Lyoto Machida made sure he remained right in the thick of the middleweight title shot mix at UFC Fight Night 58, as the contender needed less than 70 seconds to finish CB Dollaway.
Machida sent Dollaway reeling to the cage in agony with a liver kick early into the main event, and then prompted the ref’s intervention with follow up punches. The bout lasted just over 60 seconds.
In the co-headliner, Renan Barao got back on track by tapping out the rugged Mitch Gagnon with a third round, arm-triangle-choke.
