Both great fighters.

Funch had a tough debut, and he can definitely be a great fighter in the UFC if he gets a few good wins together.

I think Claude Patrick is a great opponent for Ricardo, and I think he should be a favorite. He's won a ton of fights, and finished all of his opponents, except for McFedries (who he lost to in 2002).

Patrick looks pretty unstoppable, though he hasn't fought anyone as good as Funch. That's what makes this a fun fight.

Patrick with the 2nd round sub:

Round 1 - Referee Tony Williamson is the third man in the cage for the second bout of the night. Southpaw Funch lands an inside leg kick to start. Patrick closes, then ruses in to clinch at the cage. He wants this one down, apparently. He lands a knee against the cage, and a foot stomp. Patrick knees the legs. Funch reverses against the cage and grabs for a single leg. They reverse, and Patrick gets a body lock and takes the fight down. Patrick passes to half-guard while Funch squirms to re-take guard. He does, and Patrick postures up. Funch hints at an armbar, but Patrick isn't having it. Referee Williamson stops the action and stands the two up. He's having a chat with Funch. Might have been an illegal upkick from Funch. After a short break, the ref re-starts them with Patrick in Funch's guard. Patrick posts up again, and Funch almost kicks him off. Patrick with a couple of big left hands before he goes back to guard. Patrick posts up and throws another left, then another. Funch trying to kick him off. Patrick passes to half guard and lands a few shots in transition. Funch's left eye is a bit swollen. Patrick grabs a guillotine with a pass and goes for the choke from mount as the ten second mark is sounded. Patrick can't close it, though, before round ends. MMAjunkie.com scores the round 10-9 for the Canadian Patrick.

Round 2 - Funch leads with a leg kick. Patrick closes again, though, from the get-go and attempts to wrestle it down. Funch reverses against the cage and drives for a leg. Patrick looks for a guillotine and the audience chants for a knee. Funch keeps driving for that takedown and the action stalls. Funch with a knee to the leg. Funch gives up takedown attempt and Patrick jumps for a guillotine at the cage wall. Funch is caught. With nowhere to go, he taps quickly. The official time is 1:48 of the second frame.
