Mike Brown's first title defense as the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champion was a successful one, as he defeated Leonard Garcia by first-round submission and retained his title Sunday night at WEC 39.
Brown floored Garcia with a brutal right hand just seconds into the first round, and Garcia was never able to recover. Brown pounced and dominated Garcia on the ground, and although Garcia showed a lot of heart just by staying in the fight, he had no chance: Brown eventually got Garcia to tap with an arm triangle choke at 1:57 of the first round.
