UFC and DREAM veteran Todd Duffee scored an impressive 34 second knockout over UK based South African, Neil Grove, who at 41, was looking to go out with a bang at the second Super Fight League show in Chandigarh, India.

Duffee who is a fearsome striker and a talented wrestler looked for an early takedown but stalked Grove until he unloaded with a right bomb dropping the South African and after some quick ground and pound referee Herb Dean called an end to the fight.

Duffee who still holds one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history at seven seconds snapped a two fight losing streak and at only 26 years of age, still has a bright future ahead of him.

“AKA is the best gym, I’ve been at a lot of gyms in the country and that’s a team,” Duffee said.
“It was a really rough camp, there was a lot of bad stuff that went on, by they [AKA] got me through it.”

In the co-feature bout and the only female bout on the card American, Colleen Schneider scored a 2nd round TKO win over England’s Cherie Buck who took the fight on just a weeks notice after her previously scheduled fight fell through.

Schneider took Buck down early in the second round before moving to side control where she was able to land ground and pound with the referee Yuji Shimada calling an end to the fight at 2:29 of the second round.

In other action Alexander Shlemenko made his intentions clear that he wants a rematch with Bellator middleweight champion, Hector Lombard after stopping Ikuhisa Minowa in the opening round.

Shlemenko landed at will in the opening half of round 1 before landing a knee to the head of Minowa which he followed up with body shots, with Minowa unable to continue. The fight was stopped at 2:20 of round 1.

Shlemenko issued a strong warning post fight to Hector Lombard, “Hey India, Hector I kill you.”
