UFC Fight Night 33 results: Ryan Bader beats Anthony Perosh in one-sided fight

Esther Lin

If nothing else, Anthony Perosh proved once again that Australians are a tough breed.

But that was about the only bright spot for the 41-year old veteran in his UFC Fight Night 33 bout with Ryan Bader.

Perosh took a wicked beating from The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner in their light heavyweight bout in Brisbane. Bader landed early and often en route to a unanimous decision win.

That only one judge saw a single 10-8 round in this one-sided beatdown of a fight (30-27, 30-27, 30-26 were scores) served as another reminder that MMA scoring is in need of an overhaul.

Bader started off fast in round one, scoring a quick takedown. While Perosh got to his feet a couple times, he took a beating when they hit the ground, as Bader delivered ground-and-pound elbows and opened a deep cut.

"I did what I could, he's freaking tough," said Bader.

Round two was similar to round one. By round three, things simply got painful to watch. Bader scored an early takedown and spent the bulk of the round raining down punches and elbows. With the referee standing around idly and Perosh's corner apparently not inclined to throw in the towel under any circumstances, Perosh took his beating until the horn sounded.

The win for Bader was a nice rebound to his September KO loss to Glover Teixeira. "We worked what we needed to work on," said Bader (16-4). "I didn't get the knockout, but I got the fight."

Perosh dropped to 14-8 and has lost two of his past three fights.
