Round 1 - Referee Herb Dean in the cage for the evening's bantamweight tournament final. Dodson the southpaw. He lands and early punch, and Dillashaw drops back to the cage. Dillashaw firs a few kicks to the body, but Dodson is very quick early. Chants for both fighters in the crowd. Dillashaw having trouble punching the quick Dodson early on. Dillashaw lands an inside low kick. Doson lands a crisp left and a kick to the body. Dodson lands a left hand, and Dillashaw is rocked. He wobbles as Dodson pounces with a few hammerfists, and that's going to be the fight. Seems to be a good stoppage, as his eyes are anything but clear when he comes to his feet, and he has trouble standing. Crowd boos anyway.
John Dodson def. T.J. Dillashaw via TKO (punches) - Round 1, 1:54.
