Rising heavyweight contender Chris Daukaus scored yet another knockout finish earlier tonight (Sat., Sept. 25, 2021) at UFC 266 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the former police officer battered Shamil Abdurakhimov with a nasty second-round TKO (punches and elbows).
Abdurakhimov seemed to be getting comfortable in the first round as he landed some good counter shots from the outside. That was until Daukaus snuck inside with a crisp left hook that dropped the Russian with about 30 seconds left in the round. Abdurakhimov survived, but Daukaus caught him again in the second with a monstrous right hand. Daukaus swarmed a badly hurt Abdurakhimov and finished the fight with nasty elbows.
