Watch: Dan Ige takes out Gavin Tucker in 22 seconds with one-punch knockout
Big win for Hawaii: Dan takes out Gavin Tucker in 22 seconds with one-punch knockout.
The featherweight battle between Dan and Gavin Tucker was one of the most anticipated fights heading into Saturday’s UFC Fight Night card in Las Vegas.
Dan ended what was expected to be a 145-pound slugfest with a single punch just 22 seconds into the fight.
The fighters moved forward to meet in the Octagon’s center when Dan unloaded with an overhand right, connecting clean and sending Tucker crashing to the canvas.
The punch came in the first exchange of the fight and ended the action before it even got started.
The victory was a big one for Dan, who was coming off a loss to Calvin Kattar that snapped a six-fight winning streak.
The knockout was just the second in Dan’s UFC career and should put him right back into position to continue building toward a title run.
