Watch: Justin Gaethje Blasts Through Edson Barboza In One Round

Justin Gaethje lived up to his billing in the UFC Philadelphia main-event as he worked his magic on Edson Barboza in the opening round.

Gaethje may well be the most exciting fighter in the history of the UFC.

With more Performance Of The Night bonuses in his pocket than he has UFC fights, The Highlight managed to score his second straight first-round KO with an absolute destruction of Edson Barboza.

The fight started off as you would have hoped, as both guys exchanged their patented leg-kicks before Justin really started to turn the heat up on his Brazilian adversary.

When the knockout came, it was clean and it was just a brutal as you would expect – a one-shot KO worthy of the man’s slowly growing legend.

The post-fight interview was just complete and utter Gaethje-ness from the former WSOF champion.

I think Michael Chiesa managed to hit the nail on the head with his take on the star of the show.
