After a break this past weekend, the UFC is back in Las Vegas this week for its next event, which will be headlined by Thomas Almeida vs. Cody Garbrandt. If you talk to any big time fan or MMA pundit, chances are that fight’s on their ‘can’t miss list’.
After all, not only are Garbrandt and Almeida two of the rising stars in the bantamweight division, they’re both dangerous finishers. Mr. Almeida has taken out his last three opponents, and has done so in highlight reel fashion.
Case in point, the UFC has posted Almeida’s stoppage win over Anthony Birchak last November, as the “KO of the Week”. You can check out the violent finish below.
