Ludwig gets payback, stops Morgan

Strikeforce billed the show 'Payback', and the title was true to its word when Colorado fighter Duane Ludwig stopped Team Bison veteran Sammy Morgan just 2:01 into the first round. Morgan had scored a knockout of Ludwig in April of 2005 in just 52 seconds.

A body shot followed up with a hook to the head by Ludwig dropped Morgan (19-12) early in the round. Ludwig (17-8) then pounced on the grounded Morgan and forced him to tap with a barrage of punches and ending with a powerful straight right hand to the body.

The Ultimate Fighter 2 contestant, Morgan has dropped four straight fights since signing a contract with EliteXC. Strikeforce and EliteXC have a working partnership and Morgan has fought under both promotional banners in the past year.
