Two firey heavyweights worked their way through The Ultimate Fighter 30 and squared off at UFC Vegas 59. On one hand, was ex-Houston Texans practice squad player, turned MMA fighter Zac Pauga. On the other is Mohammed Usman, whose brother of UFC welterweight champion Kamaru.

Round one started off with a running kick right to Usman, but the blow missed. The first round was a back and forth affair, with both men throwing big blows and Pauga landing the majority of significant strikes. Pauga became a bit of a scofflaw, tagging Usman after the round ended by accident, which caused Usman to be not too happy.

The second started off much more in control for both men, despite the intensity. Usman, however, would not be denied, tagging Pauga with a left hook, knocking Pauga out almost instantly.
