UFC’s KO of the Week. Edson Barboza vs Beneil Dariush.


Damn, I almost forgot about this knockout and it wasn’t even that long ago. Thanks to the UFC hyping Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Edson Barboza, they posted the ‘KO of the Week’ which features Edson Baboza’s fight with Beneil Dariush.

The fight took place nine months ago in Fortaleza, Brazil. So many wild fights and finishes have happened since then that it completely slipped my mind. I remember watching the fight thinking that Dariush was on his way to winning a decision. He kept pressing forward on Barboza and Edson was having some trouble getting off.

In the second round, Dariush shot in and Barboza timed it perfectly. He hit that nasty jumping knee and added one more to the highlight reel.

It will be interesting to see if he can neutralize Khabib’s ground game on December 30th.
