Sam Stout entered his TUF Nations Finale bout versus K.J. Noons having never been knocked out during his 11-year, 30-fight MMA career.

Unfortunately for the 29-year-old from London, Ontario, he was no match for Noons’ striking ability on this night, resulting in a first-round knockout, followed by an impromptu grappling session with referee Philippe Chartier.

At one point, Stout actually had Chartier in a guillotine choke, albeit a lose one, but Chartier was able to tap out in time and save himself from injury—although it does drop his unofficial MMA record to 0-1.

Here’s a look at the final seconds of Sam Stout’s knockout loss against K.J. Noons, as well as his subsequent headlock on referee Philippe Chartier:
