UFC on ESPN 2 ‘Barboza vs. Gaethje’ Results – Justin Gaethje Knocksout Edson Barboza in Round 1
Despite exchanging heavy leg kicks in the opening seconds of the round, it was only a matter of time for Justin to land one of his vicious right hand that could end the fight any instance. And it came at 2:30 secs of the first round. Justin’s flurry of punches sent Barboza backward up against the cage but the Brazilian was quick enough to tie up Justin in a clinch and land a hard counter punch. Justin unfazed just kept moving forward and neither the leg kicks or the punches could keep him away. Barboza intelligently circled away but gave away his chin to the hard right hand.
