Tai Tuivasa got choked out by Tai Tuivasa at UFC 243. 

The two fighters met in a heavyweight bout at the UFC 243 pay-per-view from Sydney, Australia at the Marvel Stadium. The story of the fight was quite simple, 

Tuivasa looked good on his feet in the striking department but couldn’t stay upright as Spivak continued to score takedowns as the fight went on. 

Spivak scored a takedown in the second round and got full mount where he smashed with strikes then locked in the arm-triangle for the win.
