UFC 281 video: Michael Trizano survives near-double knockout, stops Seung Woo Choi


Four times in the first round, Michael Trizano or Seung Woo Choi hit the canvas. Once, both of hit the canvas at the same time when their left hooks each found the target. It was a wild opening to a wild fight.

But the final knockdown was the most definitive, and it was in favor of The Ultimate Fighter 27 winner, who checked Choi with a hook that sent the South Korean to the ground at the 4:51 mark of the opening frame.

Check out this highlight reel finish.

Trizano who lost weight during the contest will not be eligible for any bonus. A betting underdog heading into the fight, and a soon-to-be father, he likely saved his spot on the UFC roster after a 1-3 run in his past four outings.

Tirazo and Choi were both able to get up from the start. However, Trizano took a strong right hand to the canvas. Choi was surprised by this surprise after he had been headhunting repeatedly with a broad left hook.

Trizano stood up, continued his fight, and began picking off Choi’s set-ups using his right hand. He would not be satisfied with one more brain-rattling punch. Another shot left him on the edge of the octagon. Choi didn’t stop overextending and he reverted to his winning strategy, which caught him before he could hit the ground.

The left hook put Choi on the canvas, and follow up shots sealed the deal. Choi, a significant betting favorite, now has dropped three straight fights in the octagon.
