Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Daukaus was able to land some good shots early, but Blaydes seemed to settle in on the feet and scored a few punches of his own to bloody Daukaus’ eye. To much surprise, Blaydes didn’t even attempt one takedown in the first round, which trickled into the second as well.

In Round 2, the two heavyweights came out firing and met in the middle of the cage. Blaydes landed a counter right hand that crushed Daukaus and sent him crashing to the canvas. “Razor” jumped in for thunderous ground-and-pound before Daukaus went limp and the referee stepped in.
