UFC 114 Live Blog: Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow Round-by-Round Updates

LAS VEGAS -- This is the UFC 114 live blog for Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow, a heavyweight bout on tonight's pay-per-view card from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Duffee makes his first UFC appearance since setting the fastest UFC knockout record last August at UFC 102 in his UFC debut.

The live blog is below.

Round 1: Duffee plants and drops Russow with a right uppercut. He's very light on his feet for such a big man. Very quick hands, too. He doubles up on the jab, scoring with both. Russow tries to drop for a takedown. Duffee has no problem eluding him. Big, red welt on the side of Russow's face already. Russow isn't able to get anything going. Duffee is stalking him around, firing off his hands. He hasn't been able to connect with too many big bombs, but looks primed to do so. And there it is, an uppercut that knocked Russow back two steps. Duffee is cautious though, and doesn't really fire up. Still, big first round for Duffe, 10-9.

Round 2: Russow is now aborting his takedowns, not fully committing to them as though Duffee's power is making him pull back. Duffee snaps his head back with another right uppercut, which seems to be his favorite punch of the night. Russow's strategy seems to be waiting for Duffee to get overly excited and catch him with the takedown when he's moving in, but Duffee is fighting very disciplined. Because of it, there's a lot of circling with little action, and the crowd is getting restless. But Duffee is landing enough to scare Russow off, and MMA Fighting gives him round two, 10-9.

Round 3: See either of the above two rounds. Duffee connecting from the outside, Russow waiting, but not committing. And out of nowhere, Russow catches him with an overhand right. Duffee was falling like a tree, and Russow got him a second time before Duffee went down. KO.

Winner: Mike Russow via KO
, Rd. 3 (2:32)
