NEWARK - Tomasz Drwal attempted a right front kick, his first of the bout. His left foot slipped on the canvas. And just like that, his night was over.

Rousimar Palhares (20-2) quickly pounced on Drwal and secured the heel hook for the submission victory 45 seconds into the middleweight bout at UFC 111 inside the Prudential Center.

Drwal (17-3) was in intense pain and lay in the Octagon for a few minutes. He limped out of the cage and back to the locker room.

All that time training for Drwal and he loses quickly because he slipped. Things happen that quickly in the Octagon.WElcome
