Hubbard lost to Vinc Pichel via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN 29 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The scorecards here are somewhat deceiving because Hubbard appeared to win Round 1. Other than that, Pichel was in control. "Thud" was beaten to the punch early and often following the opening frame. It's not particularly promising that Hubbard landed two successful takedowns in each of the final two rounds and clearly lost both of them. Hubbard has had all sorts of difficulty stopping his opposition the past few years, making it imperative he keep a strong pace for the duration of his bouts. The 29-year-old Colorado native has now alternated losses and wins in his first seven UFC bouts, meaning he should be in line for a victory his next time out.

ANALYSIS
It ended up being a fairly easy victory for Hubbard after he struggled the first five minutes. One would think a large portion of the turnaround in this fight was the fact was the result of Bush's poor cardio due to the fact he accepted the bout less than a week ago, but Hubbard deserves credit for getting his grappling going over the course of the final ten minutes and keeping Bush pinned to the mat. Hubbard hadn't had a single successful takedown in his previous three fights prior to Saturday. The 29-year-old Colorado native and Elevation Fight Team product has now alternated losses and wins in his first half dozen bouts with the company.
