Kristian was defeated by Michael Bisping in the first round by knockout.
Kris wasn't an MMA fighter, if you put him in the ring with someone who knows what they're doing, like Ed, the clock gets cleaned out. I'm not saying anything bad about Mike, just that the two guys were both playing the same game and if you're fighting someone with power on the ground then you'll get destroyed.
