Quoteworthy:

"I wasn't concerned. I stayed calm and relaxed. He Has to break my arm if I'm (going to) tap. It was no problem for me there. It's good to keep my face intact for once. My last three or four fights were wars, and I got a couple new scars from that, but it's good to win an easy fight like that."

Heavyweight contender Stefan Struve looks back on his first round TKO victory over Internet hero Sean McCorkle. Fight fans may have been unhappy with the placement of the bout in the co-main event, due largely to "Big Sexy" and his big mouth, but undoubtedly were happy with the result -- a first round finish for the lanky but likable Dutchman. With a big win at a major event like UFC 124, did "Skyscraper" just catapult himself into the upper echelon of the 265-pound weight class?
