Vick KOs Cruickshank; TUF Live, Episode 2 recap

TEAM FABER'S DARON CRUICKSHANK (10-2) TEAM CRUZ'S JAMES VICK (4-0)
Unlike the debut episode's one-round fights, tonight's fight is a two-round affair, with one sudden-victory frame available in case of a draw. Another new feature is debuted, as "Keys to Victory" are revealed for both fighters before they square off. Vick enjoys a six-and-a-half reach advantage according to the tale of the tape.
Round 1 - Referee Herb Dean starts the action. Cruickshank does a good job of moving in and out in the early going while Vick looks to work from the center of the cage. Vick looks a little tentative, but Cruickshank isn't exactly cashing in during the early going. The pace picks up as the round wears on, and a confident Cruickshank looks to shoot in. Unfortunately, he walks right into a huge right knee, and he's out cold. Incredible finish, and the gym goes crazy.
James Vick def. Daron Cruickshank via knockout (knee) - Round 1, 2:16.
