Really loved seeing that. Less GSP and sitting in half guard for 5 rounds. If you dominate then you should finish. How many times were Barao and Burger finished?? Anyone can be finished if you are dominate enough and actually want to finish instead of having insane level of safety in your fight.

Biggest props to TJ since he could have easily coast last round but instead he choose to go for the kill, put his chin out there and risk this huge win in a brawl 3 minute before getting a title. That kid has some balls

Yeah Hendo is super easy to finish.

I was shocked when DC didn't do it inside 2 minutes.

Agreed, I gained a ton of respect for TJ(although I already held him in high regard). He could have easily just coasted but he was coming at Barao in the 5th round like it was the 1st round, when he knew it was in the bag as far as the scores go. Great killer instinct

I think that's the best way though, just to keep doing what you're doing.

Hell yes, agree totally - definitely bonus worthy spirit shown - that's what fans want to see
