UFC Columbus in Tweets: Fighters react to Curtis Blaydes thunderous stoppage of Chris Daukaus

Curtis Blaydes showed Columbus, Ohio, he doesn’t just need his wrestling to win a big fight with a second-round stoppage of Chris Daukaus at UFC Columbus.

Blaydes caught Daukaus flush with a right hand and pounced on his downed opponent for the finish 17 seconds into the second round of the ESPN+ headliner on Saturday at Nationwide Arena. Blaydes, known as a smothering wrestler, didn’t shoot one shot during the fight.

In the co-headliner, Alexa Grasso made her case for a flyweight title shot with a first-round submission of Joanne Wood.
