Omigawa vs. Gamburyan Wiki Update Wiki
The second bout of UFC on FOX 4 saw Michihiro Omigawa take on Manvel Gamburyan in the featherweight division.
The grapplers felt each other out on the feet and it was Gamburyan landing first with a right but Omigawa dropped him with a straight left. Gamburyan got back to his feet and returned fire quickly, putting some combos together to back Omigawa up. The remainder of the round was a solid-paced boxing match, with Gamburyan landing the better strikes.
The featherweights met in the center of the Octagon and exchanged straights, Omigawa's seeming to land with more power as Gamburyan countered. After jockeying for position against the cage, Gamburyan spun and took Omigawa down, taking his back on the way down and getting his hooks in. Omigawa defended himself well and scrambled to his feet, where the striking match continued with the pace slowing.
Gamburyan rocked Omigawa with a head kick at the start of the third and chased him across the cage with punches, but Omigawa ate the strikes and fired back. Omigawa began to take back some momentum, pressuring Gamburyan with hooks and pushing him into the fence. Just when it seemed like Omigawa was wearing Gamburyan out, Gamburyan fired back and got a pair of huge slam takedowns, winning the grappling exchanges against the fence. Omigawa hipped out and grabbed Gamburyan's neck in a tight standing Guillotine, but Gamburyan survived.
The judges scored the bout 29-28, 29-28, and 30-27 for Gamburyan, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.
