Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski picked Devin Cole apart Saturday night, scoring an opening round TKO victory in the main event of the World Series of Fighting 1. The card took place from Las Vegas and aired on NBC Sports Network.
Arlovski used his quick hands to keep Cole at a distance, dropping him and following up with a pair of unneeded strikes.
In the co-main event, another ex-UFC fighter, Anthony Johnson, withstood an eye poke and dropped D.J. Linderman.
