UFC 158 results: Rick Story finishes Quinn Mulhern early

USA TODAY Sports

In the third bout at UFC 158, Rick Story picked up a first round knockout victory over Quinn Mulhern.

Rick Story had his back to the wall and he passed the test with flying colors. His UFC 158 welterweight bout against the debuting Quinn Mulhern was expected to be a slugfest and both men delivered that, but Story's pressure and a punch to eye of Mulhern led to the finish. Story beat him down and earned the stoppage at 3:05 of round one.

As usual, it's Story who was pressing the action early. He landed a couple of bombs against the cage that led Mulhern to unsuccessfully look for a takedown. Mulhern landed a big left, but Story responded with his own. Mulhern's counters were starting to land a little more.

Story clipped Mulhern in the eye with a punch though, and Quinn didn't know what to do. Story landed a couple more huge shots that dropped Mulhern, and that was all she wrote.

Story (15-6) moved to 8-4 in the UFC overall with the win, and picked up his first finish in two and a half years. Mulhern (18-3) had a three-fight win streak stopped with the loss.
