Dhiego Lima wonders, “Are you not entertained?” with UFC 231 KO


It was a beautiful walk-off knockout tonight at UFC 231 for Dhiego Lima over Chad Laprise. Like Maximus in Gladiator, he held his arms wide and wonders, “Are you not entertained?”. Well, sir, we certainly were.

Lima was on a rough losing skid in his first stint with the UFC. He went 1-3 and subsequently was let go by the promotion. Thanks to a ‘Comeback’ Ultimate Fighter season, Lima fought his way back to the UFC… but he lost in the finale and then a fight to Yushin Okami. Things looked bleak for Lima until tonight at UFC 231.

Lima was placed on the UFC Fight Pass Prelims which is basically a make or break platform. A loss tonight on those prelims and Lima would be on his way out. However, Lima wasn’t ready for his walking papers and he dispatched of Chad Laprise in the very first round with a crushing knockout.
