Edson Barboza Pulls of Electric Knockout at UFC Kansas City, Fans go Crazy

Edson Barboza , a former Lightweight fighter, moved to Featherweight in order to achieve his Championship ambitions for 2020. The Brazilian veteran has struggled to adapt to his new weight class. In the co-main fight at UFC on ESPN 44 he faced Billy Quarantillo. Barboza lost his previous two fights before the Quarantillo fight. The fight ended in a classic Edson barboza fashion with a knockout.

Quarantillo began the fight by applying a lot of pressure. He pushed Barboza up against the cage, and even attempted two takedowns. Barboza, however, kept his cool and continued to land strikes from his back. Quarantillo had been applying pressure and was having success. He became aggressive in his search for a takedown. This proved to be his fatal flaw. Barboza successfully countered Quarantillo’s takedown attempt by delivering a well-timed kick that knocked him out.

Edson Barboza now has nine knockouts to his name in the UFC. In 2017, he knocked Beneil Darieush out in the same manner. The fight fans were delighted to see that the veteran Brazilian was still knocking out people at 37 years old. Barboza thanked his fans for creating such an amazing atmosphere and motivating him. He revealed that the sequence was part of his training, and thanked his Muay Thai coach for helping to strategize the fight.

Billy Quarantillo has suffered yet another defeat in his UFC Career. Barboza’s knee was timed perfectly and he won the fight.
