Blaydes, a wrestler with more takedowns than anyone in UFC heavyweight history, never even attempted a takedown instead opting to stand and trade with Daukaus from the opening bell. The pair exchanged some hard blows in a close first round. Though many expected Blaydes to come out wrestling in the second, he continued to look for strikes, landing the straight right hand that dropped his foe just seconds into the round. A few more hard right hands on the ground were enough to convince referee Herb Dean to stop the action giving Blaydes his sixth win in his last seven fights.
