41-year-old veteran Mike Pyle was hoping to score another win in front of his hometown fans, but Dominican mauler Alex Garcia made sure that didn’t happen.
After the two traded some decent strikes, Garcia leveled his foe with a crushing overhand right. The punch came during an exchange and once the punch landed, “Quicksand” was out. The jiu jitsu specialist crumbled in a heap and his head smacked off the canvas, prompting referee Dan Miragliotta to come to his rescue and Garcia to calmly walk away. The end came officially at the 3:34 mark of the first.
