UFC 144 Results: Issei Tamura Knocks Out Tiequan Zhang

via Esther Lin

Issei Tamura defeats Tiequan Zhang at :32 in the second round via knockout.

The first round commenced with Tiequan Zhang landed early but Tamura responded with his own power shots. It's obvious that Tamura has legitimate power as he drops Zhang and quickly dove into the guard with a flying punch. Tamura sat in Zhang's half guard and landed hammer fists and short elbows to the head. Zhang had absolutely no game off his back and no ability to get back up. Herb Dean stood the fighters off and Tamura quickly shot for a takedown. Zhang attempted a guillotine but as Tamura completed the takedown he ended in half guard. Zhang attacked with an arm-triangle from the bottom but he was unable to complete them. The round ended with Tamura landing punches from the top.

Zhang opened the second round with leg kick and Tamura responded by coming forward with a wild combination. Zhang landed several leg kicks. Tamura landed a massive right hand that dropped Zhang. He followed up with punches before Herb Dean could stop the fight. Huge win for Issei Tamura.
