BROOMFIELD, Colo. – It’s been nearly three years, but Duane “Bang” Ludwig was finally able to exact a little payback on Ultimate Fighter alumnus Sam Morgan. It was short, but surely sweet for Ludwig as he won in the main event of Strikeforce’s first foray over the Rocky Mountains.
The action was fast and furious from the opening bell, but as Ludwig and Morgan traded blows, it was Ludwig that found his range. He landed a thundering left hook to Morgan’s body and followed with a crushing right hand that put him on the mat. Ludwig soon followed, unleashing a measured barrage of strikes that had Morgan tapping out from the punishment.
“He came and did his job last time and I didn’t. I wasn’t up for the fight and he was,” said Ludwig of their first meeting, also in Denver.
A measured technician, Ludwig says it was his training partners that lead him to such a furious victory. “Sometimes I just sit back and look for the shot, my partners keep telling me to just let it go and I finally did.”LINK
