Matt Brown defeated Mike Swick by knockout in the second round of their main card bout at UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle on Saturday night.
Brown landed a land hand, followed by a right cross, that sent Swick collapsing to the ground at 2:31 of the second frame.
Brown pressed his opponent early on, getting Swick to the ground. He attempted a choke, but Swick was able to pull out and began to work in guard.
Brown then caught his opponent in a triangle, and Swick worked to prevent the submission by putting his feet over Brown’s neck. Swick escaped and the two transitioned back to the feet before the round’s time expired.
Round 2 started soon before Brown and Swick began engaging in a clinch. Swick landed some knees, while Brown landed elbows. But it was Brown’s left hand that sent Swick falling backwards, ending the fight by knockout.
Brown improves his record to 16-11, and is the owner of a four-fight winning streak, undefeated in 2012. Swick loses his first fight since making his return to the UFC from illness.
