54 seconds. That’s how long it took heavyweight slugger Stipe Miocic to end the fairytale of a career resurgence of Andrei Arlovski.

The co-main event of UFC 195 saw these two come forward and start gauging distance, Arlovski with oblique kicks and Miocic with his punches.

Then came the right hand to the ear that made Arlovski see stars, and Miocic was on him, dropping him to the canvas with more punches and unleashing fury when the former champ was immobilized on his hands and knees.

With the win via TKO, it’s hard not to imagine Miocic as next in line for a shot at the belt.
