Earlier tonight (Sat. March 23, 2019) UFC Nashville went down from the Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee.

In the main event of the evening, former UFC lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis made a thunderous debut at 170 pounds. He knocked out two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Pettis pulled off a superman punch after bouncing off the Octagon cage.

It was a classic “Showtime” highlight-reel finish. Check out how the mixed martial arts (MMA) community reacted to the amazing knockout here:
