Roland Dunlap returned to the cage for the first time in over two years this evening at LFA 104 for a middleweight bout with Obinwa Ikebunna.
The contest resulted in ‘knockout of the year’ contender finish, as in the opening round Dunlap (2-0 MMA) managed to pick up and slam Ikebunna (2-2 MMA) down to the canvas, sending him into a state of unconsciousness. The brutal Rampage Jackson-like slam was followed by a series of seemingly unnecessary elbows until the referee finally got in there to stop the fight.
