Knockout! Watch Tony Gravely take out Anthony Birchak in the second at UFC Vegas 24

Tony Gravely kept things rolling earlier tonight (Sat., Apr. 17, 2021) at UFC Vegas 24 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nev., when the bantamweight prospect finished veteran Anthony Birchak via second-round TKO (punches).

Despite a brief guillotine attempt by Birchak this “Prelims” opener was all Gravely. The talented bantamweight used his wrestling to take Birchak down, score some points, and sap Birchak’s energy. In Round 2, Gravely was able to land some offense on the feet and cracked Birchak with a vicious left hand. Gravely pounced on top for some insurance shots before the fight was waved off.

This win is Gravely’s second straight under the UFC banner and should allow him to creep towards the top 15 heading into the second half of 2021. It is also Gravely’s seventh TKO finish in his last nine professional wins.
