This time, Soa Palelei didn't spend enough time in the Octagon to gas out.
Coming off a legendarily bad UFC 164 bout against Nikita Krylov in which both fought beyond the point of exhaustion, the Australian fighter known as "The Hulk" made short work of Pat Barry in a heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane.

The 36-year-old wasted no time scoring a takedown. From there, he simply overpowered Barry and opened up a frightening ground-and-pound beatdown. The bout was waved off at the 2:09 mark of the first round.
After the fight, Barry got up, walked several feet, and then fell face-first to the mat. He left the cage under his own power.
"This was one for Australia, whoo!" an excited Palelei told the crowd.
Palelei improved to 20-4 with his 16th career knockout. He's won 10 straight fights. Barry (15-6) lost for the third time in his past four bouts.
