UFC heavyweight contender Tai Tuivasa had a real opportunity today to showcase his skills as he headlined the UFC Adelaide fight card against Junior Dos Santos at the Adelaide Entertainment Center in Adelaide, Australia.

Tai Tuivasa has been fairly untested at the top level and this was supposed to be his first real competition against former champion and experienced Brazilian star JDS. However, things didn’t seem to go his way as in the 2:30 seconds of the second round, JDS scored a TKO and handed the undefeated Sydney native the first loss of his professional career.

This win was very important for JDS as the Brazilian knockout artist has gone 4-3 inside the Octagon since losing his title to Cain Velasquez at UFC 166 in October of 2013.

In the opening round, Tai Tuivasa managed to stun JDS and landed heavy punches, but JDS turned the tide around in Round 2 as he hit Tuivasa with a counter left hook and then dropped him with a right hand on the canvas. He then pounded on Tai and landed a barrage of punches and elbows until referee Herb Dean had to intervene and stop the fight.

This fight will be a learning curve for the 25-year old as he will have to be very careful in his fights and not be reckless. Meanwhile, JDS was extremely happy with his performance.

My gosh, man, I’m so happy,” dos Santos said. “This guy’s tough, I knew he was tough. He kicked me very hard in the legs and I’m feeling it now.

He is now on a two-fight winning streak and has improved his record to 20-5.

On Twitter fans and pros enjoyed the fight.
