Tyson Pedro entered his matchup at UFC 278 as a significant favorite, and he needed just over a minute to dispatch Harry Hunsucker.
Kicking off the event’s main card, Hunsucker was making the drop down to light heavyweight after suffering knockout losses in his first two UFC bouts as a heavyweight. Pedro still appeared to have a size advantage, and it wasn’t long before a jab staggered Hunsucker.
The Australian followed up with a front kick to the body that folded the former heavyweight and only required a few punches on the ground to end the bout.

Reactions to the finish indicated that the result was largely expected, although the action was certainly appreciated after the UFC 278 prelims were fairly lackluster.
Pedro has now won 2-straight fights via stoppage after the Australian was previously away from the cage for over 3 years.
