A key middleweight bout featuring Jack Hermansson taking on Jared Cannonier headlined today’s UFC Copenhagen event in Denmark.
Jack Hermansson (20-5 MMA) entered tonight’s event on a four-fight winning streak, his latest being a unanimous decision victory over former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo Souza this past April.
Since joining the UFC ranks in September of 2016, ‘The Joker’ has gone 7-2 which includes five stoppage victories.
Meanwhile, Jared Cannonier (13-4 MMA) came into UFC Copenhagen on a two-fight win streak. In his most recent effort at UFC 237, ‘The Killa Gorilla’ had defeated MMA legend Anderson Silva via first-round TKO.
Tonight’s UFC Copenhagen main event did not disappoint as Cannonier and Hermansson began trading shots right from the opening horn. After a solid opening first round, ‘The Killa Gorilla’ was able to finish ‘The Joker’ in round two. Cannonier caught Hermansson with a punch while he was trying to press forward, which sent Jack crashing to the Octagon canvas. After a couple of follow up shots, the bout was mercifully called off by the referee.
