Raoni Barcelos had an explosive first fight in the UFC that saw him knock out Kurt Holobaugh with a series of massive right hands early in the third round. It was an uppercut, overhand right, uppercut combo right out of a video game that earned him the win.
Holobaugh hung tough right up until the final uppercut which had him falling like a tree. Barcelos closed in for the kill but decided to take a victory lap instead as Holobaugh struggled to get onto his hands and knees.

The official verdict: Raoni Barcelos defeats Kurt Holobaugh via KO at 1:29 of R3.
The win brings Barcelos up to 12-1 in his MMA career and marks the 7th knockout of his career. It’ll be a miscarriage of justice if he’s denied a $50,000 performance of the night bonus.
