Previewish – UFC 101 – Shane Nelson vs. Aaron Riley 2

August 6, 2009

Previewish is a chance to meet the guys on the undercard. It’ll be a great chance to try and get to know the lesser known guys that fill out the spaces in the PPV shows that are created after quick stoppages. Sometimes, they make the PPV worth the buy.

“Sugar” Shane Nelson (12-3) vs. Aaron Riley (27-11-1)

Lightweights

These guys just fought in March. Nelson won on a controversial stoppage after he knocked Riley down. I can’t find video anywhere (Come on, Zuffa. Help a brother out.) The win was Nelson’s 9th straight and second in the UFC. The most interesting thing about Riley’s career is that he fought Robbie Lawler at UFC 37. Doesn’t that seem like a million years ago? Most people hadn’t even heard of the UFC when way back then.
