UFC on FOX 3 Results: Lavar Johnson TKOs Pat Barry in Round 1

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Two of the UFC’s big boys kicked off the FOX telecast with a heavyweight explosion. Many in attendance at the IZOD Center booed some of the undercard bouts, notably Michael Johnson’s win over Tony Ferguson, and were hungry for action by the time the main card was aired over national TV.

Lavar Johnson and Pat Barry provided a jolt to those here and watching over the airwaves. The two heavyweights traded punches and Barry actually nearly finished the fight looking for a kimura.

Once back on the feet, Johnson backed Barry against the cage and unloaded a series of unanswered blows before a cross to the top of Barry’s head planted “HD” to the canvas and earned a thrilling TKO victory at 4:38 of the first round. It’s the immediate contender for “Fight of the Night,” and the battle Fox executives lusted for since the curtain jerker last November.
