Dakota Cochrane took advantage of a short-notice opportunity and took out a former UFC champion with his bare hands.

Cochrane (31-12 MMA) stopped ex-UFC welterweight champ Johny Hendricks (18-8 MMA) with a second-round knockout at Friday’s inaugural World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation event. Cochrane stepped up to fight Hendricks earlier in the week after Brennan Ward pulled out of the main event due to a contract dispute. Cochrane-Hendricks was the night’s co-main event.

WBKFF’s inaugural event took place at Casper Events Center in Casper, Wyo. The card streamed via online pay-per-view.

In the light heavyweight headliner, Chris Leben stopped fellow UFC veteran Phil Baroni in just 79 seconds with a TKO.

The “Fight of the Night” went to middleweights Julian Lane and Joey Angelo. Lane overcame a broken left hand to take a split decision. Each fighter won a custom Ford Mustang for the post-fight honor.
