Ireland's Charlie Ward suffered a devastating first round TKO defeat at UFC Belfast this evening.

His bout with Razak Alhassan lasted just under a minute but was incredibly bruising.

At one stage, his SBG team mate Conor McGregor was on his feet as he rallied but he soon succumbed to his opponents huge shots.

Alhassan now has a perfect 8-0 UFC record and Ward knows what it will take to make it at the highest level.
