The UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann card got off to a frustrating start as an exciting Lightweight bout between Lightweights Abel Trujillo and Roger Bowling ended in a disappointing No Contest when Trujillo knocked out Bowling with an illegal knee to the face late in the second round.
The two had traded a lot of punches and had numerous exciting grappling exchanges in the nearly two full rounds of action. It was a very even fight with Bowling maybe having a slight advantage. Late in the second, Bowling was threatening with a rear naked choke attempt when Trujillo fought back to his feet and quickly dropped Bowling with a combination. It all went wrong as Trujillo went for the finish and, after landing a legal knee to the crouching Bowling's check, landed a second knee to the chin. The cage side doctor declared Bowling had been knocked out and Ref. Rob Hinds stopped the fight at 4:57 of Round 2.
