UFC Fight Night 192 video: Arman Tsarukyan destroys Christos Giagos in first round

The hype around Arman Tsarukyan continues to grow after a spectacular finish Saturday at UFC Fight Night 192.

Tsarukyan (17-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) utterly steamrolled Christos Giagos (19-9 MMA, 5-5 UFC) in the first round of their lightweight bout at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, landing a clean punch that led to a knockdown and ultimately a flurry that forced referee Herb Dean to step in at the 2: 09 mark of Round 1.

Giagos, who was a heavy betting underdog, performed confidently during the first round. Tsarukyan didn’t seem concerned and waited for his chance to land the nasty left hook that would be the end of the fight.

Tsarukyan came into the fight critical of his body of work in the UFC so far. Although he’s been solid, he has won all three of his UFC victories by decision. He wanted to add a highlight to his resume and he got it.

In his post-fight interview, Tsarukyan stated that he had made a lot more decisions in the last four fights. “Sean Shelby said, ‘You have to finish if you want to grow up.’ Now I did it, and I think I can fight top 10, top five guys. Let’s get started. I am ready. I’m ready to defeat Dan Hooker. Let’s get started. Let’s do it.”
