It was a quick night for Neil Ward (3-3) last night at UK Fighting Championship 4 in Preston, England. The Rush FA fighter needed just 24 seconds to finish Carl Burton (2-1) with a knee in the main event.
The bantamweight was on a 1-3 run, albeit against tough opposition and has never been stopped in the distance. This victory marks his first finish since his pro debut a little over three years ago and he will now look to build upon this impressive victory.
It was also a successful night at UKFC 4 for amateur Irish MMA fighters as they posted a 3-1 winning rate on the night.
