This is the UFC 247 live blog for Juan Adams vs. Justin Tafa, a heavyweight bout on Saturday’s fight card at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Adams returns after a first-round TKO loss to Greg Hardy that marked his second straight octagon defeat, while Tafa is trying to rebound from a loss to Yorgan De Castro in his UFC debut.

Check out the UFC 247 live blog below.

Round 1: Adams with fingers outstretched, waving them at Tafa, who whips the leg off the bat. Kicks exchanged, and Adams doubles up with a few punches. Tafa hits the legs twice and resets. Adams goes with the same. He tries to advance forward and takes a short shot and briefly makes him take a knee. Tafa nails the legs again, and then follows up with a right hand that staggers Adams. Tafa follows up with a right hook that lands flush, and then an uppercut that takes Adams’ legs from him. Adams still shoots for the legs, and Tafa slams his head a few more times. Adams lolls to the mat, clearly hurt, and the referee intervenes to stop the action.

Official result: Justin Tafa def. Juan Adams via TKO (strikes) - Round 1, 1:59
