The TKO occured 2:23 seconds into the first round when Faber tried to catch Brown with a side reverse elbow to the head. The elbow glanced off Brown’s shoulder and Brown delivered a punch right on the button on Faber’s chin. Faber fell to the canvas and tried to defend himself into recovery, but Brown was relentless with bunches of punches.
Faber, a longtime fan favorite due to his exciting and creative style of fighting, held the WEC flyweight belt since March 2006.
