Veteran UFC Lightweight Cody McKenzie gave UFC newcomer Marcus LeVesseur a painful lesson in fighting at the top levels of the sport. LeVesseur, a multi-time division 3 NCAA national wrestling champion who'd somehow racked up a 21-5 record over an eight year pro career (including a 3 year break) without ever fighting in the big show.
UFC on Fuel TV 3 Results: Cody McKenzie defeats Marcus LeVesseur via submission (guillotine choke) at 3:05 of the first round.
LeVesseur came out aggressive, dominating McKenzie with slamming take downs and hard punches from the top as well as on the feet. But taking down McKenzie, something of a one-trick-pony for his mastery of the guillotine or Kenzie-tine as he calls it -- is a risky proposition as LeVesseur learned to his regret.
McKenzie got his arm under LeVesseur's neck and from there quickly got the finish.
