UFC FIGHT NIGHT 17 – summary & results

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 17 took place in Tampa, Florida tonight, Saturday, February 7, 2009.

After last weekend produced a card with not one submission, tonight there were a hand full of beautiful technical chokes and a great armbar by Joe Lauzon in the main event. Lauzon fought a very tough Jeremy Stephens. Stephens was looking to take off Joe’s head but had to settle for just a little blood.
