Watch Top UFC Heavyweight prospect Jared ‘Tha Killa Gorilla’ Cannonier absolutely maul Cyril Asker at 2:44 of the first round at UFC Fight Night 86. The UFCs Heavyweight division has been thin at best the last several years and it will be interesting to see how the future of Cannonier shapes up in his next few fights.
From where I am sitting it looks that the last few shots were totally unnecessary and the fight should probably been stopped after the blow that knocked Cyril Asker to the canvas.
