Davey Grant delivered more Octagon magic earlier tonight (Sat., Mar. 13, 2021) at UFC Vegas 21 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when “Dangerous” stopped talented prospect Jonathan Martinez via second-round knockout (punch).
This lightweight fight was all action from the opening bell as both men landed punches. Martinez started to pull away with heavy leg attacks and even knocked Grant down with a minute left in the first round. Grant regrouped in Round 2 and came out firing with combinations and kicks. Martinez was game to exchange but that left him open to a massive left hook by Grant that stopped “Dragon” in his tracks. Grant scored a few insurance shots before the fight was waved off.

Grant, 35, is coming off a memorable knockout finish over Martin Day back at UFC 251 and has now won his last three fights. The veteran fighter hasn’t fought that much over the past five years, but seems to be in the zone of late. Don’t be surprised if UFC gives “Dangerous” a shot at the top 15 his next time out, especially after another display of knockout power.
