Manny Gamburyan knocks out Mike Brown at WEC 48

Manny Gamburyan made a strong case for the coveted $65,000 Knockout of the Night honors at WEC 48 with a hook from hell that left former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown in an unconscious heap in the very first round.

The pair exchanged heavy right hands midway through the opening round, and when it was all said and done it was Brown who came out on the short end of the stick as he sagged to the canvas where a few well placed punches from “Manvil the Anvil” spread the icing on the cake and forced the referee to call a halt to the contest via knockout.

The pummeling took place during WEC 48 this evening from the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California.

Also on the main portion of the card was Shane Roller, who turned in an impressive showing while submitting an overwhelmed Anthony Njokuani via guillotine choke in the first round, and Scott Jorgensen, who out-gritted Antonio Banuelos in a three round, knock down, drag out brawl via unanimous decison (29-28 on all three scorecards).

    Sucks for Brown but great for Manvil, looks like he will be facing Faber soon.

    Why the hell would he be facing Faber!? Manny just KO’d the dude Faber couldn’t beat. Manny will/should be fighting Aldo for the title in his next match. WAR Gamburyan.

    Yeah, Manny earned a shot, but neither he nor NOBODY is going to stop Aldo doing what Aldo does. I hope we don’t get stuck with Faber/ Brown III, but if we do, I imagine Faber finally wrecks him- was Brown ever really that good…?.

    I’d probably take Faber over anyone *but* Aldo at this point, given his impressive recent win over Assunciao (Faber/ Manny is inevitable and will be fun), but we’re in a bind re: good title fights given Aldo’s out-sized ability to kick ass. He is the #1 P4P fighter right now IMHO.

    Hard shot. Looks like MG has been workinig on his boxing and foot work a little. Good for him. I’m all for a Faber/Gamby fight.

  • JBAR says:

    MG is good and I wouldn’t mind seeing him fight Faber. I just did not care for Manny one way or the other until his cheap shot at the glove touch a while back now I root against him and would like to see anyone beat him.
