Ross Pearson (17-8 MMA, 9-5 UFC) ended his fight with Sam Stout (20-11-1 MMA, 8-10 UFC) in clinical fashion at UFC 185 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas with a devastating left hook in the second round.

In the exchange, both MMA fighters were winding up with hooks, but it was the Englishman who connected on the chin of his Canadian opponent. Stout fell flat to the canvas and in a daze lifted his unprotected head to try and make sense of what happened. Before the ref could intervene, Pearson unloaded a right hand punch before the fight was stopped.

In the main event, lightweight champion Anthony Pettis was dethroned by Rafael dos Anjos. The Brazilian dominated the fight from start to finish, causing quite an upset by winning so easily against the highly-rated Pettis. In the women's strawweight division, Carla Esparza lost her belt when she was dominated by Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who won via second round stoppage.
