Tai Tuivasa has never seen the second round of a fight, and that didn’t change on Saturday.
The Australian heavyweight wowed the audience at the Qudos Bank Arena in his hometown at UFC Sydney on Saturday, shutting down Rashad Coulter with a flying knee on the event’s preliminary card. Tuivasa’s finish came at the 4:45 mark of Round 1.
Now 6-0 with all of his wins coming by first-round knockout, the 24-year-old Tuivasa set up his explosive finish with a leg kick that wobbled Coulter. Tuivasa followed up with a knee to Coulter’s chin that left him collapsed by the cage.
