Jack Slack on How to End a King's Reign

Jack Slack: How TJ Dillashaw Killed the King
By: Jack Slack, FIGHTLAND
"At UFC 173 we were treated to a beautiful upset. TJ Dillashaw peppered Renan Barao with strikes from all angles and Barao just never found an answer.
 
"The event was a grand one. We saw Katsunori Kikuno continue his attempts at career seppuku, while getting soundly drubbed by a much improved Tony Ferguson. We saw Mike Chisea look all kinds of desperate on the feet but incredible when the fight hit the mat. We enjoyed Daniel Cormier channeling his “Black Fedor” as he rag dolled Dan Henderson, and we saw Robbie Lawler tune up his fists against the tough, but overmatched Jake Ellenberger.
 
"Rather than desperately appeal to Katsunori Kikuno's team to return him to the stance which he used to get the better of Eddie Alvarez on the feet (do yourself a favor and watch that fight, Kikuno was incredible once), or focus on Robbie Lawler or Daniel Cormier's showcase bouts, today I would like to focus on TJ Dillashaw, and how he Killed the King."
