Held this Saturday (31) in Las Vegas (USA), the preliminary UFC card, which is led by Anderson Silva’s farewell fight for the sport, featured fast and exciting duels. And among the several knockouts performed, the highlight was on account of Dustin Jacoby, who finally appeared again at the organization.
After almost nine years, the athlete achieved his redemption. Fired from the UFC in January 2012 after accumulating two straight losses, the American competed in several MMA organizations and competed in professional kickboxing until he acquired enough experience to return to the most famous octagon in the world.
And to prove that he deserved another chance, Dustin participated in the ‘Contender Series’ in August, when he won his duel and signed a new contract with the event. This Saturday (31), at the UFC Apex facilities, the 32-year-old athlete returned to the cage and fulfilled his goal with perfection: knockout victory in the first round.
Worse for Justin Ledet, who after being undermined by kicking his legs, ended up knocked out with a streak of punches that stamped his fourth straight loss on the show. Therefore, his stay in the UFC is at serious risk.
