KJ Noons was able to keep his roll in MMA going with a dominant win over Jorge Gurgel. The two men met in the cage ready to exchange strikes and the much more technical Noons got the better of the first round by using a variety of strikes from leg kicks to body shots to jabs to powerful hooks.
The two were exchanging strikes as the first round ended and Noons landed a hard hook just after the bell. It wasn't an illegal punch as it came "in the action" meaning it was during the exchange, not a malicious post-round punch. Gurgel was badly hurt by the punch though and in the second round he was quickly dropped again. Noons followed up with some punches and as the ref moved in to end the fight Noons landed an illegal knee. The knee came after the stoppage though so the TKO holds up.
