Daniel Omielanczuk didn’t need much time to welcome the UFC and Chris De La Rocha to Scotland, as he stunned the newcomer and earned a first round finish Saturday at UFC Fight Night 72.
The 32-year-old from Poland snapped a two-fight losing skid with the impressive performance. Omielanczuk (17-5-1) had dropped decisions to Anthony Hamilton and Jared Rosholt coming in.
“I am feeling great,” he said. “This is my first time here. It came perfectly.
“The game plan was to enter and straight go to fighting.”
With the stoppage victory, Omielanczuk is now 2-2 with a pair of finishes in the Octagon. He knocked out Nandor Guelmino in 2013 in his debut.
