It promised to be an entertaining battle of strikers when Julio Arce met Julian Erosa to start the preliminary card of tonight’s (Sat., May 18, 2019) UFC on ESPN+ 10 from the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York.

The in-cage action did not fail to live up to that billing. And the finish was even more exciting. After a back-and-forth battle, Arce finally emerged victoriously. Out of nowhere, he landed a vicious third-round head kick that frighteningly knocked Erosa out cold.
