Yair Rodriguez TKOs BJ Penn 24 seconds into the 2nd round.
Dan Hardy says: No surprises there. I think it was a big ask for him to take on such a dangerous kid.
Someone like Barao would be better.
Hard to watch a legend take that punishment.
Cub Swanson says: Congrats @panteraufc you deserve big things 🙂
BJ will always be the Champ to me
Yair’s on a 6 fight win streak. In third place for the longest active win streak at feathweight.
Guys ahead of Rodriguez in the rankings and potential future opponents in months and years to come include:
Joe Rogan watching the fight live on his fight companion podcast.

Much respect to Lauzon admitting he thought he lost even tho he got the win!
