BARBOZA'S KO OF ETIM NAMED "KO OF THE HALF-YEAR" BY MMAFIGHTING.COM

June 15, 2012

In what can only be deemed as the least surprising news of the year, MMAFighting.com has named Edson Barboza's wheel kick knockout of Terry Etim as "Knockout of the Half-Year."  The kick came during UFC 142 in Brazil, where VFD Sports star Barboza spun around and launched the heel of his foot directly into the side of Etim's head.  It was light-out for Etim from that point on, as Barboza cooly walked away knowing his fight-night bonus was guaranteed.

 

With six months remaining in the year, it seems like a lock that no UFC fighter will best Barboza's effort, so let's just go ahead of give him "Knockout of the Year" or even "Knockout of the Decade" already.
