Matt Mitrione (pictured) promised he’d make Derrick Lewis pay for calling him out, and Mitrione didn’t take long to keep his word.
Mitrione quickly disposed of Lewis on Friday night with a right hook and a barrage of punches on the canvas.
The official stoppage of the knockout came at 41 seconds in the opening round.
Mitrione said at the post-fight press conference that he would have loved to face Alistair Overeem next had he also won. But Overeem got TKO’d by Ben Rothwell, so forget that.
UFC Fight Night 50 took place inside Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut.
