In the second UFC 158 bout, T.J. Dillashaw knocked out Issei Tamura early in the second round.
The first round wasn't all that exciting, but the second round made up for it. T.J. Dillashaw came out and blasted Issea Tamura into unconsciousness early in round two of their UFC 158 featherweight fight with a huge knee and some ground and pound. The finish came at 26 seconds of the second stanza.
The first minute of the bout was pretty slow while the fighters looked to establish range. Dillashaw ducked a shot and got the takedown. Tamura got up after a scramble, but ate a knee to the belly. They grinded away on the cage for an extended period of time while Dillashaw landed short knees and body shots. The ref finally separated them with a minutes to go. The last minute just saw the fighters miss a lot.
Dillashaw came out in the second and dropped Tamura with a left knee as he was leaning. He jumped him on the ground and pounded him out in brutal fashion.
The win moved Dillashaw (7-1) to 3-1 in the UFC, while Tamura (7-4) to 1-2 in the UFC and he might be looking for a new job soon.
