On This Day: Edson Barboza brutally KO’s Terry Etim

January 14, 2016 9:00 am by Evan Bell

On this day 4 years ago, Edson Barboza and Terry Etim kicked off the main event of UFC 142 in Rio de Janeiro.

The fight appeared to be going to a judges decision, however with just 2 minutes left in the fight, Barboza landed a flawless wheel kick that left Etim starched.

The kick was enough to not only earn Barboza ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors, but ultimately the ‘Knockout of the Year’ as well.
