He may be known as “beautiful” but Gloucester, England welterweight fighter Che ‘Beautiful’ Mills returns to the cage at UFC 145 this weekend with MMA fans knowing there is more to this man than just looks. Roll the clock back to November 5th 2011 and UFC 138 where Mills took on and destroyed San Diego brawler Chris Cope in just under 40 seconds of the first round of his UFC debut.

April will be a month that quiets the spoiled MMA fans who have been whining vicariously through twitter and the forums about not having jam-packed weeks of Mixed Martial Arts goodness.

The knockout, it’s a fan favorite and something every fighter loves to do yet doesn’t want to be on the wrong side of it as the same time. A knockout is a violent thing of beauty for one fighter but an ungraceful disappointment for the one lying on the canvas wondering what just happened. Lucky for them there is that little thing called replay and they’ll be seeing it over and over again.
