Luke Rockhold predicted a first-round knockout. He was right, only Michael Bisping was the one on the upside.

After a 10-year journey, Bisping is finally a UFC champion, and on just 17 days notice.

Bisping dominated the entire round, leading with the jabs and never letting Rockhold get a chance. Bisping dropped the former champ easily with the stoppage coming at 3:36 in the first round.

When asked if maybe he came into the fight a little to confident Rockhold said, "Yeah, a bit."

Bisping is the first UFC champ from the United Kingdom.
