Anderson takes out Walker

Walker stuffed a takedown attempt from Anderson not long in, but moments later, the latter floored the surging light-heavyweight with a combo. Anderson swarmed in with more shots, but Walker managed to weather the storm…for a bit.

Walker got back to his feet, but after Anderson tagged him with another booming right, the fight was called. Massive, massive win for Anderson.
