Jake Shields picked up the victory against Martin Kampmann but hardly looked like the man who's going to defeat UFC Welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre (GSP). Reports of Shields' weight cutting trouble appeared to be true as he struggled to maintain the advantage over Kampmann. Also, Albuquerque native and Jackson's fighter Diego Sanchez captured a must win victory over the very tough Paulo Thiago. Sanchez earned the fight of the night bonus and returned to his old fighting style of outworking his opponent. His destiny lies within his hands as both the 170lb and 155lb division looks promising.
The Lobos didn't get blown out against Rocky Long and San Diego State but still remain winless on the season. Lobo tight end Lucas Green provided the only glimmer of hope with six receptions for 100 yards. The 30-20 loss moves the Lobos to 0-7 for the year as they try to get their first win of the season on the road against Colorado State.
