey Hathaway, who landed a solid body kick. Krauss kept the pressure on and landed some good strikes in close then Hatahway backed up with a jab before knocking him down with a knee. Hathaway followed Krauss to the ground and the German recovered to fight back from the guard. Hathaway stood and allowed Krauss to get back to his feet, pressing forward behind a flying knee, but the German landed a solid right hand counter. Hathaway landed another knee to the head and Krauss took him down in the final minute off of a body knee.


Hathaway got an early takedown in the second and landed some solid shots from Krauss's guard, but the German displayed solid defense. Krauss got back to his feet midway through the round and pressed forward against Hathaway, having difficulty dealing with the reach. The fighters battled in the clinch and in the pocket to the horn, but both men had slowed considerably.


An aggressive Krauss got the better of the early boxing exchanges in the third, but Hathaway secured another takedown in the center of the cage and worked a steady ground and pound assault. Hathaway allowed Krauss to stand midway through the round and landed a flying knee. Krauss stalked Hathaway around the cage but walked into a spinning back fist. Hathaway landed another big knee in the final minute, forcing Krauss to clinch, and another huge knee landed that bloodied Krauss up before the horn.


The judges scored the bout 29-28, 30-27, and 30-27 for Hathaway, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.


Speaking with Joe Rogan following the bout, Hathaway said, "He's an incredible athlete and his recovery was great, but it goes with the performance of UFC fighters these days. I was a little ring rusty at first, but I really feel that this is the start of my great crusade to the top of the welterweight division."
