Here we are...the first main event of the night. The veteran Matt Hughes takes on the controversial Josh Koscheck. I can see Koscheck being too good and too fast for Matt Hughes now though. Hughes is not getting any younger. Take nothing away from the hall of famer though, he's looking in great shape as he enters the Octagon...

Matt Hughes vs. Josh Koscheck

 

Round 1:

Hughes and Koscheck circle each other...Hughes getting the better of Koscheck with the stand up. The round grinds down into what seems like a dominant striking display by Hughes AND KOSCHECK DROPS HIM! Hughes is in all kinds of trouble as he tries to scramble his consciousness together...but a succession of hammerfists to the side of Hughes head sends him to sleep....4 minutes and 59 seconds into the first round!

 

Result:

Josh Koscheck defeats Matt Hughes via 1st round KO.
