It’s so hard to describe exactly what happened last night at UFC 173. We saw Robbie Lawler finish Jake Ellenberger, we saw Daniel Cormier dominate and put Dan Henderson to sleep with a rear-naked choke, but the most surprising of all is that we saw T.J. Dillashaw, who was a huge underdog, not only dominate Renan Barao, but finish him.
With the win we have a new UFC Bantamweight champion and Renan Barao’s nine year unbeaten streak came to an end.
Following the madness, we had a post-fight presser with UFC President Dana White and some of the card’s big winners including Dillashaw, Lawler, Cormier, Michael Chiesa, James Krause, Chris Holdsworth, Takeya Mizugaki, and Tony Ferguson. Barao would not make the press conference as he was taken to the hospital following the fight.
