Cody Garbrandt Viciously Knocked Out In Craziest Round Of The Year At UFC 235
Cody Garbrandt vs. Pedro Munhoz was a barn burner.
UFC 235 lived up to its billing. We had Johnny Walker obliterating Misha Cirkunov inside one-minute, Zabit Magomedsharipov going full matrix on Jeremy Stephens, a controversial UFC debut for Ben Askren and a UFC belt changing hands as Kamaru Usman dethroned Tyron Woodley.
Not to mention a wild, wild scrap between Garbrandt and Munhoz.
The ex-UFC bantamweight champion was looking to get back in the win column following devastating back-to-back losses to TJ Dillashaw.
But he failed to record a victory with his outing lasting just one crazy round.
With around 40-seconds left on the clock, Garbrandt unleashed a flurry of shots, rocking his Brazilian opponent in the process.
Though Munhoz fired back with his own big shots as the pair went toe-to-toe in an insane slug-fest.

Munhoz is now riding a three-fight win streak and records the biggest scalp of his UFC career.
Garbrandt, on the other hand, is on a three-fight losing skid.
Naturally, both men pocketed an extra $50,000 (£38,000) for picking up 'Fight of the Night' bonuses.
