UFC Fight Night 128 Results: Kevin Lee Survives Decapitation, Stops Barboza

Technically, when a human body is separated from its head, all parties die. That’s essentially what Brazilian striker Edson Barboza does – he utilizes kicks and knees to knock people’s head off.

But apparently UFC Fight Night 128 opponent and fellow main eventer Kevin Lee is made of sterner stuff, because for sure Barboza decapitated him with a fantastic spinning wheel-kick. Yet somehow Lee survived.

For the first two rounds, Lee did what he was supposed to do: employ his dominant, aggressive wrestling and top game to get Barboza down and batter him relentlessly from mount. Barboza, in his best moments, could only fight to regain half-guard and not get pounded into jelly.

But then in Round 3, seemingly out of nowhere, Barboza threw a spinning wheel-kick (his signature move) that nailed Lee in the head, and Lee was literally doing the Funky Chicken on baby giraffe legs around the Octagon.

Instinct had Lee go full-on wrestle mode, and when he recovered, it was back to getting his opponent down and beating on him.

Eventually, the damage Barboza wore had the doctors stopping things in the fifth round for a cut near his eye.

 

Results: Kevin Lee def. Edson Barboza via TKO (doc stoppage – cut) at 2:18, R5

UFC Fight Night 128 Results: David Branch Scores Upset Knockout Over Thiago Santos

David Branch did well in his run in the World Series of Fighting, but come on, it was the WSOF – how good could someone be there?

Thiago Santos is a Brazilian striker who’s been knocking ’em dead lately. Given Branch’s propensity for being good and methodical at striking but not great, this could be a tough one for the American.

As expected, Santos is all confidence and leg-kicks, and he’s taking big chunks out of Branch’s calf while the jiu-jitsu black belt tries to throw them hands.

And then Branch steps in with an overhand right that catches Santos square on the chin, and Santos is out cold.

Well, that was surprising.
