Wineland gets UFC TKO

Back To Front Page

Chesterton’s Eddie Wineland got back on the winning track Saturday night with a second round technical knockout victory over Yves Jabouin at UFC on Fox 10.

“I didn’t get off as early as I wanted to,” Wineland said in his post-fight comments. “But no one’s ever seen me fight on the ground. I saw the opportunity and pounded him out. In the past, I’d put somebody down and step back. But we pushed forward, jumped on him and finished the fight.”

Jabouin, fighting out of Montreal, used high kicks in the first round to keep Wineland at bay, but the Chesterton High grad landed a right hand after walking through a kick to put Jabouin on the mat in the second.
