The finishes kept piling in earlier tonight (Fri., Dec. 1, 2017) at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale inside Monte Carlo’s Park Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, as middleweight Ryan Janes added to the mix with an incredible come-from-behind knockout victory over Andrew Holbrook.
Despite eating a plethora of punches throughout the first two rounds, Janes was resilient in the third. He started to catch a staggering Sanchez and poured the pressure on with a nasty left hook followed by a hard right hand. Sanchez stumbled back into the cage and Janes unloaded until the referee stepped in for the TKO stoppage.

With this performance, Janes ends a two-fight losing skid and notches down his first knockout victory since 2010. Sanchez is a tough dude at 185 pounds and Janes was able to stomach all of the damage. Let’s see if the submission artist can build off of this finish and win a few more fights next year.
