Roll Tide, indeed.

Former Alabama linebacker Eryk Anders made his highly anticipated debut at UFC on FOX 25 on Saturday in Long Island, and he didn't disappoint.

Fighting on just nine days' notice for an injured Alessio di Chirico, Anders blasted middleweight veteran Rafael Natal with brick-like left hands, putting the Brazilian away less than three minutes into Round 1.

Anders was a member of the Crimson Tide squad that won the 2009 BCS National Championship, and now he can add a successful UFC debut to his list of accolades. He now has an 8-0 as a professional MMA fighter.
