UFC 129: 20-second KO for the 'Janitor'

You might find it difficult to find silence amid 55,000 people in the same place. But they must have all gone to the bathroom during the introductions for the Vladimir Matyushenko-Jason Brilz light heavyweight bout inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto for UFC 129, because that place sounded empty.

That all changed 15 seconds into the bout when Matyushenko dropped Brilz with a straight right/left hook combination. Matyushenko followed up with three hammer fists, and referee Dan Miragliotta stepped in to end the fight in 20 seconds on Saturday night.

Not too shabby for a 40-year-old fighter who goes by the nickname "The Janitor."
