Diego “The Barbarian” Barbosa With The Flying Knee KO

Diego fusion 19 win

With a stacked card at Fusion Fighting Championship 19, Epsom Racecourse, the night seemed to fly by until the main event of the evening. But soon enough it was time for Diego Barbosa who fights out of Nova Forca to take on John Spencer.  Diego was originally fighting for the Featherweight Amateur Title but a last minute change of opponent saw him taking his first professional fight.

Both guys entered the ring and looked more than ready.  Diego seemed to relish every moment of his walk to the cage.

The fight starts with the touching of gloves with both then landing a punch.  Diego lands a leg kick and then goes in with a flying knee that sees John go to ground.  Diego launches a vicious assault using elbows and punches to his downed opponent until the referee stops the fight at just 12 seconds of the very first round.

An ecstatic Diego wasted no time in thanking the support he has from around the world.  He looks hungry and he looks ready to rock the world of professional MMA.  His parting words as he left the cage leave us in no doubt that he means business.

“We are strong, we are coming and we are going to make noise”.

Look out for our post fight interview with Diego coming soon. And to watch mma action live, take a look at www.mmatv.co.uk and never miss a domestic uk or european fight again.
