Back-to-back losses to Charlie Brenneman and Martin Kampmann had Rick Story looking like a possible cut from the UFC's roster heading into his bout with Brock Jardine at UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida.
Instead, Story dominated Jardine, scoring a victory by decision behind his strong takedowns and precise striking. Story is now 14-5 in his career and 7-3 inside the Octagon.
"I was focused on my game plan," Story said. "This is a stepping stone (for me). I am always trying to get the finish, but (Jardine) is a tough wrestler."
Story, however, added, "Coming out with a victory is the best I could ask for." Prior to his two consecutive defeats, "The Horror" had topped the likes of Thiago Alves, Johny Hendricks and Dustin Hazelett.
