UFC 140: Igor Pokrajac Knocks Out Krzysztof Soszynski

 Igor Pokrajac Knocks Out Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 140.The UFC 140 fight between Igor Pokrajac and Krzysztof Soszynski wasn't much of a fight at all.

Pokrajac needed just 35 seconds to knock out Soszynski, in a stunning display of striking: Pokrajac battered Soszynski with several hard punches and put him to the ground, and all Soszynski could do was cover up. Several seconds after the fight ended the cameras caught Soszynski still appearing to be out of it.

Pokrajac, a Croatian who trains with Mirko Cro Cop, is now on a two-fight winning streak and has looked tremendous in the stand-up department in both of his wins. The 32-year-old Pokrajac isn't among the elite light heavyweights in the sport, but he is an exciting fighter who usually puts on an entertaining show. The UFC can always find spots for guys like that.


As for Soszynski, the loss snaps a two-fight winning streak of his own, and showed that for as much power as he has on the ground, he reacts badly when he gets hit. This was a rough showing for Soszynski.

We'll find out later on Saturday night if Pokrajac's performance was good enough to earn the Knockout of the Night bonus. That would be a first for him, and make this by far the biggest payday of his fighting career.
