Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

This “Prelims” clash started out sort of slow as both fighters tried to find their range. Villante was more patient than usual, but he didn’t land much. It allowed Barnett to find his rhythm and launch a ridiculous spinning wheel kick in the second round. The kick caught Villante on the top of the head and the New York native fell to the canvas. Barnett followed up with a barrage of strikes before the referee stepped in for the TKO stoppage.
