Donald Brashear(notes) told us last month that you always remember your first one. He was talking about his first NHL fight against Bob Probert, but the same can likely be applied to his first MMA fight which took place last night at Ringside MMA 11 in Quebec City.
After two opponents dropped out of the fight due to injury, Mathieu Bergeron was finally chosen in a bout featuring two fighters making their MMA debuts. While having over 20 lbs. on Brashear, the former NHL enforcer made quick work of Bergeron by winning the fight in 21 seconds via TKO.

We imagine that's not the first fight Brashear's been in where the guy immediately turtled, except unlike in the NHL, he was allowed to continue punching him in the head.
Brashear signed a three-fight deal with Ringside MMA and while it's not a binding contract, after the fight he said he would do it again.
