Highlights! Edmen Shahbazyan smokes Dalcha Lungiambula with nasty TKO | UFC 282 video

UFC’s 2023 PPV DEBUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off its New Year pay-per-view (PPV) campaign on Sat., Jan. 21, 2023, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Glover Teixeira, looking to stop the momentum of surging No. 7-seeded up-and-comer, Jamahal Hill. In the co-main event of UFC 283, which will take place inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one of the greatest rivalries in promotional history resumes as Flyweight kingpin, Deiveson Figueiredo, battles interim belt keeper, Brandon Moreno, for a fourth (and likely final) time.

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

Shahbazyan had not fought in over one year and was going up against a truly powerful middleweight in Lungiambula so the former contender took his time. From front kicks to short jabs down the middle, Shahbazyan was able to score in spots when he launched his offense. Lungiambula returned favor with some heavy body kicks, but nothing Shahbazyan couldn’t shake off. Late into the second round Shahbazyan landed a series of knees that softened Dalcha up and allowed “Golden Boy” to find the TKO stoppage on the ground.

Check out the finish below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Shahbazyan, 25, was riding a three-fight losing streak and had not won since a knockout over Brad Tavares back in 2019 so this was a big victory for the middleweight striker. Hopefully this performance gives Shahbazyan the momentum he needs to start working his way back into the division’s top 15.
