The UFC Vegas 35 main event was the setting where the company’s #10 rated featherweight, Giga Chikadze, took out the #9 rated, Edson Barboza, in the third round. The bulk of this fight took place on the feet, until it was almost over. After some back and forth across the first-two frames, Giga unloaded a frenzy of hard straights that badly hurt Barboza. After dropping Edson, Giga threatened with an anaconda and a D’arce choke, before ultimately standing up and finishing the fight with his strikes. What a crazy finishing sequence!
