MMA Junkie / David Banks-USA TODAY Sports Erik Koch took on Ricardo Llamas in a Featherweight bout on the undercard of UFC on Fox 6 at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday night. After a fairly quiet first round, Lamas registered a takedown on Koch in the second. Once Lamas got on top of Koch and started hammering away with elbows, he turned Koch’s face into ground chuck, scoring a TKO and ruining the Saturday night dinners of millions of TV viewers. After enough blood poured from Koch, the referee waived off the fight, giving Lamas a huge victory and perhaps saving Koch’s life. Before the fight, all tweeters could text about was Erik Koch’s orange glow from his fake bake bronzing.
