Chad Mendes and Myles Jury among the six UFC on Fox 7 fighters scoring knockouts on prelims

UFC on Fox 7 started out with a knockout, followed by a knockout and then a knockout. Before fans at the fights in San Jose had eaten lunch, the competition was already fierce for the Knockout of the Night.

It started with Yoel Romero, an Olympic wrestler who knocked out Clifford Starks with a flying knee 1:32 in the first round.

Anthony Njokuani followed Romero's knockout with a pasting of Roger Bowling. Njokuani ruined Bowling's UFC debut with a second-round KO.

T.J. Dillashaw kept the KO-party going with a knockout of Hugo Viana at 4:22 of the first round. Jorge Masvidal won a bloody technical decision over Tim Means and then the knockout fun started all over again.

Joseph Benavidez dominated Darren Uyenoyama for two rounds, then finished up with a TKO with just 10 seconds left in the second round.

Myles Jury stayed undefeated with a knockout of Ramsey Nijem at 1:02 in the second round. Francis Carmont and Lorenz Larkin broke the KO streak with a decision. The judges saw it 29-28 on all three cards for Carmont, thought Larkin controlled the bout and had stellar takedown defense.

Chad Mendes finished off the knockout-filled preliminary card with a KO of Darren Elkins in 1:08. It's his third straight win since losing to Jose Aldo in his first title shot. After the fight, he asked for another one.
