The lone Brazilian on the UFC Fight Night 25 card, Vagner Rocha, submitted Cody McKenzie with a second-round rear-naked choke.
The result eases the setback of having lost his June promotional debut.
The big news of the night was the punishment Jake Ellenberger dished out on Jake Shields, who thus loses his second main event in the two fights since moving to the UFC. The knockout just fifty three seconds into the bout.
