Congrats to Dominance MMA represented athlete Justin Gaethje on a huge win! Here is what happened at UFC Fight Night in Philly live on ESPN:
“One of the most anticipated fights of 2019 lived up to the hype, as Justin Gaethje knocked out Edson Barboza in the first round of their main event bout at UFC Fight Night in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Gaethje (20-2), with Barboza up against the fence, landed a hard right hook that immediately sent his opponent to the mat. Referee Keith Peterson immediately jumped in to signal the bout was over at 2 minutes, 30 seconds.” – ESPN
“After another impressive first-round stoppage, Gaethje was more interested in soaking up his win. Although he did welcome a fight with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC), he didn’t want to get sidetracked by lesser challenges. After his win and on the post-fight show, he railed on a UFC ranking system that had downgraded him.” – MMA Junkie
