UFC 250 news: Cody Garbrandt's stunning one-punch KO vs Raphael Assuncao

Cody Garbrandt KO'd Raphael Assuncao with just seconds remaining in the second round

Cody Garbrandt secured his first UFC win in three-and-a-half years in stunning style at UFC 250.

The former bantamweight champion delivered possibly the knockout of 2020 so far, flattening Raphael Assuncao in devastating fashion.

With just seconds to go in the second round of the fight, the Ohio-born brawler landed with the sweetest right-hand imaginable.

Assuncao collapsed to the canvas of the Octagon as Garbrandt wheeled away in celebration with the horn blaring in the background.

You can watch the stunning KO in both normal time and slow-motion below.



We’re going to be hard pushed to find a better KO this year. It is the first time since December 2016 that Garbrandt has tasted victory in the Octagon.

A three-fight losing streak – which saw him surrender his UFC bantamweight title to T.J. Dillashaw in November 2017 – was ended in truly spectacular fashion.

Garbrandt’s breathtaking finish was actually the second of a hugely entertaining night of UFC action at the UFC’s Apex Facility in Las Vegas.

Undefeated bantamweight Sean O’Malley delivered a savage one-punch KO of his own against Eddie Wineland with barely two minutes on the clock in the first round.

What a night of action!

Elsewhere, Amanda Nunes outclassed a resilient Felicia Spencer to win by decision in the co-main event of the evening, creating UFC history in the process.

The Brazilian, widely touted as the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all-time, is now the first champion to retain titles in two weight classes while holding both championships at the same time.

Not bad, eh?
