Henry Cejudo defeated T.J. Dillashaw on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 143 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Cejudo won with a TKO just 32 seconds into the bout.

Cejudo defended his flyweight belt in this win. He also stopped Dillashaw — who is the bantamweight champion — from being the fourth double champion in UFC history.

In addition, this is the fifth-quickest finish in UFC Championship history. This was also the first UFC event on ESPN+.

With the win, the 31-year-old Phoenix, Arizona native improved to 14-2 in his MMA career. The former Olympian has six wins by knockout. His other eight wins have come by decision.

He has now won his last four fights. This was his first TKO (Punches) win since defeating Wilson Reis at UFC 215 on Sept. 9, 2017.

This was also Cejudo’s quickest fight in his career. His previous fastest win came in his first bout, as he won in 1:25 over Michael Poe at WFF – Pascua Yaqui Fights 4 on March 2, 2013 by TKO (Submission to Punches).

The 32-year-old Angels Camp, California native fell to 16-4 in his MMA career with a loss. This is just his second knockout loss in his career.

This loss snapped a four-bout win streak. This was his first TKO (Punches) loss since a UFC – The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale against John Dodson at 1:54 in the first round.

It was also his first loss since a split decision loss to Dominick Cruz on Jan. 17, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 81.

Like Cejudo, this was Dillashaw’s quickest bout in his career.
