UFC 139 Results: Ryan Bader Knocks Out Jason Brilz In The First

via mmaweekly.com

Ryan Bader knocked out Jason Brilz at 1:17 in the first round at UFC 139. Ryan Bader came into the fight on a two fight losing streak with the losses to Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz. Jason Brilz entered the fight on his own two fight losing streak with those losses to Vladimir Matyushenko and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

Coming into the fight there were questions about Bader's mental toughness following his two losses. He was the clear favorite against Tito Ortiz yet was upset with a guillotine choke. It was Ortiz' first win in almost half a decade. Tonight he showed absolutely no signs of those losses when he put a beatdown on Jason Brilz. Landing a lead uppercut numerous times, the fight came to an end when Bader landed a straight right behind Brilz' ear. Several punches later and the fight was called. 

Bader gets back in the winner's circle with this win and moves to 13-2 in his career. Jason Brilz drops his third straight and is now 3-4 in the UFC. He is 18-5-1 overall.
