Edzon Barboza is pretty well known for his highlight skills and his knockout reel, and tonight in Brazil he didn’t disappoint.

During the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 106 (Belfort vs. Gastleum), the Brazilian timed a takedown attempt to perfection and ended the bout with a beautiful flying knee.

His opponent, Beniel Darieush, had been doing well and likely won the first round in the eyes of the judges had no chance to recuperate and Barboza has forced himself back into the rankings at lightweight once again, calling for a rematch with Tony Ferguson.
