Tony Ferguson won the 13th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" with an impressive knockout of Ramsey Nijem in Las Vegas on Saturday night. In addition to winning a six-figure contract with the UFC, Ferguson also won the Knockout of the Night, earning a $40,000 bonus.

Nijem came out swinging in the first round, but Ferguson quickly answered with a takedown. After Ferguson wasn't able to do much with the ground position, Nijem rolled through to get back to his feet. The two traded punches until Ferguson caught Nijem with a right then a left hook. Nijem fell to the ground, and Ferguson finished him off with one more strike. The fight was stopped at 3:54.

Ferguson was surprised as he watched the replay of the round with UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

"I don't remember even throwing that," he said.

Ferguson played the role of the villain this season, drawing the ire of castmates on a drunken evening when he said several remarks that his teammates felt crossed the line.

"I learned about myself in there," Ferguson said about living in the house. "I brought a lot of demons in with me there, but from here on out I want to do the right thing."
