Look out welterweights, Gilbert Urbina has arrived.

Urbina, 27, squared off with Orion Cosce on the prelims of Saturday’s UFC Vegas 73 event and “The RGV Bad Boy” delivered in a big way, trouncing Cosce en route to a second-round finish.

In the first round, Urbina dominated the action, securing a pair of takedowns and advancing to mount and back mount, where he delivered a brutal beating to Cosce. The Team Alpha Male fighter was able to survive the round, but things went from bad to worse in the second when Urbina landed a nasty front kick to the body that folded Cosce like a lawn chair. A couple of perfunctory follow-up knees forced referee Kerry Hatley to jump in and rescue Cosce at 2:55 of the second round.

The win was Urbina’s first in the UFC, after losing in the middleweight finals of The Ultimate Fighter 29, and makes BMF Ranch fighter a going concern at 170 pounds.
