Jack Hermansson suffers tough TKO loss against Roman Dolidze
Swedish Jack “The Joker” Hermansson just took a tough loss against short notice replacement Roman Dolidze at UFC Orlando.
The Swede started strong, landing chopping leg kicks and securing a takedown in the first round.
However, after Hermansson took the fight to the ground in the second round, Dolidze capitalized on the position, threatening with an armbar and a triangle, eventually turning things around.
With less than a minute left, the Georgian landed heavy ground-and-pound that eventually forced the referee to stop the fight.
In the post-fight interview, the dangerous Georgian, who has four wins in a row, called out Khamzat Chimaev.
“With all respect, Khamzat,” Dolidze said. “For sure someone top ranked.”
“First of all, I’m a grappler. World champion grappling but I can knock people out. I’m a self-made grappler. It’s just natural.”
