The first is s result of of Alhassan’s right uppercut crushing Homasi’s jaw. The second is Homasi’s head bouncing off the mat as he collapses in an unconscious heap.
For Alhassan (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC), who accepted this rematch after winning a questionable TKO stoppage victory over Homasi (11-8 MMA, 0-3 UFC) in the first fight last month, the goal here was to remove all doubt. Sure seems like a one-punch knockout in the first round ought to accomplish that.
On paper, Alhassan now has two wins over the same opponent in less than two months. So that’s unusual.
At least now the rivalry has been clearly and unambiguously settled, meaning both men can move on to something else. It’s just that Homasi is probably going to need a little more recovery time than Alhassan, who didn’t seem like he was in danger of hurting anything other than maybe his hand.
