UFC on ESPN 2 took place from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania earlier tonight (Sat. March 30, 2019).
In the main event of the evening, Justin Gaethje pulled off a spectacular knockout victory over Edson Barboza. Both men came into the first round and fired off some heavy shots. Leg kicks played a huge factor for both men, as expected, in the opening minutes.
However, Gaethje quickly made it a dog fight against the Brazilian. He was able to catch Barboza with a huge right hook as he was backing away. The blow rendered Barboza unconscious and ended his night early. The finish was certainly one of the better ending sequences of the night.
