Austraian Tai Tuivasa needed less than three minutes to secure his second UFC win in his home country, as he dispatched of Cyril Asker with ease.
The undefeated heavyweight consistently utilised brutal step in elbows as well as heavy punches, and well put together combinations. Asker demonstrated his rock solid chin, but in the end, it was all too much.
Asker was stunned a few times, before being backed up against the cage, and cracked time and time again with shots. In the end, it weren’t a strike that sent “Silverback” down, it was just a push. Due to the massive amount of damage he had taken, the bloodied Frenchman headed face first to the canvas, and the referee had seen enough.
“Bam Bam” moves to 9-0 with the victory, with two UFC wins. Asker now drops to 9-4, holding a UFC record of 2-3.

Pick: Mark Hunt Tai Tuivasa (8-0) vs Cyril Asker (9-3) This bout has been tailor-made for a Tuivasa knockout. Asker is a decent grappler but has been knocked out by Jared Cannonier who isn’t the biggest light heavyweight. Tuivasa is impressively quick at heavyweight and packs a mighty wallop which spells disaster for Asker.
