Sherdog.com wrote the following about the bout :
In welterweight action, Alan Jouban took home an impressive third-round stoppage victory over former Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce talent Chris Spang.
Jouban charged forward hard and heavy from the get-go, rifling off cracking punches and kicks to the head and body and pounding away with elbows from the clinch. Spang remained composed, however, covering up well and attacking as his foe faded to end the frame.
Nevertheless, Jouban appeared to catch his wind several times throughout the contest and launched several hard flurries throughout the second and third rounds, the last of which rocked Spang against the cage and forced referee John McCarthy to wave off the bout and save “The Kiss” from further punishment.
After winning four straight bouts to start his career, the Swede has now dropped 3 of 4 bouts. The 25 year old’s overall record now stands at 5 wins and 3 losses. Jouban on the other hand goes to an impressive 7 wins and 1 loss, and adds the biggest win of his career at RFA 9 over Spang.
