UFC 163 results recap: Anthony Perosh vs. Vinny Magalhaes

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Perosh put Vinny down in only 14 seconds. The TKO was very impressive, but "The Hippo" has very little time continue toto make his mark in the Octagon.

In the feature bout for the FX prelims of UFC 163, Light Heavyweight Anthony Perosh (14-7) shocked viewers with a 14 second KO of Vinny Magalhaes (10-7, 1 NC). Coming back from a devastating KO of his own, Perosh improved to 4-2 in just most recent UFC run. After winning in his re-debut last year, Magalhaes has now lost two consecutive fights.

The fighters met in the center of the Octagon right after the opening bell. In the first exchange, Perosh caught Vinny coming in with a well-timed straight right that dropped the BJJ ace. Perosh followed up with some ground strikes that put Magalhaes out cold and Steve Mazagatti stepped in to stop the fight.

What was the high point of the fight?

The whole fight.

Where do they go from here?

At 41 years old with a limited arsenal, Perosh won't be looking at contendership any time ever. Best case scenario for him is to pick up a few more paydays against the low and mid-tier 205 lbers before retirement.

Magalhaes said it best in the lead-up to the event, if he lost to Perosh he deserves to be cut. While the UFC could probably justify keeping him on the roster, I wouldn't expect them to. Many are reading into Vinny leaving his gloves on the canvas as a sign of retirement, but he hasn't made a definitive statement either way yet.

Watch it now, later, or never?

Go watch it now. It's short, sweet, surprising, and a great performance from The Hippo. Get on it.
