Former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt delivered a spectacular finish at UFC 250 and a new footage of the knockout showed it was one of the cleanest shots in mixed martial arts history.
Fighting for the first time since March 2019, Garbrandt took on Raphael Assuncao in the co-main event of UFC 250 at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, Saturday night.
‘No Love’ announced his return in a stunning fashion as he produced one of the best knockouts seen in the UFC this year (and in recent memory), sending the Brazilian fighter to the shadow realm with a vicious right hand just before the second round came to a close.

Following the win, the 28-year old said: “There’s gonna be so many potential bouts that I can have. So many potential knockout performance bonuses that I’m gonna get in my bank from all these guys. They come out and show up, I’m excited for the bantamweight division. It’s the best division in the UFC.”
Now, a new angle and slowmo of Garbrandt’s knockout has gone viral on social media and fans could not stop watching it.

Cody Garbrandt looked fucking amazing when i watched it back. It definitely could be cause he was never scared of assuncaos power but he did really well with avoiding shots. Im scared when cody faces a guy with power in his hands but its safe to say hes back!
