Chikadze Stops Barboza at UFC Fight Night
Giga Chikadze continued his unbeaten run in the UFC stopping veteran Edson Barboza in the third round of their UFC on ESPN 30 featherweight main event Saturday night from Las Vegas. Two of the best kickers in the sport engaged in a kicking duel for much of the bout with Barboza landing some hard leg kicks while Chikadze scored several punishing body kicks. But it was the punches that finally won it in the third as Chikadze follow a knee to the body with a right hand to the head that staggered Barboza. After a scramble on the ground they returned to their feet where a final flurry of punches from Chikadze quickly ended matters.

The undercard featured the conclusion of The Ultimate Fighter Season 29. Ricky Turcios earned a split decision in an action packed battle with Brady Hiestand to capture the bantamweight finals while Bryan Battle submitted Gilbert Urbina in the second round to win the middleweight finals.
