Nobody expected the heavyweight shootout between Gabriel Gonzaga (pictured) and Shawn Jordan to go the distance at UFC 166, but most believe it would be Jordan raising his hand in victory when it ended early.
However, Gonzaga proved his detractors – in this case, the Gambling Gods – wrong by posting a first round TKO win on Saturday night. “Napao” unleashed a nasty right hook that sent Jordan to the canvas. After greeting his opponent with a few extra bombs on the ground, Gonzaga was circling the cage celebrating his W.
The official time on the stoppage was at just 1:33.
Unfortunately for Gonzaga, John Dodson scored the extra $60,000 bonus check for taking “Knockout of the Night” after blasting Darrell Montague.
UFC 166 took place inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
