Former Ultimate Fighter winner Jonathan Brookins managed to continue his impressive UFC career by knocking out Vagner Rocha in the first round of their UFC on Fuel TV bout. Rocha looked very capable of winning the fight in the stand-up early landing good left hands and looking a bit quicker to pull the trigger and avoid danger than Brookins.

It was when Vagner attempted to get a takedown that the fight turned. Rocha tried to get the body clinch and take the fight to the ground but Brookins reversed, ended up on top and quickly unloaded with a series of shots that knocked Rocha out.

It was a violent ending that improved Brookins to 2-1 in his official UFC bouts, with the lone loss coming to a title contender in Erik Koch. It will be interesting to see how the UFC wants to handle Brookins going forward.
