Conor McGregor’s team didn’t have a great night at UFC: Glasgow. Gunnar Nelson was quickly knocked out by Santiago Ponzinibbio and Charlie Ward (who was one-half of the tragic event that ended with the death of João Carvalho), was knocked out by being slammed face first into the Octagon’s mat. We’ve seen body slam knockouts before. Rampage Jackson and Gerald Harris perfected this.
But what the 5-2 welterweight newcomer Galore Bofando did on the undercard is unprecedented. Just when you think a card is skippable, or you’ve seen everything, UFC: Glasgow delivers with some wild action and an incomprehensible highlight. Look at the moment of impact!
Not only does it look bad, it sounded even worse. You can hear Ward smack through the arena. Dan Hardy is blown away by this monstrous power by Bofando. Every fighter walks into a fight knowing that just about anything can happen, but no one goes in expecting to be thrown flat on their face for a knockout loss. It’s truly incredible.

Galore needs to develop a persona around his name. Highlights and face smacks Galore. Something like that.
