UFC on FOX 6 results: Ricardo Lamas knocks out Erik Koch with hail of elbows

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The list of featherweight contenders grew on Saturday night, with Ricardo Lamas crafting a statement win with a hail of elbow strikes leading to a knockout over Erik Koch.

The ferocious finish of the UFC on FOX 6 bout came at 2:32 of the second round.

The two fought an evenly contested first round, but Lamas seized momentum early in the second taking top position off a scramble. Working from inside Koch's guard, he cut his opponent open with an elbow, and then continued that beating with a series of power shots from the top that forced referee John McCarthy to step in.

It was a performance worthy of his "Bully" nickname.

"If i get on top of you, you better watch out," he said. "I'm not letting you up until you're bloody or you're knocked out."

Lamas is a perfect 4-0 since making the move to 145 pounds. Three of those wins are by finish, including one over fellow contender Cub Swanson. He's now 13-2 overall.

Koch, once considered the No. 1 contender in the division, fell to 13-2. He was fighting for the first time in 16 months after an injury and subsequent rehabilitation.
