With just 32-seconds on the clock, Henry Cejudo may have rattled off one of the most impressive pair of back-to-back victories in MMA history as the flyweight champion defended his belt against TJ Dillashaw.
Starting at an electric pace, Cejudo fired off a head kick that grazed his challenger before a punch behind the ear floored the bantamweight champion looking to become the latest in a line of double champions.
With Dillashaw stunned, Cejudo swarmed on the mat and a flurry of punches ensured that the flyweight champion would keep his belt and potentially save his division from the chopping block.
With Cejudo defeating the 135 lbs champion, the former Olympic champion has now defeated Demetrious Johnson and Dillashaw in his last two bouts.
