Luke Rockhold may have needed more than one round to do it, but the middleweight contender did finish his rival Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 55.
The two came out aggressively to begin the fight, but neither man was able to land a telling shot, except for an accidental headbutt which cut Bisping above the left eye.
In round two, it wasn’t long before Rockhold had Bisping in a world of trouble thanks to a head kick and follow up punches. As Bisping attempted to recover, he found himself ensnared in a guillotine choke and was forced to tap out.
Here are the results for the event, which took place in Sydney, Australia.
