UFC 116: Brendan Schaub TKOs Chris Tuchscherer

A few hours before the Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin heavyweight title fight, a couple of their training partners squared off, with Carwin's winning easily.

Brendan Schaub, who works out with Carwin, dominated Chris Tuchscherer, who works out with Lesnar Saturday at UFC 116.

The fight was quick and violent: Schaub knocked Tuchscherer down less than a minute into the first round, pounced on him, and pounded on him until referee Herb Dean stepped in and called a stop to it, just 1:07 into the first round.

It was a very good win for Schaub, who became well known to UFC fans during the 10th season of The Ultimate Fighter. Schaub's only loss is to Roy Nelson at last year's Ultimate Fighter Finale, and he's now 6-1, with every one of his fight ending in a first-round knockout.

And it was a very bad loss for Tuchscherer, who has lost two of his three fights in the Octagon and probably won't be back in the UFC.
