Mike Thomas Brown did tonight at WEC 39 what no other man has been able to do, he finished Leonard “Bad Boy” Garcia. Not only did he finish him, he demolished him in the first round of a five round featherweight title fight.
Garcia was coming off a very impressive win over Jens Pulver and his only three losses have come by decision to fighters like Cole Miller and a war that people still talk about that made the cover of Sport’s Illustrated with Roger Huerta. Garcia was a slight underdog coming into WEC 39 but probably no one expected the fight to end so quickly. He’s known for his toughness, he’s known for slugging it out, being able to take punishment, and to keep going.
