Danaa Batgerel looked like a straight killer earlier tonight (Sat., Apr. 24, 2021) at UFC 261 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., when the Mongolian fighter stopped Kevin Natividad via first-round TKO (punches) just 50 seconds into the fight.
Natividad looked to be the quicker and more engaging fighter from the opening bell but it would come back to bite him. The first true inside exchange by Natividad allowed Batgerel to launch a beautiful left-hand counter that caught Natividad directly on the chin. He fell to the canvas and Batgerel pounced on top for the finish.

This is a massive showing by Batgerel after coming off a first-round knockout finish over Guido Cannetti back in Mar. 2020. The bantamweight power puncher could earn a shot at the top 15 after this performance and could quickly climb the rankings if he keeps catching opponents on the chin.
