Dillashaw Beats Barao Like a Rented Mule

T.J. Dillashaw plants Renan Barao
T.J. Dillashaw delivered the single most impressive win I've ever seen last nighty as he overcame ridiculous Vegas odds against him and knocked out Renan Barao to win the title.

But this was no ordinary win.

All fight fans understand that when you're up four rounds to nothing in a five-round outing, you really don't have to do much more than survive the 5th. But Dillashaw's the real deal. He continued to take chances. This was a fight to the finish, and that's what we saw.

Barao (who was 32-1 in his MMA career, and 7-0 in his UFC career) has been called the current, best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. So what does that make T.J., who beat him like a rented mule?
Standing or on the ground, Dillashaw dominated Barao
