Once upon a time Joe Proctor was a fierce beast cutting through UFC fighters like a hot knife through butter. But that guy is long gone. Instead, we have this version that gets wasted by tough dudes with quick and heavy hands.
Like Magomed Mustafaev.
On the Fight Pass prelim of UFC 194, Proctor came forward with aggression and ill intent, willing to bang it out with strikes from a distance.
Mustafaev had other ideas. Clipping Proctor in the dome just shy of the two-minute mark of the first round, he forced the American to cover up – at which point Mustafaev unloaded with everything until Proctor was slumped against the cage and needed saving.
The official time of the TKO was 1:54 of Round 1.
