Miles Johns captured the biggest win of his professional MMA career earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 31, 2020) at UFC Vegas 12 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, when he ended Octagon newcomer Kevin Natividad via third-round knockout (punch).
Johns was in control of this fight from the opening bell. Natividad did well to defend multiple takedown attempts along the cage, but he couldn’t stop Johns’ lead jab and left hook attacks.
“Chapo” was well on his way to capturing a unanimous decision win on the scorecards until he caught Natividad sleeping in the third round. Johns planted a beautiful uppercut inside that knocked Natividad’s mouthpiece out and sent him rocketing to the canvas like Johns hit him with a Stone Cold Stunner.

With this performance, Johns gets back into the bantamweight win column after getting finished by Mario Bautista back in February. “Chapo” is one of the more physically-gifted fighters at 135 pounds so it will be interesting to see where he goes from here, especially if he can keep finishing opponents in vicious fashion.
