Josh Koscheck got back on the winning trail following a previous knockout loss at the hands of Paulo Thiago as he made quick work of the returning Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg during UFC 103 in Dallas, Texas.
This one was over just as fast as it began. A little over a minute into the bout Koscheck connected with a big right hand, dropping Trigg to the canvas where he finished him off at the 1:25 mark with a flurry of well placed punches.
In the twenty-six professional fights and seven losses on Hermes Franca‘s record coming into this evening’s bout with Tyson Griffin, only once had the heavy handed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt been stopped with strikes, making Griffin’s stoppage victory tonight that much more impressive.
After a feeling out process in round one, the pair turned it up a notch in the second round, both looking to connect with powerful shots, but it was Griffin that connected first. A big right hand sent Franca crashing to the canvas where a handful of hard punches left the referee with no other option but to call a halt to the beating.
