UFC on Fuel 4 Results: T.J. Dillashaw Finishes Vaughan Lee

Kyle Terada, US PRESSWIRE

T.J. Dillashaw is just seven fights into his mixed martial arts career, but he's starting to look like a fighter who's finding his footing.

The Team Alpha Male competitor looked confident on Wednesday in aggressively pursuing and defeating British veteran Vaughan Lee. Dillashaw won via rear-naked choke at 2:33 of the first round at UFC on Fuel 4 in San Jose, Calif.



After an early feeling-out period in which Lee came out swinging, Dillashaw scored a big slam. Lee got back up, but couldn't quite shake off his opponent's pursuit. Dillashaw got the back of a standing Lee and, remaining in the standing position, managed to get his hooks in and apply the choke for the victory.

"I just took his back," said Dillashaw (6-1). "I was calm, I waiting for my openings. He's a super tough guy, I just waited for the right opportunity, I was patient."

Dillashaw has won both of his fights since losing to John Dodson in The Ultimate Fighter 14 finals. Lee dropped to 12-8-1.
