UFC on ESPN 2, which is happening live from inside Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania tonight (Saturday, March 30, 2019), is headlined by a Lightweight division fight between two superb leg kickers, the former WSOF 155-pound king Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje and ex-Ring of Combat and Renaissance MMA champ Edson “Junior” Barboza.

The third man inside the Octagon is Keith Peterson. Let the kicking spectacle begin!

Round 1

As expected, Justin Gaethje throws the first leg kick. Another one, and Barboza answers, this is a great match. Head kick, and now uppercut and right hand hurt Barboza. Edson is in big trouble now.

Gaethje continues to pursue Edson, eats a big punch to the head, but continues pressing the Brazilian. Short right hand Gaethje, followed by a right hand, the fighters separate.

Great hook Gaethje, now both fighters trading shots, this is a war! Another big shot, and another! Low kick Justin Gaethje, Edson Barboza replies with a low kick too!

Barboza tries to circle and goes to the fence, but a big right hand sends him to the canvas. A KO win for Justin Gaethje, what a fight!!!
