Abus Magomedov arrived in the UFC in a big way Saturday.
The finishing sequence began with a brutal front kick that snapped Stoltzfus’ head back. From there, Magomedov pursued and landed a right uppercut followed by a left hook. Stoltzfus collapsed to the canvas and was met by three hellacious right hands, which bloodied him and put him unconscious.

As for Stoltzfus, he returns to the loss column after a July win over Dwight Grant.
