A spectacular image was experienced this Saturday afternoon, when Jarjis Danho knocked out Yorgan de castro. In the UFC Vegas 23, both arrived with the hope of being the one to leave with their hands raised. As in almost all contests, only one of the two can fulfill that wish, unless there is a draw. On this occasion, one ended up sleeping on the canvas in an impressive way.
It was in the second round that the final blow came, the one that gave the spectacular victory to Jarjis Danho. After five years outside the most important octagon in the world, the aforementioned returned with all the power possible to exploit his rival. After a hellish right hand in the hundred of Yorgan de castro, who fell without any sense, there was another blow to finish everything.
After the magnificent knockout of Yorgan de Castro (6-3-0) over Justin Tafa in 2019, everything went downhill for him. He lost to Greg Hardy and Carlos Felipe, so he was looking for a win, which did not come. On the sidewalk in front, Jarjis Danho (6-1-1) appeared after his last fight in 2016. The last one with a positive balance was against Stefan Traunmueller in 2015. Now, he will surely return home very happy.
After the victory, the winner said: “It is a great feeling to come back and win in this way. I waited so long, I needed to go back like this. It was a great hand that entered. I felt it the moment I hit him. Automatically I realized that that hand had come in strong. This is very crazy. I trained really hard for five years, came back and finished it. It was a long time that I was outside.
