Former WEC/UFC welterweight Brock Larson suffered the first knockout of his career over the weekend at Extreme Challenge 188 after maintaining his consciousness for over decade including more than thirty-five fights. Not only was the defeat notable in nature from a historical perspective but also based on length and location, as Larson lost in less than ten seconds to the dismay of his fellow Minnesotans at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
Larson’s record dropped to 33-6 with the stoppage. He had gone 4-1 prior to the performance in his post-Octagon appearances including a quartet of finishes.
Pulling off the upset was Shark Fights veteran Eric Davila who has won four straight including a submission over Pete Spratt last September. He also holds wins over TUF alumni Richie Hightower and Lodune Sincaid.
Two other competitors with ties to the Ultimate Fighter also found success at EC 188, Paul Bradley and Tom Speer. The former scored his third consecutive victory via tap-out after locking in an Arm-Triangle Choke in the opening round of action against Eddie Larrea, while the latter made it four-in-a-row in the win column after outpointing well-rounded opponent Indalecio Tat Romero.
