ATLANTA – For the second straight fight, Cesar Arzamendia was the victim of a knockout punch.

Arzamendia (7-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC), a veteran of “The Ultimate Fighter Latin America 2,” came out aggressive before being stopped cold by the right hands of Damien Brown (16-9 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

The lightweight bout opened up the preliminary card of today’s UFC 201 event at Philips Arena in Atlanta. It streamed on UFC Fight Pass ahead of additional prelims on FS2 and a main card on pay-per-view.

The fight was over at the 2:27 mark of the first round when the referee finally intervened on an unconscious Arzamendia, who took far too many shots after Brown came over his left hook and dropped him with two well-timed straight rights.

It was an emotional turnaround for Australia’s Brown, who was outpointed by Alan Patrick in his octagon debut in March. Arzamendia, who was stopped by TKO in the quarterfinals of “TUF: Latin America 2,” has yet to get a win in the UFC after Marco Polo Reyes knocked him out in the first round of his debut this past November.

Arzamendia came out swinging, looking to land a jumping roundhouse and jumping knee in the opening exchanges of the fight. Brown, however, stayed in the pocket and returned fire with his right hand, landing a straight and uppercut counter that forced his opponent to reset.

It was in the transition where Brown landed his first fight-changing blow, dropping Arzamendia with a straight right. The Paraguay native kept his wits about him and retorted with a heel-hook attempt that forced Brown to scramble. But when he returned to his feet, it was clear the cobwebs hadn’t completely cleared from his head.

Moments later, Brown was firing punches on his downed opponent, signaling a concussive end.

  • Damien Brown def. Cesar Arzamendia via knockout (punches) – Round 1, 2:27

There will be much at stake for Rose Namajunas tonight (Sat., July 30, 2016) at UFC 201 when she takes on undefeated Polish sensation Karolina Kowalkiewicz from Atlanta, Georgia. Not only will “Thug” put her three-fight win streak on the line, but she can essentially lock down a title shot with a victory.

If she can do that, Namajunas will soon find herself across the cage from current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. While Namajunas fought for the 115-pound title once before, losing to Carla Esparza back in 2014, she has never faced someone quite like Jedrzejczyk. As a champion who stands undefeated at 12-0 and has racked off four-straight dominant championship victories, Jedrzejczyk is truly in a class of her own.

However, out of every Strawweight on the UFC roster, Namajunas believes she’s the most ready to challenge the champion and test her skills in every department.

“For me, it’s like the truth don’t get me mad. It’s like who is ready for her,” said Namajunas in a recent interview with FOX Sports. “Obviously, me having this fight right now is not just because I want to stay active, I do want the experience, but I’m right (expletive) there.”

“I don’t think anybody else is ready for her the way that I am.”

With recent victories over Paige VanZant and Tecia Torres, “Thug” has certainly done more than the rest of the division’s available contenders. She has gained massive experience since her first title loss and has shown the capability to win a fight on the feet or the ground.

“At this point in my life, this is the only thing that matters to me,” added Namajunas. “I have the most passion ever. So skill and passion has never been something that’s a problem, it’s just experience. I feel that’s always been something I could use more of.”

“Joanna says who’s ready for her — after this fight, I will say I will be ready to fight for the belt that same night on July 30.”

UFC 201 will be headlined by a Welterweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and top contender Tyron Woodley.

UFC 201 emanates from Atlanta with a welterweight title tilt atop the card.

UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler welcomes his latest challenger, Tyron Woodley, in the main event. The two standouts have trained together, and now they will fight against one another. American Top Team will keep the belt in its camp, but will it go back to HQ in Coconut Creek, Florida, or Woodley‘s affiliate gym in Missouri?

The co-main event looks to be a strawweight title eliminator as contenders Rose Namajunas and Karolina Kowalkiewicz square off in a three-round affair.

Nine other bouts line the card with action, and Bleacher Report will be here all evening to break down the action for you. The first bout of the evening is at 7 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass. Televised prelims begin at 8 p.m ET on Fox Sports 2, and the pay-pay-view main card begins at 10 p.m. ET.

Ian McCall is leaving UFC 201 without an official bout, but he’ll get paid like a winning fighter.

On Thursday McCall (13-5-1 MMA, 2-3-1 UFC) was pulled from tonight’s UFC 201 event after opponent Justin Scoggins (11-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) struggled during a weight cut and was deemed unable to fight.

Their bout, which was slated for the pay-per-view main card at Philips Arena in Atlanta, was ultimately scrapped altogether. McCall was initially told he’d be paid his fight purse (“show” money) if he made weight and was available as a backup in case one of the card’s other flyweight fights fell apart.

Although McCall didn’t get a fill-in opportunity, he’ll get both his fight purse and his “win” bonus, a UFC official confirmed with MMAjunkie. Additionally, Scoggins will be paid nothing, the official said.

The amount of McCall’s contracted purse wasn’t disclosed (official payout amounts will be available from the Georgia State Athletic and Entertainment Commission on Monday). However, for his most recent bout – a January 2015 decision loss to John Lineker – earned a fight purse of $16,000. His win bonus would’ve paid an additional $16,000.

McCall, who’s ranked No. 7 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA flyweight rankings, told MMAjunkie earlier this week that the bout cancellation was frustrating but also the result of the sport’s weight-cutting culture (see the video above).

“As much as I like Justin, I want to be a (expletive) and say something, but whatever,” he said. “Weight-cutting isn’t good for you, and if you don’t do it right – and he’s young, so he’s probably stupid about it. But he’s a good fighter, so hopefully this won’t tarnish his name too much.

“It’s weird that I feel bad for him, but this weight-cutting (expletive) is horrible for you. I’m just getting it done because I’m getting paid.”
