Are you ready for the main event? The Jersey crowd is, because it promises great potential for someone (Ryan Bader) getting KTFO’d and leaving on a stretcher – especially since Anthony “Rumble” Johnson is the other guy in the cage throwing the leather. So how does this one play out?
Twelve seconds in and Bader shoots for a takedown from about a mile away. Johnson sprawls easily, but when the number two light-heavyweight contender spins around to Bader’s back, the TUF winner tries to grab a kimura. It’s fruitless. Rumble pulls free, methodically secures mount, and drops the kind of bombs that a sure to erase memories.
Referee Keith Peterson jumps in, giving Rumble the win via KO, at 1:26 of Round 1.
