Khamzat Chimaev lived up to the hype by knocking out Gerald Meerschaert with the first punch he threw at UFC Vegas 11.
Relive the highlights and fight-ending sequences from the UFC Vegas 11 main card below.
Khamzat Chimaev def. Gerald Meerschaert by KO via punch (0:17, R1)
Chimaev sent Meerschaert on a one-way trip to the Negative Zone with the first punch he threw.
Johnny Walker (no. 11) def. Ryan Spann (no. 12) by TKO via strikes (2:43, R1)
This was wild for as long as it lasted. Walker stumbled Spann and "Superman" returned by dropping Walker. It was ultimately a failed takedown attempt from Spann that gave Walker the opening for fight-ending Travis Browne elbows.
Mackenzie Dern (no. 15) def. Randa Markos by submission via arm bar (3:44, R1)
Markos made the inexplicable decision to jump into the guard of a dry Dern. The Canadian avoided triangles and armbars long enough to eat big hammerfists from the bottom of mount and then subbed.
Kevin Holland def. Darren Stewart by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
Holland and Stewart threw down. Holland seemed edge things in rounds one and two but it was a one-sided performance for Stewart in the third that nearly took a sure thing from Holland.
