UFC 114 Results: John Hathaway Stuns Diego Sanchez

John Hathaway came into the evening a fairly large underdog to Diego Sanchez but was considered by many to be a major prospect.  Diego Sanchez had only lost three times in over twenty-five fights and all three of those losses were to top five opponents.

It didn't take too long for Sanchez to find out that he was in with a legitimate threat though.  As Sanchez shot in for a takedown in the first round he was timed perfectly by Hathaway who connected with a big knee.  A stunned Sanchez fell to his back and began to eat a flurry of punches from the British welterweigh.  While Sanchez was able to survive to the end of the round he was never able to get back on track against his larger foe.

Hathaway used good takedown defense and a long, hard right hand that landed repeatedly to take a clear decision.  The official scorecards read 30-27, 30-27 and 30-26 all for John Hathaway.  With the win there is no doubt that Hathaway has arrived on the scene as a top of the division talent.
