LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Former Newberry College wrestler Corey Anderson was crowned the light heavyweight champion of The Ultimate Fighter 19 with a 1:01 technical knockout of Matt Van Buren at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Sunday.


With his victory, Anderson is awarded a six-figure contract by UFC, which was presented by UFC CEO Dana White after the fight. He also won a Harley-Davidson motorcycle as part of the promotion of the show.


He ran his professional MMA record to 5-0 with the win, in which Van Buren was barely able to respond to Anderson’s quick flurry of punches.


Anderson had a 14-6 record in his one season at Newberry before completing his collegiate career in 2011-12 as the Division III national runner-up at heavyweight with a 46-5 record at Wisconsin-Whitewater.
