Stanislav Nedkov Smashes Luiz Cane In Amazing Come Back At UFC 134

For most of the brief duration of Stanislav Nedkov's UFC debut against Luiz Cane, Cane was putting a beating on the smaller Nedkov. Nedkov had repeatedly thrown only one punch -- a looping overhand right that Cane walked through again and again. But he went to the well once too often and Nedkov hurt him bad toward the end of the round. Once Nedkov had Cane hurt, he poured it on, following the stunned Cane down and forcing referee Mario Yamasaki to stop the fight. 

UFC 134 results: Stanislav Nedkov defeats Luiz Cane via knockout at 4:13 of Round 1.

Nedkov, a national wrestling champion in his native Bulgaria brought an 11-0 record to the UFC. He is now 12-0 and 1-0 in the UFC. He might want to consider moving down to the middleweight division because he looked small and outmatched against Luiz Cane. Right up until he knocked him out that is.
