UFC 283 video: Brunno Ferreira devastates Gregory Rodrigues for upset knockout

RIO DE JANEIRO – Brunno Ferreira continued the theme of the UFC 283 prelims, where debuting fighters made the most of their first opportunities.

In a middleweight bout he took on eight day’s notice, Ferreira (10-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) knocked out Gregory Rodrigues (13-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC) with a devastating left hand that led to a stoppage at 4:13 of Round 1. The event took place Saturday at Jeunesse Arena.

Ferreira was a moderate underdog in most sportsbooks, but proved the oddsmakers wrong with a single punch.
