The UFC Kansas City co-main event ended in spectacular fashion when the promotion’s #14 ranked featherweight, Edson Barboza, ruined the unranked Billy Quarantillo’s night with a beautiful knee to counter a takedown. Billy went down on impact, and one academic strike scored before the referee was able to stop the match. This was the perfect reminder to everyone that there are levels to this sport, and how Barboza is still one of the best.
