Roman Dolidze TKO Jack Hermansson
For the most part, Hermansson seemed to be in command of the bout, employing his off-rhythm punching to keep Dolidze off balance for most of the match. When the two collided on the canvas in the second round, the big Georgian attacked from his back, locking in a calf slicer before forcing Hermansson onto his belly, where he couldn’t escape.
