UFC on ESPN 6: Maycee Barber finishes Gillian Roberston
Heading into this fight, Maycee Barber had already finished off two of her previous UFC opponents via TKO and continued the trend as she knocked out Gillian Robertson in a savage manner within the first round of the fight.
The bout initially started off with a no-touch of gloves between the fighters, as Roberston went for an early takedown only for Barber to dodge it out of the way.
It was just a matter of moments before Barber got Roberston against the fence and started landing a flurry of punches and elbows. Barber continued with the lefts and rights and despite Roberston still being up on her two feet, it was just a matter of seconds before the ref had eventually stepped in.
With Roberston not willing to defend the hard shots, the ref finally calls the fight as Maycee Barber once again finishes off her opponent via another brutal TKO finish and that too in the first round, as well.
