Todd Duffee today picked up his first victory since August 2009. And it took him just 34 seconds to get it.

The former UFC heavyweight made quick work of recent Bellator fighter Neil Grove in the headliner of today's Super Fight League 2 event.

The show took place in Chandigarh, India, and streamed live on YouTube.

Duffee (6-2), whom the UFC surprisingly released after a May 2010 loss to Mike Russow, fought for the first time since his December 2010 DREAM title loss to Alistair Overeem. In the SFL 2 featured attraction, he lunged forward with punches and connected with a big right hook that sent Grove (11-6-1) to the canvas. A few follow-up punches prompted the stoppage just 34 seconds into the fight...

I hope they listen to Duffee and get him back in the cage in the next 2 months. He has some potential and now some decent experience. I'd like to see him back in the ufc if he can string together a few more wins.

I can't believe it had been nearly three years since Duffee's last win! It seems like just yesterday he KO'd Tim Hague and the hype train started rolling. While I do appreciate this article putting things into perspective, I take exception to the phrasing of this line right here:


....fought for the first time since his December 2010 DREAM title loss to Alistair Overeem.


To me, that sentence almost makes it sound like he was the DREAM champion, which he was not. That fight was for the vacant, previously non-existent DREAM interim heavyweight championship.

In duffee defense he only fought twice during that time with one lost to reem. Nothing to be ashamed of
