In one of the biggest upsets in UFC history, T.J. Dillashaw became the bantamweight champion finishing Renan Barao with a big head kick several hard punches and a flurry of punches on the ground at 2:26 of the the fifth round.
Dillashaw would have been among the biggest underdogs to capture the title and ended the Team Alpha Male streak of winning everything but the title fights.
Dillashaw was in great shape, and Barao was not himself. Barao was clearly not. Dillashaw dominated the entrie fight, nearly finishing Barao in the first. I had Dillashaw up 40-35 going into the fifth round.
