The prelims to UFC 157 were arguably the best action of the night, as Dana White declared Bermudez vs Grist as the “Fight of the Night”. Right off the bat Grist had a great pace, and a nasty stiff jab that was keeping Dennis Bermudez off balance. These two exchanges bombs in this back and forth battle. However, in the third round Bermudez connects hard, and continues to connect. Grist takes some serious punishment, but show incredible hard and somehow manages to hold on.They again exchange punches back and forth. Herb Dean refuses to step in even when its looks like it’s over for Grist. Grist holds on showing his tenacity and heart, but Bermudez gets a well earned a split decision.
