Mike Pyle was trying to finishing Rick Story in the third round at UFC 160, but it ended going to the judges. The split-decision win went to Pyle in a close fight.
“I don’t think anything went wrong,” said Pyle to MMA Fighting. “He hit me good in the first round and I wasn’t all there. It was a close one. I wasn’t happy with my performance.”
Pyle said he didn’t get back to normal until the middle of the second round. With four consecutive wins since January 2012, Pyle wants a Top 10 name.
Story is 2-4 in his latest outings. The welterweight was once considered a top contender following six wins before struggling as of late.
