UFC on ESPN 2: Justin Gaethje floors Edson Barboza
Justin Gaethje (20-2-0) caught Edson Barboza (20-7-0)Â with a devastating right hand to earn a convincing first round TKO win at UFC on ESPN 2 last night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Barboza used his trademark leg kicks in the early going along with strikes but Gaethje ate them and returned fire that then sent the Brazilian on the defensive. A right hand caught Barboza backing up and forced referee Keith Peterson to call the bout at 2:30 of the first frame. Barboza and Gaethje earned Fight of the Night while Paul Craig and Jack Hermansson earned performances of the night. Each fighter earned a $50,000 USD bonus.
