They said what?! Pros react to Curtis Blaydes’ TKO of Junior dos Santos at UFC Raleigh

Many predicted Curtis Blaydes could have TKO’d Junior dos Santos with ground and pound, but not standing up. In a surprising finish to UFC Raleigh’s main event, ‘Razor’ caught the former UFC heavyweight champion with a perfect right hand and then followed it up with a flurry of strikes to warrant a stoppage from the referee in the second round. On Twitter, pro fighters praised his performance.

Fun fact:@RazorBlaydes265 and I both lead the HWT and LHW division in takedowns and I believe TD accuracy also, both from Illinois, and both were Illinois Juco wrestlers.
