UFC Fight Night 49 took place at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The main card aired on FOX Sports 1 with the prelims on FOX Sports 2 and UFC Fight Pass. Rafael dos Anjos (22-7) picked up the biggest win of his career, stopping former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (21-4) with a TKO in the first round.  The bout was stopped at 2:31 after dos Anjos caught Henderson with a punch while he attempted to recover from a leaping knee.

The audience protested the stoppage, and while Henderson claimed he was clearheaded after taking the strikes replays proved the former champ was clearly in trouble.

Dos Anjos had this to say about the win, 

“I’m always the underdog, but now it’s my time!”
