BRISBANE, Australia – Soa Palelei didn’t wait around to find out whether he could hang with Pat Barry on the feet. Instead the Australian fighter parlayed an early takedown into a knockout victory, stopping Barry at 2:09 of the first round.

The heavyweight bout was part of the main card of today’s UFC Fight Night 33 event at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia. It aired on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on FOX Sports 2 and MMAjunkie.

Palelei planted Barry on his back early on in the fight, eating a knee strike on his way in but quickly moving from half-guard to full mount. From there, a series of short punches was all it took to make Barry go limp on the mat, which forced referee Steve Percival to step in.

Barry (8-7 MMA, 5-7 UFC) has lost two straight in the UFC. Palelei (20-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has now won 10 straight.
