Knockout! Darren Stewart finishes Eric Spicely with ground and pound

Check out video footage of Stewart kicking off the UFC Liverpool main card with violence.


It’s been a tough couple of years in the UFC for middleweight Darren “The Dentist” Stewart. His first fight and win in the UFC was overturned due to a headbutt, and then Stewart suffered three losses in a row. But the UK fighter managed to snap that streak at UFC Liverpool, knocking out Eric Spicely at 1:47 of round two in a back and forth affair.

Stewart was a bit tentative in round one, but a jab in round two landed flush dropping Spicely to the canvas where Stewart finished him with ground and pound. Afterwards he broke down in tears as his first win in five fights overwhelmed him.

The fight marks Spicely’s third UFC loss in a row, dropping him to 2-4 with the promotion and 10-4 overall. Stewart advances to 8-3 MMA and 1-3-1 with the UFC. For a full play by play breakdown of the fights from UFC Liverpool, click here.
