UFC 163 results: Anthony Perosh details stunning 14-second Vinny Magalhaes knockout in Brazil

Esther Lin of MMAFighting.com

Anthony Perosh silenced HSBC Arena with his ridiculous knockout victory of Vinny Magalhaes to close out the UFC 163 FX "Prelims" under card.

Anthony Perosh was hoping to rebound from an embarrassing seven-second knockout loss suffered at UFC 149 courtesy of Ryan Jimmo more than one year ago.

And it took just 14 seconds for him to erase that memory, putting Vinny Magalhaes to sleep at UFC 163 tonight (Aug. 3, 2013) at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and silencing the crowd.

The "Hippo" spoke with ringside announcer Brian Stann immediately after the fight and credited his boxing coach for his knockout punch:

"I asked for the fight because we were both coming off one loss and we're both Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelts. What better way than to fight in Brazil? I wanted the fight, but everyone underestimated my jiu-jitsu, but today I showed my stand up. Thanks to my boxing coach Steve Rudy — that's all we've done is just don't stand in front of him. Move left, move right and set up the right. That's all we've been doing for three months."

Perosh -- a +375 underdog heading into the fight -- has struggled inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) Octagon since making his debut at UFC 110.

He made it look easy tonight.
