Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘I don’t know what happened’: Edson Barboza lands bizarre delayed KO as rival staggers on before collapsing at UFC 262 (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Into the third round of their entertaining featherweight contest on the UFC 262 main card at the Toyota Center in Houston, Brazilian star Barboza stepped up the pace as he caught Burgos with a lightning-quick overhand right.
At first Burgos appeared to have eaten the punch as he remained on his feet, arms raised and in fighting pose. But it soon became evident that the blow had taken more of a toll than initially seemed, as a delayed reaction to the concussive strike kicked in and Burgos’ legs began to wobble.
Staggering backwards almost in slow motion, Burgos eventually collapsed, bouncing into the side of the cage and onto the canvas.
Barboza followed in for more strikes but it was evident his rival was already unconscious as the fight was waved off.
“I’ve never seen anything like that in MMA. A delayed reaction KO… Shane is so tough his brain gave out before his will did. Amazing win for Barboza,” wrote pundit Laura Sanko.
