What a finish.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweights trying to bounce back from knockout losses earned the UFC 185 "Prelims" main event billing on FX last night (Sat., March 14, 2015) in Dallas, Texas as Ross Pearson and Sam Stout threw down in an exciting affair.
In a fight that many believed could be a dark horse candidate for "Fight of the Night," the end result was arguably the night's most highlight-reel worthy finish.
After a thrilling first round that saw back-and-forth exchanges, the Brit unleashed a vicious left hook that knocked Stout out cold in under two minutes into the second round. As "Hands of Stone" stiffened up and fell to the mat, Pearson landed a brutal follow-up that really sealed the deal in violent fashion.
The win for the former The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) winner was his fifth (technical) knockout finish of his UFC career -- which is tied for third all-time in UFC lightweight history -- and capped off seven straight finishes for the "Prelims" (recap here).
