The Flying Knee MMA:
One of the biggest upsets on the UFC on FOX 6 card came in the opening fight on the main card as Ricardo Lamas cut Erik Koch open in the second round and secured a TKO moments later. The win was Lamasâ€™s fourth straight at featherweight and will likely put him in contention for a title shot against the winner between Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo.Â
Koch sent out a tweetÂ of his injured eye this morning along with a caption that said â€śDamage from last night. Will not let that **** happen again lol.â€ť.
Koch was believed to be the next contender at featherweight, having already beenÂ scheduledÂ to face Aldo twice in the last year but injuries to both competitors kept the bout from happening. Now it appears Koch will have to work his way back up the ladder before he may consider a title shot.
Watch the highlight from Lamas vs. Koch here.
