“This victory actually means a lot to me being my first win and all. I'm not gonna to lie I was disappointed with the way it ended”, Garza told SR.
Alexander was apparently extremely dehydrated after that round, and began vomiting between rounds. Garza was declared winner by TKO corner stoppage at the end of round one. While not the most glorious victory considering the ending, Garza is nevertheless pleased with his performance.
“I usually fight at 185 and cut down to 175 to fight Brandon," Garza told SR. "I cut a total of 30 pounds and honestly wanted to get the knockout and put on a show for the crowd. Stuff happens though and he started throwing up so they called it. Time to focus on my next fight and get a winning streak going!”

“It was amazing. I was looking for the knockout when I decided to fight and I was really hoping the opportunity to finish with a kick would present itself,” Payne told SR. “I intend to take this as far as I can and show the true potential for kicks in MMA when someone puts enough time into training them properly.”
