Unfortunately for English Lightweight standout Terry Etim the very first wheel kick KO in UFC history just so happened to land directly on his face. Edson Barboza did the honors and it earned him an extra 130K in Fight on the Night and KO of the Night bonuses. Etim also got 65K for his troubles.
Barboza has been making waves in the promotion ever since his unforgettable TKO leg kick arsenal against Mike Lullo back at the Palace of Auburn Hills in the fall of 2010. After taking two straight in RIO we are certainly looking at one of the most exciting and possibly one of the most dangerous 155'ers in the world today.
