Issei Tamura was impressive in his UFC debut with a stellar second round knockout victory over Tiequan Zhang at UFC 144. He got a big step up in competition in his sophomore appearance in the octagon and came up short, losing to Raphael Assuncao via second round TKO.
The Ultimate Fighter season 14 runner-up, TJ Dillashaw has now won his last two fights inside the octagon since getting stopped in the first round of the season’s finale by John Dodson. Dillashaw has earned back-to-back victories against Walel Watson and most recently a first round submission victory over Vaughn Lee.
