CHAMPIONSHIP TRILOGY! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to The O2 in London England, on Sat., March 18, 2023, with newly-minted Welterweight kingpin, Leon Edwards, running it back with former 170-pound champion, Kamaru Usman, for a third (and likely final) time. In UFC 286’s pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, all-action Lightweight knockout artists, Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev, will lock horns with the winner inching closer to a future Lightweight title shot.

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

Tafa was the betting favorite coming into this fight given his proven punching power and he certainly didn’t disappoint in front of a home crowd. Porter was active inside but when he came straight down the line Tafa countered with a left hand followed by a partial right. Porter toppled to the canvas in defeat.

Check out the final moments below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Tafa, 29, collects yet another first-round finish after taking out Harry Hunsucker back in Dec. 2021. It’s been a while since “Bad Man” stepped foot inside of the Octagon so it was nice to see him deliver the goods yet again. If Tafa can remain active he’ll be a fun watch in an evolving heavyweight division in 2023.
