In the short career of a fighter every fight is important, title fights even more so, but for former UFC and Pride fighter Travis “Diesel” Wiuff his recent IFC heavyweight title win on Aug. 15 in Canada had significance for a whole other reason.

As Wiuff explained to MMAWeekly.com, having the chance to honor a fallen friend by following in his championship footsteps made the fight all that more important.
