In the process of doing so, DiSciullo entered as the sole member of team McGregor in the semi-finals, as the overall record stood at 7-1 in favor of team Chandler.
DiSciullo attempted to keep the bantamweight match-up away from the ground by negating Azure’s takedown.
However, that proved problematic as Azure began to punish DiSciullo with some heavy blows.
Although Azure did suffer a cut on his head, he was sensing a stoppage only for DiSciullo to make it to the end of the round.
But that is when DiSciullo responded with a remarkable second round. An uppercut and a right hand sent Azure staggering backwards.
This was followed up by another right hand as Azure failed in a takedown attempt. Thereafter, DiSciullo connected with a leg kick and a right hand that sent Azure to the floor.
Conor McGregor gets his first win on TUF and celebrates…👀
Fair to say he enjoyed that.

And in the follow up, the referee stopped the bout. After the result, McGregor and Chandler exchanged a few verbals as the first semi-final line-up was revealed.
