WEC 52 Results: Eric Koch Knocks Out Francisco Rivera With Head Kick

Many fans were unsure why the fight between Eric Koch and Francisco Rivera had made the main card over some other very solid fights on the undercard. It didn't take long for Eric Koch to make a statement that he wants to stick around on main cards for a long time.

After a brief feeling out period between the fighters Koch uncorked a head kick that dropped Rivera. A few exclamation point hammerfists by Koch and the fight was all over. This is almost guaranteed to win the Knockout of the Night bonus.

Koch is now 11-1 in his career and 3-1 in the WEC with his only loss coming to fellow WEC 52 fighter Chad Mendes.
