Dos Anjos brutalizes Bocek over three rounds
Rafael dos Anjos and Mark Bocek each came into UFC 154: St-Pierre at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday night looking to add to back-to-back victories, trying to find a path towards a title shot.
Their desire showed from the start, both fighters coming out very aggressive, mixing it up on the feet, both finding a home for their knees in particular. Bocek, known for his superior takedowns, had a difficult time hitting them in round one, dos Anjos defending well and, overall, looking much stronger than Bocek.
They came out just aggressive in round two, but Bocek landed a low kick to the groin early in the opening moments, causing a brief stoppage in the action. Surprisingly, dos Anjos scored a takedown upon the restart, keeping him on the mat for a couple minutes, bloodying his face.
