Dan Hooker had seen enough decisions.

On a night where the first nine bouts went to the scorecards, Hooker changed the conversation with a smashing left hook that dropped James Vick and led to a definitive first-round knockout to cap off their lightweight bout at UFC on ESPN 4 in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday.

After a brief feeling-out process where Vick actually scored first blood with a straight punch that briefly had Hooker stumbling, “The Hangman” found his range and tagged Vick with a pair of stiff left hands before finishing with ground-and-pound at the 2:33 mark of round one.

He is now 5-1 since making the move up to lightweight. Afterwards, Hooker (18-8), who hails from New Zealand, called for a spot on the upcoming UFC 243 event that is scheduled to take place in Australia on Oct. 5.

Vick (13-4) has lost three straight fights.
