Raoni Barcelos finishes Kurt Holobaugh with blistering combination at UFC Boise

Not satisfied with a win on the scorecards, Raoni Barcelos took matters into his own hands.

The debuting Brazilian featherweight capped off a solid performance on the preliminary portion of UFC Boise on Saturday by slamming home several power punches on the jaw of opponent Kurt Holobaugh, putting a stop to their fight at the 1:29 mark of round three:

Each hit was harder than the last, and there was no coming back for Holobaugh after he was clipped by a home run uppercut right down the middle. Barcelos picked up his seventh career KO, his fifth consecutive win, and improved his pro record to 12-1.

Holobaugh, a former Titan FC standout who competed on season one of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, falls to 0-2 in the Octagon (he competed once for the UFC in 2013) and 17-5 (1 NC) overall.
