Daniel Cormier retained the light heavyweight title Saturday night with what proved to be a dominant win over upstart challenger Volkan Oezdemir .
Cormier (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) took Oezdemir (15-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) out with a second-round TKO that stemmed from a takedown, which turned into an onslaught of ground-and-pound that the challenger had no defense for. The stoppage came at the 2-minute mark of the second round.
The light heavyweight title bout was the co-main event of today’s UFC 220 card at TD Garden in Boston. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
