Nik Lentz defeated Eiji Mitsuoka by TKO (strikes) at 3:45 of round one

Nik Lentz made the most of his debut at 145 pounds, completely overwhelming Eiji Mitsuoka to get a first-round TKO stoppage in the opening bout of UFC 150. Mitsuoka had no answer for Lentz's wrestling attack and was thrown around like a potato sack multiple times in the fight. Once Lentz got back control and sunk in hooks, he opened up with a barrage of strikes to the head that Mitsuoka eventually succumbed to.

Lentz opened with some knees to the body in the clinch and locked up a front headlock. He stuffed a shot from Mitsuoka, took his back, and slammed him to the mat. Mitsuoka popped up but went back down again. Lentz landed a nice right and got another takedown. Lentz passed to side briefly but Mitsuoka got up in a scramble. Lentz took it right back down and got full back mount. He landed a ton of punches to the head that didn't seem to be hurting Mitsuoka all that much, but he was stuck and the referee was forced to step in.
