Chesterton High grad Eddie Wineland picked up another victory in the UFC octagon with a knockout of Girgorii Popov at UFC 238 in Chicago on Saturday.

The 2002 CHS grad cut Popov over the eye with solid right hands, but added a series of rights that knocked the Russian down. Another right from Wineland caused referee Kevin MacDonald to step in and call the fight at 4:47 of round two.

“When they’re hurt and you know they’re hurt, stand them back up and finish them,” Wineland told UFC News after the fight.

Wineland is now 24-13-1 all-time after handing Popov just his second career loss (13-2).
