Aljamain Sterling just took on former two-time champion TJ Dillashaw in the co-main event at UFC 280.

Round one started at a high pace. Dillashaw seemed to have trouble with a shoulder injury. Aljamain landed huge ground and pound. TJ was miraculously able to fight through the round.

The second round, TJ could only punch with his right hand until Aljo took him down. Halfway through the round Dillashaw’s shoulder seemed to pop again. He was clearly compromised and Sterling landed heavy ground and pound until the referee stopped the fight.

“Someone had to eat shit,” Sterling said in the post fight interview.
