UFC Vegas 16 video: Ilia Topuria turns out the lights on Damon Jackson

Ilia Topuria brought a swift halt to Damon Jackson’s octagon comeback, stopping the veteran at the 2:38 mark of the the first round with a fierce combination of punches.

Topuria battered the body before going upstairs, landing a right hand that dropped Jackson. A left hand was entirely unneeded with the UFC vet out cold.

Check out the video.

Topuria was as high as a +300 favorite to beat Jackson, who pulled off a big upset over Mirsad Bektic earlier this year after five years on the smaller circuit.
