TUF Nations Finale results: Ryan Jimmo, KJ Noons pick up 1st round KOs on the prelims

Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

On a preliminary card filled to the brim with decisions, Ryan Jimmo and K.J. Noons provided a pair of highlight reel knockouts.

UFC light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo had to deal with a change of opponent following Steve Bosse's sudden retirement, but he made short work of newcomer Sean O'Connell on the prelims of the TUF Nations Finale in Quebec City.

Towards the end of the opening round, O'Connell tried closing the distance as he came forward with a short left hand, but Jimmo took advantage and clobbered him with a flush right hand to the jaw, sending O'Connell to the canvas. A few short punches followed on the ground and forced referee Dan Miragliotta to step in and stop the fight.

Jimmo (19-3) moves to 3-2 in his UFC career, and after a long stretch of fights (from 2009-2011) in Alberta-based Maximum Fighting Championships without a finish, he now has two in the UFC, with the other coming in 7 seconds vs. Anthony Perosh. O'Connell (15-5) sees his winning streak end at 6, and all of his losses have ended in a stoppage.

Meanwhile, lightweight K.J. Noons became the first man to KO Sam Stout, taking just 30 seconds to finish the Canadian. Noons clocked Stout with a ferocious right hand, dropping him on his back before landing 2-3 more crisp shots to close the show.

Noons (13-7) has won consecutive bouts for the first time since his six-fight win streak from 2007-2010. Stout (20-10-1) is now 3-4 in his last 7, and his future in the UFC could be in jeopardy.
