UFC featherweight veteran Edson Barboza reacted after odd his knockout win over Shane Burgos in what was the “Fight of the Night” at UFC 262. Barboza and Burgos went back-and-forth in an absolute war that saw both men sling heavy leather and nasty kicks at each other for as long as the fight lasted. After two competitive rounds, Barboza landed a right hand on Burgos in the third round. It didn’t appear to be a particularly hard shot, but almost immediately Burgos stumbled backwards as his brain shut off and he was knocked out by Barboza’s follow-up punches in the ground. It was a very odd knockout and very concerning for medical officials as Burgos was sent to the hospital following the fight for a CT scan, though apparently, he is feeling better already.
