The UFC Mexico main card began with a bang.

Featherweights Steven Peterson and Martin Bravo engaged in an entertaining, high-paced bout, but it was Bravo who was getting the better of Peterson for much of the contest. All of Peterson’s fortunes changed early in round two, as Bravo threw a spinning backfist that missed, but Peterson attempted the same strike and landed flush. Instant KO.

Watch below! I insist you watch it now.

Here’s our play-by-play of the finish:

Round 2 - Peterson comes out aggressively and throws a flying knee. Sharp right hand by Peterson, but he gets overly aggressive and Bravo ducks under and complets a takedown. Peterson regains his footing but eats a body kick and right hand along the way. Body kick by Bravo but a right hand from Peterson. Nice right hand from Bravo. HUGE SPINNING BACKFIST BY PETERSON AND BRAVO IS OUT COLD! MY GOODNESS! Bravo threw a spinning backfist and missed, Peterson countered with the same strike and wiped him out.
