The RAC Arena in Perth, Australia played host to a heavyweight scrap between hometown here Justin Tafa and Parker Porter at UFC 284. Tafa looked to make it two in a row after delivering a highlight-reel first-round head kick KO of Harry Hunsucker in December 2021. Parker Porter’s three-fight win streak came to an end after a first-round submission loss to Jailton Almeida in May. He entered the Octagon intent on getting back into the win column and quieting the raucous Australian crowd on Saturday night.
Tafa comes out throwing a right hand early. Porter responds with a right of his own. Nice little combination by Porter, throwing a 1-2 followed by a low kick. Porter moves in and runs right into the left hand of Tafa that immediately puts his lights out 66 seconds into the bout.
Official Result: Justin Tafa def. Parker Porter via KO (strikes) at 1:06 of Round 1
