AUSTRALIA'S Kyle Noke made a stunning start to his UFC career as he impressively stopped Josh Bryant in the second round at The Pearls at The Palms in Las Vegas, USA.
The two fighters were team-mates on season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter, and Noke was able to put a close friendship to one side in order to score a second-round victory and grab a contract with the UFC.
"We worked real hard at the game plan,” said middleweight Noke, now 17-4-1 in his mixed martial arts career.
