Well regular readers, let's say this: Pass the salt please, because never in history has eating crow been so much fun.
Dillashaw came to Vegas as a man possessed, beating the brakes off of champion Renan Barao for four rounds before finishing him in the fifth. To say it was impressive doesn't even kind of do it justice, as there was never a moment that the outcome was in doubt. It was all Dillashaw from bell to bell, round to round and wire to wire.
Game over. New champion. Thanks for coming out.
There was no question that Dillashaw had the tools to be great, but one had to wonder about his degree of seasoning going in. Apparently that was a total waste of time, though, because Dillashaw was beyond ready.
This was not only a major upset, it was executed in historic fashion. Challengers don't often take titles from champions the way Dillashaw did, so it's nothing but praise for the Alpha Male product.
