Michael Trizano turned in a memorable performance earlier tonight (Sat., Nov. 12, 2022) at UFC 281 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, as the former Ultimate Fighter winner stopped featherweight gamer Seungwoo Choi with a first-round TKO (punches).

YEAR-END PPV BLOWOUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) closes out its final pay-per-view (PPV) of the year on Sat., Dec. 10, 2022, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Jan Blachowicz, looking to stop the momentum of No. 3-seeded Magomed Ankalaev. In the co-main event of UFC 282, which will take place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, breakout star, Paddy Pimblett, intends to keep his momentum going at the expense of gritty veteran, Jared Gordon.

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

This fight had it all. After a rare double knockdown occurred just 20 seconds into the first round Trizano scored another one minutes later. Choi would return to his feet and battled back with his own offense. He had Trizano hurt after landing a hook, but the New York native recovered to stop Choi in his tracks with a hook of his own. It was five minutes of madness.

This happened to be the last fight on Trizano’s UFC contract so it was the perfect time to pull out a memorable scrap inside MSG. It’s likely that the promotion re-signs Trizano after this type of performance, which will give the 30-year-old a little more time to sink his feet into the stacked featherweight division.
