Arman Tsarukyan lived up to his billing earlier tonight (Sat., Sept. 18, 2021) at UFC Vegas 37 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the massive favorite easily defeated lightweight counterpart Christos Giagos via first-round TKO (punches).
Giagos was able to gain top control in the early going but that was short lived. Tsarukyan returned to his feet and clipped Giagos with a crisp left hook. Giagos stumbled back into the cage and Tsarukyan unloaded all hell until Giagos went limp and the referee waved the fight off.

Tsarukyan continues to improve and now holds a 4-1 record inside of the Octagon. His only loss was to current lightweight contender Islam Makhachev. If things go as planned the 24-year-old Tsarukyan should land a top 10 opponent after this performance. Next year might be a huge campaign for the Russian talent if he keeps this up.
