Kennedy Nzechukwu shocked the MMA world when he knocked out Carlos Ulberg in the second round

Kennedy Nzechukwu made a loud return to the octagon when he knocked out the heavily favored Carlos Ulberg in the second round of his preliminary bout of UFC 259 with a massive right hand on his jaw. Ulberg was highly touted by UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya who fights in the main event on Saturday.

Nzechukwu’s impressive right hand and composure throughout the fight caught the eyes of many MMA fighters including BMF champion, Jorge Masvidal, who dubbed it as a Fight of the Year candidate.

Other professional fighters also took notice of the bout.

The card has been incredible, so far, to say the least all five fights that have taken place have ended in a finish and it’s going to be tough for UFC president Dana White to decide who will take home the Fight Night Bonuses.

There are 15 total fights and the results for each can be found below.
