UFC Copenhagen: Cannonier Stops Hermansson
Jared Cannonier made his claim for a spot in the upper echelon of the UFC’s middleweight rankings, as he stopped Jack Hermansson in the main event of UFC Copenhagen.
Hermansson came out of the gate with leg kicks but his first takedown attempt early on was stuffed. Hermansson soon suplexed Cannonier and attempted a rear-naked choke, but Cannonier was able to shake him off and quickly get up after another takedown. Cannonier managed to get his fair share of strikes in the second half of the opening frame as Hermansson slowed down.
And that led to the events of the second round. Cannonier quickly dropped Hermansson with an uppercut before swarming him with a barrage of strikes on the ground until the referee stepped in.
