VIDEO | One of the most bizarre TKO victories in UFC history took place in Atlantic City
A fight between Merab Dvalishvili and Ricky Simon took place on tonight’s UFC Fight Night 128 preliminary card in Atlantic City.
Dvalishvili’s crisp striking and timely takedowns looked to be to much for UFC newcomer Simon, as Merab dominated the first two rounds of their fight.
However, in the final minute of the fight Simon locked in a mounted guillotine on Marab that had Dvalishvili in all sorts of trouble.
Dvalishvili was able to maintain conciousness by kicking the heels of feet forward until the sound of the final horn.
