Cung Le hit Rich Franklin right on the button to earn himself a KO victory in the main event

Cung Le did not disappoint in the UFC’s Chinese debut, knocking veteran Rich Franklin out cold in the first round with a well placed punch to the button. Other winners included Thiago Silva winning by third round submission and Dong Hyum Kim, Takanori Gomi, Jon Tuck, and Takeya Mizugaki all winning by decision. Many did not see the fights live as they aired at 7:15am ET, but the world’s most populated country finally got a UFC event. Cung Le was very happy after the event saying “I’m just grateful, I don’t know what to say. Lucky punch.” in the cage after one of the most visceral knockouts of the year.
