UFC Fight Night 111 results: Russell Doane halts 4-fight skid, TKOs Kwan Ho Kwak

Russell Doane’s aggressiveness initially looked like it might work against him, but the relentless pressure ultimately led to a first-round win over Kwan Ho Kwak.

Doane (15-7 MMA, 3-4 UFC) used a quick outburst of offense to force a TKO win over Ho Kwak (9-2 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at the 4:09 mark of the opening round.

The bantamweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 111 event at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass.

Doane was the aggressor early in the fight, but that aggression didn’t initially lead to much against a patient Kwak, who slowed him with powerful low kicks and counter-punches. However, the Hawaiian found his opening after landing a knee from the clinch and following it up with punches, kicks and some fight-ending ground and pound.

As Kwak crumpled to the mat, Doane continued to unload before the ref waved off the fight.

Doane, who won his first two UFC fights before suffering a four-fight skid, gets back in the win column for the first time since 2014. Kwak, who went 9-0 to earn a UFC contract, has now lost back-to-back fights since joining MMA’s top promotion.
