UFC Fight Night 168 results: Marcos Rogerio de Lima scores heavy-handed knockout over Ben Sosoli

Ben Sosoli and Marcos Rogerio de Lima faced each other in a Heavyweight clash tonight (Sat., Feb. 22, 2020) at UFC Fight Night 168, which took place inside Spark Center in Auckland, New Zealand.

Big high kick from de Lima opens the fight, and these two are BRAWLING. De Lima is landing the harder shorts, scoring with his left hook inside the exchanges. Jab from de Lima lands, then a head kick slaps off the guard of Sosoli. Another big flurry lands for de Lima, bouncing around the head of Sosoli. As he is moving backwards, de Lima hurls two massive hooks directly into the skull of his Australian opponent, sending him falling face-first to the mat.

“Pezao” landed a few follow-up shots to make it official, but they were largely unnecessary. The Brazilian has a reputation for slug-fests and huge punching power — and he proved it well-deserved!

Result: Marcos Rogerio de Lima defeats Ben Sosoli via knockout at 1:28 of round one
