Video: Ricardo Ramos stops Aeimann Zahabi with wicked spinning elbow at UFC 217

The UFC 217 curtain jerker was up for grabs heading into the final frame, and Ricardo Ramos claimed the victory in definitive fashion.

Ramos, a 22-year-old Brazilian prospect, shook off a lethargic second round to connect with a spinning elbow right on the chin of Aiemann Zahabi. It was the second such strike that Ramos had attempted within a short window and repetition proved to be the key to his success.

Ramos’s first finish inside the Octagon improves his record to 11-1, while Zahabi loses for the first time in eight pro bouts.
