Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

The UFC’s return to San Jose was an exciting one that featured an array of exciting battle that quenched the thirst of fight fans in the Bay Area.

In the co-main event of the evening, Anthony Johnson continued his march through the light-heavyweight ranks with a vilonet first round knockout over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Read Dallas Winston’s play-by-play for the entire fight:

Johnson wobbles Nogueira with a wide left and then wades forward to hammer a clean uppercut that snaps the Brazilian’s head back. Johnson stay on the trigger and the referee mercifully intervenes after a quadruple-sandwich of clubbing rights.
