Tiequan Zhang and Jon Tuck Speak on Their Fight From UFC on Fuel TV 6
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 11.11.2012



MMAjunkie reports that UFC on Fuel TV 6 main event winner Cung Le was watching the fight between Tiequan Zhang and Jon Tuck on the undercard and thought it could've been Fight of the Night.

Le commented: "That fight was pretty awesome. That could have been 'Fight of the Night,' also. I was actually backstage watching it, and I was like, 'Wow. These guys are going back and forth.' It's hard for me because I'm a fan, too, and at the same time, (Don) House is grabbing my hands and saying, 'Turn your hands.' I was watching the screen because I was enjoying their fight."

Tuck won a strong decision over Zhang. After the fight was over, Zhang told MMAjunkie through an interpreter: "I just feel like I didn't have the right strategy for this fight. I think Jon Tuck was a pretty competitive fighter for me. I should be more excited (about fighting in China), but I just feel like I didn't have the right strategy for tonight." Zhang also stated, "The fight in Macau will definitely help. It is an historical moment. I feel like it is definitely going to help to promote MMA's development into China. I think the China market has a lot more potential."

Regarding the win and fighting in China, Tuck stated: "It was just an honor for me to fight in China to come from a small island and fight with a lot of heart. I knew that Tiequan was going to bring a lot to me, as well. I knew we were going to have an awesome fight. I didn't expect anything less. It was a nice ground battle between the both of us. I know that he wanted to keep it exciting for the fans for the Chinese to enjoy it, and so did I."
