Jimmie Rivera entered the bout on an amazing twenty-fight win streak, but it was Marlon Moraes who would leave the octagon with a spectacular knockout win tonight in New York.

Marlon Moraes was able to connect with a left head kick wh
ich sent Rivera crashing to the canvas just moments into the opening round. From there, Moraes would unleash some solid ground and pound which forced the referee to step in and call a stop to the action.
