Nedkov was making his UFC debut and was an underdog against the more experienced Cane, and in the early going it appeared that Cane was getting the upper hand with his striking. But after looking stiff in the early going, Nedkov began to look more comfortable with his punching combinations, and eventually a right-left combination hurt Cane and had him running away.
From there Nedkov gave chase, landed a few more punches and eventually knocked Cane down and finished him with more punches on the ground. If anything the referee's stoppage was slow; Nedkov clearly had Cane out.
Nedkov's MMA record now improves to 12-0, and there's no question that he deserves to be considered one of the rising stars of the light heavyweight division. He's a 29-year-old with some big fights ahead of him.
Cane has now lost three of his last four, and all three losses were by first-round TKO. Cane is talented, but he needs to regroup and get his career back on track.
