Edson Barboza did exactly what the powers that be at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hoped he would when he delivered a highlight reel finish of Evan Dunham in the co-main event of last night's (Wed., July 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 45: "Cerrone vs. Miller" broadcast on Fox Sports 1 from Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Seriously, look at that kick. The toes catch under the ribs and Dunham drops like a stone. He had no other choice but to barrel over the way he did because, as color commentator Brian Stann so helpfully explained, the body simply shuts down when you get kicked in the liver.
You can tell. Absolutely brutal finish.
Amazingly enough, Barboza was not awarded $50,000 for his efforts. He may have been snubbed when bonuses were handed out (find out who took those three prizes here) but this finish will be replayed on highlight reels for years to come.
