The Craziest End To A UFC Fight Ever? Cody Garbrandt And Pedro Munhoz Engage In Stunning All Out War At UFC 235
Jon Jones stole most of the headlines at UFC 235 last night in Las Vegas but there is no doubt that the fight of the night came further down the stacked card.
The bantamweight clash between Cody Garbrandt and Pedro Munhoz was flowing along nicely until the pair engaged in one of the most explosive finishes to a fight in UFC history.
It was a massive night for the American Garbrandt with the former champion looking to get his career back on track after two successive losses which has seen his star slide. The 27-year-old appeared to be in control of the fight heading into the last minute and a smart last few seconds from "No Love" would have seen him secure the win and get his name right back in the mix at the highest level.
Cody clearly wasn't thinking clearly though as he managed to get engaged in a monster slug fest with Munhoz who needed the KO to stop the right and the two men stood and traded in a remarkable finish to the fight which has of course gone viral.
It was Munhoz who withstood some bombs from Garbrandt before landing one if his own which sent the American crashing to the canvas.
"The Young Punisher" saw his opportunity to claim the fight and punched on his stricken opponent which saw the referee jump in and stop the fight in stunning circumstances.
Garbrandt was the subject of huge criticism in the wake of the fight but he defended himself fiercely for getting involved when it wasn't needed..
"“I got head butted and after the head butt I was on auto pilot, congrats to Pedro he stuck tough. I love this fight game. I’ll be back thank you to all my supporters means a lot!” – Cody Garbrandt after his KO loss at UFC 235."
