UFC Fight Night 235 video: Charles Radtke thumps Gilbert Urbina, sends message to Leon Edwards

LAS VEGAS – Charlie Radtke showed power in his hands Saturday at UFC Fight Night 235 when he became the first to knock out Gilbert Urbina.

After a standup affair for a few minutes into the first round, Radtke (9-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) landed his first big shot that dropped Urbina (7-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC). He followed up with another knockdown moments later, and the referee stepped in to wave off the welterweight bout at the 4:47 mark of Round 1 at the UFC Apex.

With Belal Muhammad in his corner, Radtke thinks he is part of a team that is the future of the 170-pound division. He said he is coming for the top next year, and issued a warning to current champ Leon Edwards.

“Champ 2025,” Radtke said in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier. “Belal’s going to get that title and I’m coming right back after it. Leon Edwards, watch your ass.”
