UFC on FX Results: Pat Barry Knocks Out Christian Morecraft

In a tremendous come-from-behind victory, Pat Barry knocked out Christian Morecraft on Friday night's UFC on FX card.

It was a left hook that knocked Morecraft down, and Barry quickly jumped on him and finished him off with a few more punches. Herb Dean was a little late stepping in to stop the fight; Morecraft was definitely out, just 3 minutes, 38 seconds into the first round.

The knockout punch was sudden and unexpected, as Morecraft had controlled most of the fight prior to that. But Barry has always been a lethal kickboxer, and it was no surprise that once he connected with a hard shot, there was nothing left for Morecraft to do.

Morecraft caught a Barry kick and took him down just 20 seconds into the first round, and he quickly moved into mount on the ground. But Barry showed off some tremendous leg strength in standing up with Morecraft still on top of him and then shrugging Morecraft off.



After a brief exchange on the feet Morecraft took Barry down again and appeared to have an arm bar sunk in, but Barry did an excellent job of pulling free and getting back to his feet, where he landed that fight-changing punch.

The win improves Barry's career record to 7-4. Morecraft falls to 7-3.
